One of the first ever “multimedia” games I picked up for my PC at the time, the amazing Tandy Sensation!, was The 7th Guest. At the time in 1993, I was blown away by it. It was scary and it had movie like animations and clever puzzles. It's the game that Bill Gates called “the new standard in interactive entertainment”.

Old man Stauf built a house and filled it with his toys. Six Guests were invited one night, their screams the only noise. Blood in the Library, blood right up the hall, dripping down the attic stairs, “Hey Guests!, try not to fall”. Nobody came out that night. Not one was ever seen. But Old man Stauf is waiting there… Crazy! Sick! and MEAN!

Fortunately, today, companies like GOG.com have made these old DOS and Windows 95 games work on modern machines, and it's currently only $5.99. This means we are not only able to play them again, but we can share that experience with you!

This Friday, October 20th at 10PM Eastern, we will be streaming a play-through on our Twitch channel (https://twitch.tv/stayathomegamers). Just in time for Halloween, spooooky!

I hope I can remember the puzzles. I honestly still had the old “The 7th Guest Strategy Guide” book in my house recently. I think I got rid of it finally, though, so that won't help us. Stop by, say Hi, and hopefully you can help us!

Welcome

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
