Slightly OT: Games with stories

Though I have been lucky enough to get a number of books that I hope I'll review soon, I have also spent my time, whenever I've been able to, playing a number of games on my phone.

 

Two of them have what you might call a story (actually, a few more do, but they don't really work as actual stories anyway).

 

One of my favorites among them, right now, are Lily's Garden. You might call it a 'feel-good' story. It's about Lily who's worked as an accountant for nearly ten years, has just left her boyfriend, who wasn't good for her and returned home to her aunt's estate, where she herself grew up. The aunt has died and Lily's inherited everything. At least if she fixes the place up, according to the lawyer. There are many surprises and twists ahead.

 

I'm not really into games, but I waste time on them anyway. :) And this one is definitely one of my favorites.

 

It's free and the graphics are good, so it's quite a nice game to play when you can't read.

 

My other favorite is Riddleside. It's a bit like the X files, Fringe etc. This is free too, the graphics are great and the story is really thrilling. I keep wanting to return to it whenever the lives have regenerated.  Remember the first episode of the X files? Mulder and Scully have gone to the Pacific west to investigate a number of odd incidents. Riddleside is a lot like that place, I think. And mysteries abound.

Uncovering the History of Cricket

This is the season of IPL cricket matches. And we know that you are engrossed both in your TV sets and mobile. While watching the cricket matches, you are also playing ipl fantasy leagues and sharing your cricket knowledge.

We know that many of you are aware of the history of cricket. However, many of you aren’t. So we have brought to you a short history of the cricket sports, knowing which will make your online fantasy cricket match more interesting to play.

The first mention

The first exact mention of “Creckett as it used to be called” was in 1598. Mentioned at a Royal Grammar School, in Guilford. This is the earliest recording of the sport.

Another recorded example of the sport was back in 1624 when a player called Jasper Vinall died. He was playing the sport during the local Parish matches in Sussex. Jasper was hit in the head by the Batsman Edward Tye as Edward tried to hit the ball for a second time to prevent him from being caught out. In 1774 a law was introduced to stop the batsman from being able to hit the ball twice.

Further into the 18th century there were more laws brought in like the LBW – Leg before wicket and 3 stumped wickets.

Early 19th century

The 19th century brought in over arm bowling. Towards the end of the 19th Century cricket was well known throughout North America, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and India.

Cricket really took off in 1963 when counties in England introduced the Limited Over’s Rule. This then led on to stage the First Limited over’s cricket world cup in 1975.

Cricket bats have really transformed over time as well, the original shape resembled a hockey stick which was very thin and have a slight curve at the end. The modern day cricket bat is made out of Kashmir or English White Willow; the best quality would be the English Willow. In the manufacturing process, the bat gets treated with raw Linseed oil this helps protect the bat from weathering. White Willow is used in the making of cricket bats because it is very tough and shock resistant; the wood will not splinter either when struck at high speed for example by a cricket ball. White willow is also very lightweight. This new bat design which comes with a spring design where the cane handle meets the blade was invented by Charles Richardson back in the 1880’s.

The blade itself, is flat at the front with the back of the blade being pointed, this helps make the bat lighter, making it easier to manoeuvre but, still giving strength at the middle of the bat, where the ball will be strike.

Happy reading the post, watching cricket and playing fantasy cricket!
