Whether it’s being home, together, again, still, through the holidays or maybe you’re like me and have a full four weeks of the kids at home doing some online schooling on each end of the Christmas break – the fact is we all need some things to entertain us beyond Netflix. People are always looking for new games or activities to do with the family, so here are a few picks from Asmodee to consider!
Spot it! Eco
Test your observational skills and hone your reflexes with the award-winning game play of Spot It! Classic, a game of lightning-fast choices for a group of two to eight players. With dozens of awards and possible versions married to elegant game play, Spot It! has become a global phenomenon. My girls love this game, and we gifted one to a friend this holiday season as well. Checking online, I found it at Indigo.ca ($16.99) and discovered they even have a Harry Potter version, if you have a fan in the house! You can also find it at ToysRUs.ca ($14.99), and GameShack.ca ($11.99).
Patchwork: Christmas Edition
Wrap up warm and create a winter-themed quilt with Patchwork: Christmas Edition, the latest version of the beloved two-player game. Decked out in plenty of festive decor, Patchwork: Christmas Edition sees players placing tiles to form their own beautiful blanket, as in the original. Featuring Yuletide patterns, Patchwork: Christmas Edition has two players attempting to make the highest-scoring December-appropriate quilt possible. The board game even comes with a Patchwork-themed cookie cutter, enabling players to bake and munch on biscuits while they play. If you’re new to Patchwork, check out YouTube for some great tutorials on how to play! I found Patchwork: Christmas Edition at 401games.ca ($33.95), Boardgames.ca ($39.95) and Gameshack.ca ($31.99).
Marvel Universe, Infinity Gauntlet: A Love Letter™ Game
The Mad Titan Thanos seeks the Infinity Stones to bend the universe to his indomitable will, but courageous heroes are assembling to stand in his path to ultimate power. Based on the beloved card game and set in the Marvel Universe, Infinity Gauntlet: A Love Letter Game features the elegant mechanics of the original, re-imagined in a one-vs-many twist for thrilling team play. While one player takes on the role of Thanos on a crusade to change the universe as we know it, 1-5 other players must deploy iconic heroes to defeat him before he can achieve his aims. Look for it at 401games.ca ($16.99).
