I was given products in this post for the purpose of review. I was not paid to write this review.
This past year my kiddos and I have been playing more games then ever before. And I'm proud to admit my 9 year old beat me at Clue yesterday! They got really good at these games lol. Our perfect game night includes food, laughter and of course games. Sometimes we even do a theme night and wear pjs, our Halloween costumes, Santa hats and so much more! Game night is never dull in the Miller house hold.
With that being said it should come as no surprise that a board game or two are always under my Christmas tree. They really are the gift that keeps giving. And my holiday guide would not be complete with out listing a few. This year I'm excited to include several items from Spin Master. My family has been enjoying Spin Master games for years now. They have something for every age and seem to grow with my boys.
It’s as easy as Pick, Place, Play! Pick your favorite headband and a take a picture card without looking at the drawing. Put the headband on and place the card in the headband so the illustration is facing all players. Then, play by asking questions with “yes” and “no” answers as you try to guess what’s on your card! It’s a race against the clock to be the first player to get three scoring badges to win.
Grouch Couch game
Ever wonder what happens to those little items that go missing? Now’s your chance to find out and maybe get some things back when Grouch Couch spits out Lost Goodies! Take turns feeding Grouch Couch all kinds of tasty treats. Then press the remote-control and see what happens. He might grumble, chomp, burp and (hopefully) eat your treats! When he does, he’ll spit out Lost Goodies. You’ll want to collect these because the player with the most Lost Goodies when Grouch Couch plays his victory song, wins! Requires 3 x AAA batteries
Can you turn “dog” into “log”? You can with Upwords! In this high-stacking word game, players place tile letters onto the game board to create new words, or stack and build on top to change existing words. When it’s your turn, easily place your letters by rotating the lazy Susan game board in your direction. Earn points for words a single tile high and points for letters underneath – the higher you stack, the higher you score! If you form two or more words in a single turn, you’ll earn even more points. For additional word-hacking practice, you can improve your Upwords game play by playing solo. How will you stack up? Find out with Upwords!
Upwords was my favorite! The game board just keep switching, and the longer the game goes the harder it gets. My kids loved Hedbanz the most, they got pretty silly during this game and it was fun to see them trying to think of questions to help them figure out what was on their head. My hubby didn't appreciate the kids and I saying he was going to be a pro at Grouch Couch. You see my hubby plays the real live version and loses everything in the cushion of our couch lol. But we did have a blast playing this game, and I like it can be played by younger and older players a like. I have a niece that is only 3 and even she was able to have fun and understand what to do.
