Elementy by Gamematz is a fast pace push your luck card game. Which of course as a mat option!

Not only does Elementy have adorable artwork. It’s extremely fun. We have tested this game with kids ranging from age 5-13. They all enjoyed it. It has that Rock, Paper, Scissors meets Pokémon vibe.



START THE GAME by dividing the deck into half. Each player gets 3 of each element cards Flame, Leaf & Water) and 2 Wild Windy cards. Shuffle your deck workout looking and place them facing down. Draw the top three cards to start the battle. You may look at these cards as they are in your hand.

THE BATTLE  both players choose 1 of the cards in your hand  and place in facing down. Once both players cards are face down flip the cards over to see who won the battle. Before battling against each player draws another card from the top of their deck so they have 3 cards total in their hand.







THE WILD CARD is Wild Windy she is extremely unpredictable. To stop her at the opposing player must roll a 5 or 6 to win the battle.

THE TIE.  The best part of this game is the ROLL OFFS! If you and your opponentplay the same card. You must grab the dice and roll off. They player with the highest number wins!

THE WIN the player that wins the battle take their card and their opponents card place them in their discard pile facing up the game ends when there is no cards left who ever has the most cards in thier discard pile when the game!

I can not win for anything! Apparently I have no luck!  Which makes my kids love this game so much more!!



Minecraft The Card Game ?

Shuffle the cat box cards and place them around the kitty’s box side up.
Each player takes 1 box card and place it in front of themselves.
Shuffle the each of the kitty card levels into separate stacks. Face them down to make a draw pile I order of difficulty level.
Flip over the first 4 face up.


To start the game you will stack 1 of your paws in the center of the table and shout “KITTY PAW”
Each player then grabs 1 kitty card they want and place it in front of you. That will be the puzzle you try to complete.
Grabbing 1 kitty tile at a time. Players race to duplicate the puzzle on their kitty card.

If any players think they have completed their puzzle. That player shouts out “MEOW” and performs the lucky cat gesture.
All players stop. Perform the lucky cat gesture and touch the first “meow players” paw with a lucky paw meow. The last player to do this gets the victory points penalty (by flipping over your kitty card).
All player check to see if the first “meow players” puzzle is correct. If it is they will keep their kitty card and collect the victory points. If their puzzle is not correct they will then have to flip over their kitty card and take the victory points penalty.
You repeat the rounds again. Until a player has scored 5 victory points cards. The player with the most victory points win! MEOW!

Shopkins Spot it


This fun family friendly party game is now in the Shopkins theme! Shopkins is all the rave right now. Especially for girls in the 3rd grade like my daughter. This theme is perfect for Shopkins b-day parties and sleepovers! This is my daughters favorite Spot-it at the moment! We love it!

Spot it is a very quick game. You try to find the matches as fast as you can. Every card will have a match and only one match to each card. Even if you don’t see it. Sometimes it is hard to find the match. We love it because its a game all ages can play. Even though most Spot it’s recommend ages 7 & up. I would say most 3 year olds can play the game. This edition has no words to match, just images.

It’s your classic balance game. Be the last player to place a penguin on the boat without knocking them down to win! We use house rules only one loser.. the person who rocks the boat.

Don't Rock the Boat

Overall this cute game for families. We especially loved the theme!

Pie Face

It’s here the infamous PIE FACE! You know you have seen that video going around the inter-webs for awhile. It is re-released here in the USA! We just got this game today. Let me tell you it is FUN!

We love this game! Yes, I know then why did I rate it 4 stars.. the quality of the game is the only reason. I will list those reasons down below. First let’s talk about what we do love!

We love how much silly fun this game is! This game is one of those fun gimmick & nostalgic items. Does that mean bad.. not to us! Anything that has all the kids & adults laughing is a great thing.

This game is simply played.. Spin the spinner and land on a number. Then you have to turn the handles that number of times. Here is the tricky thing. The hand slaps at random numbers! We have had it slap the 1st turn of the handles and pass 9 turns. So who is going to get a face full of cream no one knows!!

Do we recommend this game YES! If your playing the MSPR price point you will get your money’s worth. Playing it till it breaks down.

The reason for 4 stars….

It’s cheaply made. You can see in our videos on youtube. It was falling apart on us. The face guard and handles kept coming off. If the handles would stay in during the whole game play. That alone I would have given it 5 stars. Having to stop and fix it over & over get boring. I also think the other of the head guard should be a girl or a girl head guard one should be included! Girls play games a lot especially in our household!

Plus side to it being made cheap. It all comes apart to be cleaned easily!

Here is a quick clip!

Cat Tower

We were the lucky winners of Cat Tower by Pandasaurus Games. Pandasaurus held a giveaway during their Kickstarter event. We actually won!! We are so excited. This was a game I didn’t want to wait for. The Designer, Aza Chen did an amazing job. These cats are so adorable they make you want to pick it up & play. I will be updating this post with a full review. For now I have a few pictures!

Anyce’s excitement could not be contained! Can you tell she loves cats.

Pokemon Game Factory

This is adorable-ness overload! I will use this an a desk game or just leave it unboxed on my game shelf. The theme is what makes this game. The Pikachu’s are pretty hard to stack. So far the most I can stack without dropping any is 3. It’s fun to try it out different ways. Everyone who see’s it thinks its adorable. So if you are or know a Pokemon lover, this is a great gift! Chapstick in picture to help you compare the size.

Animal Upon Animal

Animal Upon Animal is a beautifully crafted game by HABA. All of the pieces included are high quality wooden pieces. You can play with 2-4 players ages 4 & up. The player who is able to get rid of their animals first wins. Please keep in mind it is a shaking game and pieces do fall down. Some 4 yr olds may get upset. This is a great tool to help them learn that things don’t have to be perfect and can fall down. You can also make house rules if needed.


You will receive 29 animals and 1 die.

You will start the game off with a crocodile in the middle of the table. You will pick a 7 animals for your hand. You take turns rolling the die and taking the action the die gives you. Who ever gets rid of all of their animals first wins!

DOT: Stack any 1 of your animals onto the pyramid carefully with one hand.

TWO DOTS: Stack any 2 of your animals onto the pyramid carefully with one hand.

CROCODILE : Place any 1 of your animals next to the mouth or tail of the crocodile.

HAND: Choose any 1 of your animals and give it to another player. This player now has to place it onto the pyramid carefully with one hand.

THE QUESTION MARK: The other players choose which character you place onto the pyramid



If 1 or 2 animals have fallen off, the player who knocked them off has to keep them.

If more than have fallen off, the player who knocked them off has to keep 2 & place the rest in the box.

If the pyramid has collapsed, the player who knocked it down has to put the crocodile back in the center of the table, keep 2 animals and place the rest into the box.

If animals fall off on their own place them back into the box.
