Winning Moves Games

I was given products in this post to test and give my honest feedback.  All opinions are my own.
Welcome to the 2015 Simply Me Holiday Gift guide!  The holidays should be fun.  At times finding the perfect gift, great deals, decorating and recipes can be overwhelming.  The Simply Me Blog wants to put the fun back into the Holidays so over the next several weeks I will be posting great gifts for everyone, decorating tips, recipes and everything in-between!

Saturday Night is normally game night in my house.  The past Saturday my hubby and I went to a Penn State Game and stayed the whole weekend.  (The 4th was our Wedding anniversary)
I thought nothing of it until I got home and my kiddos were upset with me for missing game night!  I knew they loved our game nights, but had no clue that they spent all week looking forward to them.  I told them it was no big deal that this week we will just have to have 2 game nights to make up for it.
They both smiled and the matter was settled :).
Having weekly game nights means we like to have a lot of games on hand.  You never know what we will be in the mood to play.  We have adult games, kids games and a mixture of adult/kid games.
There is something for everyone and no one is sure to be bored.
Our latest games came from Winning Moves Games.  I have purchased from them before and I'm always impressed with their huge selection.
Winning Moves is a leading maker of board games, card games, and puzzles. Since their first year of operation in 1995, they have formed a close relationship with one of the world's largest game companies, Hasbro, Inc., owner of Parker Brothers and Milton Bradley. 
As a result, many beloved Parker Brothers and Milton Bradley games are now made exclusively by Winning Moves! 

 A few are their games are Pass The Pigs, Clue, Rubik's Cube, Yahtzee, Rack-O, No Stress Chess, and hot new sellers like The Rubik's Void Puzzle, Classic Twister, Aggravation and Touring. Additionally, many timeless classics like Pit, Classic Monopoly, Classic Clue, Parcheesi Royal Edition, and Classic Yahtzee are now exclusively made by Winning Moves Games.
And these are just a few!
They are always striving to provide new family friendly games.

This year I was able to pick 3 games for review.  It was hard to choose with so many great options, in the end I picked 3 I know will bring lots of smiles and hours of play.



I think we have all played this at least once.  This is the classic spin and stretch twister.  You simply spin, see which color and body part and stretch to reach that color on the game mat.
I've play with friends when I was younger, it was nothing compared to playing with my kids.  Brandon Jr is a little cheat and resorts to tickling and making jokes so we laugh and fall over!!  We all giggle at his antics and it is a blast!  I was amazed a classic game could have all new fun when played with my kiddos.




The process of elimination.  In this game you have to guess who is on you opponents card.  You can ask question like is your person wearing glasses, do they have a mustache ect.
Slowly you eliminate whoever it can't be to figure out who it is.  I like that this game takes thinking.  My boys are 4 and 7 and both LOVE the game.



Before my review I have never played UpWords!  I had no clue it even existed.  I feel cheated, because this game was super fun.  You play by putting words on the board either up, down or across.  The catch is you can also stack words on top of each other to get points.  So the word "have"  is on the board and I have a C I can make it Cave.  Or I can ad an N to the end and make haven.  With the possible of building UP the word possibilities are endless. 

The three games I reviewed are only 3 of many.  Winning Moves games offers something for everyone!  Whether you are playing a family game with your kids, having friends over or even just want to pass time playing a game alone.  They have what you need.

This holiday season give the gift of fun with Winning Moves games.
