Game Giveaway

How about we do a little giveaway on this fabulous Friday?  I always think it's fun to break up the regularly scheduled programming!  You know what else is fun?? Family game night! Our kids are still too little for 100% participation, but the big kids are really starting to get into board games.  So today- in the name of family togetherness- I'm giving away...



AND

Mastermind Towers and Mastermind!  I love educational games.  Both of these games are designed to help develop logical thinking and deductive reasoning.  Mastermind is for ages 8+.  My kids are a little young for it but it is really neat.  It is a code breaking game and kind of reminds me of a more intricate Battleship game.  Perfect for older elementary kids- and way better for their brains than mindless video games and TV!

But the game that impressed my socks off was the Mastermind Towers game- designed for little kids (ages 6+).  I am always leery of age requirements because some of my kids lag behind on age appropriate skills.  But this game can be geared up or down for age/developmental appropriateness and special needs.  The premise of the game is to use reasoning skills to guess what order your opponent has put their animal cards in.  The instructions for the game say to use 5 cards.  But we very easily adapted the game for our younger kids by only using 3 cards.  I LOVE games that you can do this to.  (Keeps me from playing a certain color orientated "land of sweets" game a million times a day, too!) 

Both of the games are of very sturdy construction.  Cards are sturdy, heavy cardboard and are really durable.  They could stand up to classroom use- if I were a teacher I would totally have these in my classroom! Super fun and super educational. 

We had a great time playing them with our kids!  Family time without being plugged into something is absolutely priceless.  Here are my boys doing a totally cheesy promotional photo (yes, my husband will be mortified- but he's cute, isn't he?):
