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…

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. 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…

Medium

After the success I had playing The Mind, I was all over the idea of Medium, just to get that same spooky mind reading sort of feeling. I haven’t played this a lot, from my experience its a hit or a complete miss. It seems to really depend on who you are playing with. It…

Slapagories

I have a very soft spot for quick games and with good reason, they are easy to get people interested, the set up is fast and its takes nothing to explain the rules to get started. Scattegories is a great classic, but sometimes you want something a bit lighter, faster and with a tiny bit…

Nautilion

Nautilion is a beautiful game that can be played solo or as a cooperative game for two players. It’s ages 10 and up and takes about 30 minutes to play.  This is the first solo game I’ve wrote about and it’s a great one to start with. Before you even play the game, take in…

Throw Throw Burrito

Throw Throw Burrito is a game that combines cards and throwing things. Something I didn’t know I wanted and turns out I definitely needed. I love this one, it’s made by the same people that brought us exploding kittens. I love that it keeps that style but has completely different gameplay, it’s fresh and it’s…

WTF (What the Fish) Card Game

This a simple card game for Ages 8 and Up and can be played with 2 to 6 Players. My nephew got me this one for Christmas and we played quite a few rounds. It was only four of us and I think it might be better with five or six but it was still…

Jungle Speed

I’ve owned a copy of Jungle Speed for over 10 years. I remember playing it at a game night, before I really started building a collection and buying it almost immediately after. At that point as a non gamer, that was fairly significant. Now I’ll buy a game without thinking twice, I’m at the game…

The Classics – Sorry!

Sorry! is a game I grew up playing, it was easy as a child to pick up and a lot of fun. As an adult I still feel the same way. For me there’s a bit of nostalgia attached so I could be biased, but who doesn’t like mischievously saying sorry. This is a simple…
