    Same here, @Penny88! It doesn't help that LoL is a MOBA so you can't even pause it if you have to do something else!

    Bummer, it was similar for us but we just dragged DS along! We only had to go from Sydney though so much easier than Perth. DS slept through most of the chaos, as shown

    I had planned to go in cosplay as Annie from League of Legends with DS dressed up as Tibbers but it was all too hard really!

    Hey here's a question for the gamer mums, does your other half also play? What do you do when a game comes out that you both want to play?
    We've been lucky so far that all the games released in the post-baby age that we've both been into have had co-op/vs modes so we can play together. But there should be a new Zelda next year that we'll both want to play as soon as it comes out, it's going to be impossible without spoiling it for the other! (Really I should say, it'll be impossible for me to ever get a chance to play it without DP spoiling it, since he still seems to have a remarkable amount of free time…)
    Any tips from families who have gone through this?

    My partner and i are mostly pc gamers on steam so we never use each others pc's. We tease each other with screen shots sometimes if we are playing the same game like ramming a cargo liner into the opera house in ship simulator extreme. We tend to play different games mostly though. Our guilty pleasure is cuddling up and doing find the hidden object games in bed together. It is like watching a bad soap.
