30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 6!

Happy Tuesday Novas! The 30 day blogging challenge is where we post on selected topics each day. I hopped onto this challenge because it’s dedicated to video games! Let’s jump straight into today’s post.

Day 6 – Most annoying character

I know that my answer to today’s question is going to ruffle some of my fellow gamers feathers, but I have to answer truthfully. The most annoying character to me in video games is Pikachu. Yes, Pikachu from Pokemon lol. I’m not quite sure why, but I have never liked Pikachu and I just feel as if he’s an annoying Pokemon. I remember playing Pokemon Green and Red and pretty much purposefully searched in areas for Pikachu just to make them faint (I know I’m a monster lol).

Another annoying character or action for me is playing against myself in a fighting game. I don’t tenor  know what it is, maybe the Twilight Zone’s theory of you being your worst enemy has more truth then we would want to believe. When I’m fighting against the same character that I am playing it’s super annoying. I sike myself out or something. When we were kids, my brother Kenny would put on Dead or Alive 5. I would always pick Kasumi and I would win most of those battles… until Kenny would pick Kasumi as well. I’d get DESTROYEDDDDDD!!!!! It’s as if I didn’t have thumbs or have never played the game. He did the same in Street Fighter when I played as Chun-Li. Siblings really know how to annoy you and exploit your weaknesses lol.

The boss in Sonic Spinball is another annoying character to lay against. It was the Dr. Robotnik Spider thingy. I didn’t have the coordination as a kid to beat that level so I always had to get Kenny to beat it for me. Actually, multiple stages in sonic like the marble zone where you were in the sky or the factory with those creepy blue things. Kenny beat many levels for me as a kid.

 

Let’s hear from my brother!

Me: Kenny What’s the most annoying character to play against?

Kenny: Eddie Gordo from Tekken! He’s unpredictable and I hate his fighting style. He’s uses Capoeira to keep you far away. I don’t know whether I want to punch or kick him because he’s all over the place.

eddy

Me: Ah, I see. Anyone else?

Kenny: Gears of War 4 when you have to take out the multiple guns and then shoot the beast. I had to play that stage over and over again!

Thanks for reading today’s post and have a great afternoon! As you can see I took a little of a different approach when writing it! What video game characters or stages annoyed you the most? Let’s talk games!

30 Day Challenge Gamers Edition: Day 5

Happy Monday Novas! I hope your week is starting off well. We are continuing with the 30 day blogging challenge for Gamers and today’s topic had me scratching my head trying to come up with an answer. After a few hours in deep thought, I’ve finally come up with the answer! Let’s see who I picked!

Day 5 – Game character you feel you are most like (or wish you were)

Today’s topic wants me to answer the question on which video game character I feel I am most like. I’m taking it back to Nintendo; Mario to be exact. Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself and see if anyone can guess the Mario character I picked. I like to say that I am a jokester, always trying to make jokes and keep everyone in a good mood. I like playing pranks on my friends and family. I’m pretty friendly and my most used emoji is the tongue sticking out one :p.  I also daydream and float off into the space of my own mind quite often. Back in middle school I jumped out of my art class everyday in the hopes of scaring my friend Kelly! Which character do I feel I am most like? Drum roll please….

Mariowiki.com

BOO! No, no, no Boo! I feel like I am most like the free spirited, trickster Boo from Mario! Boo has been one of my favorite Mario characters since the Mario Party franchise began. Remember there was a spot on the map in which you could “Hire” Boo to steal coins or stars from the other players. While I do not fancy myself a thief, I did use Boo’s services when I felt the situation was justified. I would make my way to Boo’s shop and ask him to retrieve items (which I always referred to as taking it to Boo) from my brother and friends. Boo also can disappear and reappear. I’d like to think that trait refers to my ability to adapt and blend in with situations (I was really reaching on that one lol).

I’d like to answer the alternate part of the question as well! If I could be character, i’d be Princess Daisy in Mario!Princess Daisy was amazing! She wasn’t as much drama as Peach and she seemed more fun and free spirited. Also, who wouldn’t want to be a princess? i first started using Daisy in Mario Double Dash and Mario golf. When Yoshi wasn’t available, I had to pick an alternate character. Daisy was my pick!

WWE Extreme Rules Results!

