Welcome to Chumpmonkey.com - A Gaming adventure with my 2 boys and I.

Gaming is fun. Whether it's board gaming, video gaming, sports gaming. It is just an enjoyable past time. Growing up I played a myriad of games with my family. Mainly the old staples of Monopoly, Life, Connect 4, etc.

Later on (I was 12) we got an old IBM PC 8086 (dual floppies!) with CGA graphics! My first game was Pole Position.  Man, was it fun.

Check out those graphics!

And that started my journey to a hobby that I still enjoy today and now that my boys are getting older it's a hobby that we're introducing to them as well. Today I enjoy playing video games as my hobby. Some days I play a little too much. Some days I play none at all. And yes, I do balance (or try) it out with other hobbies and works as well. As with anything, moderation and discipline is necessary.

Our family also plays a lot of board games and when summer break rolls around we'll be playing a ton more with the boys. So amidst games of Sorry! Sliders you'll see games of Castle Panic and Carcassone.

I've been wanting to do some journaling and talk about gaming and kids. Might even do some reviews. I'll be doing this from a perspective of a dad and a Christian. There are a lot of good games out there (both board and video) and there are a lot of bad games out there. I will do my best to talk about these games and how we approach them in our household with our boys.

So please stick around and let me know what you want to hear/see. I'll do my best to address things things that are hot topics in discussions for you and your kids.

  2. Arcade games aren't always deemed fine with employers and school administrators. To add to the mess, free flash games aren't always up to par- and thus provide no help in curing one of his or her boredom. www.playmotupatlugames.net
