Get Your Family Game On with Hasbro


As my regular readers and friends know, in
our house, board games and games in general are always fun and special shared time.

So many memories of family time involve board games (Monopoly, Life, and Clue to name a few) and now with my husband and our friends we’ve built upon that with Taboo, Funny or Die and the classic and oh-so-fun Twister!

Going out is indeed great fun with friends, but staying in and playing some classic (and trying some new) board games is always a fun time.

How do the best games nights go? Well, as much as hubby and I enjoy actually playing against each other, having friends over definitely adds to the fun.

Our ingredients for a Great Games Night:
Invite some great friends (or of course, have the family over)
Plan some yummy snacks (see the book in the picture for tips)
Pick some great games
Let the fun begin!

Games where teams form are always fun, but so are board games, it all depends on the group at the time. A few favourite board games of ours are Clue, Minion Operation and of course Monopoly. And a new couple favourites for even more fun are Funny or Die and Taboo. Hubby and I admit, Taboo when we tried it out was immediately acquired.

The last long-weekend of the summer is upon us, and what better time to have your own games night than this.

Which games will you choose? What’s your favourite party snack? I’m thinking outdoor Twister followed by some Funny or Die and Taboo with ‘Itty Bitty BLT’s’ :).

What are YOU doing New Year’s Eve?

We are on the cusp on another New Year and there is still time to put together an awesome evening to welcome it.
I must say, for us, it’ll be a movie-marathon and board game evening for sure. In my twenties I was all about going out and dressing up, now, having a games night is just more appealing (it also helps that it’s minus 10C here).
We were treated to a games night by Hasbro recently and had a beyond fun time!
There were several great party games set up, and actually a great party too! Hubby and I tried out Jenga first, we love head-to-head challenges, he usually wins, and did this time too, but we’re having a re-match ;). The giggle-fits were priceless! Even our hosts couldn’t figure out how that tower hadn’t fallen at one point!
Next up we tried out Funny or Die. A riot, you caption the photos and then vote on which is best. For a few members of our personal circle of friends, this is PERFECT!
Then we tried out Taboo. Wow. Awesome! You get into pairs and then prompt your partner to guess the word on your card but you can’t use any of the descriptive words on the no list. We didn’t do too great on our first round, but we gained ground fast. This one is a new favourite on our game shelf now.
A few of these games, good company, and fun (and simple) munchies is my perfect recipe for New Year’s Eve!
Welcome 2014!
P.S. A now fave appetizer that we had at the event and we will be having is a grilled cheese sandwich cut up into small pieces and topped with a taste of either ketchup or a sauce of your choosing. I cannot tell you how yummy and perfect that was! Enjoy!
