Celebrate Canada Day by playing Great Beaver

By Ryan Blundell on 1 Jul 2011 10:30 am EDT

Happy Canada Day fellow Canuckleheads! All over the Great White North, we celebrate everything that is Canadian including; Tim Hortons, Poutine and of course BlackBerry (to name a few). Though found in many areas outside of Canada, the beaver is generally associated with Canada. It is on our nickel, after all. Just in time for Canada Day comes a BlackBerry PlayBook game that cashes in on the magic of the mighty beaver. Aptly named Great Beaver, this Pac-man type of game allows you to pit you beaver against toque toting enemy beavers. Your goal, while avoiding your fellow beaver, is to collect all of the evasive gold coins in each level. Gold coins…could they be the Canadian Loonie perhaps?

The free trial gives you access to two levels. The full version of Great Beaver is available for 3 caribous, 2 bluenoses and 4 maple leaves (that's $0.99 for those not familiar with Canadian currency). This game is only available to residents of Canada. You can pick it up from BlackBerry App World, eh?

Celebrate Canada Day by playing Great Beaver


OK, I admit I don't know all Canadian currency. I do know Maple Leaves are $0.01. So what is a bluenose and how do two of them = $0.95? You really have a coin worth $0.475??

like you said a maple leaf is a penny, a bluenose which is the name of a famous canadian boat is on the 10 cent dime. and a caribou (reindeer)is on the quarter. so 3 caibous = 0.75$ + 2 bluenoses = 0.20$ + 4 maple leaves = 0.04$ = 0.99$

and for the record those are just nicknames ala the benjamins

What the hell!!!!!!!!!! I am new to bb and though my data plan iz up to date y cn't I use social feeds????????????shit man to should I ask for help ???? How my problm cn be solved ???????who will or who cn help me??????:((((((((((((((
