At IGGPPCamp this past August, Troop Nook made terrariums. If you joined in on that craft, congratulations, you’re one step closer to today’s HallowIggles DIY Cemeterrarium. Get it?

To get you in the mood for All Hallows’ Eve, we’ve collected some creepy classics for your viewing pleasure. A bit of horror, a smidgen of laughter, an unreliable narrator or two, and a big dollop of Alfred Hitchcock make for the perfect recipe of spooky movies.
The recipe I'm using is a super simple chocolate chip cookie, the only thing that I'm altering is the ingredient that transforms them into Spooky Cookies. If you want a different kind of cookies you can also transform them by using this simple ingredient.
This year’s 24-hour Halloween party is a sleepover! The staff have sneaked off to the haunted library for ghost stories, urban legends, and gossip. Come join us! We’ve got candy.
This game took me by surprise. It is chewier than I generally like and movement can be a bit of a mindbend at first but it really is so much fun because Merlin throws everything into confusion. You can only plan so much in advance because if any of your actions requires Merlin and your opponent(s) move Merlin first, suddenly your whole scheme may be ruined. Time to reassess!
Indie publisher, Small Monsters Games' new card game, Takeout, is a small pack that packs a punch.
When Polly’s Plastics reached out to see if we would review their products for the +5 Charisma blog I was immediately threw myself at the chance. Moldable plastics?! That sounds so cool!
Around the IGGPPC, we love our pets both real and digital. This month’s theme, Feed Me, Human! is an homage to our pets that exist in cyberspace. Somewhere between Pogs and Furbies, the “it” toy to have was the Tamagotchi. A keychain-sized digital pet that required love, attention, and care - and would die without them. These digital friends have adapted to our smartphone apps and exist in new games like Neopets, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon Go. The IGGPPC staff are here to share a bit about their virtual critters and introduce some IRL pets too!
Do you love music? Have you ever attended a live concert to experience music? Most of us have. And so most of us can relate to Sarah Pinsker's debut novel, A Song for a New Day.
