If you have an older child, you've undoubtedly heard the word "Fortnite" at least once in your household. Our Fornite addicted offspring can often be found shouting back and forth about what seems like their own secret language for the game that is basically known as the new Minecraft. Whether you find it annoying or have noticed yourself jumping in to join them for a game or two, this new parody will have parents nodding their heads saying "yes, yes, yes."
First of all, if you're unsure about the inner workings of Fortnite, it's basically a game that tasks players with surviving in a post-apocalyptic world by defeating zombie-like creatures through solo play. The cost is $40, but a free, multiplayer version of the long-form game, called Fortnite: Battle Royale, was more recently released that has enticed younger players to jump on board the Fortnite train. While there is an emphasis on teamwork and strategic, creative thinking, it does involve guns and some violence, so if your kids haven't yet been introduced, those details are definitely worth considering.
