Christmas Cracker Mayhem2


Variety is rarely a bad thing and with this in mind, we saw nothing inappropriate about deviating from enthusiast hardware reviews. We at OC3D are led to believe that even the most deprived and socially unaware individuals have an interest in the festive period of Christmas. During the next few days you are likely to meet your loved ones, tolerate them (within reason) and sit around a table with a delicious and sleep inducing meal. This is great, unless you're the poor sod that has prepared this delightful reunion.

Over the last week or so, you may have had to have sourced a fine turkey, vegetables and sides as well as assorted alcohol and desserts. Forgetting something? But of course; the infamous Christmas Cracker.

One would be a fool to not incorporate this noisy addition to the dining table. After all, whats there to dislike? Not only do you gain the opportunity to show off all that braun from "gaming", you get to hear a real life explosion and even stand a chance at winning a prize for it!

I had to go on youtube to get the low down on Christmas Crackers, I have never heard of seen those before, must be very uncommon stateside. Looks like the little ones get a big kick out of it.

Wonder why they do not market those here, a lot of money to be made.Quote
