The Water Game

There are few games that can truly make you pee yourself because you are laughing so hard. This is definitely one of them. There really isn't a name for this game, so I am just going to call it The Water Game.

  • Friends (the more the merrier)
  • Water
How To Play:
  • Everyone in the group must fill their mouths with as much water as possible
  • The object of the game is to be the last one with water still in your mouth
  • You cannot swallow the water
  • Besides that there are no rules
  • You can do anything to make everyone else laugh the water out of their mouths, which includes tickling
This game can get very messy and wet, so be prepared. This game provides many laughs and my friends and I have had a blast playing it.

Minesweeper is the best game you can play if you are sitting down at your desk trying to procrastinate from writing your 2000 word problem-solving essay (which you shouldn't do.) It is a game of strategy. The object of the game is to clear an minefield without detonating a mine. Hence the name "Minesweeper."

How to Play:
  • There are 3 difficulties you can choose from, Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. Initially, you begin a game by taking wild guesses around the board until a suitable group of block reveals itself. From here, note the different numbers; these numbers represent the number of mines touching the box containing that particular number.
  • If there is a #1 in the box, then there is only one mine touching that box. You want to single out which one the mine is, and right click that box to put a flag on it, disarming the mine. If there is a #3 or even #5 on one of the boxes, then be careful cause there are a lot more mines around those spaces.
  • Once all mines are disarmed you win the game! There is a timer up top so you can try and achieve a better time later on.
  • Practice, practice, practice! The only way to get faster is to train your brain to learn certain patterns!
  • Stay focused, simple mistakes can end a game quickly!
Be careful, Minesweeper is a very addictive game and can turn into a MASSIVE time waster! But if you really enjoy playing Minesweeper and are interested in other fun computer games, then check out this blog here that has tons of other computer games that you can try out.

Have Fun!

The Art of Mario Kart

If you are going to play only one of the games that I blog about, this is the one to play. The greatest game ever to be played by humans. Mario Kart!

Mario Kart

  • Nintendo 64
  • Controllers
  • TV
  • Friends
How to Play:
  • First you choose your character that you are going to race with. The characters to choose from consist of Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario and Bowser. Yoshi is the best character you can choose. He is fast, great at turns, and very cute.
  • You then must choose the track that you are going to race on. There are alot of tracks in Mario Kart 64, I will give you the top 5: #5 Wario Stadium #4 Luigi's Circuit #3 Koopa Troopa Beach #2 MooMoo Farm #1 Toad's Turnpike
  • Controls: A button is to accelerate. B is to Brake. Z is to throw item. R is to Drift. Joystick is to steer.
  • Tip: Time your acceleration in the beginning till right after the second light lights up. If you do this correctly, then you will receive a boost in speed that might just be the deciding factor in the race.
Mario Kart 64 is the ultimate dorm room game and will will provide you with many countless hours of pure entertainment. With this game, YOU WILL NEVER BE BORED AGAIN!

Hockey Analysis

Hockey is a fast paced and physical sport with very limited rules and regulations. Due to this, there is a lot of fighting in Hockey. There are no rules against fighting except for the miniscule 5 min penalty. The reason for the allowance of fighting in hockey is that it draws in fans. They are using humanity's attraction for violence in order to sell tickets.

Hockey is an extremely physical sport with fast paced action. Hockey rinks are considerably small for a sports arena. The "blue line" rule which makes it so that if you cross the blue line with the puck you can not come back over makes it an even smaller playing area makes for closer quarters and more physical play. With more physical play and aggression, there are bound to be many fights.

There are very few rules in the sport of Hockey. You are allowed to check another playing, to lay them out and even able to take off your gloves and helmet and fight. There is only a 5 min penalty for fighting in the National Hockey League. With such a miniscule penalty for fighting, players do not hesitate to drop their gloves.

The reason for the allowance of fighting in hockey is that it draws in fans. Humanity has always been attracted to the expression of aggression. Ever since the Roman Empire when thousands would gather around to see Gladiators battle. Hockey is using this same mentality that the Romans used in order to make money. The sad thing is that it's working. Many people gather around Hockey arenas each week thriving to see a fight; making for little change within the rule-book of the NHL.
