TiPb Birthday Bash: Win Rolando, Topple 2, WordFu + Jabra BT530 Bluetooth Headset

Entering this contest counts as an entry in TiPb's Birthday Bash grand-prize draw for an Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G!

Woohoo! The week is done, Saturday's here and it's time for... another Birthday Bash contest? Oh, yeah, and also fun!

This time the fabulous folks at ngmoco have given us not one, not two, but three (3!) of their astounding games to gift on to three (3) of you:

  • Topple 2: Enjoy the classic Topple experience, but master the new modes as well. Upside-down mode inverts gravity for a topsy-turvy play experience. Balance mode lets you weigh two towers against each other. Power Tower mode challenges you to build a power line using conductive blocks. Rescue mode uses your tower building skills to save the precious golden egg.

  • WordFu: Shake your letter dice and spell as many words as you can before the clock runs out. Build up your score by unleashing an endless word barrage! Freeze time, flick dice for better letters, and let loose a fiery spelling fury! Once you’ve mastered it on your own, take on your friends over WiFi. Dominate the leaderboard on your quest to earn WordFu Belts and become a true WordFu Grand Master. Once no worldly man can defeat you, play Shaolin Style for the highest WordFu challenge!

  • Rolando: Rolandoland has been invaded and the Rolandos need your help! Use innovative tilt, tap and Multi-Touch controls to solve physics puzzles, toy with interactive environments, and evade pesky enemies as you lead the Rolandos to victory.

But wait, there's one more thing!

Jeff sent this in and none of us have ever seen it before (then again, it's still cold in Montreal so I'd have to throw my iPhone in an oven to even try and test it):

Don't sit next to a pool in Scottsdale Arizona when it's 104 degrees or your iphone will melt away! So how to fix it fast? I put the iPhone between 2 cold beers and it worked!

Anyone else ever see this before?
