When did Butch Cassidy form the Wild Bunch?

How many movies did Ronald Reagan appear in?

You  may not know the answers to these questions. But that’s perfectly okay in the new trivia party game America by Bezier Games.

Because in America close counts!

Crazy Karts is chaotic kart racing!

Crazy Karts board game

Ready for a Crazy Kart race?

Mario Kart tournaments have been one of our fun Thanksgiving traditions we look forward to every year. We’ve enjoyed many extended family Thanksgiving weekends racing and battling with turtle shells and banana peels flying all over the place.

A couple years we even set up multiple game systems where losers would move down one TV and winners would move up. We had such a blast with cousins and uncles hooting and hollering race after race and battle after battle.

So when I heard that Crazy Karts from Portal Games was like Mario Kart in board game form, I could hardly contain my excitement. Now was our chance to battle it out on the table instead of the screen!

It may have taken a bit longer to get a copy than I had hoped. But I finally bought a copy of Crazy Karts at the Portal Games booth at Gen Con 2016.

And since the game can play up to 8 players, I wanted our first experience to be a full one – and a Guys Game Night was the perfect chance for it.

So now that we’ve taken Crazy Karts through its paces, the big question is – does it live up to my grand expectations?

Board Game Calendar and Gaming Goals

Scott King Gaming Calendar

Scott King’s Gaming Calendar rocks!

Do you think having a board game calendar on the wall would get you to play more games?

Well, we’ll know by the end of 2017.

That’s because this year I’ve got one of Scott King’s awesome board game calendars hanging in my home office where I see it every day.

I first found out about these calendars a couple years ago and thought they sounded and looked so cool. Scott King’s photography is beautiful and his board game photos are the best around.

So when Scott started his Kickstarter campaign last summer for 2017 calendars, I dove right in.

And I’m so glad I did – because the calendar is fantastic!

Set Sail with some Vikings on Board

Vikings on Board board game

Who’s ready to pillage and wrestle control from the other Vikings?

A couple months ago we presented our Favorite Family Board Games from A – Z.

Today we’re excited to share more details about our favorite board game starting with the letter “V” – Vikings on Board!

Vikings on Board was showcased at Gen Con 2016 by one of our favorite family game publishers, Blue Orange Games. In fact, they had a super-sized version of Vikings on Board as the centerpiece of their display.

The large Vikings and ships were great attention-getters. And the simple game play generated a lot of interest.

In Vikings on Board, players maneuver for control of the many ships docked in the harbor to score points from supplies once a ship sets sail. It’s an action-selection game where turn-order changes every round and players alter the state of the game with every choice.

If you like a little chaos mixed in with your choices, then Vikings on Board may be just the family board game you’re after.
