Game Carnival – July 25, 2007

Welcome to the Second edition of Game Carnival!

The game carnival is happy to present game and gaming related posts from all over the blogosphere. Brought to you directly to be enjoyed with food on a stick and an overpriced drink. Please watch your belongings as you enter the tilt-o-whirl and remember, the house of mirrors is not recommended for individuals with low self-esteem.

GAMES

Yehuda Berlinger presents The Definitive List of Harry Potter Games posted at Yehuda. Yehuda has put together a very comprehensive list of games, both video and board varieties. This is an extremely well put together site and deserves a long visit.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Games People Play … At Meetings posted at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. This is a short bit of verse about buzzword bingo, which sounds like a fabulous idea for a game.

BOARD GAMES

Annette Berlin presents How To Make Homemade Board Games posted at Frugal Journey, saying, “I’m a big fan of homemade board games. Making the board game is a relaxing crafty activity and using the made game is a big money saver.”

Gameguy presents Monopoly – Boardgame Icon posted at play2relax. This game can be found in almost any game cupboard in the world.

VIDEO GAMES

Aibek presents Top 5: Addictive and Challenging Web Games posted at MakeUseOf.com. If you do nothing else, please check out Desktop Tower Defense. You will be so glad that you did. I am already addicted to this crazy little game.

Scott presents 16 Most Popular Video Games on College Campuses posted at College and Finance. I was a little surprised that out of the sixteen games listed, I have played only one, and I’ve never even heard of the the most popular game. I need to hang out with more young people.

Alvaro Fernandez presents Nintendo BrainAge, Happy Neuron, Lumosity, MyBrainTrainer… posted at SharpBrains: Your Window into the Brain Fitness Revolution, saying, “Some guidance on how to select among the growing number of “brain training” games.”

That concludes this second edition of the game carnival. I was very impressed by the quality of the submissions. Make sure to finish all of your cotton candy and your funnel cake. After your sugar high subsides, feel free to submit an article for a future edition.