Happy Monday Novas! Last night was the RAW exclusive special Extreme Rules. Extreme Rules payperview is just as it sounds in where the traditional matches and rules go out the window for that night. You can see matches that only involve tables, steel cages and more. The event wasn’t bad last night however I feel as though it wasn’t the best either. Let’s take a look at the results.

Intercontinental Championship Match-    dean  The IC Championship match was between Dean Ambrose and The Miz.  The extreme rule stipulation was that if Dean Ambrose was disqualified, the champions advantage wouldn’t work and he would lose his title. Miz came out trying to DQ the champ at every turn, even down to what I predicted in Maryse slapping her husband. Results: New IC Champion the Miz via a distracted Ambrose pinball!

Raw Women’s Championship Kendo Stick on A Pole Match-   alexa   the raw women’s champion Alexa Bliss vs Bayley was ok. I thought the match would be a little better entertainment wise. Bayley was the first to rip down the lindo stick, however, Alexa ended up being the one using it. Results: Alexa Bliss retains her championship.

Mix Tag Team Match- The next match was the ongoing feud between Noam Dar and Alicia Fox versus Rich Swann and Sasha Banks. We all know the fickle character that is Aicia Fox, jumping between men on the cruiserweight division. This match was ok as well. I wasn’t too in to it. Results: Rich Swann and Sasha Banks win in swanns home town. Great ending with them dancing as well!

Raw Tag Team Championship Match- The match was between champions the Hardyz and Sheamus and Cesaro. The stipulation was the steel cage. If you recall the Hardyz are notorious for winning tag team steel cages in their career. This match I can say was pretty good. Results: As predicted, the new Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro by 1 sec.

Cruiserweight Championship Match- The cruiserweight division has had champion Neville feuding in controversy with Austin Aries. From the sneaky moves at Wrestlemania to the deception of TJP, Neville has proved that the heel role is one that suits him. I’m going to be honest, i was so invested in the fatal 5 way and since I started about an hour late, I fast forwarded through this match. Results: Neville retains his title.  neville

Fatal 5 Way- On to the meat of the Extreme Rules event. I was really excited to watch the fatal 5 way main event between my husband Seth Rollins, my husband Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt and … Samoa Joe. This match was really good in my opinion (except for the outcome). I can’t wait to see the fallout tonight on Monday Night Raw. Results: Samoa Joe?????? I’m heated I wanted anyone bu him to win lol. He pretty much laid in a corner while the others fought and then snuck in with the Cocina Clutch. Well played Joe, well played lol.

The Extreme Rules Payperview was a good event, but I feel as though the “Extreme” part wasn’t as good as previous years. Most of my predictions were correct and I loved the Fatal 5 Way match the most. Did you watch the event? Which matches did you enjoy? What do you think will happen on Raw tonight? Why is the next event called Great Balls of Fire??? Let’s Talk WWE Extreme Rules!

30 Day Challege Gamers Edition: Day 4!

Happy Sunday Novas! We’re staying strong with our 30 day blogging challenge. Feel free to join along with us and blog daily with your answers! Check out Day 1 & 2 answers to the questions of “My Very First Video Game” and “My Favorite Video Game Character.” Also look at yesterday’s “Underrated Game” post at the bottom. Now on to today’s topic.

Day 4- Your Guilty Pleasure Game!

This answer actually comes pretty easily to me. Think about it. Which game would you load hours upon hours of time into up until the point that you completing block out reality? Which game makes living a life, going to work and mingling with friends super fun? For me it’s The Sims! No matter which version of the sims I play (currently playing Sims 4 on PC),  when I get rolling on this crazy game, I’m GONEEEEE! I build houses, I create, make and break families, literally the sky’s the limit for me lol.

What makes the Sims franchise so addicting? Personally I believe you are able to live the life you want or life that you wouldn’t want to live. It’s like you are able to control your own destiny! I’m a Taurus, so if you follow  astrological personality traits, you would know that us Taureans love to be in control.  If you’ve never played the Sims then you will look at the game and probably say “Why would I want to pretend to have a life?” That was me, trust me! Once I played the game the appeal of getting promotions or living off of other sims, even the occasional sim going all “Mr. Steal Yo Girl” was so much fun.

