The Presidental Election can be confusing to children (and adults!). My children have had so many questions this campaign year. "What are the Republican and Democratic parties?", "How does a vote count?", "What are swing states?", and "What are electoral votes?". We found an amazing game, Election Night, that helped open up conversations and … [Read more...]

Over father's day weekend my family went to New Jersey to visit my Mom Mom, Pop Pop, Aunt, Uncle and cousins. It got a bit cool out so we all took a break from the pool. We weren't sure what to do, so I pulled out a new game I just got, Stuff Happens. It said it was for 13 and up, so the little kids paired up with the older ones playing. We had the … [Read more...]

As if my kids didn't already have enough ways to play Fortnite, they are going to definitely be through the moon to hear that it's now apparently coming to the Nintendo Switch! I read all about it on the Verge this morning. It's apparently "leaked" news but coming soon as several reliable sources like Cnet, Variety and about a bazillion other … [Read more...]

I just wanted toshare a couple of fun photos of my 5 year old nephew playing with the game Gooey Louie over the weekend. This game is hysterical - you have to pull boogers out of his nose to play the game. One person will pull "the" booger that causes his brain to pop out of his head and shoot into the air. My guys played this with their cousin … [Read more...]

My guys have been all over playing with our Nintendo Switch, even more than usual, thanks to our trip to Nintendo HQ in Redmond last week. The timing had worked out well too because I had gotten a few sample games in the mail the week before we left so they were loaded up on new games to try and play. With the holidays coming, I wanted to … [Read more...]

Hey guys! I'm still getting adjusted to being back home and on East coast time after a couple of fun-filled days out in the Seattle area. We were invited back to Nintendo headquarters in Redmond, WA, which is like a dream come true for our little gaming family. {You can read my review from our 2016 trip here} Nintendo is the favorite in our … [Read more...]

Sharing some quick photos from a game we played at the beach a couple of weeks back: Who's the Dude. It's your classic charades game with a twist - act out clues using the inflatable "Dude" that comes with the game. Seems pretty simple and silly, right? It was good for many laughs throughout the week with family. The kids and family … [Read more...]

My boys spent all free waking time they had last weekend playing with their new Nintendo Switch. After I waited in line in the cold for it, they better have! We got three games to start with the Switch - the new Legend of Zelda Game, Breath of the Wild, Super Bomberman and 1-2 Switch. A lot of friends have been asking me about it, since it … [Read more...]

Truth be told, I should have known it was going to be a scene when I left my house this morning to pick up the Nintendo Switch, which released today, March 3. We hadn't pre-ordered. I had intended to do it at my local GameStop but by the time I got around to it, they were sold out of their pre-order slots. I didn't even think I'd be that person … [Read more...]
