UNO

This post is about another classic, UNO. I think at some point in everyone’s life they’ve come across UNO. This plays a lot like a regular card game, it’s easy to take anywhere and the rules are straight forward. When I think of UNO, I think of cottages or camping, somewhere you want to play…

Here to Slay

Here to Slay is a game where you are creating a group of Heroes to slay some monsters while avoiding enemies.  There are two ways to win, either be the first player to Slay 3 Monsters or be the first to have a full Party of six different classes. This is a 30 minute game…

Mysterium Park

Mysterium Park is basically a haunted amusement park that you will be investigating.  You are a physic who is going to communicate with the ghost to solve the mystery of their murder.  I’m not quite sure if this is considered a sequel to Mysterium but it is more streamlined and compact. For people who like…

Calico

Well if there was ever a theme made for me, cats and quilts is it. In Calico, you are trying to make the best quilt and to attract cats. This is a tile puzzle game that is easy to play but also kind of tricky to get the points you want. I appreciate that there…

Wits and Wagers Party

I was really excited to try Wits and Wagers but didn’t end up liking it as much as I thought I would. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot I do like about the game, the questions were fun and interesting. I liked being able to vote on other answers as well, but it did…

Scattergories

Time to look at another classic game. We are back to word games and today will discuss Scattergories. Now this isn’t a game I play often but it is always well received and as far as I’m concerned it’s timeless. This is kind of a perfect family game night to play with young and old….

Catan

Catan is a game of trading and building, but it’s so much more. Catan is a classic game that became pretty mainstream. A lot of serious gamers have kind of moved past it, there are a lot game options out there now. Some people don’t like how much luck drives this game and find it’s…

Dixit

Dixit is a unique party game where you are trying to describe an image without having everyone guess it.  So the statements need to be a bit cryptic to get the right amount of votes.  This game is gorgeous and the cards leave a lot open to interpretation. This game is for 3 to 6…

Snake Oil

I definitely have a soft spot for these creative card games. Snake Oil is a game where you are inventing a product and selling to a specific customer. This game is good for three to ten players and takes about half an hour to play. The game says 10 and up, but I’m fairly sure…

Pitch Car Mini

I haven’t seen this game in stores for years so when I saw it I had to pick up a copy. This is the mini version so its smaller than the original but it is the same idea. This game has been around for a while and there are a lot of different expansions to…
