Win A Doctor Themed Kit to Celebrate the Release of Operate Now Season 2 | #OperateNow

I love playing mobile games. They are a great way to pass the time while waiting on doctor’s offices, or just when you have a few moments to kill. One of my favorites is Operate Now. I have been playing it for a while and it is a lot of fun. In this game, you control the fate of a hospital, it’s staff, and it’s patients. In order to celebrate the release of volume 2 of this popular mobile game, I am hosting a fun giveaway!

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Is Filled With Fun & Strategy – Only for Nintendo Switch | #MarioRabbids

My family is a family of gamers – as you likely already know. We tend to run out to the store and pick up the latest games the day they come out. There was one in particular that we had been dying to be released for our Nintendo Switch – Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. I could tell from the trailer video that it would be a huge hit for our family. When Ubisoft sent us a copy of it (plus a really amazing collectible), I was proved right! We spent the entire long Labor Day Weekend playing it.

We area  gaming family. At least three or four times a week we all sit down together and play a board game. Don’t get me wrong, we love playing our video games together, but sometimes a good board game can bring you close together.

One of our favorite gaming companies is RoosterFin. They have a long list of fun family games – many of which we own. Our newest favorite is Wizard Roll.

Summer Isn’t Over Yet: Keep It Going with Nintendo New Releases! | #Nintendo #Gaming

Summer is in full swing, and what better way to spend the last few weeks than playing video games with your family? My husband and I both have Nintendo 3DS’ and my daughters have Nintendo 2DS’. I cannot even explain how much I enjoy a lazy Sunday with the 4 of us lounging around the house playing video games together. We like to race in Mario Kart – and of course Quick Link Battle in Pokemon Sun and Moon. We also help each other fill our Pokedexes by trading rare Pokemon to each other. Because I love these systems so much, I want to tell you about a couple fun and exciting new releases!

Hot New Mobile Game Snoopy Pop Out Today | #SnoopyPop #PopGoesTheSnoopy

t should come as no surprise to you to hear that I am big into mobile gaming. I have been gaming since I was a little girl and still do every chance I get. In fact, I am raising my daughters to be little gamers themselves. They are 4 and 5 right now and ask to play games every night. We recently got a Samsung Galaxy Tab A preloaded with a mobile game that wasn’t even out yet (until today!) – Snoopy Pop! To say they were excited to try it out is an understatement.

3 Mobile Games I Can’t Stop Playing and Why You Need Them | #MobileGaming

You should know that I am a huge gamer. We have the Nintendo Switch, a Playstation 4, an XBOX 360, and even a (few) Nintendo DS in our house. But sometimes I just can’t help but pull out my phone and get some good mobile gaming action in. There are a few games that are basically on my mind constantly right now. If I get a free moment, no matter where I am or what I am doing, I pull out my phone and get to gaming. I have decided I cannot live without them and I need to tell others about how amazing they are – so here we go.
