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….

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…

Chronicles of Crime

Chronicles of Crime is a crime solving app assisted cooperative game. Working as a team you have to piece together the evidence and report your findings back to the police chief. The cases can get tough and its easy to run out of ideas and hit a dead end. However, the challenge is what makes…

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…

Anomia X

Anomia X is a for 3 to 6 players, this version is for the older crowd, 18 and up. Last year I wrote about the regular version of Anomia. This version plays the same so you can read that post, linked here for the rules. The only difference between the original version and this one…

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…

Fun Employed

Another game that offers a little bit of creative thinking, in this game you are going to build a resume and get a job.  Seems pretty relatable.  This can be played with 3 or more players and is for 13 years and up. This game falls into a category with Cards Against Humanity or Superfight. …
