I’m pretty late to the party on this one but after some incessant nudging from my family, I finally installed Candy Crush Saga on my iPhone and gave it a whirl. It reminds me of all those match-3 games like Bejeweled, but with much better graphics and easier gameplay. And, oh that music. So hypnotic. I keep hearing it in my head long after playing.
I’m still in the early levels and already having problems with some of them. I’ve heard there are incredibly difficult boards up ahead. My sister says sometimes it takes her weeks to finish one. I don’t know how people are sticking with the game if it gets that frustrating. I’d just skip ahead with some Candy Crush cheats rather than knock myself out playing the same level over and over and over again.
I think this guy has the right idea, though.
During the summer season last year I didn’t have so much plans of hiking or going on a vacation trip but when my friend john asked me to go for golfing in Arizona, i was very hesitant to say yes since i had never played golf in my life. I always felt golfing as a hard sport that required special talent to play and despite this feeling, I thought it could be nice of me to try my luck since i only watched golf players on Television commercials. My friend john was quite familiar with golfing since his father spent most of his leisure time playing golf in some courses in Utah and most of the times john had always accompanied his father to spent some fun moments with his Dad.
My friend John had always been fascinated by golfing since he grew up in the house-hood of his golfing hiking dad and with that upkeep life he felt it would be nice if we spent time together on some golf courses in Arizona. Since from 4th grade i had known john for a long time, we lived in the same neighborhood and we did all crazy staffs when growing up together. When i was refreshing our lives back in the days i thought it was nice for me to join him on a golfing vacation in Arizona and since we all had well paying jobs money for the vacation was not a problem.
After Wednesday night we bought air tickets for traveling to Arizona and also made some early online booking for lodging services at Holiday Inn hotel in Phoenix area. On the following day we packed packed our staff and left Salt lake City International airport at 12.30 pm and within one hour we had already got to our destination. I felt quite exited when we arrived at Holiday Inn hotel, I could see the beautiful green fields of the Golfland Sunsplash and Fiesta Lakes Golf course which were half a mile from the hotel location. With all the time in the world we decided to take a walk on the Fiesta Lakes Golf course and to my expectations, I never thought it could be such a great time.
John had already carried all golfing equipments and for the first time i decided to give it a trial. I placed the golf to the golf holder and at a distance of 350 yards from the hole, I gave out my first kick. It was an astonishment to see how close i got near the hole, John shouted to me, “You are a genius man, did you see what you just did?”, I couldn’t believe it and with my second kick i finally made my first score. I felt so exited after making my first score in golfing, we spent more time playing golf that evening since it became so addictive to me. As time passed by i felt so great for making the decision to go golfing in Arizona.
I’m guessing most people have heard of Harry Potter. You know, boy wizard. Hogwarts. Fighting He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Well, the Muggle community has been hotly anticipating the full public release of Pottermore, an online edition of the incredibly popular book series and movie series from author J.K. Rowling. It was announced last year and was available in beta to a first wave of users, but for many months, no one else could access it.
That is, until a spell was cast this weekend and it opened for the public. I missed out on the beta but got my first crack at it and it’s good. I was maybe expecting more of a game and was perhaps a little disappointed that there isn’t more to do. But as a fan of the books, I was really happy to get a chance to go through the world as though I was in it instead of merely reading it. And there is a lot of really cool background material from J.K. Rowling that goes into great detail on how the books and characters came together. If you’re a Harry Potter nerd like me, you’ll probably love it regardless.
The main part of the experience is going through all the Chapters and Scenes (which are called “Moments” in Pottermore). They mirror the original book closely so you’ll probably know what to expect. You need to find items and unlock content along the way. If you get stuck, there are plenty of Pottermore guides on the Web to help you out.
The best parts happen early on. In Chapter 5, you get your own wand at Ollivanders in Diagon Alley. Then in Chapter 7, you get sorted into a house at Hogwarts after wearing the sorting hat. Both of these events work by asking you a series of questions and your responses help determine the result.
After you finish all seventeen chapters, you can participate in wizards duels and brew potions to earn house points for your house at Hogwarts. Other than that, there’s not much to do besides wait for Book 2, The Chamber of Secrets to be released.
