When was the last time you played a card or board game with your family? Joe and I play about once a month, sometimes less. I wish it were more but honestly, I just don’t think about it sometimes. We’ve found that we love playing games together and can spend hours laughing and working out our strategies to win.
A few months ago we discovered Scrabble Slam! it’s similar regular Scrabble but faster and maybe even more fun. So when I was given the opportunity to review 3 new card games by Hasbro I was thrilled. The great thing about card games is they are small and easily transportable, perfect for a trip to the beach.
We played Mille Bornes a is a the perfect travel game since it’s all about… travel. I’ve always loved Sorry! but Sorry! Revenge is a fun game of strategy and luck. I think my favorite game of the evening was Yahtzee Hands Down, it’s similar to poker but without all the bluffing and poker faces.
Play distance cards and speed towards the finish line, or put the brakes on your opponent with nasty hazards! Drive carefully, because they’ll be playing hazards on you too. Out of gas? Play a Gasoline card. Got in an accident? Play your Repairs card. Be the first player to travel 1000 miles and win!
Take turns to play number and action cards to change the play pile’s total. Get the pile to 21 without going bust to get one of your pawn cards home. But watch out – someone could play a SORRY! card and steal your win!
Collect dice cards to make classic combinations: 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, small straight, large straight, full house and YAHTZEE! Re-roll by discarding cards you don’t need and taking a chance on new ones. But here’s the twist – pit your hand against another player’s. Score high and win the Combo card points. It’s great YAHTZEE fun in a card game!
For 2 to 6 players.
