I love this game! It’s a tablet / phone game and so addictive! If you’d like to download it, search for “Airport Terminal” – it’s by a company called Meriden. Not to be confused with many other games of a similar name.

You’re a people manager. Your job is to get everyone through the various parts of the airport without passengers getting angry. You have lots of different types of passenger (old people = angry, celebrities = need to be served quickly, students = chilled etc) who have specific requirements (check in 1st class > caf’é > restroom > gift shop etc).
There are two parts to each level: firstly, check in. Once everyone is through, you go to security. Each different part of the airport has a problem to solve, a mini game. You must complete the mini game in order for the passenger to progress through the airport. They’re not hard, but managing it becomes your headache. Of course, you need to get everyone through before take-off!
Each level grants you cash which you can use to speed up the process, complete the mini game automatically or increase happiness rates.
- Free off the app store
- No need for social network links to progress
- Challenging to a degree (you need to be good at organising) but not difficult
- Cute little graphics
- Various levels of progression and challenge – beating times, mini games, bonus levels etc
- Easy to understand
- No gating of any kind – you can keep trying the levels til you progress. YAY.
- Uses a lot of battery
It’s a really good little game and I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys the fulfilling orders type of game. Let us know what you think if you download it!
I know the pic isn’t the clearest but… a smoking fish? My little level 7 Panda was shocked and appalled!
Ok, I know it’s only incense however, I was INCENSED. Excuse the pun ^^
After nearly a year of perseverance, I finally hit my goal of 60 exalted reputations!
I have been rocking ‘The Beloved’ title ever since!
It’s a massive grind for only 10 points, but you do get lots of pretty mounts and tabards AND there’s something inside me that feels happy to see this:
I’ve decided to keep going and see how many I can get. I have all the hard ones left now: Hydraxion Warlords (getting a bit sick of Molton Core!!), Booty Bay, Frenzyheart (I can’t be bothered after working so hard for the Oracles!) etc etc. I don’t feel a mad rush, but it’ll be nice to see if I can get a couple more done before WoD.
Do you guys like rep grinding?
This week, I have been working towards my 59th rep, and after a couple of days of old-school grinding, I had it.
That rep is Kurenei, with the Ogres of Nagrand.
I’m going to write a tiny post about how I went about gaining that rep. There might be more efficient ways to farm it, but this suited my current on/off mood.
Location (unscientifically tested!)
1. Northwind Cleft
- 31 ogres to kill per lap
- takes about 2mins per lap
- 6-8 beads gained (including respawns on the way back)
- Start outside, kill and loot all. In cave, turn right until you can’t. Turn 180 then follow same proceedure. Lots of ores in this cave too.
- Pros: nice circular route, fast respawning ogres, good mining nodes
- Cons: lots of levellers and popular with other rep grinders as lots of websites suggest this site
Start here, enter cave and keeeeel.
2. Laughing Skull Ruins (near ring of blood)
- 29-32 ogres to kill per lap
- takes about 2mins per lap
- 10-12 beads gained (including any respawns en route)
- Start at one end and work your way across vertically following the mini village layout
- Pros: more beads, out in the open (I hate caves!)
- Cons: heavily contested by levellers and others in the area
- Make sure you do all the relevant quests, this should take you to almost revered
- You get 11 rep per ogre plus the Warbeads you can hand in at Telaa. I handed the beads in every 100 stack, but others prefer to save those towards Consortium rep and just grind ogres. I personally find that a bit soul destroying, but each to their own.
To summarise – it’s a mean grind but you feel it goes quite quickly as you have quest items to hand in for instant reward. You pick up a LOT of netherweave cloth too – stacks of the stuff – so that’s a nice perk. Lots of competition for mobs though, so I always did it later at night.
Hope this helps!
So, we did it, we re-subscribed to Warcraft. We were both missing it and it seemed like a good time now I am on holiday for the summer.
It’s funny though, as soon as I logged in, I went afk for a bit, chatted for a bit, then flew around aimlessly for a bit. It was only after a couple of days after re-subbing that I decided I needed some goals. So, I picked up right where I left off – working for my 60 reps, grinding for the few mounts I need and working on any achievements that take my fancy. Mr B is busy working on more alts, and gearing more alts for pvp. Each to their own I suppose………………….
Things feel different this time though. Perhaps we have wised up a bit and got a better attitude, or perhaps it was a clean break which made us appreciate the game. Probably a mixture of the two, but this is definitely a question of balance. For us and our lifestyle, playing multiple hours a day and prioritising dailies/gear/guild over ‘real life’, and dare I say… each other?… wasn’t healthy. This time around, logging in for an hour, doing something fun and logging out to enjoy the rest of our day away from a screen feels much better.
Anyway, I have a post lined up in the next couple of days about what we’ve been upto in more detail, so ciao for now!
Who would have thought one little number would cause so much frustration???
It’s been a while since we did a tablet game review so, here it is!
We were chatting about this on twitter a couple of weeks ago so I thought I’d write up a short post about the game. Here are the pros and cons:
- Free from the app store
- No facebook or real money needed for progression
- Improves skills – it’s a strategy game
- Super simple to use, even older kids could play it
This little game is all about matching pairs of numbers by swiping up or down, which eventually add up to 2048. For example: match two 2’s, which makes 4. Match two 4’s which make 8. Match two 8’s which make 16 etc. The catch is, every time you move a number, a new one is created so you need to keep matching. If all the squares in the grind fill up, you loose.
My highest score is about 7000 points, which equates to making the number 1,024. I haven’t yet completed the game.
It’s coming to the end of the school term so I am madly busy and Mr B has been unwell. Between us, we only turned the computer on for the first time all week on Thursday for an hour (very unlike us!), which means we don’t have much to write about this week at all.
What we can tell you though, is that we are trying out a new mod pack for Minecraft called Hexxit which we have been playing in Survival with two friends. I was going to do a short review, but as I sat down, the server crashed and we’ve been unable to get it going again. I’ll write one up in the next couple of weeks instead.
So far so good, though. Loads of items and new mobs to play with. We especially like the giraffes and elephants! It’s apparently aimed at adventure, and there are certainly many dungeons and caves with lots of cool loot. I know the boys have been enjoying those, whereas us girls have been building and primping more than anything else.
In other news, I’ve been knitting lots of things in the evenings where I would usually play WoW. I’ll put some photos up at the bottom (if you know of a good Warcraft pattern, hit me up!). We are both missing Warcraft, but every time we think about resubbing, we wonder exactly what we would do and always come to the same conclusion: nothing. Come 6.0, we will be there with bells on!
George, he’s tiny, but very cute!
A little baby comforter. This was a practice for a gift I’m going to make :)
