Games for the winter blues .@pressmantoy .@GoliathGamesUS #familyfriendly

 Googly Eyes

Googly Eyes is the hilarious family game that challenges your vision and leaves you googling for more! Put on the zany, vision-altering google eye glasses and start to draw while your team tries to guess what you’re drawing. Is that an igloo or a turtle? A birthday cake or a fortress? Players take turns drawing and guessing, so everyone gets a chance to wear the glasses. The glasses come with three sets of lenses that range from mild changes to mind-blowing fun, so no one can see (or draw) straight–your vision will bounce off of the lenses. Googly Eyes is a fun twist on classic drawing games that lets players of different ages and skill levels compete on equal terms, since the goggles make it fun and challenging for everyone.
 Build or Boom

The big boss is looking for the best builders in town! Step in line and see who can be the first to bring the blueprint cards to life. Build your structure quickly yet carefully on your platform. Then SMASH your boomer to send your opponent’s structure tumbling. There’s only room for one builder in this town… do you have what it takes? Or will you get boomed on your way to the top?

Helps build STEM skills such as analytical thinking and shape recognition.
Unique game play that doesn’t need batteries!
High-quality components with bright, vibrant colors.
 Cassandra's Review- Build or boom was a lot of fun, the older kids even challenged themselves by using the platform upside down.  This takes skill and balance but you can decide to dynamite or work together to have the most fun.
 Greedy Granny

Take the treats without making a peep with Greedy Granny! Granny loves her sweets, but she’s not so great at sharing. As she snoozes, spin the treat wheel to see which sweet to swipe. Be quiet…one wrong move will wake Granny up and send her teeth flying! Be the first player to collect one of each of her treats to win the game! For 2 to 4 players, ages 4 and up.

Cassandra's Review-- Granny creates a real jumper as she wakes up randomly and spits out her teeth.  It is exciting and fast moving. I like that any skill level can play and it is super easy. 

You’re going to read some really messed up stuff on these cards, and then rank them based on how bad they really are. Is a 3rd degree sunburn better or worse than seeing your father naked? Is it worse than dropping your phone in the toilet? Rank the card, and if our Misery Index agrees with you, you get to keep it. Correctly rank 10 cards and you win.

This game includes:

200 PG-13 friendly (but still pretty awful!) event cards
Fun for the whole family! Giggle your way through a gaggle of disasters
PG-13 friendly instruction manual

Cassandra's Review-  The game actually teaches while you play.  It can show you what is real misery in a plain to see way.  Some of the misery made the kids laugh a bit, but only because of the bizarre factor not the actual misery,   There is no time limit and if the kids are old enough to read as well as reason this is going to be a great game.  Now if your players have an excellent memory for numbers you may only be able to play a few times, but it is still super fun.
