Mario Kart
A staple game to play in our family is Mario Kart. This is one that the whole family can get involved with. It is one of our favourite console games to play. With you being able to race against each other on a large variety of tracks.

Another popular game in our household is Monopoly. This board game is a classic to play amongst families across the nation. With you being able to compete with each other on owning the board and being the last player standing. This game can last a while and will not be suitable for younger players due to difficult rules and small pieces.

With summer fast approaching, sports are a great game to play as families for getting out into the sunshine. Some of our favourite sports to play include football or running races. If you have younger children it can be fun to do egg and spoon races or obstacle courses.

Quiz Nights
Another game you can take part in as a family is quiz nights. One option is hosting your very own quiz night, where you create your own questions and compete for a prize. Another option is finding an online quiz, which can be found in console game form or live quizzes. These will bring out the competitiveness in every family.

All of these are great options for a family game night. Let us know if you have any other games that you enjoy for family game nights.

Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training – Does It Work?

Posted on May 7, 2021 at 8:30 am

Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training is a game that has been released by Nintendo that is said to improve your brain, improving your memory and how your brain works.

Unfortunately, even though this game is incredibly fun, there is little to no evidence to show that playing this game really does anything to help your brain. While you may see your brain age score go from 70+ to around the 20 age mark, there is nothing to support this. The game is simply finding these results by how you play, which is near impossible. The game does not take into account that some people may struggle with some aspects. For example, if you are dyslexic, you may struggle with maths or reading. The game should take into account your own progress, which it does not. You are simply playing the games for your own pleasure. While completing the game daily, may help with some aspects, it simply doesn’t improve your brain. The only thing it may improve is how quick you can complete simple addition sums and match letter of the alphabet to the corresponding number.

A Guide To Among Us: Hints and Tips

Posted on April 12, 2021 at 8:21 am

To end our blog series surrounding the popular online game Among Us, we are going to be focusing upon hints and tips. We are all guilty of it, whenever we play a game, we want to win. This is why we are going to share our hints and tips to help you win every time in the game Among Us.

Winning As A Crewmate:
It is more common in the game of Among Us for you to become a Crewmate over Imposter. So to begin with, we are going to share with you our tips for winning as a crewmate.

If you want to win as a crewmate we recommend that you spend time viewing the security cameras. This allows you to watch what is going on without others realising. Meaning you may catch an imposter in action.

You should always try to stick with someone when completing your tasks. You should find someone who you can see is not the imposter and stick with them. The imposter is unlikely to kill if there is more than one person as they will be caught.

Winning As The Imposter
Now, the role we all want is to be the imposter, but how can you ensure you win when playing as the imposter?

To be a successful imposter you need to know where the tasks are normally situated. This way you can fake task, meaning people will not be suspicious of you as they will believe you are helping.

You should also consider venting. This allows you to move around the map faster than others walking. But you need to be careful not to be caught going in or out of the vents.

Finally, the main role of the imposter is killing. You need to make sure that you are killing other players when they are alone. If there are two imposters in the game you can complete a double kill on two people at the same time.

A Guide To Among Us – Imposter

Posted on February 12, 2021 at 3:55 pm

Over the past couple of months, we have been looking deeply into a worldwide popular game known as Among Us. So now it is about time that we take a deeper look into the role of the Imposter, sharing with you a guide on how to be the best imposter you can be!

To begin, the role of the Imposter is to kill as many crewmates as they can without being caught out. To win the game you must kill enough crewmates before they complete all of their tasks or discover who the imposter is!

Being A Great Imposter
The time has come, where we share our secrets on how to become a great imposter. This is the role everyone wants, and when you get it you need to be the best you can be. Follow our tips to watch yourself win every game!

1- Fake Tasks
The best way to be an effective imposter is by faking that you are doing tasks. This is easier said than done if you are new to the game. Essentially you just need to hang around the area where tasks are normally placed, so other players assume you are completing them.

2- Venting
Venting is an excellent way for the imposter to move around the map quickly and effectively. This is good for if you have just killed another player, or if you want to sneak up on a player. You must remember the vents will move when you are in them so people may become suspicious.

3- Moving The Blame
If people begin to suspect that you are the imposter, you need to create your own story that is believable allowing you to shift the blame onto another player. If you are a great storyteller this will work in your favour, if others believe you over the player being truthful.
