The rest of us have posted lists as well, but they’re just not as popular as mom’s.
Perhaps moms are still the ones most on the lookout for great family board games.
The Discriminating Gamer updates his Top 100 games of all time.
But that also doesn’t stop us from tying.
Recently, I was invited by The Discriminating Gamer to join him for his final segment of his rundown of his Top 100 Games of All Time.
It’s a series of 10 videos where he runs through 10 different games starting with numbers 100 down to 91.
A few weeks ago I joined him as we counted down from 10 to 1 — describing why we love these games.
And last week he posted the video of us counting down our Top 10 Games. Check it out!
You may notice in the video, our lists are quite different. Much of that probably comes down to who we play most of our games with.
I’ve been familiar with Cody of The Discriminating Gamer for many years because he used to be in many plays at our top notch community theater, The Hale Center Theatre in Salt Lake City. We enjoyed watching him in a number of plays over the years.
Then a few years ago, I saw him pop up on YouTube as a board game reviewer and started enjoying his game video reviews. Since then we’ve met briefly a couple of times at SaltCon. And this year I finally started getting to a few of his regular game nights.
Anyway, he plays tons of games, produces great video reviews, has a discerning eye, and is a great guy. If you’re not familiar with his reviews, you can check them out at TheDiscriminatingGamer.com.
And if you haven’t yet watched the video and you’re a good guesser, perhaps this image will give you a hint to the games I share in the Top 10 Games of All Time video with Cody.
Wow has car racing come a long way since I was a kid!
Bridging video games, mobile games, and physical track car racing, Anki Overdrive is a ton of fun!
Or as we like to call it in our house, Mario Kart Live.
Why? Because Anki Overdrive is the modern way to race cars in your living room.
It’s an amazing racing system where the cars fly around a variety of tracks but players control their cars through their digital devices. And just like in racing video games, players earn points through their accomplishments on the track and use them to level-up their cars and equip them with all sorts of gadgets.
With Thanksgiving this week in the US, we want to take some time to express our gratitude.
There are so many things to be thankful for that this post could be a very long one.
But we’ll keep it short.
The first thing we’re most thankful for is our family. It’s not easy being a parent (or sibling) and some days are tougher than others, but it’s so worth it. There’s no other place where we can learn to love another so much as in our own homes.
So grateful for our family! It’s the best place to learn to love.
We’re also so thankful for our extended family. We were recently reminded of amazing family bonds at the funeral of one of my uncles. We may not see each other very often, but it’s so nice reconnecting with cousins and other family members.
Likewise we’re so grateful for the many friends and neighbors that have such a big impact in our lives. We’re continually inspired by great men, women, teenagers, and children we get to interact with on a regular basis. They make us want to be better every day.
While Doodle Quest is a fun drawing game and great for practicing spatial perception skills, Loony Quest amps up both the fun and the skill level to great effect.
And Loony Quest much better deserves its title of “Quest”.
Because in Loony Quest players have different goals to complete for experience points along the way — kind of like in a video game realm. The last level of each world also has a Boss for players to defeat.
