3ppT Recap: 4/2/15... or "3ppT's 1st TPK"

Thursday, April 9, 2015

So, we actually had a big night! In addition to our four returning players, we had two new players join the table and a couple voyeurs interested in playing but without the time to join that particular session. We may be opening up a second table soon!

To the event itself-

Rayman Legends Is Finally Mine

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

Rayman Legends
has been right at the top of my must own list for a while. It's one of the flagship games built with the Ubiart framework, the engine that has brought us games like Child of Light and Valiant Hearts. Less heart-wrenching history or poetic fairy-tale, Rayman Legends is a thing of pure joy. It's not enough to say that I enjoy playing this game, I'm enthralled by its charm, humor and design. 

Raising Children With Games

Thursday, April 2, 2015
The Maw was one of the first games they played. An old picture, but I think it illustrates good game manners well.

Ours has always been a house of gamers. My wife and I both play games and have since before we started dating. We courted over Halo and have used Borderlands to keep in touch with some of our friends who have moved away. Our kids have been interested in games for a long time and in recent years have started playing games on the console and PC. A while back, my brother asked me what our policy was for regulating our children's time with games and I found it difficult to answer. Since then I've received a few requests for an article on the same topic. I've taken some time to look at our rules for games and hope that what I present below will be useful.
