    Parents To play or not to play the social media game, sex sells?

    From the NYT "New Endorsements for College Athletes Resurface Old Concern: Sex Sells". Many conversations about insta-gymmies. But the fact of the matter is there is now real money to be had, life-changing money for girls who cultivate a large social media following. And without a doubt, sex...

    Off Topic Shameless video game plug

    In a way I may out myself doing this, after so many years, but my son has developed a video game, that will release on August 10th. It is super cute, and super inexpensive and it also supports the planting of a tree for each purchase. So if you have the urge to try a super little game, from a...

    Coaches Game ideas for tumbling classes?

    I coach a few classes, all with different age ranges (2-4yrs, 3-6yrs, 6-14yrs). In my younger classes, I never know what to do for the full class. I usually do lots of stretching and drag it out, then I make an obstacle course and have them do that for the rest of class. What games could I add...

    Off Topic Talk to me like I came from prehistoric times about video game systems

    Long story short, my husband and I have never purchased a video game system for our kids and have never in our lives used them ourselves. Kids play some things that are available online on the computer, that is it. Now we are looking for something to keep 2 teen sons and 7 year old daughter...

    Off Topic The Video Game Thread Strikes Back

    So what's everybody else playing these days? I recently played and loved Octopath Traveler; it's been a good 15 years since I enjoyed a JRPG this much.

    Coaches Training game: brainstorm/game design

    The other day I came up with a workout game that can be used on all events. Each basic or routine skill is worth a certain number of points (which you only get for clean execution), and each upgrade skill costs a certain number of points. Basic skills also have bonuses for specific performance...
