Friday Game Chat: 2/19/21

Welcome to the weekly game chat! This is where I ramble on about the games I’ve played for the week. Sometimes the games will have been talked about before. Sometimes I’ll have played something different during the week. I sincerely hope you enjoy the blog! I figured you should see something not book related now and then.

I have to be honest, getting into games lately has been hard. Well, to be fair, getting into anything that I normally find interesting lately is hard. I even lost the daily progress that I’ve prided myself into doing. What I like to do is get on even if I don’t play to get the stuff and accumulate energy and what have you.

Luckily, I’ve really started getting interest in Yahtzee with Friends this week. Our family is doing really well in the Family Feast as well. It gets so frustrating having to work double hard just to get a decent spot in the tournaments. We are constantly against people with twice as many family members as ourselves. Personally, I think that there should be tiers in the tournament. The amount of family members you have should determine what tier you’re in. Maybe one day. Who knows? Either way, I’m just trying to enjoy the game again. Maybe even get both dice from the adventure board this time!

I’ve also managed to get Epic Games working on my laptop. For those of you who don’t have that love playing games, I strongly recommend it. You get a free game every Thursday. I haven’t played any yet, but I’m building quite the collection. If you are on it or if you make one, please feel free to add me! My name there is WillowReads.

I’m also considering playing Among Us. There are so many people around me who play it that I’m curious about it. Do you play? What are your thoughts on it?

Well, that’s all I can think to report for this week. I’ll try to report every week. Even if I don’t have much to report. Enjoy!

Friday Game Chat: 1/29/21

Welcome to the weekly game chat! This is where I ramble on about the games I’ve played for the week. Sometimes the games will have been talked about before. Sometimes I’ll have played something different during the week. I sincerely hope you enjoy the blog! I figured you should see something not book related now and then.


First of all, I’m sorry I haven’t updated this in quite a while. I didn’t really feel like I had anything to update in all honesty. Some days it’s all I can do just to log on and keep my daily bonus in tact. I’ve missed that quite a bit. I’ll try to start posting every week even if I don’t have much to say.

Guns of Glory: I now have my castle to level 22. But most of the time I’m only on long enough to get my daily tasks done right now. There was a huge stretch in which I kind of got really bored with the game and just wanted to quit. I kept on though. I have managed to hoard up quite a bit of material for the game for when I’m fully ready to play again. So there’s that.


All Criminal Case games: I’ve really not played any of these games at all. I get on once a day to check in for the 5 hints. I’ve made a rule for myself that I have to start playing the game once I hit 2500 energy. That way it’s not getting to an insane level. Before I deleted BlueStacks, I had about 10k energy on at least three of the games. It was insane.


Yahtzee with Buddies: This game has been frustrating me quite a bit lately in all honesty. We aren’t getting anywhere in Family Feast games. The leader of the family and myself put all of our dice in and we still struggle just to stay in the top 20. The family isn’t big, but we’re constantly being pitted against people who have more members than we do. On average, we have 3-4 people who play from our family. Most of the other families have 10 or more. It’s causing major burn out. I really want other people to join us, but I don’t even know where to begin to recruit.


KittenMatch: This really is a cute game and I really do adore it. But lately, I just don’t feel it. I’ve done little more than log on to stock up on stuff for when I do play.


I think that’s about it. I recently wiped both my desktop and laptop because I had an issue getting into my work programs. I lost Epic Games. I need to reinstall it and get better about trying out the games I get there. What games are you playing?

Sometimes I’ll have played something different during the week. I sincerely hope you enjoy the blog! I figured you should see something not book related now and then!

I haven’t played as much as I should. I’m waiting to level to castle level 17. I have been getting on every day. I also moved to the main alliance. I was in their farm alliance for awhile. It feels nice to have proven myself.

I have played even less of the other games. Especially Yahtzee. I got burned out on it really badly and needed to step back and take a break. I lost my log in streak with all Criminal Case games, but I do have access to another one of those now. Hopefully I’ll get some more time to actually play them! Maybe soon.

Sometimes I’ll have played something different during the week. I sincerely hope you enjoy the blog! I figured you should see something not book related now and then!

I’ve made quite a big of progress in this game. There was an invent in which I won two really big prize items. I was in shock! My castle is now level 16. I am close to having all my buildings to level 16 as well. I plan on waiting on Dustyn to get his caught up so that we can get to castle 17 together. It’s been really fun so far. I was made r4 in my alliance. It’s a true honor. They basically trust me to be in a position right below leader.

We just had another family feast event. We’re still very actively looking for anybody to join our family. The family is called Books And Dice. The leader is tigerkatt47. She’s amazing. My name there is WillowWritesAndReads. I do need to change that to StarsBooksAndTea if it will let me. Please feel free to join the family. You can also challenge me if you wish.

That’s all I have for this week. I haven’t really had a lot of time to play games this week. It’s November, which means National Novel Writing Month. Writing is going to be my top priority this month. I have also been adapting to a new shift as well. At least I have made some time for my games! I would go mad without them!

