Family Game Night Incentive~ (4 Giveaways)

Playing games is one of my favorite things to do with my family and friends! Our family has invested many hours into gaming (board games and video games). I can say some of our best memories are from the fun and laughter with playing games. Growing up, I spent many years playing games with my parents, siblings and friends. It is very good for the soul, and it is affordable, too! It is so expensive to go out of the home and find entertainment. It is a challenge to find something fun to do that won't break the pocketbook. The economy is really struggling right now, and most families don't have endless money right now. What a better way to connect with your family ~ let the stress of life escape~ by spending a night together and have a family game night!
Hasbro encourages Americans to share a weekly night of laughter, bonding and fun – and still stay on budget – with a Family Game Night! Board games can certainly be played and enjoyed at any time, but a designated family game night provides an opportunity for families to share an affordable night of staying in and creating new memories together. In fact, according to a survey conducted by Hasbro in May 2008, nearly half (48%) of Americans believe that a family game night is the most enjoyable form of family bonding. I really couldn't agree more! We have such a great time, and a hard time ending our game time. Before we know it, 5 hours have passed and our kids are passed their bedtimes.
If you are trying to save money, or can't afford to indulge on entertainment, Family Game Night is an excellent choice. A game can bring many hours of joy and entertainment. When you go out to eat or a movie, the time is limited. Investing in a board game is an economical and wise choice. “Family game night invites families everywhere to turn off the outside world for a short time and reconnect with each other,” said Matt Collins, Vice President of U.S. Marketing for Hasbro Games. “This year we are pleased to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hasbro’s Family Game Night initiative, which continues to encourage families to play games together for fun, learning and laughter.”
Hasbro offers such a wide variety of fun games that families can enjoy during their Family Game Night! Twister Hopscotch is a great combination of the classic Twister game and the well-known hopscotch. Kids can design their own courses with colorful rings and snap them together with purple connectors. Kids can make their courses down hallways, in living rooms, and even take this game outdoors. Kids can wiggle, sing, hum, or clap their way through the coarse, with a friend on the other end, going from ring to ring. Spinning the wheel, kids can find out what activity they must do to get to the next color. At a reasonable price of $19.99, kids ages 6+ can enjoy this game.
My husband and I went away for a few days just after our baby was born, and we really enjoyed sitting down and playing the new MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition game. This is a great new version of the classic Monopoly (but updated to the present) with electronic funds! That's right, you get to swipe cards to buy, sell, and transfer funds. I liked this version because the money amounts were greater (Millions vs. Hundreds) and we got to buy and sell cities from around the world instead of the streets of Atlantic City. It was fun playing with new pieces for our markers, too. We had a lot of fun with this game, and I recommend it! The A.R.V is $38.99 and it is recommended for ages 8 and up. 2 to 6 players can enjoy the game at one time.
Another game that we recently enjoyed from Hasbro is the Yatzee Free for All. Our friends cameover for a game night, and we played this game for about 4 hours. It is such a fun version of the classic Yatzee, but brings out some competition between players. You still roll the dice to make a combination (like the classic Yatzee) but you have to match a combo of something the cards like a small straight, full house or three of a kind. If you match one, you can claim it, but now it's "up for grabs" until your next turn, so anybody can steal it by matching or beating your dice roll! The cards are placed in front of your spot until everyone takes a turn. It is a suspenseful game, and a lot of fun! This game is $19.99 and 2-4 players can play. I think this game is more fun with at least 3 people.

Did you ever play Guess Who? when you were younger? I played it (for many hours) and I loved trying to trick out my opponent. Hasbro has a new version of Guess Who? called Guess Who? Extra and it's electronic! You still have the fun face-guessing game, but there is even more faces to pick from~ more than 100! This edition has an electronic timer, lights, and sounds to enhance the fun and excitement with guessing. Geared toward ages 6 and up (for 2 players) Hasbro has this game for
$24.99.

I love the Easy Bake Oven for my two grandsons that are 8 & 9. They are old enough to help me but still too young to make it themselves and to use the "real" oven. So this would be perfect for me to "help" them but they could do most of it themselves. The "Guess Who" game is actually what my daughter wanted for Christmas but they were sold out! I really want to win it for her!
