During the holidays we were invited to the Winning Moves Head Quarters to try out some new games they have ready to hit the shelves for kids. It was a rainy day but we got there in time and we were all excited to start playing! We usually like to play Monopoly or Connect 4 at home but we were in the mood for something new.
Here is Mia playing the Crazy Cubes game. Crazy Cubes come in two different styles - Disney Princesses or Marvel Avengers (shown below). The aim of the game was to be the first to match 5 cubes in a row on your side whilst knocking out the cube affecting your opponent. This was fun for Elijah too and he won one game. The great thing is that this also folds up into a small compartment and can be easily transported to different places. It will even fit in a nappy bag or tote bag!
We also received some Top Trump Cards to take home and I found they are really fun to play as a family (yes, even during breakfast!). We got the Top Trumps Animals cards so all the questions are related to Animals. I'm not sure what the rules are but we just take turns asking the questions as there are five on each card and the answers are on the back. There's plenty of variety here when it comes to Top Trump Cards. I think my eldest boy and even the adults will enjoy the Star Wars set. I would really like the Space set. I remember playing a board game about planets when I was younger. There's even Minions, Harry Potter, The Earth, Transformers and Australia!
I'm sure they would be a terrific stocking filler come Christmas time or even a cool birthday present. They are also really portable and you could have them in your handbag ready to deflect some quarrelling or just plain boredom busting!
We had a fun time checking out their new games and I'm sure parents will really enjoy spending some quality time with their kids and get them off those darn ipads! They're really budget friendly as well and suited for all ages so worth every penny in my opinion. Hope you check them out at the shops next time.
