On Thursday evening, I was invited to participate in the world’s largest group Words With Friends game –and I had a total blast!
The gorgeous, talented Jordin Sparks kicked off the night with a special shout out to Crystal Light (as a singer, she depends on it to quench her thirst and add a dose of delicious flavor to her water). Hors d’oeuvres were passed around as attendees sipped on Crystal Light Liquid’s six tasty flavors. While the strawberry lemonade was perfect for a springy night, I kept myself close to the iced tea table. I gulped my first three cups convinced that there was no way this could be zero (that’s right…zero) calories as it tasted exactly like the sugary, calorie-packed iced tea I begged for as a child. Plus, there was no powdery residue left on the bottom of my cup. Score!
Soon enough, we were on to the actual game. Crystal Light Liquid teamed up with Zynga, the world’s leading provider of social game services to host a Words With Friends game open to players across the country. It brought together the most players EVER on one game board. How awesome is that? My guest and I scrambled to create the highest-valued words, which appeared on a giant screen next to the Maritime Hotel. Sadly, we didn’t get to see our words on the big screen (it’s not easy when you’re competing with so many people), but we still had tons of fun. Prizes and goodie bags were given, marking the perfect end to an already winning night.
And if you weren’t able to participate, U.S. residents will have a shot at winning Crystal-Light-Liquid-flavor themed trips for two every day through May 14th, 2013. Dream vacation packages include a guided horseback tour & stay at The Cloister Sea Island Resort off the coast of Southern Georgia, a chic weekend stay with a personal concierge at the boutique SoBe hotel in St. Augustine, Miami, and a private whale watch charter cruise at Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara. Swoon!
