DALLAS, TX (Nov. 19, 2009) – The second issue of Beckett Media’s FUN! Online Games features KingsIsle Entertainment’s popular Wizard101 game on its cover and contains several features and perks for fans of the fantasy-themed online game. Of special interest is an exclusive in-game code found in every magazine that players can add to their Wizard101 account, giving them the Fog Unicorn pet and a Darkwind card. Other Wizard101 coverage in the magazine includes a guide to the bad guys of the Wizard101 world, a description of the seven wizard classes in the game, and a poster of the cover, which features the Headmaster of the Ravenwood School of Magical Arts.

In addition to its Wizard101 coverage, FUN! Online Games #2 includes a wealth of information and tips for the most popular kids’ online games on the Internet, including updates and new information about Club Penguin, Webkinz World, Neopets, Free Realms, and Disney’s Toontown Online. The magazine also includes features on new, up-and-coming games like Moshi Monsters, Bright Shadow, and Nanovor, as well as a code that allows players of Freaky Creatures to receive a rare holiday-themed Puff Puff creature.

“We’re excited to offer so much great stuff for Wizard101 fans in FUN! Online Games,” said Editorial Director Doug Kale. “It’s shaping up to be one of the top online games around and Beckett’s proud to have it as a major component of our magazine. We hope our readers will appreciate all the Wizard101 goodies, along with our coverage of all the other great games out there!”