Game Talk: 10/23/20

This is my first official blog in the revival of this series. I’ll have a graphic for it next week. Originally, I had intended to talk about a different game every week. My new intent is to just talk about the games I’ve been actively playing. I’ll also include my information for anybody who may play as well and want to add me.

What I plan to do is make notes during the week of the games I play and my progress in them. Then I’ll post the game and a few sentences or paragraphs about my week in the game. The games may vary a lot as the weeks go by. There might be some I consistently play though. I sincerely hope you enjoy though!

Criminal Case:

I probably won’t add this in weekly blogs as much unless I’ve actively played during the week. I make it a point to log on every single day so that my teammates have another 5 hint player. I just don’t get around to playing all the time. I do have a lot of energy racked up though. So I could play for hours if I wanted to. Which I do on occasion. If you need teammates, add me on Facebook. I strongly recommend that your profile not look suspicious or you leave a message letting me know why you’re adding me.

Coin Master:

This is another game that I probably won’t talk about every single week. I really like letting spins wrack up and then using them all at once. So I don’t really play often. I prefer to get a thousand or more spins racked up before I play it. If you play, you are more than welcome to add me to my Facebook.

Yahtzee With Buddies:

Love this game very much. I should start playing it more. I’d love more buddies to challenge to games. I’d also love to add more people to the family I’m in. We just started it. Add my Facebook! I’ll probably not talk about this game often except to reference that I want more buddies. There’s not really a lot you do on there that’s worth chatting about.

Guns Of Glory:

This game consumes a good portion of my time and will probably be referenced a lot. I’m currently at castle level 14 working towards 15. I used to play a long time ago and quit. There were too many reasons. I had a castle level 28 before. I started playing again because of my mom and she was in a different Kingdom than my old account, so I just started all over. I like the game itself, but the reasons I quit are still there. It’s way easier to play it now than it was before though. If you decide to give this game a chance, I’m in Kingdom #593 and my name is LadyStarReads. When you first start the game, you are gifted a teleport that lets you move to a different kingdom if you desire. It’s pretty simple. But just let me know if you need help!

Kitten Match:

This is such an adorable game. I play when I can. I haven’t played it long. A little less than a week. I’m on level 100 something. I can’t remember which level. I’ve already collected quite a few kitties!

That’s all the games I can think of right now. I kind of play a solitaire tri-peaks game. Not as often as I should. I tend to run out of coins quickly and they are needed to play. I let them rack up, but I forget to check in to collect coins every hour and yeah. What games are you playing currently?

Game Talk: Rediscovering My Love Of Solitaire

There are many different perspectives of what being a gamer means. There are some who look down on others. They claim that they aren’t authentic gamers. There are also some that pose as gamers because they think it will get them some kind of gain. To me personally, if you enjoy playing games of any kind and can spend hours playing games with no guilt, you’re a gamer. Board games. Video games. Computer games. Card games. They are all amazing.

On the note of card games, I recently remembered that most computers come with preloaded games. Including solitaire. I discovered they are all in one place now. You can earn these coins and level up in the games now. I’m still learning, but it seems pretty neat. They even have daily challenges!

I’m still playing a bunch of phone app games for side cash. I’m also playing Rise of Legions daily. I don’t play every game every day. The only ones I play every single day are the ones that have daily tasks that have to be done that day. I’m not trying to burn myself out. I was just very happy to have discovered the computer game I did and wanted to share it! Anybody else a solitaire fan like me?

Weekly Game Update: 3/7/20

It’s been a pretty interesting week. I’ve been struggling to get caught up on audiobooks so I’ve had a lot of game play time. I’m telling you. There are not enough hours in the day! I wound up falling down a rabbit whole of money making apps. They aren’t things that will completely kill any need to work. They will eventually get me a bit of spending money here and there. I don’t expect to be making a killing. I won’t lie, I do wish it was a bit faster. It is what it is though.

We had two different nights where we didn’t complete dailies. We were distracted with doing other things. We both got hired with a company we’ve been aiming for! It’s exciting! We don’t start until the 20th. But we will work things out! Either way, I’m still loving this game. I’m just juggling too many at one time. Some are falling through the cracks. Hoping I’ll get more into this game soon. I don’t hate it. It’s just falling through the cracks! Please feel free to friend me if you play! My ID is 9302460. It’s free to play on Steam. Please note that you can’t add friends until you’re level 5.

I have no racked up just a bit over $40 with this app. Just $10 more dollars and I can cash in. I expect it to take about a month or so. Who knows? It’s still fun to play. I get my scratching kick in without spending a ton of money. Money that I can’t afford to throw away! I don’t get on as much. They reset the cards and eggs every 8 hours for me now. I get on about once a day. Twice a day if I remember. I’m working on it. If you haven’t tried it, please join using My Link.

I started an app called Word Juice. It’s a pretty decent game. It’s kind of like all the word apps like it, but you can earn a bit of cash. I’ve so far earned $26. I can’t cash out until I hit $100. You get a bit of change for every round. Which helps. You have the chance to double what you earn with an advertisement. If you wind up trying it out, please consider using My Link

This game has probably taken up most of my time where games are concerned. It is a cash app, but you really don’t get a TON of cash. I have earned $3.23. Either way, the game itself is really fun! I’m enjoying it so much! I may be earning slowly, but I’m earning. That’s what matters to me! I can cash out at $10. It’s called Fishing Cashing. The name could use some work. I won’t lie. I still enjoy it. My Invite Code is 58573. Feel free to join me!

