Cornhole – One Of The Most Fun Games To Play At A Party Is Still Tops For Tailgating

On top of the list of most fun games to play at a party is the popular toss game of Cornhole. Originally a big hit at tailgating events, Cornhole is here to stay at BBQs, birthdays, bar contests, fund raisers, most any kind of party.

Partygoers love to play Cornhole and swarm the playing area when the cornhole set comes out. The game is easy to learn and very, very fun to play. Similar to horseshoes only in that it’s a tossing game, corn or bean stuffed bags are aimed toward a hole on a slanted board. Points are earned when a bean bag is tossed and successfully lands into the hole or on the board.  (Complete rules and directions usually accompany the product.)

In charge of finding fun games to play at a party and you’re wondering where to buy Cornhole? The first place you think to look is your local sporting goods store, right?  Not so!

Mobile Games Monetizing – Trends and Strategies You Must Know

Wonder what has made this game app so huge? Well, the statistics clearly depict the inclination of more than millions of people towards mobile gaming. And, if you already have a mobile game app or want to launch one soon, it will definitely give you good returns. But, there is a rule book for everything and so, for creating profitable mobile gaming apps.

Know your target – There are millions of game apps available that can be downloaded for free. If you have the plan to launch your game, then the first step to develop a game is to know your audience. Study and understand their needs and interest. A good mobile app development company, does a detailed research, before starting with the development process.

Online Community – Get social, because the audiences are social. They want to exchange their experiences, scores with friends and also with other users across the world. Thus, offer your users a multichannel gaming experience to spike their engagement levels.

In-app purchases – Anything for free attract customers always. People are not willing to spend money to download games when, there are so many free games available. As a solution to this, you can include In-app purchase offer. Once, the user is engaged with the game, he wouldn’t mind to make a purchase while playing. Also, you may offer the users with incentives that will support in persuading them to make a purchase. This, is a good medium to earn revenue, which can be more than the revenue through downloads.

Mobile Ads – If you know how to rightly pitch your user, mobile ads form a potential medium to earn profits. Native ads are the way to go, avoid banner ads that are non- appealing. Be sure that the ad format is synchronized with the mobile app design.

User behavior and technology varies with every mobile operating system. Create your monetizing strategy, after studying the behavior patterns and only after learning the technique of the operating system. The smartphone market is a complex one, and along with it, is a tough competition in the market that overwhelms the developers to follow the right monetizing strategy.

Also, Mobile game analytics are significant to understand how the users are approaching the game and to calculate the changes that are needed to make, to achieve mass downloads by providing an exciting gaming experience.

The Mobile Game Trend

Recently, mobile gaming has been gaining a rather large share in terms of revenue. Gaming consoles/platforms and online gaming giants have dominated the game industry for the last decades, but with the enormous mobile gaming insurgents, change is definitely coming and change is welcome especially for avid gamers and enthusiasts.

Mobile games revenue forecast is predicted to increase up to $45 billion by 2018. Asia has been the leader in the industry since 2013, and is predicted to dominate the industry by up to 50% total revenue. Industry Analyst Vincent van Deelen stated, “This is simply not the case. We are also emphasizing that the recent results of individual high profile companies such as Rovio, King, DeNA and GREE are not necessarily indicative of the state of the mobile market as a whole. It is not in our interest to inflate market figures, but the hard facts have forced us to adjust our estimates upward. We have maintained our year-on-year growth rates toward 2017, ultimately leading to a $40Bn+ market share.”

In this regard, mobile game players have successfully gained large share in the market like most gaming console and online gaming companies. Indeed, this is good news for game development companies and their shareholders to put more focus and emphasis on this growing trend. Android games are also expected to be predictably higher in the coming years. Though, it is still a proven fact that iOS rakes in more revenue than Google Play despite the latter having massive download for freemium model type of games. But in a global perspective, Chinese app stores and android game downloads and revenue far exceeded iOS last 2014. North America, Europe and other Asian countries, such as Japan and South Korea have also ventured in the global trend. Reports show that mobile games now account for nearly 40% of the country’s total digital games revenue. With increased competition, smaller companies are also getting creative with the introduction of e-sports, multi-screen gaming and HTML5 mobile gaming, and the final trend is the rising popularity of downloading Android games for TV-based gaming. The top 7 companies  in the mobile gaming industry compete for the release of quality games to dominate further and not to get left behind in the scene.
