Life Lessons from Playing Candy Crush Saga

If one game can be both addictive, colorful, challenging and awesome – it becomes an instant world wide sensation.

I am one of the 3 million who got bitten by the Candy Crush Saga bug. When you spend hours with this candy-esque puzzle game, you dream of it and think of it all the time. Look at all the FANdemonium this game can spawned!

Here are 10 life lessons I realized while spending hours playing this game:

1. It doesn’t matter how close you are, you are not done til you are done
2. Unexpected combinations can lead to unexpected results
3. Be patient because the next best thing is just one move away
4. Give lives, receive lives and take a break
5. There are lots of way to skin a cat clear the jelly
6. Something that looks easy may not always be
7. Speed matters more than strategy sometimes
8. A multi can’t always save the day
9. Money can help you (fish, bombs, moves) but you don’t need it if you got experience and skills
10. Don’t get sidetracked by easy moves, keep your eye on the prize and objective always


Download the Game: IconPopQuiz

A month ago, I downloaded this game to see what I knew about Pop Culture. We had a bunch of friends over and over merlot and snacks, seeing how many characters you know is a great time. Characters from retro cartoons and symbols from current shows like Revenge.

The premise of this game is that they give you an illustration that gives you a partial clue. You can also buy hints with your points. It can be a sentence that’s a hint or it can be a few letters towards the final answer. You will have leeway even you get one letter wrong in the spelling but it’s the correct answer.

I really loves this for the holidays. If you play this on your iPad it is sure to be a full family affair of fun!

Download this Game: Letterpress

Letterpress is a relatively new game that I found that I actually bought. I love the themes, colors and simplicity of this game. It helps if you have a good vocab and a love for word games.  I play with with Fatema all the time and I like to start multiple games and play about 8 games at the same time.

It is really fun and challenges you to expand your mind and use more letters per word to get more points. The premise of this game is to create words. If you use the letters that the other player has used you convert the tiles to your color and get more points.

So fun!
