Hasbro Games review and giveaway (Christmas Gift Guide) CLOSED


Photobucket

The holidays always seems to bring family and friends closer together. But why not find ways to strenghen those relationships all year long? This is why I recommend giving the gift of "quality time" to your loved ones this year, and what better way then selecting the perfect game you all can enjoy. To help you find that perfect game, I contacted Hasbro Games and asked them to share with me their top games for this years gift list. Not only did they send me a large list with a variety of types of games for all ages, but they also offered to send me some games of my own to try out for free.

I used their recommendations for a great family game and an adult game. I was sent "PICTUREKA! FLIPPER" and "THE GAME OF THINGS".




Review:
"PICTUREKA! FLIPPER" is the perfect game for a family with children of all ages (6 and up). Although my son is a little younger than the recommended age he loved it. It really challenged him and brought out the competitiveness in my husband and I. We all were able to enjoy it together and found it very entertaining. Both my son and youngest thought it humorous how the penguin would flip the cards out and squawk.

As for a game made for the adults, I highly recommend "The Game Of Things". My husband and I played this game with our neighbors and then again with my side of the family. Everyone really seemed to enjoy it. This game is a great way to break the ice and find out who people really are. This isn't really a serious game, but is guaranteed to bring lots of laughs.

If you are interested in Hasbro and the game they have to offer, you can go to their official site and look under games. Here you also can search through different types of games and what is recommended for which ages. Hasbro Games can be found at almost any store locally. If you have a particular game you are looking for, you can go to the website, select the game and the site will bring up some other sites that carry that particular game.

Giveaway:
One person win "The Game Of Things" to enjoy with their family and friends this Christmas.

My favorite holiday tradition for Thanksgiving is that we always stop people at the front door when they arrive, and have them right down what they are thankful for! When everyone has arrived, we cut out what everyone wrote, and make a paper chain, and read aloud at the dinner table!

Family games play an important part of my family's holiday traditions. After the big meal on Thanksgiving, christmas, etc., we always play a board game together. Our favorites are the classics: Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble or Monopoly. It's a great way to share some laughs during the holiday and make spending time together even more fun!

I don't think we have one favorite game. We love everything from Dutch Blitz to Chutes and Ladders to Scrabble to Acquire to Balderdash . . .

Our newest addition to the game closet is To Bethlehem, a board game where the goal is to be the first to see baby Jesus - but you just might have to sing a few Christmas carols, sit on someone's lap, wear your socks on your hand, or call your grandma before you get there. Everyone in our family has enjoyed it! :)
