So, do you love hockey and all things sports? Are you looking to get your fix online when you can’t make it to an actual rink?  Rinksters is one-part virtual-hangout and another part awesome game!

This free hockey game starts out by letting you make your own avatar, dressing it up and even choosing your own sports gear! You get to pick from a bunch of different jerseys featuring your favorite NHL team, and you can even play your favorite team on the ice!


The entire game functions right in your browser, and outside of playing hockey, there’s also a boatload of mini games to check out too! Outside of the rink, there’s a whole virtual world in Rinksters that you get to explore, and it’s all covered in snow and themed around hockey. You get to practice trick shots, match a bunch of objects (kinda like the favorite game Bejeweled), and a bunch of arcade games, both classic and the newest out there.


So now you know all about the games – what about the virtual world itself? It’s based in a ski resort town, and you get to chill out in the arena, locker room, and a bunch of classic hangout spots, like the local pond where you can ice skate. You can chat with other users, all under the supervision of a moderator to make sure that everyone’s keeping it friendly.

While the game is free, you can pay for a membership (if you can talk the parents into it or decide it’s worth your birthday money), which lets you get into the awesome VIP areas and get new gear for your avatar. All in all, Rinksters is fun for both genders, and a great way to explore the world of hockey, play games, and interact safely with other kids your age!


Rinksters is free to play.
