Fun New Board Games & A New Twist on the Game of Catch

I have been given the items that are featured in this post in exchange for my honest thoughts, as usual, all opinions are my own. 

Are you looking for some fun that the whole family can enjoy? Are you tired of the same old board games over and over again? If so, you are exactly where we were a couple of weeks ago when we reached the bottom of our pile of board games for the second time. It turned out that we had played out all of the classics and just couldn’t enjoy playing them one more time. So we decided to clean out the entire game closet and donate them to a family nearby known as The Vantraps. When I say they are known as the Vantraps, what I mean is that my husband and I can not keep track of their names so we tallied up the number of kids they had as well as the number of vans they owned, and when we ran out of fingers to count on, they were branded for life.

After bidding adieu to those games and giving them to Maria and the clan, we needed to replenish our stock with some games that we were actually excited to play. That’s where Blue Orange Games comes to the rescue, they have games for all ages and even some cool new toys to get the kids outside. I bet the Vantraps wish they had these things. We may have to tell them about the giveaway below because one lucky winner will receive a set of the two different Dijubi toys from this post.

We have been checking out all of the new entertainment around our house and it has been a great way to keep our minds off of all the crazy stuff going on in the world right now.

Our favorite inside game to play has for sure been Beagle or Bagel, we love both and this game makes us crack up whenever we play it.

Another game that we really enjoyed playing is Detective Club. I love a good mystery and my favorite type is the kind where I know what is going on but nobody else does, really putting my bluffing skills to use.

Pappy Winchester is the dead grandpa you wish you had. This dude has it all, and you know when he kicks the bucket, he will leave the family all of his valuables, that Colt snake gun collection, some property, and a lot of trouble trying to figure out who gets what!

Pappy thought of everything and left an outline of his belongings. You and the other heirs are now assembled around this map to share out Pappy’s possessions. This is a fun one for the whole family!

Who doesn’t enjoy a little organized crime? Goodfellas is one of my favorite movies and as far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster but it just wasn’t in the cards. I chose a life with much less crime, although I did just get a speeding ticket from one of those hidden camera things.

Well since that is as far as my crime sprees go, I need a little mafia action in my life once in a while. That’s why I really enjoy playing The Boss.  This is another one where my keen observation has come into play, I really like being able to figure out my next move based off of everyone else’s.

Sherlock Express really plays to my strong suits, like being paranoid and untrusting of those around me. In this game, everyone is a suspect, until proven innocent. It’s a lot of fun seeing everyone use their skills to identify the culprit to win the round.

Cross Clues is a cooperative party game that asks the players to make connections between each clue. While working together this game will create hilarious moments and give you hours of entertainment using logic, creativity, and social play.

Sometimes you just need to get out of the house. I can not think of a better way to burn off that excess energy than with Dijubi SlingBall Classic.

Everyone has the ability to shoot the ball even farther than they thought it could go using the unique launching system built into the Djubi toys.

For those warmer days, the Djubi Slingball Splash will give you all of the fun that the classic gives but with an extra splash of fun.

It’s the best way to practice catching fly balls and work on your aim. These things can shoot the ball over 100 feet with little effort. I bet they will impress you like they did my family. We had a lot of fun with both of the Djubi toys.

So much fun that we had an unexpected visitor try to get involved in our game.

She enjoys stealing but I think it embarrasses her when she gets caught. She eventually gave us our ball back when I took this mug shot of her and her scandalous ways.

I knew she would want to get involved in the game after seeing how much fun we were having playing with the Djubi toys, I can’t blame her, they are so much fun.

One lucky winner will receive a set of the two different Dijubi toys to play with their family and keep away from their dog. Just enter the giveaway below and make sure you are following my social channels so you never miss a giveaway!
