Trial by Trolley

Trial by Trolley, a new card game by Cyanide & Happiness, that is a similar idea to a lot of the other party debate games I’ve discussed in the past. However, this one has a few interesting ideas that add a little bit extra. First it’s played in teams, so everyone is engaged each round….

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…

The Classics – Scrabble

Let’s start by saying Scrabble is an amazing game. By far the best word game I’ve ever played.

Truth Bombs

Truth Bombs is for ages 14 and up and takes about 20 minutes to play. This is for 4 to 8 players but it’s also a game that could be interesting to watch if you had too many people. The game itself is more about having fun than winning or losing but if you really…

The first Classic game to review is obviously Yahtzee. I have been playing Yahtzee as long as I can remember. Whenever we would visit my grandparents there was always a game and I loved it. It was so great for quality time and it gave me a lot of good memories. So I might be a…

The Mind
