Games and Puzzles

I can't think of a single argument why we shouldn't play games. Games and Puzzles are a great way to interact with your friends and family. Besides, who doesn't enjoy a little friendly competition during game night? Here are some great games and puzzle you may want to consider for your next gathering.

Photosynthesis by Blue Orange Games is a 2018 Mensa Select Winner. And 2017 Golden Geek Best Family Board Game Nominee. The sun shines brightly on the canopy of the forest, and the trees use this wonderful energy to grow and develop their beautiful foliage. Sow your crops wisely and the shadow of your growing trees could slow your opponents down, but don't forget that the sun revolves around the forest. This green strategy board game is great for ages 10 and up!

Forbidden Desert by Gamewright is a thematic sequel to Forbidden Island. Players take on the roles of brave adventurers who must throw caution to the wind and survive both blistering heat and blustering sand in order to recover a legendary flying machine buried under an ancient desert city. For ages 10 and up.

A game for the 18+ crowd is Bards Dispense Profanity: a Party Game Based on the Works of William Shakespeare put out by whysoever games. This is a party game in which you use direct quotations from Shakespeare's plays to propose answers to mock-serious questions. It's a hilarious game about playing irreverently with words and meanings.

A puzzle recommendation from boswellian Conrad: Vintage Library by Phat Dog  "Perfect for the holidays. It has all the elements that make working a puzzle fun."  This 1000 piece foil stamped puzzle would make a great gift for the puzzle lover in your life.
Another new party game is Coaster games by Ginger Fox. This is a set of 25 double-sided cardboard party coasters. Worthy of adorning any coffee or dining table, this eclectic collection of games and challenges will keep visitors of all ages entertained, puzzled or simply in hysterics!

And for the younger crowd:

Where's Mr. Wolf? by Blue Orange Games is an entertaining cooperative game for ages 4 and up. Work together to help all the farm animals get back to their barns for the night before Mr. Wolf comes around!&nbspKeep an eye out for him as you flip over the animal tokens. Every time you find Mr. Wolf, he creeps one space closer, and every time you find a farm animal, try to remember to which barn they belong. Fill the barns before Mr. Wolf comes around, and you all win!

Monkey Around: The Wiggle & Giggle Game by Peaceable Kingdom for ages 2 and up. Monkey Around is a wonderful first board game for kids that was created specifically for you and your two year old. Kids love getting to move about while playing a game!
And last but not least, these 500 piece puzzles from Hanmade Milwaukee make a perfect gift and souvenir! Easy enough for kids, but challenging for serious puzzlers. Interesting shaped pieces and unusual sizes make this a great family activity at the cabin or cottage-or anywhere, anytime!
