KLASK Board Game Review & Giveaway

KLASK board game

Growing up I loved going over to my friend’s house to play air hockey. I always thought it was so cool that he had an air hockey table. And I longed for the day when I’d be able to get my own air hockey table.

Well, I still don’t have an air hockey table.

But I do have plenty of other things to play with my kids.

And now this includes what I like to imagine as our mini air hockey table – KLASK.

Want zombies on your road trip? Try Hit Z Road

Hit Z Road board game

I’m sure you’ve heard the popular saying when trying to outrun a bear, “You don’t have to be faster than the bear, you just have to be faster than the other guy.”

Well, the same could be said for outrunning zombies.

At least that’s what I think every time I play the recently released board game, Hit Z Road by Asmodee.

In Hit Z Road, players are taking a road trip across the United States while trying to outlast the zombie attacks along the way. And in order to win, a player has to stay just one step ahead of the other players.

How would you do on such a road trip?

 

Can you survive the Dead of Winter?

Dead of Winter board game

Dead of Winter is a cooperative board game where players are a group of survivors trying to last through the winter after a zombie apocalypse.

Like most cooperative board games, players are trying to complete a common objective. However, even though everyone is working together to complete a main objective, players also have their own secret objectives to complete. Only players who complete their secret objective will win.

Will you be able to survive the Dead of Winter?

Speechless = fun charades without talking

Speechless party game

In Speechless, players all take their turn at acting. However, when it’s a player’s turn, they have a limited time to act out 6 words for everyone else to guess.

Instead of shouting out answers, each player has a dry erase board with 6 lines. They only write down a single word for each thing the person acts out.

So instead of getting closer and closer to the right words by elimination, players just make their best guess and move on.

After the timer runs out, the actor reads the words they were acting out and the other players score their answers.
