Gigamons Review @BlueOrangeGames

Master the Magic of the Elemons

Gigamons is a memory game where you will enjoy matching and collecting Elemons to activate their superpowers. Every two Elemons unveiled unleashes a magical spell to hinder your opponents or aid your quest, and every three Elemons collected will summon a mighty Gigamon. This game will have you embark on a magical journey in this artfully mastered, creative world where memory is the key to success.



On your turn, you will look at 2 of the face-down Elemons on the table, revealing them to all players. When you find a pair of Elemons, you will earn them and also invoke their unique special power, giving you an advantage for the rest of the game. Every three of the same Elemon you find, will summon the corresponding Gigamon to your side. And when you have 3 Gigamons, you win the game! Gigamons is a game artistically designed to engage the player’s imagination and carry them away to a new world.

Cassandra's Review-  The game is very challenging for my memory, but the younger kids had a really good time playing.    It blends the match game with elemental monsters that are cute.   Everything from the set up to the gameplay was simple, except you need to have a really good memory to win.  

You can also alter the rules for children with special needs so everyone can have fun.  The characters are well created and colorful.  One of the kids playing said the name of the game reminded them of another game with digital monsters.  

Top That! Game Review @BlueOrangeGames

Match the Stack in this Magical Act



Top That! is a magical match-up themed after everyone's favorite act! You and your opponents race to stack your magician’s tools according to the images on the challenge card. But the real magic happens when the images are painted in gray or dazzled in stars! If an item appears gray on the card, it must be hidden inside another prop, and if the item is surrounded in stars it must be empty for the grand magical reveal. Use sleight of hand to stack fast and wow the crowd with the final magic act!

Cassandra's Review- The game is cute for all ages, but the quicker you are the better your odds of winning.  I could not win again the kids.  Everyone can have fun, but it can be a bit discouraging for special needs children if they can not go fast in play.  I am always able to modify rules and so the game was a huge hit.  I allowed the kids to go at their own pace and learn to stack and keep things steady.  

If playing by the rules it gets your heart pumping and I was quickly tired after five rounds.  The only request the kids had was that the bunny have eyes because the figurine does not and they thought it was creepy.  The game is simple to learn and after reading the instructions the game lasted for about eight minutes.   You do have the option of changing the rules and rounds to your families need levels.  







Wristboom Bluetooth speaker #ad

WRiSTBOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in just the year 2013, there were nearly half a million emergency room visits due to bicycle-related injuries, and over 900 bicyclists were killed.

With laws varying by geographic location, it’s important that cyclists and runners stay informed and protected. Here are some tips to do just that:

Know the laws and guidelines for where you will be cycling or running. This is especially important if you will be taking a vacation and getting some exercise. Even places such as Quebec in Canada have laws against using headphones while cycling. Knowing the laws will help you avoid getting tickets.

Even if there are no laws regarding headphones in your state, if you choose to wear them opt for using only one. That will leave one ear free for hearing traffic and what is going on around you.

Seek out an alternative to listening to music in your ears while you are bicycling or running, such as wearing the Wristboom.
WRiSTBOOM Splash, Water-Resistant Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

 The Wristboom is a watch-style Bluetooth speaker that gives people the ability to wear it while cycling, running, and walking. It’s water-resistant (for sweat) and provides a safe way for people to listen to a personal music device as they are engaging in the physical activities they enjoy.WRiSTBOOM Splash, Water-Resistant Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
Runners who are signing up for marathons, especially if they are in states they don’t reside in, should check the rules regarding headphone or earbud use for the run. There are many marathons today that don’t allow headphone use, so you will want to consider alternatives, such as the Wristboom option.
WRiSTBOOM Charging Cable
“These new laws may be an inconvenience for some people, but there are alternatives so that they can keep listening to their favorite tunes as they run or cycle,” added Bracke. “It will help keep them safer and they will be used to the new laws before they know it. It’s important to keep up on what’s going on with it, so that people stay informed.”

Cassandra's Review-   This Bible is the perfect gift for a child of any age because it has so many devotionals that will give an uplifting treat for every day.   It is easier to understand so that kids will not have to ask adults for help, but at the same time you can choose to spend some time with them and also grow in faith.

God Made You Just Right by Jill Roman Lord Tour @Worthypub

A bright and cheerful reminder that God made each of us special and unique
Here is a message that every parent will want to share with his or her child: You're brilliantly created and there's no one else like you! With easy-to-understand descriptions and simple, rhyming text, Jill Roman Lord shares the message that God created each of us in just the right way in a manner that even the youngest child will understand. 

Bright and engaging illustrations from Amy Wummer pair perfectly with the text and enhance the appeal of the book. Ages 2-5. 

ill Roman Lord is an author, a freelance writer, and nurse anesthetist. She enjoys running with her golden Retriever, Poppie, in Charlotte, NC, golfing with her hubby and son, sipping coffee, shopping with her girls when they’re around, traveling, and hanging on the back porch with family and friends.

Cassandra's review-  A cute children's book with a strong message.  Even though it is a shorter read, you can open a discussion and really get the most out of what the author has taken the time to create.  Little ones will be able to easily understand this well written book.
