Play a casual game for the chance to win some swank hardware? Count us in. Here's the deal -- MSI is giving away several goodies over the next three months, including a dozen testing platforms, several Z68A-GD80 and Z68-GD65 motherboards, and 15 Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light game coupons. All you have to do is trade some Farmville and/or Mafia Wars time and instead try to become the highest ranked Commander in MSI's "Military TD-Mission Z68" tower defense game.


You also have to join MSI's fan club. Once you've done that, and after you play the game, provide your contact information to be entered in various MSI prize drawings. Bear in mind that your combat results will be automatically shared on your Facebook wall, which MSI spins as a way "to showcase your brilliant tactical strategies and challenge your friends."

As with any contest, there are several terms and conditions to note, all of which you can check out here. Good luck to those of you who enter!

This would be awesome but... even with all the amazing members on hothardware, I don't think any of us have a chance at beating the asians farming the game -.-

"As I read your reply, I decided to take another crack at it, managed 53560."

"But unfortunately  even that cant be considered good, look at all the high scores, its impossible, the Asians took over."

Hey, i've tried and tried, i was on the top 16, but got knocked off the next day. I used a maze like blocking system for the land vehicles like this screenshot, only i prefered using the VIRTU guns, since that was the best for the value of money, and G3 occasionally, also i lined up all the  Air attackers in a hmm.. 50 degree angle, ?.. since the aircrafts come only through one direction. i Did not waste any money on the land guns, since i used the Guns which fired both land & air. I hope this helps you. This was my strategy.. :) Oh Fudge, i didn't save a screenshot ..

once you get pasted 100k, you can just start spaming the oc button that kills everything and you will never lose. Although when i get around 250k the game stops working and no more guys spawn.
