It was surprisingly hard to get some of the domains. The first one I had didn't even work when I used the site address.
Easy indeed (guest user). Got 3 out of 3 correct. 340 points. What can I do with it? ;)
Wow, Bing is crazy bad. I got like 1 out of 20 and some were very obvious.
I don't want to come across as a bing cheerleader, but I must say, that's a pretty dang creative idea to get the kind of direct feedback from users that might make for a better product. Will be interested to see if they post a general summation when the test has run it's course, as to whether they feel it gave them enough useful data to push bing another step forward. The better bing gets, the more competition we'll see in a field that needs more competition -- we'll all come out ahead...
Good stuff, thinking out the box.

They are Your points, maybe Bing will have a Monthly RollOver thingy later. Use them when You need them! :)
If you get 10,000 points, they give you a free copy of WindowsMe ;-)

That's a GREAT reason to stop at 9,900 points! :)
Looking for that first "Find Bing points at eBay!" AdSense ad. (That situation itself is just dripping with irony...)
so this is a thinly veiled exercise in social tagging on web sites. If a page is too hard to figure out algorithmically, they can throw it in the game. What if I "play" and "guess" a whole bunch of crappy bingbombing keywords?
yes, I said bingbombing
try playing the game and enter some unusual / rare word combinations. then wait a few days/weeks and search bing for those words, see if the sites you "played" show up for those terms
So what's the next site that MS will come up with for media attention and for our personal enjoyment sharing our selves to them...., "Bingo".
Got to hand it to MS. They sure know how to side step ideas to the top.
I'm now a Mac guy without a MS partition. Does Silverlight run on a Mac without IE?
