To this point, Facebook gaming has largely drawn sim gaming enthusiasts, women and teens. Wedge Buster is looking to provide viable options on Facebook for male sports fans, for once.
Launched earlier this year, Wedge Buster features over 50 sports-related Flash games and fantasy games all on one app. The choices include everything from darts to soccer, while the fantasy games have a true Las Vegas sports book feel, allowing players to wager on real-life game outcomes such as the NCAA Tournament.
Players can invite their Facebook friends to compete in head-to-head matchups or play in tournaments against other Wedge Buster players, wagering Wedge Buster Chips. If you're not ready to play for stakes at the beginning, a practice mode is also offered with each game. There are also games that only allow practice modes. Even fans of puzzles can have fun with digital jigsaws of sports venues and other "revealing" eye candy.
New players at Wedge Buster start off with an ample amount of chips to get in the game, but additional currency can be earned via Facebook credit transactions and game wagers. Wedge Buster has also been giving away great daily and weekly prizes to its players such as Best Buy Gift Cards and "Beats by Dr. Dre" headphones.
Wedge Buster has games that appeal to every age group, but be forewarned that the games can quickly become addictive. A Facebook account is all you need to start playing now at apps.facebook.com/wedgebuster.
