Product Review :- Uno is a super game for teaching kids their numbers. Perfect for families because all ages love it. Even little ones can sit on mom/dad’s lap and help play. Game play is quick.
Teens get into the game, too. This is a fun game to play over the dinner table or to take camping. I actually bought this as an extra to have in our 72 hour emergency kit, to keep kids entertained if we need to evacuate our home and end up in a shelter for a few days during a disaster.
It’s small, compact and portable. Even though each round is quick, my kids can play it for quite a while before they get bored.Buy One…Price is – $4.99
Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.
The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.
Product Review :- This game is so much fun. I played it with 3 generations family last weekend. I’ve been fearful of us drifting apart. Usually the adult nephews are bored and ready to bolt. Everybody has to be “someplace.”
I had reservations about playing this game w my mom and her grandsons so I pulled maybe 30 of the most “horrible” cards but after about 20 min I started shuffling them in.
We as a family haven’t laughed and enjoyed each others’ company in a VERY long time. After 2 hours flashed past more than one face hurt from laughing.
We like to think highly of ourselves but by the end the consensus was yup, we really are horrible people. Funny but THAT bonded us. Looking forward to Thanksgiving and I’m not the only one. Get One…Price is – $25.00
Party card game for friends for the social media generation. Think you’ve got what it takes to out-meme your friends IRL? Compete to create the funniest meme by pairing Caption Cards with the Photo Card in play.
A rotating judge picks the best combination each round. Play until you’re hungry, at which point stop playing and order a pizza. The rules are simple.
Each round, a rotating judge plays a Photo Card and everyone else plays a Caption Card to complete the meme. The judge decides the funniest pairing, and whoever played the winning Caption Card wins the round. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Product Review :- I bought this for the afterparty fun for our last beer pong tournament. From the minute it was unboxed everyone was really interested in the game. We played with 3 couples and had a blast!
The game is simple and very entertaining. We did pass on using the red cards, which would have probably made the game even better had we played it right.
The ONLY negative feedback I have to give is we found a grammar error on one card… which was surprising! No worries though. 10/10. Available Here…Price is – $29.99
Challenge a friend to disc-dropping fun with the classic game of Connect 4! Drop your red or yellow discs in the grid and be the first to get 4 in a row to win.
If your opponent is getting too close to 4 in a row, block them with your own disc! Whoever wins can pull out the slider bar to release all the discs and start the fun all over again! Connect 4 and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.
Product Review :- I really loved Connect 4 when I was a kid. Then I bought this for my 3 year old and 1 year old. Although they are not playing by the rules, putting the discs into the slot keeps them busy.
It’s also a good tool to teach colors and counting as well as learn about taking turns. A+ plus in my book. Get One…Price is – $8.77
It’s the Guess Who? game – the original guessing game! This Guess Who? game goes back to the tabletop style boards, styled after the original, rather than handheld boards. Each player chooses a mystery character and then using yes or no questions, they try to figure out the other player’s mystery character.
When they think they know who their opponent’s mystery character is, players make a guess. If the guess is wrong, that player loses the game!
Players can also challenge opponents to a series of games in the Championship Series, where the first player to win 5 games is the Guess Who? champion. Hasbro and all related terms are trademarks of Hasbro.
Product Review :- I like that the characters are a little different than what I remember seeing when I played the game as a kid. They are more diverse, instead of having the vast majority of the characters being white.
My main complaint is that the cards that you put into each of the holders easily fall out when you are putting the pieces up or down, or when you are taking the game out of the the box. I’ll have to glue them in place so I won’t end up losing them.
Also, I use this game with elem. aged students, and they have difficulty opening the box and getting the game pieces in or out of the box. Buy One…Price is – $9.94
Get a handy way to play the classic property-trading game! Be the first collect 3 full property sets of different colors, and you’ll win the Monopoly Deal Card Game.
You’ll pick up cards when it’s your turn and play Action cards to charge players rent, steal their cards or demand money for your birthday.
