Shot Roulette is an awesome drinking game for BlackBerry 10



BlackBerry is all about business these days but all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Shot Roulette is a fun game to play and unwind with your friends (up to 6 players).

Shot Roulette is played just how you think. Either you “Take a Bullet”, “Dodge a Bullet”, “Misfire” or “Send a Bullet” to a friend. The infamous “Take a Bullet” card is where the fun starts – if you draw this card it’s your turn to take a shot. If you pick up the “Dodge a Bullet” card, don’t sweat, you’re spared from this round’s shot. If you get a “Misfire” card, you can save it to dodge a future bullet! And if you’re lucky enough to get the “Send a Bullet” card, choose a friend and give ‘em a shot.

Download Shot Roulette at this BlackBerry World link.

Save The Date…September 24th, 2014




Save the date folks! On September 24th 2014, BlackBerry is planning to host a special invite only event in Dubai, London and Toronto. Now there is a lot of speculation on what BlackBerry plans to unveil at this event including the much talked about BlackBerry Passport device and or some hot new software simply called BlackBerry Blend.

I wish I was able to make any of the 3 specified event locations in order to provide the best news coverage available but at this time seems like I’ll be watching from the sidelines. Let’s hope they broadcast and stream the events live on line in order provide a chance for those not as fortunate to experience all of the festivities online that BlackBerry has to offer.

I am very excited to see what BlackBerry has up their sleeves and maybe just maybe we might get a Playbook 2, now that would be just too awesome. What do you think BlackBerry will announce at this special event?
