She {hearts} Blue Orange Games

I have never really been a huge fan of board games.

I know, I know, this admission probably makes me sound like the worst mother ever.

But, whatever.

I didn’t like them when I was younger. And I don’t like them now.

The kids cheat and fight. Dumb Dad cheats and trash talks. It’s hard to find something that the four year old AND the ten year old can enjoy. And they take FOREVER to end. Unless I cheat too. And,while I’m not above that, I find it an exercise in excess creativity I don’t really have.

Maybe it’s just the type of board games we’ve been playing?!

Recently Blue Orange Games sent us Spot it.

It is a symbol matching game that for some reason my kids, my husband, and I all love to play!

You can’t cheat. There’s nothing to fight over. And it’s appropriate for every member of our family, from the 4 year old on up (although, technically, the game is geared towards kids 7 & up, he is a pretty savvy 4 and has had no problem having a blast with us and this game).

It’s easy to play, doesn’t require a lot of set up, doesn’t take FOREVER to finish, so it’s no wonder that we love, love, love it.

It’s even perfect for road trip fun in the back seat because all you need is the cards and, um, eyes!

I went online to check out some of Blue Orange’s other gaming options and honestly, they make so many perfect titles for my Dudes.  So many of their games are active, noisy, and filled with the kind of fun my boys were made for!

There are few things she loves more than cupcakes, but she’s also interested in photos, fashion, and having fun, pretty much in that exact order. Read articles by Amanda →
