It’s a rather short and not so sweet post for me this Worth Casing Wednesday. An extension to yesterday’s post and that 3 minute video… LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
Basically, during the school holidays we thought it would be fun, as a family, to put the unlimited part in our new Vividwireless internet plan to the test. This involved us all partaking in a bit of (older) family fun by way of what you might call online gaming. Not as bad as it sounds. Honest. Although some of my reviews of the actual games do make it sound like I was being tortured at times.
In a really loud, empty nutshell with an echo that goes on forever this is apparently a really funny sound effects game, where each player creates an audio experience to represent a given phrase.
If you are old school, like me, just think of it as your modern day family board games. The ones where you still connect as a family, it still involves actual real life interaction and a lot of belly laughs. It just means you bring your online devices into the lounge room and into the mix.
In an attempt to do a bit of a review for Vividwireless, I thought filming an entire session to share on the blog would be hilarious. We were having a whole heap of fun and rolling around laughing at a lot of the games. Out of the 3 hours that was captured, I only managed to find 2 to 3 minutes that was actually fit for publication. Here’s a little clue as to why…
I’d put the entire family on warning for this particular round… “KEEP IT CLEAN PLEASE. I would like to have something I can actually share on the video”. Then we get this question from Fibbage 2…
Because the aim of the game in Fibbage 2 is to fill the blank with a ‘lie’ that seems vaguely believable, so that in the next round your opponents will pick your lie over the real answer and the questions are rather suggestive to start with, this is where things got, shall we say, interesting.
With five of us playing and trying to keep it mostly clean, the computer threw up the real answer, an answer that wasn’t particularly suitable for sharing on the blog but I’m sharing it anyway…
Care to guess the answer? Taking the real answer out of the mix, would you say all five of us managed to keep things clean?
I’m now thinking, I should have put the parental mode on this game to the test before attempting to film anything. Anyway, you can find the raw and rather real video of some of our online antics with my family on yesterday’s post (HERE).
