Originally posted 2015-11-08 08:22:14. Like last year, the climax of Blizzcon’s Hearthstone World Championship was a rather quick no-nonsense affair with Swedish Ostkaka triumphing over Canadian Hotform in three games. The first game was a fascinating contest between two types of Mage – Hotform’s Tempo Mage (which I play) and Ostkaka’s Freeze Mage (which I now want…

Originally posted 2015-10-21 12:00:39. I originally played Destiny when it first came out over a year ago. This game was supposed to be the game of games. It was so over hyped and I couldn’t get enough of it. At long last it was finally launch day and I played it non-stop when my fiancé,…

Hey everyone! I’ve got one of my favourite games to tell you about today: Gardenscapes! I played the original “Mansion Makeover” on my laptop years ago (it was put out in 2009, and I’m staring at that and thinking, damn, that’s nearly a decade ago now. HOW CAN THAT BE ALMOST A DECADE AGO!?!) Gardenscapes…

I LOVED Oregon Trail when I was in college the first time. I played it so much, I used to have dreams about needing to fix wagon wheels. We were allowed to play it in the Mac Room (that’s legit what Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada called the computer lab back in…

I may have mentioned that my recent gaming has consisted pretty much of 1 game. It has provided entertainment for months now. There are quests, side quests and treasure hunts. There are monsters, wizards, sorceresses, witches and 3 nasty old hags who live in a hut and devour children. There’s blood and dismemberment. This is…

Oregon Trail Card Game

The Oregon Trail Revisited When I was in elementary school, computers were still fairly new. (The Apple II and Apple IIe were wonders of the time!)
