Friday Fun and Games
In case y'all don't have anything to do today, I want to present a new game for your enjoyment and entertainment.
Direct from the publisher:
Snood is a fun puzzle game that tests your intellect rather than your reflexes. Your goal is to free all the trapped Snoods by launching other Snoods at them. If you connect three or more Snoods, they will transport away. If that leaves any Snoods not connected to the top of the playfield, they will fall to safety. Don't take too long, though. Every Snood you launch increases the Danger Level. When the gauge fills up, the Snoods will shift downward. If the Snoods reach you, the game is over.Registered users can even design custom difficulty settings and puzzles. Each difficulty level maintains its own high-score list and statistics.Special note for parents: Snood is a good game for children. The game is nonviolent and nonconfrontational, and children can play at their own pace. It develops several basic skills, including matching, calculation of angles, simple strategic assessment, and problem solving. It does not require reading, and the controls are very simple. The Child difficulty level is easy enough for young children to enjoy (ages two to three). Conversely, Snood is fun for older players as well.Requires DirectX.
Readers of Bonnie Wren will notice the similarity to Bubble Shooter. I prefer Snood, mainly because you have access to all levels without having to buy the registered version. Definitely not because it's easier! Also, I like the fact that Snood keeps your top score from time to time you play. I know at one point they are going to be a little more insistent that I register, but for now... I'll save my money to buy my BAFABW winner his/her book (see how cleverly I worked that in there?).
And, here is the new Friday's Feast. Play along and leave a note. It's fun.
When you travel, which mode of transportation do you prefer? If I could afford it, I would fly everywhere I went. However, I LOVE my roadtrips with Bob. We always manage to have fun whenever we go anywhere. I grew up with a grandfather who ONLY stopped for gas. You had to make sure your bodily functions were in sync with his gas needs. Bob is like me. We prefer to lollygag on our journeys. There ARE times when we are on somewhat of a schedule or we are in a hurry to get somewhere, so we go (mostly) the direct route or with few stops, but we like trying new ways to get places. If we see an interesting road, we'll see where it takes us. We've discovered so many things we wouldn't have found if we'd stayed on the beaten path.
Have you ever met a blogging friend in person? Not yet, but I have met other online friends before the days of the blogosphere. It was fun, and I'm looking forward to meeting a lot of my blogging friends.
When was the last time you were really, really tired? A week or so ago, I had a night I didn't sleep at all. The next night, I was really, really tired! Especially since we'd had a hard day at work that day.
If you could have dinner with any one fictional character from a book or movie, who would it be? Oh, heavens. Let me see. For a voracious reader, that's a tough question. I think it would be Jo March, from Little Women. Or... no, no... Anne from Anne of Green Gables. Or... no,no... wait... Rhett from Gone with the Wind. Or....
Fill in the blank: One day, I hope to see _______________. all my children grown, healthy, happy, and successful in all their dreams.
