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!
Each year the IGGPPC heads off to virtual summer camp. Connecting all across the globe, our online campgrounds host campfire stories, s’mores, movies, crafts, games, and friendships in the making! We asked our Camp Staff and Troop Counselors to share a bit about their camping experiences, both with the IGGPPC and out in the world.

Our theme for Round 61 was Level Up! We asked our staff about their favorite games and MOAR.
It’s preaching to the choir to tell our community that finding friends online is possible; we’re pretty much experts. But it’s no less of a miracle that these relationships grow up out of text on a screen and flourish into lifelong bonds. Digital meetcutes happen every day and are always worth celebrating!
