Who's got the skills and knowledge to survive a zombie breakout? We asked what are the first five websites you would use Opera Mini to save so that you can bring them up instantly in the event of a zombie takeover? And we got some serious hard beating answers. No doubt about that.
We thought long and hard who had the tactic to survive and get out of the island. Here are our picks. Congrats to the winners below. We hope you will enjoy the game!
Furie had a strategy figured out how to prepare for a Zombie Apocalypse before we launched this contest. He just had to put it together in five sites. How can he not deserve a copy of Dead Island and put his money where his mouth is? Congratulations Furie. Enjoy the game!
Pneumatig provided us with a rock solid plan. Firstly, learn how to hotwire a car. Secondly, get to a drug store. Thirdly, get more drugs. Fourth, get up to speed on wilderness signaling techniques and finally learn how to charm and rescue babes in distress. Brilliant.
Louie keeps it short, but tight. And funny. His five sites, along with his description of them, makes it a winning entry. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.

Picture this: You're on your dream vacation, spending time on a lovely tropical island with friends. Naturally you are also using Opera Mini - this island being in the middle of nowhere, the connection speeds are super slow - so you can still post the kinds of status updates and photos that will make your friends back home jealous, and of course check the weather and find the best nighttime parties on the beach.
But then, a few days into your chilled out holiday, some strange things start happening. First thing on Saturday morning, your normally reliable scuba instructor never shows. Then, that night, the normally packed bar at the bottom of the hill only has six people in it, yet on the walk back to your room there are people all over the place who seem to be either drunk or passed out. There are no cars on the road either. Finally, the next morning you are awoken by a burst of gunfire, which is followed by an eerie silence. As you crawl out to the balcony, you see a few plumes of smoke in the distance. As you look down, you are confronted by the burning wreckage of crashed cars and people running, running after other people.
Now you've seen enough to be sure that zombies have crashed your vacation. For many this would be a nightmare - but not for you. You've been waiting for this day since you were old enough to swing an axe.
First things first. If there's chaos and fires it's only a matter of time before the power goes out and that means no Internet. Your grab your mobile phone and open Opera Mini to use its Save Page feature for when things go from bad to worse.
What we want to know is: What are the first five websites you would use Opera Mini to save so that you can bring them up instantly in the event of a zombie takeover? Post your answer as a comment or write a blog post and share the link. A jury of Opera Zombies will evaluate the entries and announce the winners this coming Friday (September 9th) at 12:00 UTC/GMT.
Think health. Think protection. Think survival. Think fast! The three Opera Mini users with the best collection of saved sites will win the most appropriate souvenir: A copy of Dead Island!
