How To Make Your Family Happy and Lose Your Laptop

I wrote a post about Big Fish Games, but I had to move it over to Hollow Tree Reviews.

It starts like this:

It was late at night. We were finally alone, huddled together on the couch. There was grunting. And moaning.
Right there! Right there!
Ooooh, that had to hurt.
Yes! It's the kind with two balls!
This was the scene in my living room over the weekend, as Gerry and I spent some quality time together.
Killing zombies.

Crappy photos courtesy of my shaky hand and a lack of light.

Hmm. If mine are the only comments, do I get the free downloads? I really do like the game, and it does foster quick and analytical thinking. Just saying.

I love how you make a promo funny. I'd watch more ads if they were written by you.

How does Blogger not know the word "analytical?"

Meredith said...

Sounds like you guys completely know how to rock couple time. Killing zombies together is truly the stuff that bonds you for life ;)

OK, I perused their catalog and decided on All My Gods. The screenshots show a lot of Gods and fire and erupting volcanoes so it looks like something I can totally relate to.

Marianne said...

I gotta get me one of those pretzel holders. I think it would help, zombies or no.

Alecia @ ChickenScratch NY said...

Entering on behalf of my Zombie Loving/Hating husband. I always read him your posts and his eyes lit up when he learned he (I) might win a game. Plants Vs Zombie all the way!

Kimberly said...

Killing zombies together sounds so romantic.
You two crazy love birds.

robyn said...

I don't think so. Thanks! And because it's dumb.

robyn said...

I thought so, too! Plus, we learned that, in the event there's a real zombie apocalypse, Gerry is in charge of the killing and heavy lifting, while I'll be in charge of shouting helpful instructions.

robyn said...

It sounds absolutely *perfect.* Hopefully there's plenty of smiting!

robyn said...

I can tell you, it helps a lot more when it's full of something other than pretzels. ;)

robyn said...

Yay! Thanks so much for your comment! You (he) would love the game - it's super fun. :)

robyn said...

I know! I'll admit killing zombies while listening to Barry White was a little strange at first, but after a while you get used to it.

RoryBore said...

My kids love, love all those Hidden Objects games. They would crowd around the computer for hours playing them, if I let them.
truly tempting -- since it would give mama some time for her "pretzel holder".
My coffee likes the Irish Creme..er.... pretzels ;)

robyn said...

Ha! Mine, too (the kids liking games, and the coffee liking pretzels). It's nice when everybody gets something they like. ;)

Jacky aka Queenijax said...

Dark Parables looks interesting! ooh or haunted halls!

robyn said...

Great picks - good luck! :)

Shannon said...

Chris Farley reference? CHECK ;) I do have to offer an alternate view on people who chew toothpicks though- I love them, but only do to the chance that they'll try to do the flip it around in their mouth move and end up stabbing themselves like their mouth is a portcullis like the shady bowling alley dude in Uncle Buck ;)

robyn said...

A) I love you. B) Ditto. C) See A.

Commas are the bee's knees.

robyn said...

T,o,t,a,l,l,y.

I always thought you were pretty cool. But now? NOW? Because of this giveaway (got three Plants Vs. Zombies fans over here), and that last paragraph that had me peeing my pants, and calling over The Twins and reading it aloud to them, at which point THEY peed their pants, I absolutely adore you. Even if you are capable of utilizing commas way more obsessively than I.

Because I understand that this is a giveaway post, not a comma competition.

But I did sort of try to make it one.

A comma competition, I mean.

And I failed.

{the end}

robyn said...

I humbly bequeath my Comma Crown unto you, because you're no slouch in the comma department either, and because flattery, my friend, will get you everywhere. :)

Stacie @ Snaps and Bits said...

My younger son loves that game too!

robyn said...

Please tell me you know the secret to making them stop - now two of the kids and my husband are completely addicted!

The Third Partier said...

I have whupped up on PvZ about as much as one can whup up on something. It is fun, and once you've beaten the game and all the mini games and puzzles and bought everything you can buy and grown your wisdom tree all the way up and cultivated all three zen gardens to capacity, you can STILL go and play the regular game again, and it makes it harder for you so you don't get bored.

I know that was one long sentence, but I still think it was grammatically passable.

robyn said...

I agree. Awesome review - I shoulda waited to post this until you'd become fully addicted and then let YOU write the review.

I admit I kind of wish you were bored with it, though. ;)