Build up property sets, gather piles of money and keep wheeling and dealing until you’re the Monopoly Deal winner! Monopoly and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.
Product Review :- No words can describe how grateful I am to have bought this game. For the last few years it’s been incredibly difficult getting our family of four together and happy, even during holidays.
Yesterday night for Christmas I pulled out monopoly deal and for the first time in ages all 4 of us wanted to stay in the same room for more than the usual!
We laughed, laugh-cried, and played almost 15 “one more round”s (hah!). It’s super fun and easy to learn. Even my mom who doesn’t know english well was able to catch on, and she enjoyed it too (she usually despises games).
Dad wasn’t retreating to man cave, and little brother wasn’t grumpy or rushing to see friends. Everyone wanted to keep playing and conspire over who to kill next.
If you ever want to see mid-20 and mid-50 year olds acting like children again, this is the perfect game for you. I am so glad I bought this game. Buy One…Price is -$3.49
Exploding kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats. In this highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian roulette, players draw cards until someone draws an exploding kitten, at which point they explode, they are Dead, and they are out of the game — unless that player has a defuse card, which can defuse the kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches.
All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the exploding kittens. Exploding kittens is the most-backed crowd funded project ever, the most-funded game in the history of Kickstarter, and has paved the way for peace and tranquility in the modern world.
Product Review :- I must say, this game is funny and a blast to play. I can see why it has so many positive reviews. We love it, and would give the game five stars except for two issues.
The first is that it is simply a card game. Paying $20 for a deck of cards seems a bit steep to me. However, honestly, that wouldn’t bother me as much if not for the second issue.
The production quality of the cards are low. Most of the regular decks of cards I’ve played lasted longer than these. Within a few weeks, we were seeing wear on the cards that took some of the mystery out of what was in another players hands. Now, after about 20 games, every card is marked by wear on the edges.
I would encourage the game developers to invest in a thicker card with a heavier wax like the ones many other card decks are made with. If you purchase the game, and you have a laminator, it may be wise to laminate before gameplay so the cards last a long time.
If they do, it will be well worth having. It’s a hilarious game to play! Available Here…Price is – $19.99
Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table. Their teammates try to guess words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. Or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.
Product Review :- This is the new “cards against humanity” game at my house in terms of its popularity. Every party I host turns into a codenames night.
This is great to help bond people you love who are barely meeting each other. For example, somehow my bff and my mom who speaks English as a second language were able to bond and develop their own system to win every time!
It’s also a great game to share with people who already have a bond to play cards with their own inside jokes.
If you like hosting game nights or are trying to blend different people in your life at a party, I highly recommend using this game to help create those bonds! Enjoy! Get One…Price is – $19.95
Plot, scheme, and deceive as you build fantastical cities in Citadels, Bruno Faidutti’ s classic game of card drafting, intrigue, and cunning characters.
In Citadels, two to eight players must shrewdly draft characters and use their abilities to create the most lavish, profitable city possible.
This edition includes all the content from the previous editions by fantasy flight games, along with new characters and districts developed by the original designer.
Updated graphic design and all-new art brings to life an inviting realm rich in diversity and filled with possibilities.
Product Review :- This game is really fun. I played it with 7 people and it was a ton of fun! The first round went a little slowly as we figured out the game play, but once we got the hang of it alliances were forged and broken, people were angered, and we had a great game night.
Every round plays out differently and that is super fun.
It also comes with suggestions for altering the game play so every game is different. I highly recommend this for board gamers who want something a little different. Available Here…Price is – $26.99
Travel Scavenger Hunt is the ultimate boredom beater and the perfect passenger for your next family road trip! To play, each player takes five cards and tries to locate various roadside objects.
In addition, several funny “Hear It”, “Feel It”, and “Smell It” cards encourage kids to use all their travel senses by listening for sounds, feeling for bumps, and sniffing for scents.
Even the most restless traveler will enjoy coming along for the ride!
Product Review :- This game is so much fun! My 8 year old used to complain about being bored in the car. After we get tired of telling her to look out the window, we usually hand her the iPad to keep herself entertained. But now we have this awesome game!
