DUDE!!!!! The Daytona 500 is this weekend, and I am so excited. Also.... PSA do not try to contact me on Sunday afternoon - I am busy knitting and shouting at my TV!

 Ok so you probably knew I loved NASCAR, if not....Welcome! You are new around here!
With the 59th running of the Daytona 500, Real Racing 3 returns to Daytona International Speedway! This is a racing game for your tablet or mobile device and can be hooked up to your apple watch of apple tv, and the latest update will appeal to fans of the Daytona 500.

 During the big event, you can play in-game events to earn the 2017 Ford Fusion race car to use in the game. Real Racing 3 has also partnered in-game with renowned NASCAR driver, Danica Patrick, and players will get to experience an intimate look at the road to Daytona. So if you are a fan of NASCAR or just the Daytona 500 you will want to grab this game or update. The 2017 Chevrolet SS race car will be earnable in-game during the Maplethorpe Jimmie Johnson Championship limited-time series starting March 26 (AEDT).

 Not a fan of NASCAR or the Daytona 500 (I'm sorry you are lost and ended up here :P ), the fun will appeal to you since after the 500 players can speed their way across the finish line to earn the 1995 McLaren F1 GTR in the Flag Racing F1 GTR Championship on March 5. Play through the Lamborghini Legacy special event starting March 12 to earn the exclusive 2016 Lamborghini Centenario, the supercar built to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday.

 So if you are racing fan, or racing game fan this will appeal to you for sure!

Seagate Duet Hard Drive Giveaway

So I currently have a great addition to any gamers stash of gaming accessories! And I thought I would share it here:


When you are married to a long time computer nerd, and are a review blogger, you get excited about reviewing things like hard drives.  Also you learn that you can never have too many external hard drives.

This time hubby was able to check out the Seagate Duet Hard Drive.  It's a cloud-syncing Portable Hard Drive for Amazon Drive.  Seagate and Amazon Drive have partnered together to offer a hard drive, and cloud storage for back up in one simple to use device.

Of course when my hubby saw the box for the Seagate Duet, he snatched it up.  I know very little about these things so I told him he could keep it if he was willing to review it for me.

Show Your Gamer Love with These FREE MEEPLE VALENTINES

Ok guys, I've got something a little oddball to share with you today; meeple Valentine's for board gamers!

It's hard to find the perfect Valentine for a board gamer (aside from, you know, new games.. can never go wrong there, right?) Last year I was searching around the internet, looking for some board game themed Valentine's Day cards to share with my kids and I discovered that there wasn't much out there. So I decided to make my own cheesy meeple Valentines. With the aid of my pint sized assistants, I took a bunch of photos of different set ups my girls created using meeple, animeeple and other various board game components.I cleaned up the photos. I added cheesy Valentine's Day wording, and voila, meeple Valentine's!

So here it is, a dozen ways to say "I love you" to the gamer geek in your life. Feel free to print these, or use them to send eCards (but only for your personal non-commercial use, please).

Sid Meier's Civilization The Board Game

I am a huge fan of the Sid Meier's Civilization series and have been playing it for over 15 years.  I actually have been a little behind on my blogging lately as I have been sucked in to the game....and I am trying to ignore that they have an updated version in the App Store....

If my hubby was into board games I would totally get this Sid Meier's Civilization The Board Game


My boys are too young to play yet, but soon enough! They love playing board games, and card games with me.






The idea behind the board game is the same as the computer game, you need to build an empire to stand the test of time, and beat the other civilizations!  You control of an entire civilization, and ensure their survival or defeat.

You chose one famous leader that you will play which determines certain things about your civilization and their abilities.  Just like the video game, you have 4 paths to victory, but this comes with a module game board.

Strategy, research and acquiring assets are still your  best bets for success! This is a 2-4 player game.
