A to Z Challenge - Y - Blogfest!!!

And my video received recognition today for its second place finish at You Gotta Read Videos. Thanks again to all who voted!

Y?

Y it’s time for another blogfest!

First, there was the Dirty Dozen Movie blogfest…

Then, the Top Ten TV Shows blogfest…

Then, the Top Ten Countdown music blogfest…

How could I possibly top all that?

I probably can’t, but I hope I’ve come up with something fun that everyone in the blogging world can enjoy!


It’s All Fun & Games Blogfest, June 6, 2011 - list your three most favorite games and why. Board games, card games, RPG, video games, physical games, drinking games - even mind games! If it’s a game you enjoy playing, it’s worth sharing.

Not until June 6 - a whole month to recuperate from the Challenge!

Shall we play a game?

Dude, I'm "game" for this one.

Nebular said...

Games? Wow, I didn't expect that! :) Anyway, I'm in!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Wendy, you're caught up in the excitement!

Sharlene, that's why the blogfest isn't until June - give us all a chance to recover.

Nebular, I had a couple other ideas, but they would've limited it to writers only. So sticking with the entertainment theme, I came up with games. (And for me that means computer games!)

Jessica Bell said...

Oh man ... I'm exhausted just reading the word blogfest :-/ Good luck with it!

li said...

Not sure how this works, but what the heck, I'm in. I'll just follow along with everyone else. (If I goof something up, I would appreciate someone letting me know.) And I might even try to work the games into a story of some sort - who knows.

Liz P said...

I'm definitely in!

Sarah McCabe said...

Oh dear, another blogfest I can't resist! Now I'm going to have to reveal myself as an MMORPG geek.

GigglesandGuns said...

Sounds like fun but I need to think a bit.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

I'm in. Though it will be hard to pick just 3. We play A LOT of games

Matthew MacNish said...

Oh lord Alex! You'll have no time left for non-blogfest posts.

Still, this sounds like another fun one.

Stephen Tremp said...

I'm in. I already know my three. I had three siblings and we were all born within a six year span. So we played a lot of games together. When we weren't beating the heck out of each other.

M.J. Fifield said...

I love that you included Mind Games.

Old Kitty said...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!! Congrats with Cassastar trailer!! Fantastic news!!!

I'm rubbish at games! I can't even get the easy level of minesweeper! LOL!

take care

Cold As Heaven said...

Yupp, I'm in. I have a few games I like, and a couple I dislike. I'll give you all of them on the 6th of June ... that's Satan's birthday, btw >:D

Matthew, Ninjas always find a way...

MJ - uh-oh!

Glad so many of you are participating!

baygirl32 said...

I'm in! (lack of impulse control again)

Summer Ross said...

I have signed up for it and posted it on my blogfests page- Sounds like fun.

Karen Walker said...

Alex, I'm afraid to commit to another blogfest. Perhaps a few days from now after I've recovered from this one. But it sounds like fun!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Sorry Alex if all goes well with my hospital treatment I shall be returning home from yet another trip on that day so won't be able to take part in your nre blogfest.

Congrats on your 2nd place in the trailer.

Thanks for the comment on my blog but was unsure what you meant.

Have a good day.

Hannah Kincade said...

Alright, I'm in!!

Charles Gramlich said...

A huge feat, man. wow.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Baygirl, good for you!

Summer, thank you!

Karen, you have a whole month to think about it.

Yvonne, I'm sorry! I was hoping you could participate. And now I wonder what I said...

Charles, it will be fun!

SugarScribes said...

Oh, this will be fun. I grew up with nine brothers & sisters back before internet and the techno Iphone, Ipod, Ipad craze so I am game.

Carol Kilgore said...

I think you must spend way more time blogging than I do.

Happy Friday!

Melissa Bradley said...

Mind Games and Drinking Games, eh? LOL I can't wait for this next blogfest. I'm having a screaming good time doing the Challenge. :)

damyantiwrites said...

Wow, another blogfest ? :D

Woo-hoo! Count me in! You will tell me what to do right? I tend to be directionally challenged.

