ESPNU College Town: ESPN Arcade Skeeball brings Carniball to school

While arcades can only be found in random malls and shore towns since their downfall in the 90s, Playdom and ESPN are trying their damnedest to keep the arcade spirit alive. Well, at least on Facebook with the new ESPN Arcade Skeeball item in ESPNU College Town. The second in a series of three ESPN Arcade items, this Skeeball game is absolutely free and can be obtained through the news section your game by clicking the button below the news story.

From there, you'll be taken to a new page, asking you to click a link to redeem your brand spankin' new arcade game. Do this and you'll be launched back into ESPNU College Town with a confirmation message. Just click "Continue" and you can find the item in your gift inventory, ready to join QB Assault in an arcade pool party.

But don't think that's all there is to this item. Like QB Assault, clicking on the Skeeball item gives players the option of playing Carniball on ESPN Arcade. Another game of precision, Carniball tasks players with "throwing" the wooden balls by clicking to grab the ball and releasing at just the right time and speed to ensure points. Now, you have ESPN Arcade to thank for not one, but two ways to kill time while waiting around to collect from those properties and maintain those venues.

What do you think of the next ESPN Arcade game to make it into ESPNU College Town? What do you think will be the third in the series? Let us know in the comments. Add Comment.
