My Animal Crossing New Horizons Island Tour

Remember back in March of this year how everything was frantic? People were on lockdown in their homes because an invisible predator floated through the streets. The world was restrained to their homes but a video game release came at the right time. Animal Crossing New Horizons flew to the top of the best sellers list and remained there for months. In that first month of release, players fought to be the first to get a 5 star island. After…

Pokémon GO Fest 2020

This year’s Pokémon Go Fest is now a worldwide event that isn’t limited to a particular country. We all know it’s difficult to travel right now and the folks at Niantic didn’t want to skip out on Go Fest. So instead, the festivities are coming to you! I’ll update this page as we continue the event but I’d like to get the news out there to people who haven’t heard about it yet. There are 2 days for GO Fest…

I love Animal Crossing

You might be living under a rock if you haven’t heard about the new Animal Crossing game, New Horizons. It’s been a huge hit with the quarantine since people need to stay inside. This is the 5th installment for the main Animal Crossing series and I have to say it’s the best one yet. I’ve played the games over the years and fell in love with the laid back, take your time and play your way style. Each day happens…

An update on our Pokémon journey

Sander and I have been fans of Pokemon for years. I remember my cousin showing me his brand new Gameboy with this small little turtle on the screen. “Take it and play it,” he had told me. “It’s fun.” Little did I know that 20 years later I would still be playing this strange game. Of course now we’re 8 generations in and neither the The Pokémon Company nor I will be slowing down. Sander is in the same boat.…

Pokémon GO Fest 2019 – Dortmund

I’m not an active player in Pokémon GO (as compared to the first year) but that doesn’t mean I don’t play. When the announcement for Pokémon GO Fest Dortmund appeared, we were ready! There’s a new in game feature where the player can sign up for tickets to attend the special Fest events. We submitted our usernames and were rewarded with tickets! Now these tickets were €25 per person so it wasn’t a free to attend deal. And it was in…

Pokémon GO Community day – Cyndaquil

The Netherlands is known for its constant rainy weather which is fine most of the time if you’re a homebody like me. Unfortunately for us, the Cyndaquil event landed on a rainy day. That meant another trek out to the Kasteel Keukenhof for a romp in the rain. The weather was dry enough that some of us went out. A majority of the group stayed at home due to the promise of rain. This time around we split into two…

Pokémon GO Event – Gengar

The Pokémon GO group set out on our exodus for the first time at a relaxed pace. If you recall the previous Pokémon GO events, we’ve always sped around town (safely) and knocked out as many gym raids as we could. Today the pressure was low and no stress. So why Gengar? We assume that it should have been live the previous weekend as a Halloween event. Gengar caught on this day also have a special move – Lick. Gengar…

Pokémon GO Community day – Beldum

It’s that time of the month again! Time to pack our extra battery packs and head down to the Kasteel Keukenhof for some shiny hunting. You know the drill if you’ve been following me for a while. We head down to the park and meet up with our local group. From there we walk 2 hours as we catch virtual monsters on our phones. This community day was like the previous ones. This time around we were after Beldum and…
