March News Roundup

05-04-2011

Spring has finally sprung and it’s that time again to look back at last month’s smorgasbord of Rare content.

Why not read all about our victory at BAFTA where Sports won the award for Family Game of the Year? Or take a sneaky peek at our shiny new lobby that received a makeover this month. If you still can’t get enough Sports content, our Game Guide series can help you master the final four sports in the series, which in turn could help you break some of our ridiculously high world records.

Enjoy the full list of content below, and we’ll see you again same time next month for more fun and frolics.
