Super Smash Bros Wii U/3DS
April 27, 2015 (Video Games)
Recently we’ve started holding some video and computer game events on the last Saturday of each month. Our most popular game by far is Super Smash Bros Wii U/3DS so we thought we’d share some great content we’ve found that will help you perfect your game or give you some good laughs.
Don’t understand some of the terms other people are throwing around? Check out Smashboards’ Glossary. You should be able to find any term you’ve heard here!
Looking to learn or brush up on the fundamentals of the game? Check out the Smash Theory playlist by Rush Hour Smash. If you don’t know some of the terms being used in the video, use the glossary linked above!
Looking for specific information on a specific character? Check out the Smashboards Forums. They have a wealth of information that is sure to teach you something new.
If you’re looking for some video entertainment containing the Smash scene in general, check out YouTube channel GRsmash. Their Top-10 type videos capture some of the best moments in competitive play. If you’re looking for some entertainment only for the latest edition of the game, check out the YouTube channel AlpharadTV. His character 101 videos may suit particular tastes only (there is also some coarse language), but if you like them you’ll probably be very amused. There are many more places where you’ll find entertainment such as the gifs posted on the Smash Bros subreddit so be sure to search around!
Players Wanted Board Game Menu
April 9, 2015 (Board Games)
We mentioned BoardGameMenu a few months back, which is a site that helps you decide what board game to play from your collection. Well, the creator was kind enough to create a custom page for the demo games we have at Players Wanted! The next time you’re thinking about what game we have that you’d like to try (say on our Tuesday or Thursday board game nights), go to the Players Wanted custom page and change the number of players in the link in your browsers address bar to match how many players you have.
Some of the new features the site has that you might be interested are seeing a list of the top games by certain categories (e.g. family games, party games, strategy games) and games that have been trending in the past week, past year, or all time. You can also use the more advanced features to compare and contrast game collections (e.g. your game collection vs. most popular strategy games to see what popular strategy games you don’t own yet). Hopefully these additional features help you out. Happy board gaming!
