This is a review of a deck of oracle cards that I highly recommend.It's called Oracle of the Shapeshifters by Lucy Cavendish. It's full of beautiful artwork by Jasmine Becket-Griffith.
There are 45 cards and a booklet with guides of the cards and their meanings.
During a New Moon and a Full Moon, you can use these cards for a stronger reading from the spirit animals. As a beginner, you may draw out one card each day, to get a feel of this deck. Some may want to draw a card once a week or once a month at a Full Moon instead. Or you can make a variety of spreads in threes, fours, fives, ect, during a Full Moon if you wish.
The shapeshifter oracle cards have revealed so much insight and wisdom, advice and messages in reaction to my queries that this deck seems to know me personally!
The cards are beautiful and they're designed in such an earthy way that it's like touching wood and stone. I rate this deck a powerful 100/100 for it's magic, beauty, depth and accuracy.

Coraline is a 2009 kids horror animation directed by Henry Selick. It's based on a book by Neil Gaiman. Supposedly for children, it's very dark and grim. Coraline is about a girl who moves into a house with her workaholic parents and finds a secret passage that leads to a neighbouring house, where perfect copies of her parents live, except they're not the same at all. She thinks they're better than her real parents except they have buttons for eyes. The Other Mother soon wants to sew buttons on Coraline's eyes to keep her there out of "love".
I rate this 7/10 for its creepiness.
Coolest bits: The talking cat.

What brings me to talk about this last season of GOT is just a theory about what the Night King may be after and this might be the mysterious Night Queen.
Also it's possible that he's looking for a potential baby boy. Baby Sam who was supposed to have been given to the Others but now Baby Sam is a bit too big now, so the Night King is probably not interested in getting him. So instead, he may be looking for someone else. Okay the actor Vladimir Furdik, who plays the Night King, said in an interview that the Night King is after a "specific target". Many are saying that this "target" might be Jon Snow or Bran Stark. It could be a queen to give him sons? It's said that the Others can't procreate although we don't really know this.
There is the short clip of Queen Cersei crying during the new trailer. Many have guessed she's had a miscarriage or that she's been betrayed. It may be something else, and its much darker.
"Cersei the Night Queen" is a fan theory thats been around for a while but it's starting to make sense. If not for the TV series then the books.
There is a prophesy made by a witch called Maggy the Frog, who Cersei met when she was a girl. Maggy told a young Cersei that she'll have three children, not four. The three children will have gold crowns and gold shrouds. After her tears will drown her, the valonqar will wrap his hands around her pale white throat and choke the life from her. Interestingly, Maggy also told her that she'll be Queen, until another younger and more beautiful will cast her down and take all that she holds dear. Going by that, many have easily interprated it as Daenerys fighting a war for the Iron Throne. But it might again be a lot more supernatural and to do with the Night King and Long Night. If Cersei is the Night Queen, then it explains why she would be slain by the Valonqar and also the younger more beautiful other queen casting her down. That makes two individuals who'll end Cersei as queen. A number of many clues have hinted on Cersei being the Night Queen. This is all just guesswork. We can only wait and see.
Tin foil hat off now.

Army of Darkness is a 1992 film of the Evil Dead series of films starring Bruce Campbell. This film is the most comedic of the Evil Deads, but less of the Horror genre and more of a Fantasy. Ash is stuck in a Medieval time and needs the Lovecraftian type book "Necromonican" to get to his own time. Of course, there are problems, monsters and witches, that have terrorised the human population for a long time. This film borders on the ridiculous and has its share of other stories fed into the mix, such as Gulliver's Travels. I vote this film a 5/10 but even that was nice of me!

This is the third part of "Crazy Springtime games!".
My next review is on the game Dragon Cave by Wow Escape. This is a nice looking game although easy puzzles where you seek an item of treasure but have to get passed dragons. The music is Medieval and the puzzles are extremely easy. If you're not used to these type of game then you could use paper and pen to write down the clues and remember where things might be.
Next is King Viper by Wow Escape. This one plays eerie music and is set in a rainforest with large snakes. You need to find a stone in order to get out of there.

The first is Pinky Rabbit Rescue game by Games 4 King. This is very easy and just needs pen and paper or good memory, to look for clues and add objects to their shadows. Once you've done that it will give you items. Many doors need unlocking. These G4K games are dead easy to play but they're always such eye candy levels with pretty artwork.
Secondly is Flower Fantasy Escape by Wow Escape games. This is cartoony with fairytale graphics and will entertain kids, but also adults can have fun playing it too. The object of that game is to remove the crown from a queen bee by solving riddles, puzzles and collecting objects. There are plenty of flowers and bugs to use here, but the game is short and not for you if you're looking for a vast super levelled game.
Thirdly is Cherry Blossom Escape by Big Escape Games. The story is that you're lost inside a forest filled with cherry blossom trees so you have to find a way to get out. There is a lot of pink colours in this one and it's a larger game than the other two that I listed on here today. It's got a slightly harder series of puzzles and hidden items.

It's that again. GAME REVIEWS! Spring is almost here now and a plethora of games to play and review. Today I will review this game called Fruits Fairy Forest game. It's a point-and-click puzzle game designed by Wow Escape Games. The object of the game is to find a way to free a fairy trapped in a garden. You have to find fruits and open puzzles to find more clues to find more fruits. Collect the items and solve the riddles. This game is pretty nice and full of giant fruit houses and gardens. Some items will be hiding. The music is very soft and sweet, and the game is quite relaxing actually.
There is White Rabbit Escape created by Games 4 King. Same rules apply here and you need to rescue a big bunny rabbit. Like with most G4K games, the music is always the same and the sound effects are off putting. Depending on which G4K game you choose to play, the puzzles are very easy to do. While the levels on G4K games always have nice artwork, it feels like they were designed for children. However, all ages can enjoy them. These are for you if you just want to pass the time.

Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn is a 1987 sequal to Evil Dead. Directed by Sam Raini and stars Bruce Campbell. The film summarizes the previous film when Ash and his girlfriend vacate to a cabin in the woods and finds a tape recorder with a spell that raises the dead. Ash is confronted by his possessed girlfriend who tries to kill him and isn't human anylonger. Soon a group shows up and one is a daughter of the archeologist who lived in the cabin and found a mysterious book. That strange book unleashes the evil forces.
Silly comedic horror film but you've got to admire the gross make-up and special effects. All around a fun nightmarish film to watch.
I rate this a 7/10.
WTF moment: The trees!
