Guide To Spartacus: The Facebook Game

SpartacusIn January, Facebook launched a new game called Spartacus.  As the name would suggest, it’s an arena game of gladiatorial combat, based on the Starz cable television series, starring Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Woman).  The game is based on beating the crap out of other gladiators as you build up your House.  At first, I was a bit skeptical about a game filled with building men as fighting machines, but I love anything Roman and wasn’t disappointed. The game is pretty fun. If you are interested in joining my group of friends on Facebook, feel free to give me a request.  You can find the game at: http://www.facebook.com/spartacusgame

I Am Not Spartacus

The Real SpartacusI have been enjoying a series on the STARZ premium channel called “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”.  It is a depiction of the Roman Republic and gladiatorial combat.  Spartacus is one of the main characters of the show, but everything about it is just a guess.  You see, no one knows much about the real Spartacus.  If you think you know Spartacus, it is most likely from the Kirk Douglas movie or this new series.  You see, Spartacus was a rebel and the Romans didn’t like promoting problems from within its borders.  The series is an interesting look at daily Roman life, though, and you can catch a glimpse at exactly how tough those times were.  Enjoy!

Five Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Monopoly

Monopoly factsThe game of Monopoly is a board game named after the economic concept of monopoly, the domination of a market by a single entity.  Monopoly is a redesign of an earlier game “The Landlord’s Game”, first published in 1903 by the Quaker and political activist Elizabeth Magie. The purpose of that game was to teach people how monopolies end up bankrupting the many and giving extraordinary wealth to one or few individuals.  Since the game was created, more than one billion people have played it. In 1933, a man by the name of Charles Darrow developed the game as we know it today with actual spaces from Atlantic City, New Jersey.  In 1935, Parker Brothers bought the rights from Darrow and started manufacturing a slightly updated version.  In the same year, John Waddington bought the UK rights to the game and made a version based on the streets of London.  It was later used by British POWs during World War 2 with items included that could be used in escaping the prison camps.  The game has a rich history and here are five things you probably don’t know about it.