We keep it in the back seat and play any time our car trips last more than 30 minutes or so. We usually pair up so the driver can play too.
We all end up laughing and being silly…it truly creates some wonderful family memories. Even my 17 year old enjoys playing! I wish there was an expansion pack. Buy One…Price is – $4.97
Colors may vary. Let us choose for you. Long before videogames and computerized toys ruled the world, playing cards were entertaining children and adults the world over.
Play bridge, poker, go fish, or a thousand different variations of solitaire. You’ll never play the same game twice. Bicycle’s rider back deck is air cushioned for easy shuffling and dealing.
Product Review :- Nothing to report here other than great consistency from Bicycle. (I am a card magic guy, so my comments about the boxes only pertain to that.)
I do wish they would specify which “tuck” is in each box of cards as the anniversary decks tuck boxes are hard to use for a couple of tricks I like to do.
I cant complain about the cards though. Still great. Still the most recognized and trustworthy card to users and spectators. Get One…Price is -$5.27
Start down the colourful road to sweet surprises in this classic Candy Land game that features the fun illustrations and gingerbread man movers that kids love.
Players draw colourful cards to guide their mover along the rainbow path to luscious locations such as Peppermint Forest, Lollipop Palace, and Licorice Lagoon!
It’s such sweet fun as players race to be the first one to reach King Kandy’s Castle to win! For 2-4 players.
Product Review :- When looking to buy Candyland for my son I was sad to hear that the newer versions of the game have a spinner rather than cards and that the characters have changed and are overly sexualized.
I ended up with this versions and am happy with it. It has cards and while some of the characters are different from what I remember, they are not dressed in lingerie with lollipops over their breasts.
My 4 year old lives this game and it’s a great introduction into board games. Taking turns, matching colors, following rules, and sometimes losing are all great skills he is acquiring by playing this game. Available Here…Price is – $12.99

It’s no surprise that Rummikub is so popular – it has all the elements that make a great game: it’s easy to learn and fast moving, it’s different every time it’s played, it combines luck and strategy, and it changes quickly so every player has a chance to win until the very end.
Players take turns placing numbered tiles in runs (consecutive numbers of the same color) and groups (three or more of the same number in different colors), Rummy style.
The “board” continually changes as players adjust the tiles on the table. The Joker tiles add to the fun and can be played as any color or number.
Be the first player to play every tile on your rack to win! Rummikub includes 106 high quality plastic tiles, 4 plastic tile-holder racks, and complete illustrated instructions. For 2-4 players, ages 8 and up.
Product Review :- I bought this as a gift to give to a friend. We have been playing Rummikub for years. It’s always one of our favorite “go-to” games.
It’s challenging but no so much that you cannot socialize between plays. This game is a good for people who do not like to play cards or like regular board games.
It reminds me of Phase 10 in that you have to create sets and runs with the tiles but there are not different levels to complete or advance to.
Because it’s only for a maximum of 4 players, we often have team play when there’s more than 4 people. That creates a fun scenario as well.
We like this game so much that we have a travel edition that we pack when we go on weekend getaways with family or friends.
I would definitely recommend this game. It’s fun and easy to learn and will provide years of enjoyment. Available Here…Price is – $11.97

Product Review :- My son loves UNO. We have UNO Attack, UNO Wild Jackpot , regular UNO now Giant UNO.

Product Review :- This is a fantastic learning game for toddlers and preschool kids. My son first played it when he was 3 at his cousin’s house and that is when I decided to purchase it myself.
You basically lay out 2 cards and they have to find the item that is on both cards. The items are all different sizes so the kids can’t just look for an exact replica.
My son loves to play it by himself at home as well, kind of like eye spy. There are fewer items on the JR cards as opposed to the regular spot it games which make it a little easier for younger kids as well.
I’ve also found it’s helpful for learning animal names/colors as well because we ask him to say the animal name out loud when he finds it. Available Here…Price is – $10.39
