When I was small, we obviously did not have computers, or we did, but they were not in our home. The only time we would have a computer in our home was during the holidays, when my dad would borrow one from his work! We all took turns playing it (me and my SIX other siblings!). We would play the Oregon Trail and gosh it was fun! Besides the holidays and my dad bringing home a computer for us to play on, we would play board … [Read more...]

Playing Bingo Brings Me Back To The Good Old Days!

Growing up, my whole family, around the holidays, would play board games galore! It was so much fun and something I do now with my children. We sit around that card table and play games. I make finger foods and we have spiced apple cider and we just go for it. One of the games that I LOVED growing up was the Bingo game. I was always in charge of rolling that ball and taking out the bingo game piece and saying out loud to everyone, what it was! Too much fun. It is funny though, now that everything is being played on the computer, I was excited to learn that you can play online Bingo!!!! Woot! No more having to cart around that big old bingo ball (though it is FUN!!!), you can just go online and play until your heart is content. And, if no one else in your home wants to play bingo with you, well then find others online who do! It is a win/win situation if you ask me ;) So, playing bingo has always been something I would play with my family while growing up, as well as … [Read more...]

Skunked: The Ultimate Risk-Taking And Pushing The Limits Game!

Skunked

  I love games that make me think and that really get you involved. Me and my family are always playing board games and we absolutely love them! I was very excited when we were able to review the game called Skunked by Marina Games. It is the ultimate game of risk-taking and pushes you to the limits! My kids are still pretty young for this game, so me and my hubby played it while the kids played nearby with one of their games.It is really easy and fun to play. You just roll the dice and add the score. Then, you choose to roll again or note your score and pay your chips to the pot! You have to try not to get "skunked". See how high you can roll without rolling a one! Super fun and certainly is engaging! I won twice and my hubby won only once :) This is a game that I will be taking with me on family outings when I go to see my siblings. Growing up we were ALWAYS playing games like Skunked. So, this will be a part of our family fun for years to come, I am … [Read more...]
