StumbleUpon Cruises into the UK with ‘The Stumble Games’ in July

StumbleUpon has always been the closest thing on the web to channel surfing. By pressing their “stumble” button, you get a random, interesting web page as voted on by their various users. You can customize the category and flip past any sites that don’t look interesting, not unlike clicking through with a TV remote. The service just launched in the UK and is celebrating by launching the “Stumble Games”.

The Stumble Games are an easy way for new UK StumbleUpon members to win prizes which include a lot of cool gifts including a £1000 Amazon gift certificate. To register, there are various different ‘games’ which you must participate in. We’ve listed them below, and you can read more about the games here.
