New Bloons Games added

The addictive series of games by Ninja Kiwi, Bloons

We have added some new games in the Bloons series. You can jump over to them by clicking the Games tab.  Also, due to complaints that some of the games are not fitting or barely fitting on people’s laptop screens, we have resized a few games to see how you feel about the smaller size.

Happy gaming.  Peta-Gaye wishes to remind you not to spend all your waking moments playing games.  It’s a recreational activity and should be treated as such… not a replacement for family, friends, work, school, etc.

Thanks for being a member of  Yowlink, the FREE,  “One Caribbean” network.  This is the network where your voice and opinion counts.

  2. Brasil (Brazil)
  3. Deutchland (Germany)
  4. Ghana
  5. España (Spain)
  6. Paraguay
  7. The Netherlands (Holland)
  8. Uruguay

Spain vs Netherlands

But, in the end it came down to Spain and The Netherlands.  Except for the polls on Yowlink, everyone had Spain as huge favorites to take the Cup once Germany and Brazil were eliminated.
