A Blast From The Past!

When my husband and I first met, we would play tons of video games together. (Not much has changed in 13 years!) We would play many different games, but two that always provided us with tons of entertainment- and frustration!- were Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2 for the GameCube. Many hours would be spent laughing at and cursing at these games!

For those who aren’t familiar, Super Monkey Ball sets you with the task of rolling your monkey who is in a…ball… to the goal. The stages range from easy to incredibly diabolical, and extreme precision is often required.

On a whim, I decided today would be a good day to revisit Super Monkey Ball with my husband!


We played through all of the Beginner and Advanced stages, and it was like riding a bike! Stages we haven’t played in years were so familiar to us, and we just got right back in the habit of how to play and what types of little tricks you can use to beat the stages easier. We still died a lot though!


We finally got tripped up on Expert Stage 9. We lost A LOT of lives on Stage 7, and a few on Stage 8, so we didn’t stand much of a chance. It was still so awesome and fun to revisit the past a little bit and play this game. Who knows, after work tomorrow, it may be time to play Super Monkey Ball 2 😉
