Mining Money Off Minecraft

Minecraft is a sandbox game that has seen many creative and adaptive uses for both recreational and commercial uses. As a result, Minecraft server hosting has become popular. However, it costs quite a bit to run and maintain your own servers. Here are six ways to raise money from being a host for those of you who are finding it difficult to maintain your server.

Ads on your website

If your Minecraft server has its own popular website then installing advertisements on the website would be a start. Several companies can help place advertisements on your website but none of them are as competent at providing targeted advertisements as AdSense. It is very easy to set up on your website and owing to its popularity among advertisers the earnings got out of it is better than any of AdSense’s competitors.

Why GTA 5 Is The Perfect Birthday Gift

By now you’ve probably heard the media storm surrounding the release of video game Grand Theft Auto 5. You might not be a gamer, and you might not get why so many teens and fully fledged grown-ups are spending hours a day sitting starring at the TV, killing people or stealing cars or something. It sounds quite horrific. But you don’t need to get it – what you do need to do is buy your friend or relative the game for their Birthday if they haven’t already bought it!

So what’s so special about GTA 5?

If you haven’t engaged with video games since the days of pong or Pac-Man, you probably don’t realise just how advanced these mini worlds in the TV have become. Grand Theft Auto isn’t so much a game, as it is a virtual reality. The kind once only portrayed in Sci-Fi movies.

Yes it’s violent, but it is also an artistic masterpiece and a cutting edge piece of technology. Graphically it’s about as close to real life as you can get. Detail wise, it’s simply breathtaking.

Rockstar have established a ground-breaking franchise with Grand Theft Auto, which all started over 10 years ago. The games are recognised in

An Introduction to Blizzard’s Hearthstone

“Deceptively Simple. Insanely Fun” – that’s how Blizzard describes its new game. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a collectible card game with settings and characters based on the ever-popular World of Warcraft game. While the game was released in March 2014, the extended beta-testing period made sure the game was highly anticipated by Blizzard fans worldwide. Nowadays, the game can be downloaded and played for free at Battle.Net and is available in PC, Mac, and iPad. Personally, I found the game challenging and mentally stimulating as it requires me to think ahead and anticipate the opponent’s move. You will understand what I mean when you start playing the game and you consider its objective, hero classes, game cards, and game play.

Objective of the Game

Unlike in WoW where you can play with multiple players at a time, Hearthstone is a head-to-head, turn-based strategy game. Each player begins with 30 health and with a deck composed of 30 cards. The objective of the game is simple: drain the opponent’s health to zero before the opponent drains yours. To do this, you will need to choose your hero class, and with each class comes unique hero power, minions, and spells. For me,

Earning Gold in Blizzard’s Hearthstone Game

The game Hearthstone relies on the in-game resource of gold for players to participate in arena runs and buy card packs-and for beginners, the first way one earns that is completing the basic quests, such as beating all of the AI heroes, which will then unlock the expert AI for your defeat and win more gold. Finishing these tasks will yield you 100 gold per task completed, so hold on to that for the next modes of increasing your gold supply.

There are two primary ways to earn gold in Hearthstone-arena runs and quests. An arena run is trickier, because you’ll be shelling out an extra 50 gold in order to get a chance at higher rewards, such as additional dust for crafting cards, or for individual card packs. However, one will eventually be able to recoup the extra payout overtime by accumulating arena victories, so be patient, develop your deck and choose arena runs over trading your precious 100 gold for that single card pack.

The second way, and probably the one that yields the biggest returns, is through pursuing daily quests and one-time quests. Once a beginning player finishes the two special quests The Duelist and First Blood, daily

5 Ways to Be a Better Hearthstone Player

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a free to play card game developed by Blizzard that has taken over the lives of millions of people. If you have played a game of Magic: The Gathering, you will not have a problem knowing the rules but if not, the game itself is not too complicated to learn from scratch. Now as you try to make your way through the world rankings, here are five ways to be a better Heartstone player:

Practice is Preparation

Have you ever heard of the adage “Failing to prepare is preparing to fail”? This little nugget of wisdom is crucial if you want to get close to being a good player in Hearthstone. Before proceeding to either the Play mode or Arena mode, it is best if you complete the Practice mode first. Completing the tutorial gives you several benefits. First, it unlocks all the classes that you can play in the game. Second, it gives you the necessary experience in order to navigate through your deck effectively and play cards with correct timing. Most importantly, completing tutorials gives you, at the basic level, a sense of anticipation of what the opponent might play. An insight of the

Tips For Playing Pyramid Solitaire

Out of all the card games in the world, there can’t possibly be any that come close to the popularity of solitaire. It has been played by computer users for decades and its popularity is still huge. Pyramid solitaire is however one of the more challenging versions of the game.

The goal of all versions of solitaire has one goal in common: remove everything from the table. The way in which this is achieved differs from one variety to another. Most are however based on making pairs of similar cards or putting together a numerical sequence of cards. Things get a lot more interesting with pyramid solitaire as maths is also thrown into the equation.

Although the concept of the game is fairly easy to grasp, you can very easily paint yourself into a corner and your progress can grind to a halt. Before we get onto the tips, let’s quickly look at how the game is played.

As mentioned before the goal for pyramid solitaire is the same as any type of solitaire in that you should try and remove all of the cards. In a game of pyramid solitaire the cards are stacked in a pyramid formation. Depending on the

Video Games and Swearing

Parents worry about their children hearing swear words due to the way it may affect them. Children are increasingly exposed to aggressive situations due to the proliferation of various types of media, while video games are available on more platforms. Video games in particular provide opportunities for violent confrontations. Many video games contain swear words that can be absorbed into a young psyche. The fear of the effect it can have on the behavior of a young person can be unsettling for parents. Verbal aggression is associated with fighting, but the extent of its influence is not known. Behavioral changes as a result of such languages are unwanted.

Parents don’t know how to prevent behavioral problems in their kids when they accidentally hear swearing. Although rude words accompany violence, they may not necessarily provoke others to respond with brutality. Swearing as such is considered to be an expression of frustration that may also lead to the elevation of stress levels. It has both cathartic effect through tension release, but also various elements of retaliation as well as insult. Even though swearing is associated with cruelty, it rarely leads to violence, as the expression of anger can unburden an individual. According
