Do your kids play plants vs zombies, a new game by PopCap?
« on: January 25, 2011, 02:35:29 PM »
In working with the little cub scouts this week, one of the second graders told me he got the game "plants vs zombies" for Christmas.  I looked it up:  http://www.popcap.com/extras/pvz/?

What better way to get kids excited about prepping than to let them kill zombies in their gardens using plants.  Do any of your kids play this?  Have you ever heard of it before?  We limit the kids' gaming so much, this one was news to me, but I think I'll let them download it.

No, my kids don't play it... my wife does! :o There is even a little figure of a zombie with a traffic cone on its head sitting on the counter near the pc.

Can't say much more then that, as I've not played it.

Plants vs. Zombies is pretty fun and a great mix between a gross idea with a sugary coating. I watched my niece play it for a while when she was in her video game phase.

I guess you could incorporate it into prepper eduction of sorts as you have to think ahead, plan and prepare and it includes gardening so that's a bonus.  ;D

Ponder the idea whilst you watch, "There's a Zombie on Your Lawn." It was a popular song made by Popcap after the game debuted.

When I am not too busy playing Angry Birds, Plants vs Zombies is a great time waster.  I turned my nieces on to it.

Yea, the kids. I bought it for every device I have just to make sure they would be able to play it at any hour of any day when at home or work...eerrr I mean school.
