A Kingdom for Keflings on Xbox Live Arcade (and on-sale thru Jan.10)


This is a really clever game that has captured my family’s heart.  In fact, I think that it is the only game that I have ever purchased twice.  We have two Xbox 360’s and it allows my kids and I to collaborate across systems.  Kingdom for Keflings is one of the first Xbox Live games to use your personal Avatar in the game in a meaningful way.  There had been games that showed your picture, but in AK4K your avatar is a giant among the little Kefling people (literally). 

In this game, you (your avatar) are going to build a town with the help of the native Keflings.  There are lots of raw materials around in the form of never ending forests and rocks and gems and sheep.

Read my whole review on my other blog about family friendly gaming.


But don’t wait to try this game, because it is the Deal of the Week at

For the week of January 4 thru January 10, 2010 – A Kingdom for Keflings is 50% off at Xbox Live Arcade, at only 400 points.  That is only $5 US !!
