Spot It

Spot it is made by Blue Orange. 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. Zayden started playing at age 4. Most themes you don’t need to know how to read to match even if its a word that they can’t read we allow pointing for the younger kids.

I love that they are in a tin and very travel friendly. Anyce takes these games to ballet and other events where the kids have extra time to hang out. All of her friends enjoy Spot it and have asked her to continue to bring it along. I would say the chances of you replaying this game multiple times is quite high. There are many different ways you can play. Down below is a picture explaining a few of the ways you can play.

Blue Orange has released so many different themes, you’ll find at least one you will like. They even have educational choices such as numbers, letters, shapes and words We currently have 4 editions and still want more!  Let us know which on is your favorite!

Rory Story Cubes

One of our all time favorite games is Rory Story Cubes. This is a must for family game nights. Its fun, entertaining and never the same. It works for all ages, as the kids don’t have to know how to read. It is simply rolling the dice and making a story based off of the images you see. We also like to use these cubes for icebreakers. When we have parties with kids who don’t all know each other. Using story cubes gets all the kids interacting with each other and the laughs started.  Who can make the silliest or the scariest story? Let your imagination run crazy!

They have a few editions. Story Cubes, Story Cubes Actions and Story Cubes Voyages. These 3 games include 9 dice each. They have now released Clues, Enchanted and Prehistoria. These I consider them expansions as they only come with 3 dice each.  You can you use all of the sets separately or combined. We like to mix it up and play with different cubes each time we play. Pictures down below.

They will be releasing a BATMAN edition! I am over the moon excited about it! We all love super heroes, especially Batman.I can’t wait to get my hands on it.  We will be posting pictures and a video review, once we have it. Hopefully your family enjoys Story Cubes as much as we do!
