Mystery Date

Mystery Date came out in 1965, this tin version matches the original artwork. This game was for young girls ages 6 to 14 and could be played by 2 to 4 players. To get in the feel for this please watch this commercial from the 1960s. I only consider this game a classic for how…

Homemade Popcorn Seasonings

Popcorn is not my favourite snack, but I really want it to be. I thought if could make my own seasoning, I could make popcorn a bit more appealing. For the next little while I will be making my own seasoning, taste testing and giving my thoughts. This post will be updated as more seasonings…

The Mind Extreme

What’s New About the Extreme Version? Last year I was introduced to The Mind. I consider it to be the ultimate cottage or camping card game. Everyone I know has fallen in love with it. When I saw the extreme version, obviously I had to pick it up. If you’ve never played The Mind, I…

There’s so Many Different Ways to Make a Facemask

With everyone needing a mask these days I wanted to compile a list of different options so anyone no matter what they have available can put their own together. It would definitely be better to sew your own mask, but not everyone has a machine available or knows how to sew. Luckily there are also…

The Classics – Scrabble

Let’s start by saying Scrabble is an amazing game. By far the best word game I’ve ever played. I may be baised, it’s also very sentimental, I have a lot of great memories of my grandparents playing scrabble. In fact they played everyday and were quite good at it too. What an adorable relationship activity…

Gimp Bracelets – A Throwback to the 90s

It’s summer and no better way to celebrate than by making bracelets. Last year I did a post on making friendship bracelets. This time I thought I would do a bit of a 90s throwback and switch it up with some plastic lace. I found a pack at Dollarama for $2 and felt it was…

I love escape rooms, but with the pandemic in our lives it doesn’t seem like I’ll be going back to one anytime soon. Luckily there’s a few different escape room game options to play at home. The first one I am trying is from the Unlock! series. They are pretty impressive and they seem to…
