Thanksgiving Entertainment: Fun Games to Play While Digesting that Turkey

Thanksgiving Games

As an adult, Thanksgiving has become one of my favorite holidays. It’s relatively low-stress for me. Since I don’t know how to cook well, no one expects me to make anything! I buy the rolls and set the table. Easy job. You know what I really love about Thanksgiving? It’s one of the few times of the year that I have enough people around to play grownup games! Trivial Pursuit isn’t all that fun when you’re playing against yourself, after all. Here are a few of my favorite (or on my wish list) adult group games to play while you’re […] Read more »

Live the Farm Life Like Never Before with Farming Simulator 15 + Giveaway

Live the Farm Life Like Never Before with Farming Simulator 15

I’ve been a huge fan of simulation games since back in the day when a 1.5 GB computer was considered spectacular. I’ve built cities and empires, zoos and aquariums. I’ve created more virtual people than I can count and slaughtered enough of them that, if they were real, I would have  ended up on the FBIs Most Wanted list. What can I say? I needed a graveyard for my haunted town! One thing I have never yet been, though, is a farmer. With Farming Simulator 15, now I can add that to my bucket list of virtual experiences. Note: I received a […] Read more »

Get to Know the Characters of All Hail King Julien!

All Hail King Julien

Remember that cool lemur, King Julien, from the Madagascar series? Well, he thought it was a bit unfair that the Penguins got all the airplay with movies and TV series.

I’ll tell you a bit more about that in a minute, but first, let’s get to know the characters of All Hail […] Read more »

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Summit Entertainment. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Are you as incredibly excited about the March 20th premier of The Divergent Series: Insurgent as I am?