How do you play? Playing is as simple as creating your household and selecting a starter house to move in to.  You can spend anywhere from 10 minutes too 30 minutes customizing your household which can consist of 1 character, 2 characters or an entire family! During this process you are also able to give your Sims 4 personality traits (insert mischievous face here :p ). You can make your Sims lovable, mean, funny, or a mix of everything! Take caution that the traits will affect your Sims and the way they react to situations.

Forum The Sims

After creating your Sim and selecting your house you play! You can socialize, find a job to make money and more. Like any game you are able to upgrade your Sims career by completing the tasks required and going to work happy! Let’s say you’re in the athletic field, your tasks may be to increase your fitness level to 3 and go to work happy to receive a promotion. You will also make sure your Sim is well cared for by attending to their needs according to their moodlets.

I love that this game can be different each time you play due to the countless customization options, as well as the DLC available. There;s DLC that allow you to work at more professions, there’s DLC that provides additional items for your character, you can also receive nightclub privileges and more. The Get To Work  DLC allows you to own stores and make more money.

Writing this post is only making me want to play the Sims more! So my co- workers and I have decided to make a YouTube series of our team at work via the Sims. This is going to be amazing and I’ll keep you all updated of course! Anyway, yes The Sims is a guilty pleasure that I thoroughly enjoy. Being able to control your sim is awesome, trust me!

30 Day Challenge Gamers Edition: Day 3!

Happy Saturday Novas! I’m continuing on with the 30 day gamers challenge in which you create a blog post each day for the topic assigned. If you want to follow along, check out my first post here!

Day 3 – A game that is underrated

An underrated game is one that many people are over looking. Our friend thero159 posted their topic today in regards to a game on Steam. Click here to read their post. My pick for an underrated game would be the video game Skyforge. Skyforge was released for free on PS4 in April. My friends and I have been playing it non stop. For my response to today’s post, I want to shine some light on the video game Skyforge on PS4. I’ve been meaning to post a video game review of Skyforge for awhile now so I’d like to present a condensed version of the game now.

Skyforge is an MMORPG game that allows the player to customize their character and complete levels in order to upgrade. You start off with a choice of 1 of 3 classes and find out that you’re not like most people. You’re sort of, well you’re immortal! Now you must develop your powers and help save different worlds. You have the The Cryomancer (Damage), Paladin (Tank) and the Light Binder (Support) roles to start. There are 13 classes in total that you can unlock and you can switch between classes depending on the missions you are completing. With any MMORPG, you are also able to Here’s some game-play that I have recorded for the game. Personally, I love playing with the Cryomancer.

Currently there are about 10 different worlds in which to explore. Each world will have different levels and missions for you to journey through. After unlocking additional missions, you can start upgrading your character’s traits and strength. As you play each level, you gain followers which add to your power in the games. It’s funny, you can find followers in random corners on the levels.   This game is fantastic as there’s so much to experience. You can play different classes, play PVP, try your hand at world events and even team up for Raids. Each level will also contain at least 1 boss to fight. I say “At Least” because there may be levels where you must fight multiple bosses in order to complete the mission. If you are playing with friends, if you all die then the mission restarts.

That’s a quick over view of the Skyforge game. Look for it in your PlayStation Store! I may actually compile a full video game review for this game in the future (after I beat the main story).

Although this post is not a full review of the Skyforge game, I will still provide my top reasons to “Play” or “Skip” this game.

Play:

  • Hours upon hours of entertainment
  • Character customization, stats and abilities
  • Ease of changing and trying out new classes
  • Different game modes to choose from

Skip:

  • Grind heavy (you have to complete many missions to gain enough money to unlock different classes and costumes).
  • Can be repetitive (you will have to play the same levels in order to complete the different missions and contracts).

That’s it for today’s daily challenge post. What are some video games that you feel are underrated? Have you ever played Skyforge? Let’s talk video games!

WWE Extreme Rules Predictions!

Happy Saturday Novas! Time for another WWE PayPerView prediction post and this weekend Monday Night Raw’ s roster is up! Before every network special I will post a prediction on who I think will be the victor. I want to also mention that I’m happy with the progression of Monday Night Raw and consider Raw to be the more entertaining brand at the moment (thank you Superstar Shakeup!).

Extreme rules is a great payperview that introduces non conventional or “extreme” rules into the matches. This is where the wwe universe gets to see crazy action like last year’s Asylum Match. This year will be no different.Let’s get into the matches!

