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…

Unlock! Escape Adventures – Squeek & Sausage

I love escape rooms, but with the pandemic in our lives it doesn’t seem like I’ll be going back to one anytime soon. Luckily there’s a few different escape room game options to play at home. The first one I am trying is from the Unlock! series. They are pretty impressive and they seem to…

Nintendo Switch – Ring Fit

Now that the Corona virus is keeping us all at home and my gym is closed, I thought I would post about the games I use to keep me moving. I will start this post by saying I’m not much into video games so don’t expect a lot from this category. To start this category…

Single Stich Headband and Fingerless Gloves

It’s winter and in Canada we are definitely feeling the cold. A great time to pick up that crochet hook and get moving. Here are a couple of cozy ideas to help make it through the season. Both only using a chain stitch and a single crochet that we’ve been working with in the other…

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…

Cranium Brain Break

I’ve already talked about Cranium and Cranium After Dark.  Now its time to add a different cranium game to the mix.  Cranium Brain Break.  This is very similar to Cranium After Dark, I felt Cranium After Dark wasn’t marketed well to the right group of people.  Whereas Cranium Brain Break has a larger audience with…

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…

Scalemaille Arm Bands

It’s been a while since I posted about scalemaille, with halloween fast approaching its a good piece to add in. In this post I will be discussing creating an arm cuff. Although it takes a little time, it is pretty straight forward. For this project you will need: 200 large scales, you may use more…

Banana Boats

This is another tin foil classic. I’ve seen people keep it in the peel, personally I take it out. I guess it’s whatever floats your banana boat. For this quick and easy treat you will need: banana chocolate chips mini marshmallows tin foil peanut butter(optional) peacans (optional) graham cracker crumbs (optional) When you look at…

We all act like monsters at one time or another. King of Tokyo is living the old movie monster dream. Goal is to be either the last monster standing or at least the most destructive. This game is for ages 8 and up and is for 2 to 6 players. It combines fighting and basically…
