Review and Giveaway: EA Games CLOSED

Well, it has begun. The smack talk at my house is at an all time high. Ever since I received Trivial Pursuit by EA Games for the Playstation 2, my husband and I have taunted each other endlessly.







We played the other night and of course I beat him!! Would you expect a different outcome? And he even got the "Hurricane Katrina" question, we live in New Orleans, so that was so a gimme.LOL

The Trivial Pursuit can play up to four players and follows the traditional game's format. This game has new categories of questions, all new never before seen questions, and the innovative Facts & Friends game mode. The quick-playing Facts & Friends mode adds a whole new social dynamic to the game that keeps everyone involved by encouraging you to guess whether their opponents will answer their questions correctly.

My only complaint was that the questions were difficult to read, but my husband said that it is because our TV is sooo small.

If you are looking for a fun game to play with your family, check out Trivial Pursuit. It is rated E for everyone and is available for the following gaming systems: Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 2.


I also got to preview Scrabble for the PSP. The PSP is my husband's, so this was my first time playing it. I found the game easy to play and figure out. We played two players and found that it followed the original format.





This is a GREAT option if you are looking for an education game for your child to play!
Like never before, you can strengthen your vocabulary, pattern recognition, and point strategies through fun training exercises. You then can apply your new found skills in real games against your friends and family as well as our adaptable computer A.I.


Scrabble is rated E for everyone and is available for PSP, Nintendo DS, iPhone, iPod, Online.

In our household, we're big 'golf' and 'Tiger Woods' fans, so we'ld love to play 'Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10' for the Xbox 360.

We also enjoy scrabble, and have various versions of the board game!

Thanks for the 'great' giveaway offering!

Please, include my family and I into your drawing!

Good luck to all!