Mixed Tag Team Match Sasha Banks & Rich Swann vs Noam Dar & Alicia Foxxex4   This mixed tag team match has been looming in the background ever since Alicia Foxx’s character started jumping from on screen relationship to on screen relationship. Insert Sasha Banks into the mix and now we have a mixed tag match. I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed with Sasha Banks being involved as it seems like her value has decreased. Predictions: Sasha Banks and Rich Swann wins!

Raw Women’s Championship Alexa Bliss vs Bayley-   ex1  The Womens championship match will be a keno stick on a pole match. Alexa took the women’s title after defeating Bayley in her home town last month. Alexa has been patronizing Bayley saying that she can’t get extreme, leading to the keno stick on a pole match! I feel as though Bliss is trying to corrupt Bayley’s character which can make for an interesting story line (I.E. Neville and TJP’s relationship). Predictions: Bayley wins. Not quite sure why I feel like this, but I’m choosing Bayley!

Intercontinental Championship match Dean Ambrose vs the Miz-   ex5  Still with a feud that I hope ends here we have IC Champion Ambrose in a no champions advantage match with the Miz. The champions advantage States that titles will not change hand if the match is won by DQ. Since the Miz picked the stipulation, Ambrose cannot get disqualified or he will lose the title. Very interesting twist as for Ambrose to be DQ’d the Mix would have to be assaulted…. see the dilemma. If Maryse (Miz wife) pretty much assaults her husband, he would become champion. Prediction: I want for Ambrose to retain but with the stipulation my gut tells me Miz will win.

Raw Tag Team Championship Steel Cage Match-   ex2  The Hardy Boys vs Sheamus and Cesaro will be an epic steel cage match. Sheamus and Cesaro has been feeling disrespected and overlooked by the Hardys as well as the fans since Wrestlemania. The now heel team looks to “delete” the Hardyz in a steel cage match. Predictions: Although this is a match custom made for the Hardyz, I really want Sheamus and Cesaro to win. I’m choosing the Swiss-Celtic warriors! But I can’t wait to see Jeff hit a Swanton in the cage!

Cruiserweight Championship Match-   ex3  3rd times a charm right? Will this rematch, well re rematch between champ and King of the Cruiserweights Neville and challenger Austin Aries finally end in Aries’ favor? Neville has recruited TJP, sunk to new lows and impeded Aries’ triumphant return to the ring. Prediction: The greatest man alive will finally become cruiserweight champion! He should hit up Seth Rollins for a Kingslayer shirt lol.

Fatal 5 way Number 1 contenders match-   ex6  I’m really just waiting for the main event the first fatal 5 way match at Extreme Rules that’s being marketed to shape the face of the new era. I loveeee everyone in this match (except for Joe). We have my husband, kingslayer, champ, architect the man Seth Rollins vs eater of works Bray Wyatt, vs my other husband the demon king Finn Balor vs The big Dawg Roman Reigns… vs wack Samoa Joe lol. Star studded main event. Winner will face the beast Brock Lesner for the Universal title. I want all 4 to win forget Joe lol. Predictions: I have nooo idea. I’m just going with my heart and saying Seth Rollins but it’s really anyone’s match.

These are my predictions for Sundays PayPerView. Do you agree with my predictions? Who do you think will win? Let’s talk WWE!

Day 1 Question: Your 1st Video Game:

My Very First Video Game that I can remember has to be either Tetris, Dr. Mario or Duck Hunt. Tetris is an amazing game of stacking different shaped blocks as they fall on the screen. The goal is to not let your blocks reach the top of your screen (come on you all remember Tetris, Right?). tetris

Dr. Mario was a classic game of matching the colors on the pills to get rid of them. Similar to Tetris, your goal is to not let your falling pills stack up and reach the top of the screen. Now that I think about it, this game was pretty creepy. Dr. Mario is basically an illegal pharmacist mixing medications lol. Dr_mario_screenshot

Duck Hunt was a game for Super Nintendo in which you, well you shoot ducks. It came with this gnarly orange and gray gun that you would point and shoot at the screen. Tons of fun with Duck Hunt.

Day 2 Question: Your Favorite Character.

