LazerXtreme Laser Tag at Market Market

Posted on

How many of you are familiar with laser tag? I know about this game and mostly know it from How I Met Your Mother where Barney is a laser tag fiend so I was excited to receive an invite to a mommy blogger laser tag party. When I told the kids about it they were really excited to try it. Especially Bastian who loves HIMYM.

Despite the rains we trooped on over to LazerXtreme at Market Market to experience laser tag. LazerXtreme is at the 4th floor and offers the best laser tag experience by using state-of-the-art equipment and world-class arenas.

Upon entering there’s a waiting area and tables and chairs because they also offer food at the Galaxy Snack Bar to energize you for your play time which you’ll definitely need. They offer pastas, pizza, sandwiches and light snacks and even have desserts.

We were pretty pumped for the first round. I’m not an active person so I knew this was going to be a tiring event even if it was only for 15 minutes. This is the pre-game room where you get your vests and guns from and a short video is played for you about the rules and regulations and scoring.

It’s a “hide and seek” arena with a maze of ramps, passages and secret chambers complete with glow-in-the-dark imagery, lights-in-motion, and music.

The rules state that there is no running, no climbing, no lying or crawling on the floor, no covering of opponents’ pack sensors, no physical contact, and no rude language. The no running part is a bit tough to follow especially for the kids. There is a need to be careful though as there are ramps and sharp corners. It’s dark in there and can be quite confusing at least for an inactive adult like me.

LazerXtreme uses NexusPRO Laser Packs from Australia which is equipped with LEDs attached to a light weight vest and phasor. The NexusPRO Laser Pack emits 8 different colors and beams which you get to choose. Ideally there are at least 2 to a team but you can have up to 5.

These 3 were psyched to try it! After the game Bastian was sweating profusely and excited to see his scoring, Kianna was excited for the next game and Jael was asking for the next round.

Me? After the first round I took a break from the next one. It was tiring but mostly because I was chasing after the little one. I decided to chat with the other mommy bloggers instead. It was really fun though and as we joked good exercise for us moms.

After playing you of course, gotta eat! We were treated to lunch at Bon Chon and to be honest it was my first time to dine there. I know there’s such a hype about it but I guess we just never got around to eating there as a family.

Bon Chon (meaning “hometown”), an American-Korean fusion serves a very unique chicken offering your choice of soy garlic, spicy, honey citrus or their newest crunchy garlic. I enjoyed the crispy and tasty chicken. Each chicken piece is individually hand-painted with their special glaze.

They also have Ko Yo in Blueberry and Mango. Surprisingly, I liked their yogurt. I’m not a yogurt fan but this was good.

League of Legends: Summoner School

Posted on


Summoner SchoolVideo games are normally not my cup of tea but my son has taken an interest in a game called League of Legends. In several instances he has surprised me with knowledge that I wouldn’t have thought he’d known yet and when I asked where he learned it, he would say “League of Legends, see mom? I learn from playing.”

I was given an opportunity to review Summoner School a comprehensive training course for LOL (popular reference to the game) players. It was a great chance to include my son in doing a review while he also gets a chance to enjoy learning more about his favorite game.

I could go into it more but I think my son has written it perfectly and will only be understood by fellow LOL players. Here are his thoughts on the Summoner school course and what he picked up from it.

“When  my Mom found out about Summoner School, she told me about it and enrolled me so I could use it. I was level 30 at the time and I was having a hard time in Ranked Games.

 

I won my first time as Ezreal but after that game, all my games were really bad and I lost 5 times in a row.  I read through everything in the In-Game part. I really learned a lot, everything was really organized, and got me into playing Support. I bought Blitzcrank and tried him for the first time in a Ranked Game and I never expected it to be that fun playing Support . I received endless praise from the team because of all the made grabs I executed.

From that moment on, I played  support more often. I really liked Summoner School so I kept on reading about  Team Game. The Team Game Part of Summoner School was the most helpful part in my opinion because of all the stuff that you should you do when a team fight is happening, like when to split push, and who to focus on in a team fight. Post Game also helped because this teaches you how to communicate to your team in a good way, what to do when you have a bad game, or when you’re doing great but the other lanes are having trouble.

This guide would help someone who is around level 20 or even Diamond players might get some useful stuff from it. Summoner School is one of the reasons why I’m in Gold 3 right now. I’m thankful for the chance to learn all this stuff. Thank You!” – Sebastian

Aside from my son learning new words from this game he has also developed a liking for writing. He has a blog, Marvelous Adventures of a Dude where he talks about League of Legends among other things.

As much as I would want for my children to use their time for things I believe are more productive, I’ve realized that instead of fighting it, I can encourage them to learn from the games they play. As a homeschooling mom, we try and find a learning experience in everything.