Ellie said...

I was just thinking my blogfest calendar was looking a little light. Count me in!

Mary Aalgaard said...

How could I resist a game blog challenge with a blog name like Play off the Page. Play on, Alex!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Melissa, I came up with one and my wife the other!

Dafeenah, I won't let you go astray.

Annah, you know now!

Nancy, it's not until June - and it's easy!

Pat Tillett said...

Oh yeah! This sounds like a good one!

Nicki Elson said...

I'm game! ;)
Linky appears to have disappeared (wait...that doesn't make sense) but when I can see it again I'll be on there.

Gail said...

I believe you enjoy making people put their thinking caps on...I look forward to seeing all the answers.

M Pax said...

I'll probably still be trying to get thru the AtoZ blogs in June :D, but I'm in.

Lynda R Young said...

Yay! Great idea. Glad it's in June too. I might have recovered from the A-Z Challenge by then ;)

Holly Ruggiero said...

It sounds great, but I can't put my name on there until after May 1st. LOL

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Robyn,I do love my sleep now! And almost over.

Nicki, check back - it does that.

MPax, me too!

Holly, whenever you're ready.

Siv Maria said...

~Rasz~ said...

Congratulations Alex on 2nd!!! that's awesome!

As for the blogfest...I'm with Li, have no clue how it's gonna work so if you'll help me along, count me in!

The A-Z Challenge has been a blast, even though it was a little...challenging....

Chuck said...

Oh yeah, I'm all in for that blog fest! Congrats on the second place finish. The A-Z challenge was a blast...looking forward to next year already.

Ella said...

The challenge sounds fun; I probably will sign up. I am just finding this last week taxing. Hubby took leave(vacation)and I haven't been home to participate, as much as I would have liked. Congrats on 2nd place! Way to go Captain~

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Rasa, I'll walk younthrough it.

Ella, time with your husband is more important.

Ocean Girl said...

I am enjoying Scrabble now thanks to the A-Z Challenge.

Alex, I think the DISQUS problem has gone away, Arlee and Charles could leave comments. I hope DISQUS have resolve it for good.

Empty Nest Insider said...

Congrats on your 2nd place win which is very well deserved! The Blogfest sounds like a fun idea, but my nest will be full then, so I can't make any plans. Thanks for all the work you put into the A-Z Challenge! I really enjoyed it! Julie

Karen Peterson said...

Sounds like a lot of fun! Count me in!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Ocean Girl, sorry I couldn't comment before!

Milo James Fowler said...

I learned a lot through this experience (mainly: I'm not made for daily blogging!) and met some very cool fellow writers in the process.

Francine Howarth said...

Hi,

Hee hee, you may so regret this when numbers reach 1000. ;)

Arlee Bird said...

Okay that's far enough away and easy enough to do. I'm signed up. I'm gonna keep it simple.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Milo, you did awesome, man!

Francine, if this fest hits 1000, I'll be floored!

Lee, that was my plan.

Simon Kewin said...

Sounds cool! Count me in.

Jon Mac said...

Sounds great! I'll give it a try :)

Loralie Hall said...

Sounds like a blast - I'm totally in ^_^

Cheryl said...

Hey there well I'm still a relatively new blogger so I have no real idea what the go is. I assume I write a post on the topic on the 6th and add the linky code in then and then go visit others on the list to see what they are about. Let me know if there's more. I'll also try to grab the button to add to my blog. Came here via L'Aussie! Thanks for putting this on sounds like fun.

Kimi Zamuda said...

Sounds like tons of fun!

Bryce Daniels said...

Okay, count me in. Sounds like fun, just hoping this techno-challenged newbie can figure it out. Hope I don't "break any chains" or anything. Don't need any bad karma or anything. Ha! BTW, love the War Games quote.

Eve said...

Okay, this is my first time actually, officially entering something..so now I just have to list 3 games I like on my blog? That's it? Really? hmmmm...okay, I can do that!

Leovi said...

Alex, thanks for your visit now I remembered the BLOGFEST! I just published a post with my game a little more and I forget. Greetings and thank you very much.
