Weekly Game Chat: 6/18/21

This week has been really interesting for me. I’ve been playing a lot of games and listening to a lot of audiobooks. It’s been really relaxing. I can’t even begin to explain. I was so happy to find there was a huge game sale! I love sales. Especially games and book sales.

This is a new game for me. I’ve only played one game so far. I’ve always been a huge Mario Party fan for a very long time. I wish I could get all versions on my switch. It’s a very fun game!

Another game I wish I had all versions of on my Switch. I would be in heaven. It’s one of the first games on my Switch that I played and loved. This is a really stress relieving game for me.

I’ve been really intense with this game lately. I’ve almost gotten the max daily points every day. I did miss a day. Sadly. Either way, I think I’m very close to some very big rewards. We shall see. I’m kind of nervous about it.

One of my new games. I love Monopoly of all kinds. I’m sure that almost everybody really loves this game. I find that I like playing this game better on game systems. It’s just better to keep up with everything that way! The only downfall is you can’t make up your own rules to give the game a fun twist. It is what it is though!

Weekly Game Chat: 6/4/21

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 played this game for hours one night with Dustyn this week. We wound up unlocking all the games and progressing to being able to play against medium players. It was really fun. I find this game very relaxing and enjoyable.

I’ve developed my taste back for this game. I’ve been playing it for hours every day most of this week. I’m very passionate about getting our family advanced further. I’m still looking to get us some more family, but we have gotten an influx in members. There’s that. I also barely made it to end of event and getting the dice I wanted.

What games have you played this week? Do you have a switch? I’d love to add if you do! Message me and we can connect!

So I decided to get myself a Nintendo Switch. It’s a very big deal for me because normally I don’t really splurge and get myself too many things. I always feel guilty when I do. I hear my family constantly saying how I don’t need this or that. But I digress. I believe I am now up to seven games now, but I’m not fully sure.

I have:

  1. Mario Kart 8
  2. Carnival Games
  3. Monster Hunters Generations Ultimate
  4. Super Smash Brothers Ultimate
  5. Just Dance 2020
  6. Just Dance 2021
  7. Zumba Burn It Up

I am so excited about all of these! I’ve already played all of them but the last three. I’m still a little nervous to try those out. I have been considering using them as a workout routine though. Depending on how well I do. We will see. Either way I’m very excited about it all!!!!!

Friday Game Chat: 5/21/21

I’m slowly getting back into this game as of a few days ago. Some drama happened with my alliance. My mom, Dustyn, and I play the game. We are all in the same alliance. So, when mom told me we were kicked out of the alliance, I thought that maybe they finally had it with Dustyn and I barely playing the game. We have both been very busy and the game had gotten stale for us both. When I got on intending to set up an alliance and find a safe place for us and build the alliance, I was surprised to find out that the entire alliance had been thrown out. It turns out that the old leader hacked the new leader and made himself leader and kicked everybody out. We all scrambled to find a new alliance. I think the alliance pretty much split into different alliances on a permanent basis. It sucks that one person divided a bunch of people, but at least I found interest in the game again. Looking forward to see how things go from here.

As for the rest of my games, I’m still just barely managing to log on them daily. I really do want more time in the day to get through all the games I want to get through every day. I’m currently behind on things, but I’ll catch up. Maybe even get things done in a timely manner and play games more! Especially Yahtzee with Buddies! We shall see!

I did put thought into getting a gaming console recently. I’m just not sure. I’m also not sure which one I would get if I did get one. If I didn’t get one, would getting a controller for my gaming computer be just as good? What are your thoughts? What games are you playing these days?

Still really flaky when it comes to gaming right now. I’m working on that. The positive side of it all is that I got a laptop specifically for gaming and blogging. So there’s that! I just need to get my games installed on this computer. I also have a tablet dedicated to app games. It’s a start. Right?

For all my gamers out there, what games are you into these days? I’m looking forward to getting into some games and would love to try out any game you recommend. Let me know!

I’m not exactly sure why I decided to make this post today. I really haven’t done much with games at all. I haven’t exactly lost interest in games. I just haven’t really had much time to focus on reading or gaming. It kind of feels like I’m tired all the time lately. I’m still adjusting to a morning schedule though. I’m a night person. It might take awhile. I still want to be able to report SOMETHING to this every week. Even if it’s a barely got any progress made in my games type update. I’m also going to try to start taking screenshots to add to this chat too. I’ve thought about making Sundays a gaming day and just get on Zoom to chat with people while I play whatever game. Or just play and listen to audiobooks all day long. Haven’t really decided the extent of the plans on that. We will see! Hope you’re having a great Friday!

This week I have been all about Yahtzee with Buddies/ Dice with Buddies. I’ve been busting my butt trying to keep up with the Family Feast and Games. We finally have a few active people with us! I’d obviously love to have more people join us. I’m not the leader, but I know her well. She’s lovely. I’ll post a screenshot of our family so that if you play and want to join us, you can. All are welcome!

I sadly haven’t been really focused on anything else. I managed to get my castle on Guns of Glory to level 24. I completely lost my daily log in progress for all Criminal Case games. Working on fixing that though. I’ve also decided that once training is over and I’m in production, I’m going to make Sundays a gaming day. I’ll most likely sit on Zoom during those days and hang out with anybody who wants to join me. Most likely I’ll listen to audiobooks during that time too. Plans on that will be more solid as the time comes closer.

Message me if you have any games you’d like me to play or want to know my info on the games I play so we can connect!

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!

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?

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.
