The Mind

The Mind is quickly becoming one of my absolute favourite games.  Its a card game for 2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up and takes roughly half an hour. Don’t let the simplicity fool you this one becomes tense pretty quickly. I brought this one to a cottage. It was definitely the hit of…

Happy Salmon

Happy Salmon is one of my absolute favourites.   The game is super simple and it takes only a minute or so to play a round. This is for ages 6 and up and for 3 to 6 players. The Green and Blue packs are pretty much identical except the card stacks have different colours….

Saboteur

Saboteur is a 3-10 player game for ages 8 and up. For this game, the players take on the role of either gold diggers or Saboteurs.  Gold diggers are searching for treasures, Saboteurs are creating obstacles.  During the game you’ll create a maze of pathways going from the start card to the goal cards.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle is a deck building game for 2-4 players for ages 11 and up.  The first level takes roughly 30 minutes and each level takes longer from there. The theme just works.  It definitely keeps Harry Potter fans happy, but also you dont have to know the books or movies to play.   The game…

Anomia

A game for 3-6 players aged 10 and up.   Game lasts for about 30 minutes.  This one is great for groups, you can easily step in and out of the game so its perfect at the start or end of an evening.  This is very similar style to Blurble, but offers a bit more of a challenge…

Tsuro The Game of the Path

This is a 2 to 8 player game for ages 8 and up.  It takes very little time to learn, basically you are just following a path and hoping that it doesn’t lead you off the board. I really like the look of this game, it has a very nice design and a classic feel….

Blurble

Ages 8 and up, 4 to 8 players, however I have played this with more. Let’s start with how to play, the “blurbler” places the stack between themselves and the player to their left.  When the two players are ready a card is flipped over, the first person to say a word that starts with…

Exploding Kittens

Exploding kittens is a card game where everyone draws a card until someone gets an Exploding kitten and are eliminated.  This is a lighted hearted card game for 2 to 5 players aged 7 and up. The theme is adorable and the cards are funny. It’s a simple concept that works well. To set up…

Spaceteam

I think I had my hopes up a bit too much for this one.  I found this online, I watched their video, I was sold on the idea and bought it right away. In Spaceteam, you and your team must work together to fix all the malfunctions on your ship in under 5 minutes.  …