It’s funny, the Day 2 question I just answered this morning on the Shameful Narcissist’s blog lol. My favorite video game character of all time would have to be Yoshi! Yoshi was the man! He was green, could turn people into eggs and a great maneuver-er on Mario Kart! I would always select Yoshi if he hadn’t been taken and wreak havoc!!!! I remember playing Mario Party 4 on Gamecube with my brother and his friends. I was the champion always winning in Castaways and the basketball mini games.   Yoshi-o Every game I would pick Yoshi, my brother would select Toad, his friend would pick Waluigi and my friend would pick Peach. Great times. Some other characters I love are the Arbitor from Halo (He’s AWESOME!) and Baird or Cole Train from Gears of War!  I guess it would also depend on the game. If we’re playing street fight Chun-Li is bae and in Mortal Kombat Scorpion or Sonya Blade are my go to’s. Well Cinder was pretty awesome as well. The best thing about being a gamer is that you don’t have to choose your favorites! You can play with all of the characters and still have fun.

Thank you for checking out this second post today. What are your 1st games and favorite characters? Let’s talk gaming!

Series Review: The White Queen!

Happy Friday Novas! As mentioned a few posts ago, I was recently sick and found myself binge watching a series on Starz called The White Queen! It’s no secret that I love watching period pieces like Reign, The Tudors, Versailles,  etc. The White Queen falls right in to that time as well.

It’s funny, I actually first came across this story from my friend’s fiance. She has a crazy book collection and let me borrow some books to read. She has a collection of Phillipa Gregory books that are historical fiction.  images   Since its right up my alley, I of course grabbed a few of the books. The White Princess,  The Red Queen and The Kingmaker’s Daughter. The same day I saw a commercial for The White Princess and knew it was my book coming to the screen. Fast forward I’ve watched 3 episodes of the White Princess and had to stop because its currently showing. But Starz recommended The White Queen and voila I’ve completed the show! The White Queen starts before the White Princess in history.

Story: This 10 episode series follows the life of Elizabeth Woodville and her secret marriage to King Edward IV. Since the now Queen of England’s family were middle class commoners,  the English Court was in an uproar. One of the outrage subjects was Richard Neville who earned the title of “Kingmaker” due to his ability to, well to get a king placed on the throne.  He had been Edward’s right hand man in his climb towards the throne where Henry VI was de-throned. The “War of the Roses” starts here. Normally you think of Henry VII teaming up with the House of Lancaster to take down the House of York, but the blood and violence runs deeper than that. Both houses bear the sigil of the Rose, one House with a White Rose and the other with the Red.

Characters:    3 bros  I thoroughly enjoy the development of the characters in the series. You have the 3 brothers Edward (The King), George (The favorite) and Richard (The Loyal) of the royal house. Each brother takes on the characteristics listed above.   There are also the 3 main female characters of Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. Richard Neville (Anne’s father) plays a large role in the series as well. here’s plenty of drama and even treason boiling between the characters of the series. You have everyone reaching for the throne and trying to carry favor with King Edward, what’s a monarch to do?

Historical Accuracy: I didn’t know much about Edward IV other than his brother was Richard III who fell in the War of the Roses, allowing Henry VII to ascend the throne. This story was completely new to me. After a few episodes I started researching what events are documented (because who knows what really happened right?). The events in this series seems to match up well. What I found particularly interesting is that in this series (and the following White Princess series) both took different takes on the “Princes In The Tower” story. Since we can only speculate what happened, it’s nice that both sides were presented. There’s also another take on Richard III’s position towards the Crown that is commonly debated. The general  timeline is followed however, since it is fiction here’s more drama inserted to make the series Starz worthy.

Acting: I’ve really enjoyed the acting in this series. The only thing that bothers me is that the accents of some characters do not seem as genuine. It doesn’t really detour from the plot of the story so it is bearable. I like the sometimes gory scene or childbirth or battle. Watching from all 3 perspectives of Elizabeth, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville is really interesting as well. white_queens7   Their dynamic really brings the story alive in my opinion. The main plot revolves around Elizabeth, however, the links that each woman takes towards securing the throne is well represented.

This is the section of my reviews in which I list my main reasons that you should watch or “Play” the series and reasons why you may like to “Skip” this series.

Play:

  • You love historical fiction and watching the drama of Royals
  • A well acted plot and interesting timeline of events
  • A short, binge worthy series with a glimpse of historical events

Skip:

  • If you have a niche for English accents lol
  • Not a fan of period dramas
  • If you’re looking for a longer series (10-1 hour episodes, although the series links to The White Princess).

