5 Phone Games To Keep You Entertained


As if we can't make you more distracted at work or with your family and friends, we have come across some amazing phone games to keep you entertained. We guess it pays to have younger siblings to keep us cool and in tune with the latest and greatest. Our first favorite phone game we are obsessed with is called Trivia Crack. If the name alone doesn't give you a hint of the type of addiction you will have with this game, then simply playing the game will. The object of Trivia Crack (which by the way is FREE) is to answer trivia questions and earn crowns in six different trivia categories. You can play your friends or random people. The first person to earn all six crowns is the winner. The game gets intense if you choose to 'Challenge' your opponent in which case both of you answer the same series of questions and whoever gets the most right gets to steal a crown from the opponent. Our second favorite phone game is Candy Crush. Believe us, we were sick of seeing Facebook and our Facebook friends constantly haggling us to try the game, but after a little convincing it's safe to say we have a "sugar addiction". The object of Candy Crush is to survive each round crushing candy. Simple enough and so, so fun! Our third favorite phone game is an oldie but a goodie: Scrabble. Talk about a great game to expand your knowledge of the spelling of words. QuizUp is our fourth favorite phone game application. Similar to Trivia Crack, QuizUp is a race to see who can answer a trivia question the fastest. It is intense! Our fifth favorite phone game app is well, well, it's one we have yet to try but maybe we will one of these days and it's Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. We have heard nothing but good things about the app and hey, she's added her sisters and mother to the mix so we are sure it is full of adventure.

What are your favorite phone game apps? Share with us in the comments!

The Bachelor/Bachelorette Fantasy Draft


Picture taken from ABC.com
Nowadays, football isn't the only sport where you can start a Fantasy Draft. If you're really into the Bachelor (or Bachelorette) like we are, then maybe it's time to place your bet on who will win the heart of Juan Pablo by joining a Bachelor Fantasy Draft. Some of our friends have been doing this every Bachelor and Bachelorette season so we finally decided to learn how to be apart of this. The below rules and scoring were taken from Bachelor Fantasy Draft. It's not too late to start, so feel free to start your draft now! Here is how they shared how to play:

Before the Premiere:Before the first episode, cast in your votes on who you think will be the last 5 girls (or guys) standing. Visit ABC.com to see a photo of each potential match and read their profiles to help you pick your top 5. At this time, you don't need to put them in order.

Before Episode 2:You can replace 3 of your 5 picks with new girls (or guys). If after the first episode, 4 out of your 5 picks get sent home, you still can only choose 3 new picks.

Before Episode 3:You have the option of replacing 2 of your picks with new girls (or guys). You don't have to replace any of your picks if you do not want to, but if one or more of your picks are sent home you need to replace them.

Before Episode 4:It's time to take all 5 picks you have and rank them first to fifth place. First place would be the girl you feel will win the heart of the Bachelor (or the guy who will win the heart of the Bachelorette).

Before Episode 5 until the final rose ceremony:The order and picks you chose before Episode 4 are your final and locked in picks for the rest of the season. You can not replace any of your picks, even if they get voted off. Good luck!

Weekly Bonus Points
Every week each player will have the opportunity to win 20 bonus points by answering the weekly bonus point question correctly: "Who will be sent home this week?"

Feel free to change up the weekly bonus question according to each season, or just a more exciting question...
"Who will sing to the Bachelor?"
"Who will be the outcast?"
"Who storms out?"
"Who kisses the Bachelor first?"

Ideally, the questions should be answered in that week's episode. You can watch the preview for the following week's episode where ABC almost always leaves you guessing something, like who was crying to the Bachelor/Bachelorette or who stormed out, stuff like that...

Top 5 Points

If you picked the right girl(s)/guy(s) in the correct order you receive points for every correctly placed pick...
1. 800 pts
2. 600 pts
3. 400 pts
4. 200 pts
5. 100 pts

If you picked girls/guys to be in the Top 5, but not in the correct order...
You receive 25 pts for each pick

Choose whatever you'd like for your "buy-in" amount, we started with $10 each player.

TSS FUN TIP: If you're getting together with all of your friends every Monday, have a board that has all the Bachelor women's faces (or Bachelorette guy's faces) on it. Each time a girl/guy is eliminated, cross her/his face off. At your get-together make sure you have lots of food and drinks and of course, include some chocolate roses for the rose ceremony--it's fun to be apart of the action!

Have fun!

Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel!


"I have a little dreidel, I made it out of clay.  When it's dry and ready, then dreidel I shall play.  Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of clay.  Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, then dreidel I shall play!"
-The Dreidel Song

In honor of Hanukkah, we decided to play a little game of dreidel.  How do you play, you ask?  Well, we have broken it down into easy steps!  Grab some chocolate gelt (chocolate coins covered in gold foil) and join in on the fun!

You will need:
-A friend or two (or more!) to play the game with
-A dreidel
-Chocolate gelt or any other fun tokens (candy, etc) 

1. Distribute the gelt evenly among players.
2. Take turns spinning the dreidel!  Each time before you spin, put one piece of gelt in the center, or "pot".
3. The letter the dreidel falls on determines what happens next. 
  • Shin: put one more piece of gelt in the pot.
  • Nun: do nothing.
  • Gimmel: take all of the gelt in the pot!
  • Hay: take half of the gelt in the pot.  If it's an odd number, round up.
4.  If you run out of gelt, you are out of the game... or you can ask another player to borrow!
5. Keep passing the dreidel, until someone wins the whole pot.
6. Winner eats the chocolate... hopefully your friends like to share!
7. To keep playing, each player can put a token back in the pot.  Resume the game.

Have fun playing this classic Hanukkah game, and Happy Hanukkah everyone!
