It's All Fun and Games Blogfest


For the It’s All Fun & Games Blogfest, list your three most favorite games and why. Board games, card games, RPG, video games, physical games, - even mind games! If it’s a game you enjoy playing, it’s worth sharing.

You can leave your answers in the comments of this post if you don't have a blog. Here are (a few) of my favorites:

World of Goo. It's the quirkiest video game you could ever hope to play (on the Wii). You build structures with goo balls to accomplish goals, and the goo balls are happy when you win. It's a challenging puzzle game.

Cranium. Not only is it a fun board game, but it makes me feel smarter! You have to use all kinds of skills, like drawing, sculpting, trivia, etc.

Boggle. You would think as a writer, I would be good at word games like Boggle and Scrabble. You would also think that if I wasn't good at a game, I wouldn't love it. I guess I'm a conundrum, because I'm a horrible yet avid Boggler.

  2. Haven't heard of World of Goo. But I've got one son who's the master of both Cranium and Boggle. Unfortunately he and his wife live in China now, so we don't get to play it anymore. *sigh*

  3. Ah, a blogger AND a Boggler all in one. ;) World of Goo sounds totally fun---I do not Wii, but I think my kids might get a huge kick out of it. Thanks for the tip.

  6. I love boggle! I don't get to play it too often because i always (for real, always) win. It helps that i had boggle on my phone for a long time and got real good at finding little words

  12. I'm a lousy, avid boggler too. I don't think I've ever won, yet it's one of my three picks too.
    Cheers.

  16. Sorry I missed this one! It looks like fun. Our family really likes "Blokus" and also "Settlers of Catan" both are old-fashioned boardgames. Also, I'm a bit addicted to "Scramble" (the boggle-esque game on Facebook)

  21. Boggle is the only one I know. World of goo sounds uh amazing!

  22. World of Goo is an amazing game. If I'm not mistaken, it started as a student project.

    I like Boggle as well.

    I don't know Cranium, but I've seen it pop up in this challenge so many times that it might be worth looking into! :-)

  23. I love the game Things, a perfect game for writers. My family also plays a game we made up where each person starts a story, then after a few minutes we fold it up and randomly give it to someone else. We do this three times. We've come up with some great and crazy stories!

  24. K.C.: Yay, someone who has played World of Goo! I was starting the think no one had heard of it except me. BTW, thank you so much for posting about my favorite book blogfest on your blog!

    Rachel: I've never heard of the game "Things." I'll have to look into it. I love pass around stories. My mom and I used to play it when I was a kid, and I still remember a cute story we came up with about a magical porcupine.

  26. I got the demo for "World of Goo" on the Wii and love it. I haven't gotten the full version though. Maybe I'll do that when I buy some more points.
