Old but Good: Guest Rooms!

098

The holidays are the time where guests invade your home. Get some inspiration both for your game and perhaps even for your real life guest room?

Old but Good: Baby’s First Christmas

Children's First Christmas

For me Christmas is all about the children. In Denmark we often say “Julen er børnenes fest”, which literally translates to “Christmas is the children’s party” – so when I found this old article in issue 14 I had to share it with you guys!

11-03-15_9-53-58nbspPM_zpspcr1avd3

Time Travel: … back in time
The machines made the same whirring sound that it had previously and all of a sudden the world changed before Dr. Tempus and Sindy’s eyes. […]
