Whether you still have some Summer travel plans, or are looking for some new games for family night, I have 2 new games from Wiggles 3D, that perfectly fit the bill!
Players use the magnet wand to pick up bells of only one color. Make a string off the end of the magnet wand, or create a cluster — just don’t pick up bells of any other color or the turn is over. There are 4 colors of bells, so you can either play with up to 3 people,or have teams, where turns are alternated.
Each player must decide how far to push their luck on every turn. The magnet wand can be used two ways: Use the small end for precision grabs, or try the larger, more powerful end to make really long chains. You choose which end to use each turn.The first player to collect all 10 bells of one color wins!
It is NOT simple by any means! Miss Grace has the record, as shown here with 7 pickups!
In Lexigo RUSH, you have 60 seconds to find as many words as you can using the tiles in the grid. Be creative — only words no one else found will count.
The stakes rise every round as score doublers are added to the grid.
Here you can see all the pieces laid out. Normally you would play with 13. But for Miss Grace, we started with all of them, and made any words we could.
As you can see we were able to make 9 words on our first round of turns. We ended up making 30 before calling a draw and ending the game, Miss Grace likes it better than scrabble, and using we used the FREE Game Box App on the next time we played, to be our 1 minute timer and to keep track of our words.
This is a great game for upper elementary and middle schoolers especially, to work on word skills and vocabulary!
We love both of these games and can't recommend them enough for portable travel games, or new games for your family night! They are also great for passing the time,while waiting for the doctor or siblings during extra-curriculars! So keep them in mind this Back to School season!
