Not All Games are Canceled

Friday, March 20, 2020

The family’s all together, perhaps a little more than usual. We’re surviving “social distancing” and we’re discovering new solutions or relearning old ones to stay connected. 

Your internet connection is the key source for gaming. With Kinetic Internet service, you can trust your connection will not be interrupted, no matter how many games you have going in the house.

Your teens and tweens may be playing video games online to stay connected to their friends. Maybe you’d like to join the fun too. Who will be the new Game Night Champion at your house?

Need help finding games the whole family will enjoy? Nintendo’s Super Mario, a classic, is still considered to be one of the most popular family games or, if you need a good laugh, grab your phone, download Heads Up! and give it a try for yourself. If you need a little convincing, checkout how Kaley Cuoco & Ellen DeGeneres play the game!

Remember, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Google Earth and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt released three new Carmen Sandiego games sure to help everyone learn or get a refresher on capitals around the world, the locations of historic events and other geographical facts. Check out these ‘Where on Google Earth is Carmen Sandiego’ games for your next game night, The Crown Jewels Caper, The Tutankhamun's Mask Caper and The Keys to the Kremlin.

Here’s a list of games we think you might enjoy.

Most importantly, playing games together will give you a glimpse into what your children are playing, and how they’re playing. One study found the more parents and their children play games together, the closer they become.

Your internet connection is critical. Many of today’s video games are multiplayer and VoIP-enabled so that players talk with teammates over IP while tapping, zapping and zipping away.

At Kinetic by Windstream, we’ve been building the network to fit your family game night needs for years. To learn more about Kinetic Internet, visit Windstream.com.
