New Games from Winning Moves for Family Game Night
Earlier this year my family and I made a commitment to having family game night every Friday night. We figured it would be a fun way for us to spend time together as a family while discovering games from my husband and I’s childhood. One of our favorite places to shop for games is Winning Moves, they always have the best games in stock. They reached out asking if we wanted to try some of their 2017 additions and we jumped at the opportunity.
Winning Moves recently added games like, Rubik’s Build It Solve It, Rubik’s Bear, Rubik’s Triamid, Cranium Cadoo, a fun party game Sunk!, Nibbled, Game Of the States, This Game Is Bonkers! Of course we wanted to try them all but we received three games to try. My family and I ended up with Nibbled, Cranium Cadoo, and Sunk!.
The kids couldn’t wait for game night the week the box arrived on our doorstep. These were more geared towards kids so I knew they would have fun. My oldest two could play all three games while my younger two were looking at the Nibbled and Sunk! games. Family Game Night has been a blast since we added all these games, find out why.
Nibbled is a fast-paced, easy-to-learn game that starts with kids clipping 4 plastic fish onto themselves. Guess a color – flip a card. Guess correctly – unclip one fish and clip it onto an opponent. Winner is the first player to unclip all their fish!
My husband ended up playing Nibbled with out six year old and our three year old. Our six year old had Autism and it was hilarious to him. He loved putting the fishes on his brother and father but also enjoyed being nibbled. I loved that it incorporated learning about colors which is something we are practicing with both of them. Our six year old is much better with his colors so he did well with the game. When it’s time to choose a game each week they both reach for Nibbled first. The game is very easy to learn and the instructions were straightforward so it was perfect for the smaller kids.
A unique social, skill and action game where the task is to add water – one drop at a time – to the cup floating in the water filled Sunk tank, without causing it to sink.
This was by far the messiest game we had, and it’s all because of my kids. My son with Autims loved playing with the water in regards to the game but could care less about the rules. LOL. He was more focused on pouring the water all the time. With Sunk! it worked better with the older kids because they could actually focus on pouring the water one drop at a time. The main objective is to not sink the floating cup and I found my younger kids just didn’t subscribe to that rule of play. Overall it was a fun and challenging game but it’s definately for kids that are old enough to understand the rules and stick to them.
The original version is back by popular demand and todays kids will be puzzling, sketching, sculpting, acting and code-cracking with the Cranium Cadoo game.
Talk about a mind twisting game. Cranium Cadoo really had us all thinking and using our noggin. We played this game with my one of my nephews and the two older kids. After a few tries of learning all the rules we were ready to tackle the game. Once the game started we were all having a blast and getting creative and fun. I was responsible for keeping time just to make sure it was done because the kids would forget. I was surprised that my nine year old ended up winning over myself, his older sister, and my nephew, since we are all older than him. Whenever we’re looking for some challenging fun we break out the Cranium Cadoo for game night.
We had a blast with our games from Winning Moves and we’re excited to learn about their new additions for Fall 2017, one of the games is a Monoply game that was orginally introduced in 1985. To learn more about Winning Moves Games visit them online.
