- Family Games -
We grew up playing games. Long nights (until 9:00pm!) playing Rack-o, Bingo, Clue, Scrabble, and countless others. We have put together a large collection of these games from yesterday, as well as a lot of those games which have captured the affection of families over the past decade. We pair these classic games with newer familiar titles like Apples to Apples, Cranium, and Jenga to make sure that everyone can find at least one title in our library that they are familiar with and able to play.
If you have favorites from your childhood you'd like us to hunt down, let us know. This section will grow a lot as we do, because we want this to reflect your nostalgia as well as ours!
Junk Art - Everyone has played Jenga. The problem with it, though, is you are highly restricted in how you are able to build. The meaningful choices are in tapping the side of the tower to see where a slippery piece might be. Junk Art throws that out the door, by allowing players to construct awesome art installations out of odds and ends. With about a dozen different ways to score, there is a ton of game in this box.
Kismet - This is a game that has been in print since 1963. It's basically Yahtzee, only you'll quickly notice that the dice have colors as well. This allows the introduction of additional ways to score, and getting closer to the game of Poker than Yahtzee would be able to. If you like dice rolling and want a vintage feel, check this game out!
The Omega Virus - Much to the chagrin of my parents, this was probably my favorite game growing up. It is a deduction game where you are going around a space station while a killer AI is shutting down the base. You need to collect the tools to shut it down before the time runs out. Plus, it has a great early 90's era 'app' running the show.
