Here is another great outdoors weekend game. Horseshoes can be played by most people and in most locations. The only real limitations are that the horseshoes are 2.5 lbs and not everyone will be able to throw that weight with any consistency. That being said it is a great way to spend an afternoon with friends and family and is an excellent spectator sport for those not participating. […]

Bocce Ball

Bocce Ball – The greatest weekend outdoor game

For anyone that has not played bocce ball they should try it when they get the chance. Anyone can play, young or old, which makes it a great family and get-together-game. It can be played virtually anywhere on any terrain. […]

What the Heck is a BUNGY?

As you may have already figured out I like playing games, poker being one of them. Often when I am playing poker with a new group of people and we are playing Dealer’s Choice (the dealer decides which poker game to play) I like to introduce Bungy. You won’t find this game being played at any casino or online poker site. […]

Poker Strategies

I have written in the past about my online poker experiences and tried to provide a few tips here and there. I always felt, as I was writing them, that my poker lingo and theories were a little too advanced for those that were just starting to play poker. I’ve found a site called Poker on a Mac and the entire site is dedicated to playing poker. […]

The Bigs by 2K Sports – Xbox 360

I just played The Bigs by 2K Sports on the XBOX 360 and have to say without a doubt this is the best baseball game ever! Many people find baseball very boring and it’s understandable when some games are 3.5 or 4 hours long with multiple pitching changes.

The game can really drag sometimes. […]

I saw this game advertised on Breakfast Television this morning and I thought I would share it with you. I’m a huge fan of these simple outdoor games. They are easy to play, bring friends and family together, and fun!

The basic idea is similar to Bocce Ball or Horseshoes. […]

Poker Sunday: Week 3 – Born Under A Bad Sign

Things have gone from ok to horrible. Last post I explained how I felt playing good cards would be the right move in the long run and I still believe that to be true. I also explained that you will go on tilt every once in a while, which is also true. […]

Make Money With Acquire

One of my favourite board games is called Acquire. It’s not a very flashy game. The board is a simple grid and alphanumeric tile pieces represent hotels that fit in the grid, but there is a lot of strategy, forecasting, and deception involved.

The game is all about making money, […]

Nintendo Wii – Excite Truck

Nintendo Wii - Excite Truck

The past weekend a friend of mine came home from Pennsylvania and he brought his Wii with him. I love video games, but have always felt the XBOX was the best system out there. Nintendo has gone in a different direction with the Wii, in that the graphics are not as good as XBOX and PS3, […]

Texas Hold’em Poker Sundays – Destiny’s Calling!

Many nights I have dreamed of being a professional poker player, being on national television at the final table and winning millions! This is the life that I want and why shouldn’t I be able to have it?

Week after week I see regular shmoes like myself winning these huge tournaments. […]