I’ve played some Idle games. They were pretty decent at first. I’ve earned money. Each one has about $20 on it. I am not able to cash out until I play the game for 30 days and some other challenges. It makes me feel like they won’t pay. We will see. I’ll mess with it for the 30 days and go from there.

I may have more games to report next week. What games have you played this week?

Weekly Game Update: 2/29/20

I’ve decided instead of talking about a game every week, I’d just post my updates on the games I play. I have this habit of getting stuck on a game and playing it until I get burned out. So this is just easier.

Rise Of Legions

Haven’t really played this game much except to get the dailies done. I did tweak some of my decks. My fiance and I play this game together. We do co-op challenges against computers. It can get a bit tedious at times, but we find ways to make it fun. It’s really great when I sneak spells or cards on his side to see if he notices! If you’re interested, it’s free on Steam. If you play and like it, once you hit level 5, you can add friends. My friend code is: 9302460

Best Fiends:

They have been looping events around. It’s cool because they save your progress, but it can be overwhelming. I managed to string a VIP chain that lasted for days. I finally ran out yesterday or the day before. Haven’t had much time to commit to earning more back. I’m on level 230. I can’t say the levels have been smooth sailing, but they aren’t irritating for the most part.

Dice Royale:

There’s an app called Mistplay. You earn points towards gift cards for playing apps that they recommend. This is one of them. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have even tried it. The ad is completely bogus. The game is nowhere near as entertaining as they portray it to be. The main complaint is it takes forever to get money. My only response to that is: Well, yeah. They are ad supported. You don’t put any of your own money into it. Just saying.

Happy Scratch:

I can’t remember where I found this app. It’s decent. I’m not in love with it, but if it earns me a bit of cash, why not? Also, I have this thing where I love scratching scratch off cards. I hate paying for them, but I love scratching them off. My family used to let me when I was a kid. They claimed I was good luck. Anywho, I haven’t cashed out for the first time yet, but I’m about $10-15 away from being able to do so. I can’t complain.

That’s all the games I have played this week that I can think of. I have piddled with some coloring apps, but I don’t really count those as games. What games have you been into this week?

Game Talk: Best Fiends

I used to use this app where I earned points for gift cards for playing apps. One of the games I played was this one. At the time, I enjoyed the game very much, but I had issues with it costing so much to level up the fiends. Eventually, I stopped playing. My fiance played it as well and he stopped when I did. It’s possible that I may have stopped because he stopped. I’m not really sure.

We both decided to start playing it again. It seems they have changed the game a lot. I find that I enjoy it more than I did. I’m also able to get through the levels really easy. I believe I started it again Friday, but it may have been Saturday. I’m not really sure. I just know that I am on level 132. I didn’t start at level 1. I can’t remember what level I left off when I quit, but I have made a bit of progress since I started playing again.

So far, I own 14 Fiends. I have gotten all of them to level 9. I’ve already started evolving some of them to 10. It’s a bit expensive, so it’s a slow process. But it’ll be worth it. Whenever I get a new Fiend, I boost them up to the level all the rest of them are right away. It’s probably silly, but I enjoy doing it.

I’m not really sure how to explain the game honestly. However, there are constant ads for the game. It’s really fun and it’s free. I think it’s only available on Android, but I’m not fully sure on that. It’s worth at least giving a chance. If you play, please feel free to let me know! I love chatting with people about games we have in common!

Game Talk: Rise Of Legions

I talk all the time about my love of reading. It’s a given that it’s a favorite hobby by now. I also have other hobbies I enjoy that I’d like to discuss more. I love writing. I love coloring. I love singing. Not that anybody will ever hear me sing, but still. I also love playing games. I wouldn’t call myself a hardcore gamer, but I’ve been known to obsessively play a few games.

The game I’m playing currently is Rise of Legions. I’ve been playing it since it released. I really love it. It’s a pretty easy and straight forward game. You can play against people. You can play against computer. You can play by yourself or with other people. It’s great. It’s also completely free!

I feel like it’s basically a computerized capture the flag. You make a deck of fighters from whatever colors you wish. There are three phases. Each card has a certain phase that it can start being played in. The later the stage, the more the cost of summon is. The main mission is to overtake the opposite side, over take three markers, and get to their side and destroy their nexus before they can destroy yours.

Other than playing rounds, they also offer newbie challenges, daily tasks, and weekly tasks. You earn cards, coins, and crystals by completing them. You can also unlock more cards by completing specific tasks. I’ve recently unlocked every card. It was awesome feeling!

I fully encourage everybody to give it a shot. It’s a free and fun game. I’ve really enjoyed playing it. So much! If you do decide to try it out, my Friend ID is 9302460. I’d love to have more friends on my list! Just a heads up, you can’t add people until you hit level 5, but it doesn’t take long to get there!
