Celebrity Gamer Girl Highlight: Felicia Day

From time to time we want to highlight famous Gamer Girls just to tell you a little bit about them, and maybe let you check out what they are doing with their love of gaming!  We are going to start with Felicia Day - mostly because my friend from The Canadian Homeschooler is the one that thought of this brilliant plan...and this was the first (and only) name she could come up with at that time! LOL



Felicia is a geeky girl who loves her gaming, so let's take a closer look at that side of her first.

Felicia has done voices of characters in several video games:
Rock of the Dead, Fallout: New Vegas, Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin, Guild Wars 2, and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff.

She also started the creator, writer, and star of The Guild.  This was a web series that she had from 2007 through to 2013.  It started primarily on YouTube, but then went on to also be on: Xbox Live, MSN Video and The Zune Marketplace.

She then created a song with music video called "(Do You Wanna Date My) Avatar", and followed up with several other fun gaming related songs and videos.

She also is a recurring guest Wil Wheaton's Tabletop show, as well as is one of the executive producer for the series.

In August 2014, it was announced that Geek and Sundry was to be acquired by Legendary and become part of Chris Hardwick's Nerdist Industries. [16] with Day retaining creative control.


Outside of gaming....yes there is a world out there somewhere lol....she is an actress, director, comedian, and writer.   She has had parts on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, and Eureka.  She was in movies such as Bring it On Again, and June.

Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Origins Preview {Game Review}

I had the pleasure of attending Origins Game Fair for the first time this year, and I played a ton of board games. My husband and I pretty much played board games all day long for the four days we were there. Of all of the new games I had the chance to try my favourite was Castles of Mad King Ludwig.

Castles of Mad King Ludwig was designed by Ted Alspach. He's the fellow behind one of my other current board game favourites, Suburbia. Castles of Mad King Ludwig hasn't actually been released yet, it's due out in October (2014). So what follow is my views after having had the chance to play a preview copy of the game through from beginning to end, once. I didn't read the instructions, instead the game was taught to us by one of the people working the Bezier Games booth, a pleasant young woman who I believe was the designer's daughter.


The goal of the game is to make the best castle. Each player starts off with an entrance hall and then build off of it by using a wide variety of room tiles, which come in a wide variety of shapes.

App of The Week: Evolution: Battle for Utopia

http://grtdl.com/click/92341/6480/276863/28/?site=IAndshegames&s1=92341&p[clickid]=6480


Evolution: Battle for Utopia is a free-to-play base building action game created by My.com. And while you might be given a gun-toting robot dog companion right from the start, ol’ FIDO won’t cut it forever.

My.com has created an action, RPG and Strategy game all rolled into one fun game.  You get to be the captain of an expedition to a distant planet. 

The game itself is available on several different platforms, so you can get all your friends playing!  And it is in real time, it is an action game but you don't have to be really fast with your reaction time to still master this game and have a lot of fun!

You will be on a new planet where you will have allies and a dog to be on your team! You will need to build a base and protect it, change the planet into a more suitable habitat for your needs, and upgrade your character to make him/her the best you can be for domination of course!

Terraform the planet! Unique extraterrestrial civilization technology is now in your hands! Turn lifeless land into green oases with its unique flora and fauna!

While this is a free-to-play app, there is a lot of in app purchase opportunities.  If you have time you can keep playing and upgrade slowly, but sometimes that can be painfully slow.  There is the in app purchases.  If you are letting someone else (like a teen play) you will want to be aware that they can make in app purchases and it can get quite costly.

Math with Monopoly and @tlsofmommyhood

Tales of Mommyhood was playing monopoly with her 7 yr old and improving his math skills while playing!



Mr. J was introduced to Monopoly a few months ago, and he absolutely loves the game.  After playing it a few times, he wanted to be the banker.  I was a little hesitant since he was 6yrs old and just starting on addition/subtraction. I soon realized that the worst thing to happen would be he would need to ask for help, and hoped that it would help with his math skills.
