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’ :).

Like, comment and share and you may just win a fantastic ‘Get Your Game On’ prize pack ;). ***Canada Only


Easter Excitement with Target and Hasbro and Nonmom, Oh My!

Easter is coming and I must admit, it’s one of my favourite holidays. It always has been. I think I’ve told you about the strategy sessions and house divisions my sister and I applied to our egg-hunts. We had an absolute blast, and so did mom and dad watching us. Now the training has begun with her kids, poor bunny had a brief reprieve but now we’re training the next generation ;).

But it wasn’t just about the hunt, E.B. was always kind to us and we got a toy or two as well. E.B. also left us a lot of games and Connect 4 battles continue to this day that began one Easter (not so long ago). I remember one year getting a travel version of Battleship and the many many many games that were played on that at the boat and in the car too.

It was a great holiday, always. And it has always been about light-hearted fun for my family. We really did have a lot of it and that’s where my awesome friends at Hasbro, and my new friends at Target Canada come in!

To help you with your Easter fun, we’re having an awesome giveaway here on the blog that is definitely E.B. approved for maximum fun!

Hasbro Target Hasbro Games

All that you see above is in the Hasbro and Target prize pack, and yes, a $50 gift card to the store (ask any of my friends where they can usually find me at least once a week) too for more Easter treats to help E.B. out a bit.

Some great games for the whole family including Connect 4 (again, the battles between my sis and I continue, she is the reigning champ), Twister, Mouse Trap (which I’m testing out with supervision from my cats who claim to be experts in the subject matter), Elefun and Friends Hungry Hungry Hippos, Jenga, Monopoly Junior,  and Disney Princess Pop-up Magic Castle Game.
