Czech Games Edition
My family and I love to take the time out a few nights a week to play board games. Even if its myself playing with one of the little kids, my oldest son and I, cards with my husband on his day off or even all of us as a big family. It’s a nice way to bring us together closer as a family and disconnect from our phones and video games. These games that Czech Games sent are for the grownups. Both games I have been wanting from BAM and decided to reach out to feature on the blog. They were kind enough to oblige.
Codenames Pictures: This is a game was pretty difficult to understand at first but once we got the hang of it, we had a bit of fun. It says that it can be played with 2 people, we found that to be a little more difficult and a little boring. So as my suggestion, play with at least 3. Take the 2 stacks of black and white picture cards and place 20 of them in a 4×5 grid. Each team will pick 1 player to be a spymaster. The other members are the field operatives.The grid is were the field operatives can meet the agents. The key will tell you what agent goes on what picture by giving them clues. The game is won by getting the assassin card laid down or guessing all your cards. Like I said at first its a little difficult to understand. I have included a video to help understand the gameplay a little more.
That’s a Question: This is a really neat game and fun to play with a small or large group of friends. It’s all about learning more about each other! My oldest son and I played together just to learn about it for this blog post, but I really suggest playing with more than 4 players. Set up the board according to the rules, and deal out each player 5 answer cards. Each turn the player asks another player with an acorn a question (off the basic question card) and he/she has to use the answer cards to answer. Everyone else has to guess using their A B cards. The winner is the first squirrel to climb the mountain. I have also included a video to help you understand the gameplay.
Galaxy Trucker: Cute and sill story of a woman trucker who trucks through the galaxy with an alien to deliver sewer pipes. She just keeps getting caught in mayhem.
