BLOCKDOT RELEASES“TAGR” FOR MICROSOFT OFFICE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 14, 2010 (Dallas, TX)– Dallas-based Blockdot has released“TAGR” for Microsoft Office, an entertaining game that challenges players to think up words describing each image they see.

In the game, you have 3 minutes to scroll through as many– or as few– images as you can. Type in the words you think of as you see each image. You’ll score points based on how many other players have used your word; the more times the word has been used, the more points you earn! After the game, registered players can post their scores to daily, weekly, monthly, and“all time best” scoreboards.

Players don’t have to limit themselves to just nouns and verbs and adjectives to describe an image in TAGR; they can use more abstract and creative associations, like peace and generosity and sincerity.

Besides the fun game-play, Microsoft Office hopes to use players’ input to make images more relevant and easier to find as Microsoft’s keyword libraries and associations increase.