Thank you for reading my review! This weekend I will have the Extreme Rules Predictions post and Wonder Woman movie review! Have you seen The White Queen? Are you a fan of historical fiction and if so, what are some of your favorite series? What are you currently binge watching? Next week: Riverdale! Let’s talk historical fiction!

Megacon 2017 Convention!

Happy Memorial Day Novas! This past weekend I attended the Megacon Convention in Orlando and this short post will show some of the cosplayers I met! This was my second convention going in cosplay and I was FINALLY able to complete my Lana Kane costume. Let’s start the post with a comparison of Lana and my version of her!

Artist: One of the things I loveeeee about conventions would be the Dealer Rooms and Artist Alleys. You are able to pick up awesome pieces to take with you and some artists will actually customize your piece in front of you. We purchased a Wonder Woman spray paint picture and the artist created it in under 3 minutes! Take a look!

Another great part of conventions is the people watching! Some many cosplayers from different parts of the globe arrive with their costumes. The normal characters appeared like Deadpool, Joker, Harley Quinns and Overwatch Characters. What’s even more amazing is that there were plenty of couples dressed alike as well. We seen Kirito and Asuna from Sword Art Online and Ariel and Prince Eric from the Little Mermaid!  Here are some of the cosplayers that I had to highlight!

Swagggg- On Friday we were able to participate in several events. These events concluded with us getting swagg to take home. We also received great coupons and deals on entertainment like Medieval Times. Also, I had to pick up a few things for myself and friends as well. Here’s what I obtained.

Thank you for taking a look at my convention weekend! We had a blast and I cannot wait until my next one! What did you think of the post? Have you ever cosplayed or attended a convention? Let’s talk Geek!

Throwback Thursday:Childhood Games

Happy Thursday Novas! Remember when you couldn’t wait to get out of school so that you could go outside and play in the neighborhood? I know that our current era is built around everything being technological and we see less children outside playing. This post is dedicated to my childhood and the games that we played outside everyday! Time to bring on the Nostalgia!

TV Tag– TV tag was a version of tag where you had to say the name of a tv show (not already mentioned) anytime the person who was “IT” tried to tag you. I remember playing in the neighborhood all of the time.

Hopscotch– hopscotch was a fun chalk game to play. You would draw the numbers 1-9 in boxes alternating from 1 foot hop to 2 feet hops. You would start at the safe area, throw a rock on a number starting with 1, and hop 1 foot and 2 feet up and down the board. When you were returning back to start, you would have to stay on the number above the rock and pick it up without falling. 

Curb Ball– Curb ball was so much fun. I’m sure everyone has played a version of this game where you would throw a ball to the curb on the other side of the street. Each person would stand on their respective curbs. If the ball hits perfectly and bounces back to you it was 10 points. Alternately if the ball pops off the curb into the sky, if the other person catches it they received points. First person to 100 wins. 

Mother May I – Mother May I was a great kids game to play in your driveway. We had a long driveway so the neighborhood kids always played in our yard. One person would stand facing away from the others and be the Mother. You would alternate taking turns asking if you could take steps. Bunny hops, baby steps, umbrella steps. Frog leaps, etc. Mother would answer giving you a quantity of steps or saying no you may not. The first to teach Mother, wins! 

What Time Is It Mr.Fox– This was one of my favorite tag type games. The person who was “IT” was known as the “Fox.” They would stand a certain amount of paces away with their back towards everyone else. Each turn, anyone who wasn’t the fox would yell “What time is it Mr. Fox?” And would take the number of steps mentioned. At anytime the fox could turn and chase everyone back. If you were tagged then you were the next fox. Many of my friends now have never heard of this game but we played it all through elementary and middle school! 

O.U.T Spells OUT – OUT Spells out is pretty much dodgeball with a twist. It is a mix of Horse and Dodgeball actually. The person with the ball would throw at any opponent, if you get hit then you recieve an O. Whoever grabs the ball next is able to distribute letters with a hit and so on, so forth. If you receive all 3 letters (hit 3 times) then you’re out. Last person in wins!

These were some of my favorite childhood games growing up! What were some of yours? Do you remember any of the games I’ve mentioned? Let’s talk childhood games!
