Holiday Game Gift Guide

BOARD GAME HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

 

Board games are the best gifts at Christmas because no matter who gets them, EVERYONE GETS TO ENJOY THEM!

In a season where families come together, there is nothing better than sitting around the table with family and friends enjoying good conversation, some snacks, and lots of laughter while playing games.

Below is a list of games that would look good under the tree or in a stocking this coming Christmas.

The game selections are followed by potential locations where you may acquire a copy.  These locations are: Locally –  Toys R Us (TrU), All A-Board Games (AAG), High Octane Comics (HOC), Chapters (Ch) and Tumbleweed Toys (TT).  Online – Amazon.ca (Am), StarlitCitadel.ca (SC), and Chapters.ca (Ch.ca) and GermanGames.com (GG).

Children’s Games

Sleeping Queens – Gamewright Games (TT, Am)

Designed by a 6 year old girl, this card game is quick and fun.  The player to wake up the mostQueenswins.  Each Queen has her own special powers.

Rattlesnake – Fantasy Flight Games (AAG,SC, GG)

Roll a dice and place a rattlesnake egg on the board.  The eggs are powerful magnets that attract each other.  Make sure you don’t attract any other eggs!!!  The winner is the player who places all their eggs on the board first.  An excellent dexterity game for children 6 and up.

Spot It! – BlueOrange Games (TT, Ch, SC, Ch.ca, Am)

A great recognition game!  Every card has one shape that is identical.  Will you be able to see your match first?  Lots of fun for all the family with several rule variants to give different twists to each game.

Loopin’ Louie – TCG (TrU)

If there is one children’s game you get this Christmas then THIS IS THE GAME!  Trust me when I see your kids will play this non-stop and then after they are in bed it is the adults’ turn!
