The Golden Girls Shady Pines Game Set

It’s 2022, a few days ago the unthinkable happened and we lost Betty White. As a huge Mary Tyler Moore and of course Golden Girls fan I’m a bit heartbroken, she was a legend.  Naturally the next step for me is to start thinking about planning some epic Golden Girls nights. Which is where this…

Snake Oil

I definitely have a soft spot for these creative card games. Snake Oil is a game where you are inventing a product and selling to a specific customer. This game is good for three to ten players and takes about half an hour to play. The game says 10 and up, but I’m fairly sure…

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…

Scrap Fabric Card Holder

Looking around, all I can see is fabric in my apartment so I thought it would be a good idea to make something with some of the odd pieces. This card holder is incredibly fast to make and looks really cute. It’s great for gift cards, holding your debit cards or can be used as…

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…
