Develop The Engineer in Your Child Through @Minecraft, Now Available at @Bestbuy

It is the digital age it is not easy to keep kids from staying too long playing with the computer. Sometimes, adults use it as a tool to keep kids busy while mom or dad are taking care of other things around the house.

Minecraft is family-friendly and just for kids and teens to explore. It’s a game where the player builds everything from scratch with blocks that has to be earned. It’s an adventure from the very start and no player will play the same track. It is not at all easy, but the player gets the hang of it very quickly. It will never be boring and with every step the player will always be thinking of ways to build to get the task done. As with most games, there are also hurdles and  challenges to conquer. In this case, monsters are one of those.

Whether one plays in creative mode having unlimited resources or in survival mode mining deep, crafting weapons and armor to defend against monsters, this can be played alone or with friends.

Playing with this game develops methodical thinking patterns for puzzle solving,  promotes ideas how to build, while spontaneously solving problems that appear at a moment’s notice as outside forces try to bring the player down.

The Best Place to Play Games in the Denver Metro area – #GAMEWORKS!

Screen Shot 2016-08-06 at 3.37.35 PM

Our family has gone to many different places that offers video games and other types of electronic entertainment in the Denver Metro area and other parts of the country, but we found our new favorite place to play the newest and latest video games and it’s called GAMEWORKS!  Earlier this week, I made plans to take visit GAMEWORKS with my eight-year old daughter and some of relatives.  Immediately after we arrived, we noticed they have over 160 video games and most of them we had never seen or played before.  They have video games you play to win tickets to buy prizes and other video games you play just for fun or to compete with your friends.

Also, GAMEWORKS has other areas to have fun with your friends and relatives, which includes laser tag (5,500 square feet – the largest in the Denver area), their eSports lounge to play LAN games solo or with others and party rooms for birthdays or other special gatherings.  We arrived around 1pm and had a great lunch before we played any games.  I was so amazed with their menu selection and how great their food tasted.  For example, the salmon I ordered was cooked perfectly, my daughter loved her chicken parmesan sandwich and we both really enjoyed their sampler appetizer.

Then, the game playing commenced!  It was hard to decide which video game to play first because there are so many new games to choose from.  I had fun watching my daughter play a crazy air hockey game that dumps dozens of different sizes of pucks to hit all at the same time. 

For me, my video game favorite is shooting games and I found the most fun and addicting shooting game I’ve ever played there.  I’ve never played a video game for so long as this one.  Then, we played Laser Tag in their state-of-the-art arena that has two floors and so many places to hide and ambush the other team.

After Laser Tag, we visited the eSports arena which is something I’ve never seen before.  It’s a video game lounge with dozens of Xboxes and monitors so gamers can play on their own or with others in the room.  They also have several big screen TVs that are ideal for playing a video game with two people where they play against each other or as a team.  We were planning to stay for a couple of hours, buy we stayed into the night and had so much fun we can’t wait to go back.

We were so impressed with how helpful and friendly the staff was during our entire visit.

So, the next time you are looking for some fun playing games or need a place to have a special event like a birthday party, you need to check out GameWorks.com because you won’t believe how much fun you will have there with everything they have to offer!
