Okay, so we know that Quail Bell(e)s are more likely to turn the page of a book than, well, do almost anything else. But admit it—sometimes you feel a little...competitive. Maybe you need to placate that competitive spirit with a good ol'-fashioned game of Monopoly. But last we checked, Monopoly wasn't exactly mobile. So for those days when you need to take it all out on something and there's not a board game in sight, go the electronic route.
Last fall, The Quail Bell Crew released its first game app, Quail Bell Tea Party. (It's temporarily down on the iTunes store, but we promise to have it up again soon.) Quail Bell Tea Party is modeled off of Fruit Ninja. Of course, it has its own Quail Bell spin to it. Your goal is to catch—or not catch—whatever comes flying toward your tea cup. Might a lemon go with your tea? Why, yes! Might an old boot? Probably not. Catch the wrong thing and you might find yourself face to face with Death. It's not all giggles in Quail Bell Landia.
Should you need some spice to go with your sugar, might we suggest CastleJackpot.com? It's the place for fans of online slots and casino games. Immerse yourself in the realm of pixies, Cleopatra, or the Golden Goddess. Talk about imaginary, nostalgic, and otherworldly! Go back in time, toy with magic, and win big—if Lady Fortuna is on your side. We'd like to add that you can get your Monopoly fix here, too.
Then of course there's Neopets.com. That's a site most of The Quail Bell Crew frequented in middle school. Since we're all about throw-backs, we can't resist reminding you about one of the few things from your middle school past that wasn't awkward. Pick a pet, any pet, give her a name, a whole life, whatever. Uni—the precious unicorn/pegasus 'beastette'—will always hold a special place in our thirteen-year-old hearts.
