This week’s news is all about new games at Surfnetkids.
Nobby’s preparing for his winter rest. You must help him collect enough nuts to get through the winter. Pick up all the nuts to open a portal to next level. After successfully completing 5 levels in a row you’re awarded a level password.
Start the ball Rollin’ by clicking with the mouse cursor in the game area or press SPACE.
Use the control keys to place blocks and to move around. Collect a key to open the door, and let Teddy go through the door to get to the next level.
See ya on the Net,

#3. Play Game Shows Online

Play Game Shows Online Printable (** for premium members only)
If you thought the closest you’d get to being a game show contestant was shouting at your television, I’ve got a treat for you. Now you can play your favorite television game shows from the comfort of your home computer. Have fun, but don’t hog that seat! Remember to give everyone in the family a chance.
Family Feud Online
“Name something dogs are afraid of.” Thirty-seven people out of a hundred answered “Thunder,” making it the number one response. I should have known this! Our dog Kia (now in doggie heaven) went completely ballistic over thunder. For some reason, however, the only thing that came to mind was the number three answer “Cats.” Kia loved cats, but my mind just went blank and it was the best I could come up with. You must be eighteen to register (so kids can only play with their parents) and some families might object to the casino ads that run between games.
“Odds & Ends” for $300. The answer is “To speak this language, transpose the first consonant of each word to the end and add ‘ay’.” And the question is “What is Pig Latin?” In addition to the free game (that does not require registration) you can download a sixty-minute free trial of Jeopardy Deluxe or buy a version for your mobile phone. There is also a link to the main official Jeopardy site, where you can learn about being a contestant, watch Clue Crew video clips, and find out about local Jeopardy Brain Bus events.
This is the British version of the game, so you will be playing in pound sterling, not dollars. Since the winnings are all virtual anyway, I can’t see that it matters much. “Your aim is to answer enough questions correctly to reach your one thousand pound target within the time limit. The fastest way is to create a chain of nine correct answers. Get your question wrong and you break the chain, and lose all the money in that chain.”

#5. Note from a JokesByKids Reader
Keep the jokes going and keep making hearts and souls fill with joy. Your jokes have changed me because I do home school and I don’t get to hang out with friends that much. Now I know some new jokes from other kids just like me. I will spread the word about http://www.JokesByKids.com. I love your website so much that I even posted some of my jokes myself which will probably help this site.
Please do your best to keep this website running because on top of me there are a whole lot of people that look up to this website to brighten their day. See, not only do I do home school, but I am in a wheelchair and I am sitting here with my babysitter right now and even she laughed at your jokes. One of the things I like about this website is you can tell that the person who created this website has a big sense of humor and you can also tell that other people who post their jokes on this website have a big sense of humor, too.
P.S. Remember, keep the jokes coming and keep souls and hearts brightened and filled with joy.
