The latest package that I receieved a few days ago is not that great quality wise. Blocks are different colours, some feel smooth and a few feel rough. Some have zero cracks, a few have a bunch.
This interferes with playing the game. If one block isn't smooth, then you can't pull it out like one that is smooth.

My kids and whole family enjoy a good quick game or sitting down to a few (best out of...) games a uno!

We were surprised at how our nephew was immediately drawn into the circuit board tasks – he was so enthusiastic and genuinely excited to build something that lit up, powered a fan or light, or triggered a siren. He said it was “awesome!” but more importantly he showed it was awesome by

Another great aspect of this game is its portability. It is the size of 3 decks of cards, so easy to throw in your suitcase and have

Codenames is all about giving one word clues to try and determine the "identities" of 8-9 agents in a field of 25 code name cards. I can literally think of no downside to this game. Easier to pick up and play than other quickie games like Coup, Love Letter, Resistance - if you have a gaming group or just a few friends that like board games and enjoy logic based games, pick this one up. Even if it sounds simple the challenge of trying to come up with a one word clue to uncover multiple codenames will provide a challenge for most players. The randomness of the arrangement of the code name cards and code keys ensures you're not playing the same game over and over.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for a few people and they've already reported back saying how fun it is. A few tips: It's absolutley essential that the Cluemaster does not give the clues with any inflection or possibe hints in their vocal delivery. Also, don't stare at the cards too long, that's a dead giveaway. And this was the #1 thing that drove people crazy when we played and was a hard habit to break: Before you give the clues, you can't say anything like "This is a stretch, but..." becuase THAT'S a clue!! When
Basically, the game is played in two teams and on each team there are "clue-givers" and "guessers" (at least 1 each, which is why you need at least 4 players to play properly). Cards with nouns are placed on the table with certain cards belonging to each team. Only the clue-givers know which cards belong to each team. The objective is to have your teams cards picked first before the other team. The clue-giver has to think of a 1 word clue

I purchased this game after falling in love with the game of Rummy-O after playing with my children at their grandparents. It is a game that brings the family together as it is enjoyed by children, including my youngest at 6, as well as adults of varying age. It can be played is a very leisurely manner or competitively utilizing strategy. It is very easy to learn and play and I love watching the kids wheels turn as they contemplate moves and then they light up as they carry through laying down and reiranging their melds. We do not use any time restraint rules, as well as follow the rummy-o version, where you must make 50 to start instead of the included rules outlining melds totalling 30 to lay down.
Good quality and size of tiles. The number colours could had been improved with some players having to work a

The blocks come in a box and there is an included carrying pouch for storage. There is also a small booklet showing you how to make some of the many possible shapes and structures with these blocks. The package contains 24 squares and 40 triangles. (I wish there were more squares than triangles because kids seem to like them better as they are easier to build things with).
Each square has 4 magnets (one on each side) and triangles have - you guessed it, 3 magnets. Also, since they are magnetic, they can easily be used on the fridge, and that is awesome! All the pieces are very well built with smooth edges and vivid colours!
My two toddlers (both under 5) actually prefer these over the real Magformers because the magnets are easier for them to pull apart, yet they're still strong enough to build reasonably sturdy creations.
For older kids and adults (hey don't judge!), the stronger magnets in the Magformers are going to be better especially once they start building more complex things, but for the price, the value of this set is undeniable.

We also filtered through and removed all f-bombs that were otherwise harmless (and put these in a Ziploc bag inside the game, so they can be used at other times)
After doing this multi-level censorship, there was still about 85-90% of the game still accessible to play, which we did, with our 8 year old as well! It was hilarious and fun for the whole family, and quite easy to customize if you want to play with your young kids or with your adult friends!
We are quite thrilled with

There's a little tray on the side you can use to store the pieces, or keep play money.
The only thing I don't like is that the ice cream doesn't sit snugly on the cone so it often falls over during the transition walk to mom or dad. Otherwise, everything looks and feels sturdy and well-built.
My only gripe is that there are only 3 cones included. There are 4 ice cream flavors and each flavor has 2 scoops. Can we at least get one more cone to make 4 double scoop ice cream?

I believe it helps to develop kids' intelligence and imagination.
Definitely I would like to retroduce it to my friends.

You can play individuals or teams, so number of players could really be unlimited. You can really even play all alone!
Very simple setup and instructions, making it easy for your child to go ahead and play without needing an adult when setting up (as long as it’s not their first time playing and they cannot read).
Travel friendly. Easy to pack on the go. It will add a little weight to your luggage.
We loved that we can play this anywhere you have a flat surface, we can even bring to beach and play at picnic table!
It’s a bit of a science getting all the pieces to fit back into the container.
....and the container is put going to last forever either, would have loved a keepsake case for this game. (A child or
You can either link the pieces together with a slightly easier strategy (ie. Joining 2 U-joints), or take it up a notch and try one of the trickier suspension moves (see attached photo for examples).
No two gmes are ever the same, and will test your fine motor skills and ability to balance objects on an ever changing playing platform!
It can be a lot of fun, especially if sabotage is your intention, but it can also be fairly easy if you're just trying to get through it. Jenga is better.

Worth the money. Quality build.
It seems they could have made the legs easier for kids to assemble, but they were obviously minimizing materials etc. Strong once together, but totally possible to destroy

Daughter picks up the pieces and can sort, and maybe soon will be able to stack on the pegs.
Things I like:
High quality wood materials.
Things I don't like:
The pieces are quite small, I thought they would be larger (they can get lost really easily).
The blue and purple are very close in colour, close enough I think that my daughter can't really tell the difference easily.
That's about it. If the colours were more contrasted, I would give it 4 stars. If the pieces were bigger, I would give it 5. Also, for those who might be worried about paint chipping, I have had this now for at least a couple of months and everything looks pretty much exactly the same as when I purchased it.

Yet several months later, here I am. I must admit it is a super fun game for the kids to play, they always have a blast when it comes out. And more times than not I’m right there with them playing and laughing. Great for all ages.
