We finished schoolwork by lunchtime, so we had time for a playground trip followed by two rousing games of Catan before dinner. I may or may not have made both of my children cry during the first game. I made it up to them by choosing the worst starting settlements possible for our second game. #homeschool#homeschooling#familygames#family#catan#boardgames
Sea of Clouds is a pretty under-appreciated family-weight game. The art is beautiful and the primary mechanism of choosing a pile of loot or passing on it and making it better for the next player is quite clever and fun. I feel like crew cards are a bit over-powered, skewing the strategy a little, but the game is fast so it doesn't need to be perfectly balanced.
Omg, I can’t tell you how much fun I am having test playing content for the add-on Samitomato drawing game pack, due in September! It’s so funny! I particularly think older kids and teenagers will like this one! But who knows?! When I designed Samitomato originally, I didn’t think kids as young as 4yrs would have loved it as much as they do! So let the kids prove me wrong! 😄
This will be an add-on pack of ten yellow cards, that you can add to Edition1 or Edition2! I’ll be doing a fun crowdfund for it in July! Yipppeeee! 🦌
Ne kadar basit ama güzel bir oyun. 6 parçayı dengede tutacak şekilde masanın kenarına yerleştirmesi lazım. Kim bilir kaç kere deneyecek, yapamayacak, düşünüp baştan deneyecek ve sonunda keşfedecek. Kesin denemeliyiz!
En çok da yapıp ama masayı devirene bayıldım😂😍 #Repost @lego (@get_repost)

Ecco cosa vi consigliamo di portare in vacanza 😎 con voi questa settimana!
Noi ci abbiamo giocato ieri in giardino ed è stato 😆!! BAU BAU! In questo simpatico gioco ciascuno cerca di disfarsi per primo delle proprie orecchie di cane. Ma attenzione! Bisogna giocare per prima cosa le carte appese alle orecchie! Solo chi riesce a memorizzare quali orecchie di cane sono appese alle sue orecchie, e non si dimentica di giocarle al momento giusto, vince e diventa il miglior orecchio pendulo del 🌎!! Dai 5 anni!
SPOOKIES Nella notte di luna piena 🌕 la casa degli spettri 👻 appare ancora più terrificante del solito. Quattro intrepidi amici e il loro cane osano varcare comunque la soglia della catapecchia. Ma chi ha il coraggio di spingersi più in alto di tutti? Attenzione: chi troppo azzarda con i dadi rischia di dire presto addio alla vittoria. Inoltre, soppesate i rischi e raccogliete gli Spooky finché siete in tempo. Dagli 8 anni! PICASSIMO Tutti hanno la stoffa dell’artista! Con Picassimo i pennarelli disegnano allegramente, e lo scambio dei singoli pezzi produce veri e propri capolavori. Ma aspetta un attimo! Cos’è questo, un diavoletto? O piuttosto una gallina? Chi se la cava disegnare e si dimostra anche un abile intenditore di opere d’arte raccoglie il maggior numero di punti vince il gioco! Dagli otto anni!
RIGOROSAMENTE QUALITÀ HABA in versione ITALIANA! #haba#gdt#giocodatavolo#giochidatavolo#giochidisocietà#giocodisocietà#partygames#familygames#boardgames#giocoinscatola#cosamiportoinvacanza#orsopilota#consigli#giochi#giochiperbambini#giochiperragazzi#divertenti#baubau#picassimo#spookies @haba.de
Scribble rocks vs rainbow rocks tic-tac-toe 🌈 My daughter & my husband’s new favorite game is tic-tac-toe. He doesn’t do social media, so this is the closest I could get to posting a photo related to him. 😂Happy Father’s Day to all of the awesome dads out there! 💪🏼
Rainbow rocks inspired by @rainbowrockproject - swipe to see more. As you may have seen in my stories last week, my 4yo daughter & I were drawing rainbows, while my 20mo son was scribbling. Then she wanted to join him on the scribbling fun! We gave away most of the rainbow rocks, and the rest are our new toys 💝
Great news! The Samitomato Drawing Game is now available worldwide again!! So tell if you’ve got kids 4yrs+ who love to draw, but often can’t think WHAT to draw, this little creative game will give them 810,000 hilarious fun drawing combinations, keeping them happily creatively occupied for months! ❤️👏😍
Have you seen these two hooligans running around the shop? Most often doing WWE moves on the comfy chairs.... They've sort of become our little mascots. They run screaming into the arms of baristas, and use their high powered negotiating skills to get gelato. If you didn't already know, they belong to the manager and her roaster husband of #oddduckroastery . They are Odd Duck Coffee family, as are you, so say hello. Feel free to let your kids take part in their shenanigans in the space we've created just for littles on our new patio. 🙂🙃🙂
You can catch a couple of shots here of our games, I'm especially excited to finally see our tug of war in action and can't wait to see some more photos!!!!! #Repost @lmsweddings ・・・
Hopton Court was the beautiful setting for Alex and Joe's amazing rustic summer garden themed marquee wedding. A fantastic day finished off with an ice luge as a surprise from Joe to his gorgeous new wife. We had an amazing time ensuring the day ran smoothly.
Blog post coming shortly with details of the fab day.

We were lucky enough yesterday to secure one of the last slots to demo “Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr” a co-operative game by @wearehubgames where players work as nursing staff tasked with providing care for the terminally ill.
This is probably the most unique and thought provoking co-operative game we’ve ever come across. At first glance the theme may seem quite dark but it is carried out in a very thoughtful and benevolent way (though I understand at the same time it’s probably not for everyone).
There are 10 scenarios in the game offering great replay-ability. The art in the game is wonderful, especially the memory cards however these are being kept top secret for the moment to avoid spoilers!
Thank you to Michael and Rory for allowing us the opportunity to demo the game, we loved it and already want to know more! We’ll definitely be queueing to buy when it is released in October. ————————————————————————————
An overview of the story:
Your latest patient has been rushed in following a massive heart attack on a flight from Sydney to London. When the game begins, all you know is this - his name is Billy Kerr, he is sixty years old, and he has been given days to live.
Players must work together to provide Billy with appropriate care, responding to medical emergencies while gaining his trust. Over ten fully replayable Scenarios, players will need to piece together a lifetime of memories while being drawn deeper into his troubled past.
