Merry Christmas

Greetings All,

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope all of you have/will manage(d) to get in a board game or two in today. Our Christmas celebration was yesterday, we only played three games between dinner and gift giving. I just wanted to share them with you.

Christmas Trivia by Greenbrier-

-2+ Players, 5+ Mins-

We played with five us and said the first one to ten got a candy cane. There are three questions on each card and the range from very easy to fairly hard. It’s definitely a kid friendly game, but they made it with enough complicated questions to be fun for adults as well.

Munchkin Loot Letter by AEG and Steve Jackson Games-

-2-4 Players (We played with five), 20 Mins-

This is “Love Letter with a face lift.”, as my husband says. It’s Love Letter meets Munchkin. It is a great play and easy to learn. All of the cards originate from the game Munchkin and they all have the same abilities as the one from Love Letter.

-Glow Stick Ring Toss-

This is one you can make yourself, but I bought mine at Dollar Tree. It was too cold to play outside. We waited until it was dark outside and turned off the lights in the house. We played ring toss in the living room. Originally we had planned on playing first to five, however, the task of making one ring proved so difficult that it became the first to one. It took us twenty minutes of playing before my son finally made one ring, but it was really fun.

One last thing I’d like to share with you is the idea of family gifts. We make a small list of family gifts, which are usually board games or movies. This year we had the games mentioned above as well as Munchkin Panic and a Uno variant. I will review these two later as we have not yet played them. Thank you so much for reading, have a Happy Holiday, and until next time… Live by the Board.
