Badge Drop #8: REVIEWING Our TIME

Fri, 07/30/2021 - 12:00pm by ohheyitselle

Wow. It’s ALREADY the end of JUNE!!!

Huh? What’s that now?

 ...It’s the end of JULY?!?!? That’s IMPOSSUMBLE! 

Whelp. While we have apparently been COASTIN’ in the SG TRENCHES, TIME is flapping its WINGS and FLYIN’ by!!! That’s okay, though. We’re still HOLDING it together. For the record, we’re not mad, but maybe a little SALTY about it.

The end of July means there are ONLY 2 WEEKS LEFT TO MAKE HOME CODES! So get on that!! TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!! 

The GOOD NEWS is: Regardless of how fast this summer is moving along, we still have a whole month left of FANTASTIC badges like THESE!!!

Badge Drop #5: WELCOME TO THE GALAXY

Fri, 07/09/2021 - 12:00pm by SaraP

WELCOME BACK, Gamers! It’s a new Friday, with new BAOBADGES, and some TRULY good news. AADL is welcoming you back to the buildings on Monday!!! But, you probably already knew that. Of course, we’ve made it so that you can continue to play the ENTIRE game without setting a single foot in here (if you want) - you know, to PLACE YOURSELF as you re-enter the social GALAXY. 

But if you want to, you can TREK back in on Monday to any or all of the FIVE branches. You can do it FAST! You can do it slowly!! Whatever the CASU may be, we’ll be so glad to see you when we do! In the meantime, you can BET on these badges to keep you occupied...

Badge Drop #4: LOG DAYS OF SUMMER

Fri, 07/02/2021 - 12:00pm by SaraP

Can’t see the FOREST for the trees? You’ve been on quite a WALK through the WILDs of the catalog. All we can say, dear gamers, is boy have you LOGGED some miles (and reads/shows/listens)!! You know what this means???!!!! It’s time for some LOG JAMMER trophies!!!! 

While you’re out there, grab your badge-hunting gear and climb some PEAKS, explore a GROTTO, and maybe see a FOX or even its TALE! But first, a few safety rules for the journey: 

  • wear bright COLORs at all times (or dull ones)
  • avoid FALLing DOWN (without knee pads)
  • bring breadcrumbs into any and all LABYRINTHS
  • keep a CROSSWORD to stay sharp
  • but don’t keep SECRETS from your friends

No need to worry about the WEBS (of silk, lies, flies, or otherwise). Those are 100% SAFE and FINE! I mean, WHAT COULD GO WRONG in a forest full of webs??? Alright, Bilbo, here ya go...
