Game Mechanics is back again this week with some fun new personalized items. First off, they are offering three items you can post your text on: a Whiteboard, a Doormat, and a 2-sided Large Sign. In addition, they are releasing a Magical Leaf Rug. When you or your friends walk on this rug, the leaves part creating an open path to walk on the grass. It really is magic. And lastly, this week they are offering up a Start/Finish Gate. You set up the gate and tell it you want it to track your time. When you go through the gate, the timer starts. And it does not stop until you go through it again. This is great for those people who have set up a space as a track. You can finally see who is the fastest going through it. Plus, it works with locomotions for all those who have been begging to see which are the fastest. As you can see, Game Mechanics is definitely bringing the fun.
All these mall updates are getting old. I find myself rarely in home nowadays other than a few minutes each day since this year has been disasterous in terms of new public spaces and games. We have not gotten many at all. Keep waiting on the updates to get better but they seem to get worse. Maybe next week will bring something exciting rather than mall updates.
