Good Morning Gang and Happy Friday the 13th.  It's 32f/0c in this part of The Hollow this morning.  We've had a few snow showers but not enough to accumulate.
There's a squeal over at The Pond this morning as another HOG comes out of the pen.  Undiscovered World-The Incan Sun came out today, a day after RA released it yesterday.
Over at GameHouse the free game today is Monster Mash.  It's classified as a sims.  The graphics and game play remind me of a cross between Fairy Godmother Tycoon and a game that came out years ago called Troll.
It lacked the originality of both and I didn't bother finishing the demo.
Here in The Hollow we have Gemsweeper.  This was a nice surprise, I almost didn't bother with it because it's listed as a Match 3.  Why they classified it as that I don't know because you don't have to Match 3 in order to get rid of the tiles on the board.  I really enjoyed it and the hour demo went by quickly. 
My only concern is how long it would take to finish the game.  I made it through about 30 of levels in the hour demo.  I'm not sure how many actual levels there are in the Story mode but the description states it has 225 different puzzles.  It is a refreshing twist and requires a different type of thought process.    I may get it but probably not right away.

I did burn a credit on Totem Tribe last night.  I'm on the 4th or 5th island and I'm starting to get the hang of it.  I'm just getting tired of seeing all of the tiny graves and crosses.
I probably won't be playing much today, too many other things I need to get caught up on besides the kids have the day off of school. 
What's going on in your part of The Hollow today? 
As always, whatever part of The Hollow you're in, I hope you have a great one.

Congrats Suzy on the new Grandson!!!  We know what you'll be doing today.
