Creating the ultimate man cave gambling room

Are you are passionate about playing online casino games and already spend lots of your free time visiting land-based ones? The logical next step could be to consider creating a gambling room in your own home, assuming you have a free room that you can use for this. If you do (or you’ve managed to persuade whoever lives with you that you do) then the first step to creating your ultimate gambling room will be to work out what games you want to feature in it and how much you can fit in.

Certainly a poker table is a feature of the majority of gambling rooms. This is because poker is one of the most popular casino games and it is also something that you can spend an evening playing with friends. Indeed modern gambling rooms sometimes have computers in them. This is so that people can play games like poker at an online casino as well, although this is obviously not essential. You can also include other casino features like a roulette table or a slot machine, although a lot will depend on the size of the room. If you can fit in a slot machine it makes sense to have one, as that way you can still use the gambling room at times when you do not have any visitors.

Although you may think of gambling rooms as solely being places to play casino games, they’re not. Many of them also have other features including: snooker, pool or ping pong tables. Don’t forget, you can still bet on these games with friends to add to the excitement. But unless you have a very big room, you will probably be limited to one of these tables at most. It is important to ensure that you leave enough room for yourself and guests to be able to use the room comfortably. With this in mind, you might want to consider devoting a small amount of space to either a little microwave or fridge so you can provide food and drinks.

The Top 5 Funniest Bingo Calls and Where they Come From

While a lot of players play bingo to win cash prizes, the main point of the game is to have fun. The social element of the game allows players to interact and have a laugh with others. Having fun is the most important thing so for something a little different, we thought we would look at some of the funny bingo calls that players encounter when they play at their local bingo halls or favourite bingo sites.

Anyone who has ever played a game online or in a traditional bingo hall in the UK will have heard the announcer follow up the numbers with fun nicknames.

These rhymes are known as bingo calls and they have evolved over time with regards to the game of online bingo. Some are more popular than others and some are funnier than others too, so here are our top 5 funniest bingo calls!

  1. Turn the Screw – A very British bingo call which can also be “tickety boo” which in English slang means “good” or “in order”. A lot of popular bingo calls are based on rhymes and this is particularly evident in the UK with lots of bingo calls based on popular sayings and expressions. In terms of bingo, “Turn the Screw” is a funny British bingo call for the number 62.
  2. Legs – Some bingo calls are based on the shape of the number itself with more than 50 well-known calls based on the shapes of the numbers themselves. Legs is a simple and amusing way to remember the number 11. The two ones look like a pair of legs and historically, some of the more boisterous patrons in the bingo hall would wolf whistle at this number. A bit silly and immature but you can see why people find the legs call to be funny.
  3. Gandhi’s Breakfast – Another one that will make you laugh just by speaking it out aloud. Gandhi’s Breakfast describes the number 80. This is because the two digits are said to resemble what it would look like if Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi sat cross-legged and ate from a plate straight in front of him. You can’t say that bingo players are not imaginative when it comes to creating funny bingo calls!
  4. Two Fat Ladies – Experienced bingo players may already be able to visualise the number that the Two Fat Ladies symbolise. This is another number based on how the digits appear next to each other and quite simply, the Two Fat Ladies represent the number 88. The two 8s are said to represent to curvy ladies sitting next to each other. This is one of the most popular and well-known bingo calls of all.
  5. Posh & Becks – Another pop culture reference to the famous power couple. A stick thin Posh Spice is represented by the number 1. David Beckham, on the other hand, was famous for wearing the number 7 jersey. When you combine the two you get the bingo call of 17. It makes sense now doesn’t it?

These are some of the common calls you’ll hear in a hall or see online. There are so many more however, just have a few games and you’ll be bound to encounter them.

A Resurgence of Zombies: Why they are hugely Popular again

There are many reasons why zombies are so popular these days in books, TV, movies and computer games. One of the more commonly held beliefs is the fact that there are very few enemies for westerners to feel comfortable dispatching these days. Violence sells in popular media because it is a fun fantasy experience, but violence needs people, or things, to be aimed towards. Movies, books, and computer games have done very well when they have aimed violence at non-human targets. This is because even though the violence is not real, some people feel that they cannot make a connection with violence against humans. However, violence against robots such as in the Matrix or the Terminator movies, or violence against Aliens such as in the Independence Day and Aliens movies, is a lot more palatable for a broader audience.

Psychologically, even horrific violence is acceptable if it is in self-defense

Zombies are of a similar ilk to demons, and are therefore fair game for killing. If you remove ethics from the situation, the person playing the computer game, watching the movie or reading the book is able to enjoy the violence, without any ethical or moral restrictions around its use. This is heightened by the fact that if the protagonist does not inflict violence upon the zombies, the zombies will kill them. This brings an element of self-defense into the equation.

Zombies are no longer scary, but a relentless killing entity is

Zombies are so over-used in popular culture that they are no longer scary. The fact that they congregate in hoards, that they cannot be scared, that they cannot experience mercy, and that their lust for flesh seems unstoppable, is enough to create an exciting dynamic, which is enough to carry a computer game, book or movie. The idea of an unstoppable force and malice has worked very well in previous usage. It brings about a feeling of helplessness that translates very well to the viewer/player. The reason that the first Terminator film was so scary was the fact that nothing seemed to be able to stop this relentless machine from hunting someone down. [Read more…]
