Introducing our festive decorating competition!

December 7, 2009

The holiday season! A time for family and friends, extra calories and, of course, decorations. Houses, gardens, tables, streets… everything gets a makeover!

Here at Playfish we know how creative you guys are and how much you love decorating, both in Playfish games and in real life. “So!” We thought “How about a festive decorating competition!” And that’s what we did!

It’s clear you like to create all kinds of amazing ideas so we don’t want to limit you too much – maybe you’d like to make your home in Pet Society look just like your home in real life with all its traditional decorations?

Or perhaps you could use inspiration from your favourite Playfish game to make decorations in real life: Restaurant City greetings cards, Country Story tree decorations, Crazy Planets wrapping paper…

There’s no limit to what you can do, just take the concept of Playfish style festive decoration and see where it takes you!

There’s some great prizes up for grabs for our favourite Playfish style decorations so we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Now here’s the best bit: this time we’re looking for 20 decoration masters! Yup, that’s right! 20 winners who’ll all get amazing prizes! What prizes?

Well how does this sound: a Playfish 2010 calendar, a goody bag of Playfish and EA merchandising, plus the following prizes:

1st place wins “Apple I-Pod Touch 8GB”, 2nd place 500 PFC, 3rd place 250 PFC, from 4th to 10th place 100 PFC and from 11th to 20th place 50 PFC.

We’ll be taking entries until December 23rd at midnight GMT and winners will be announced on Friday 8th January.

Just make sure you agree with the Terms & Conditions prior to entering!

Playfish goes all in with Poker Rivals!

December 7, 2009

We’re excited to announce that we’ve just launched our brand new poker game Poker Rivals!

Poker is an enormously popular game worldwide, so we thought it was high time we gave it the Playfish treatment. We’ve put a lot of time and thought into getting the poker experience just right and we hope it shows. Texas Hold ’em is by far the most popular poker variant so we’ve started out with a fully featured version of Texas Hold ’em just how you like it, but we’ve added a few extras to help you get the most out of your experience.


Poker Rivals is authentic poker. Show how you feel with gestures, communicate with speech options and just socialise and have fun meeting new people and old friends alike. Show your style through your character and show your skills on the poker table. Poker Rivals is the cutting edge in poker and there’s no better way to show your friends what you’re made of.

We’re particularly proud of the character customization features. We know self expression is important to you, so the way your character dresses, looks, and lives in Poker Rivals can be modified and customized until it’s just right. Wear shades for that perfect poker face, buy a new pad to play in or even a yacht — although you’ll have to be a real hotshot on the tables to earn that kind of money.

Everything’s tweaked and perfected to give you an authentic social poker experience, but the best way to see what Poker Rivals has to offer is by playing. So why not go all in right now and give it a shot? Click here to join the poker revolution. And if you like what you see be sure to stay tuned, because we’ll be adding more features in the coming weeks. This is just a taster of what’s to come!
