The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed

I am a fan of matching games, and always like playing different ones.  So I wanted to share with you some information about a new one coming out.

Have you seen the previews for the new movie called The Secret Life of Pets? Well it's a new movie all about what pets do when we aren't home or around to see!  Of course, paired with that is a new app, and it allows game players to join the film’s characters, Max and his crew of charmingly mischievous companions, for an adventure in the Big Apple.

As you play, you will unlock new friends and colorful challenges in The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed™.  This game is brought to you by Electronic Arts, Illumination Entertainment, and NBCUniversal Brand Development.  It's going to be a free app!

In The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed players can expect to:

Tackle Challenging Puzzles
Match their way through New York with the charming guide Max revealing new puzzles, pets and moments along the way. Players will get to chase away pesky squirrels with Mel or dig up super-sized bones for Duke.

Embark on Pet Adventures
As players progress through the game and make their way to the top of the leaderboards, they’ll meet new pets including Chloe, who can't be bothered unless there is food, Leonard, the posh punk poodle and Snowball, the insanely cute and also insane rabbit.

Reveal and Relish Pet Moments
Make the perfect match and unlock secret pet moments including releasing a flock of helpful (and beautiful) parakeets or triggering an exciting tile-exploding rainbow ball.

You can go get it now in the Google Play or App Store.

Gamer Spotlight Lattes and Llamas

At And She Games we realize we bring something unique to the gaming blogs space, and we embrace that. One the things that we did was a round up of knitting patterns for all the gaming and geeky things that we enjoy!  Along the way we have found crochet patterns, and that people really like these round ups!

We have also discovered, along the way, some really awesomely geeky fiber artists, who have created some of these patterns!

Two of these awesome blogging geeky artist gals is Lattes And Llamas!  These lovely ladies have created a shop where you can buy some of their patterns, and also a fun blog, and website full of all thinks knitty and nerdy! And we love them!  Here is an excerpt from their About Me section, be sure to read it all on their site though they are hilarious:

Once upon a time, all the way back in 2000 and late, Megan-Anne and Jac lived in a world of knitted scarves and crocheted granny square blankets made of acrylic yarn. It was a sad and scratchy time full of snapped plastic hooks and needles. Regardless of the minuscule wool percentage in their yarn, they delved into design.

When they moved from Indiana to Pennsylvania in 2009 and stepped foot inside their first local yarn store, Megan-Anne and Jac were exposed to a whole new world of softer and more colorful fibers. They opened Knerdy Knits, an Etsy store that sold one-of-a-kind geeky knitted and crocheted items. However, as Megan-Anne finished her postbac in late 2013, they decided to take things in a different direction and formed Lattes & Llamas. They began selling their nerdy and classic literature inspired patterns to other knitters/crocheters and founded/designed the Geek-A-Long.

Born from a highly under-caffeinated trip to Starbucks and what could be described as a lost bet, the Geek-A-Long exploded from a grassroots projects to raise awareness for Child’s Play Charity to a worldwide knitting sensation. With participants on every continent and a lively Ravelry group, the Geek-A-Long grows every day and appeals to both experienced knitters and bright-eyed newbies ready to buy their first pair of needles. Through videos and picture tutorials, Megan-Anne and Jac enjoy taking fiber-virgins from making their first slip knot to doing advanced techniques such as double-sided knitting or turning a heel.

Our favourite part is their Geek-A-Longs!  Imagine getting a new square to knit all the time, and by the end you have an amazing afghan with all your geeky love on it!! Amazing!

So who is your favourite geeky blogger we need to know about?
