Play a quiz, give a dollar or more to the charity of your choice, and maybe win an iPad! All it takes is a moment of an ordinary day, and you can make a wee contribution to efforts to repair the world. Best of all, it's a race: we're in it with Treehugger, Neatorama and others.
When you're done, e-mail us at Play@QuizPlayDay.org and tell us how much you donated and to what cause. Don't forget to send us your quiz score. By doing so, you'll be automatically entered into a sweepstakes drawing where you could win one of 10 sets of Wii games; and a chance to go on national TV, talk about why you picked the charity, and chat about the whole quiz play day experience.
Prizing is courtesy of our sponsors over at the Game Show Network, and a randomly selected grand-prize winner will also take home a brand new Apple iPad courtesy of Neatorama.com.
So what are you waiting for? Take the quiz, play for your charity by making a donation, and don't forget that e-mail. It's all on the honor system here, so don't let us down! QuizPlayDay.org'll be keeping track of how much each blog raises each day of the week, too. You can follow the money over here. At the end of the week, the blog (or "team") that raises the most will get serious bragging rights and another, secret prize, to give to one random winner who played for their "team." So don't forget to tell us which team you played for!
I have been loving Shieldwall, a strategy game where you and your Roman legion attempt to kick the crap out of other Roman legions! This game reminds me of a 3D Starcraft, with (thus far) a lot less complexity. You start with one base and attempt to take others from other CG teams! More bases […]
This cat sure appears to be having a fun time.
Matt Ruff is one of science fiction and fantasy's most consistently brilliant and innovative authors, whose recent work includes The Mirage (an incredible alternate history in which the Global War on Terror is kicked off when Christian crusaders from the blighted, tribal USA fly a plane into the United States of Arabia's Twin Towers in Dubai, giving the hawkish CIA chief Osama bin Laden the chance to launch the all-out war he's been champing for), and Lovecraft Country (an anti-racist reimagining of Cthulhu set in Jim Crow America where the real horror is white supremacy -- now being adapted for TV by Jordan Peele). In his new novel, 88 Names, Ruff adds to the canon of MMORPG heist novels (Charlie Stross's Rule 34, Neal Stephenson's Reamde, and my For the Win, to name three) with a unique take that he dubbed "Snow Crash meets The King and I."
In case you’re one of those computer shoppers who instinctively turns up their nose at the very mention of the word refurbished, here are a couple myths worth dispelling.

Electric bikes aren’t toys. And they aren’t a fad. In fact, more and more communities are starting to catch on that e-bikes are a lot more than an amusing gadget for the tech geek. Following a six-month study, Johnson County, Kansas, home to many Kansas City suburbs, became just the latest U.S. community to allow […]
