On my family's recent trip to Tennessee, my kids pulled a classic out of their grandparents' game closet to help pass the time while we waited for our lost luggage to arrive: Scrabble Crossword Game.
I think Scrabble is an okay game, but I am not super great at it. I prefer games that are fast-paced. When my daughter brought out Spot Itfrom the closet and asked me to play, I was like, "Alright, I guess."
Oh my! Y'all (Sorry, I just spent an entire week hearing this word again!), I gots me a new favorite game! ;) It's fast, fun, and I get to win a lot. Yippee!
Here's the gist of it: Each player receives one card with little pictures all over it. From the main deck of cards that is positioned face down, a player draws the top card and flips it over. The first player to call out a matching image on his own card gets to keep the card. This continues until all the cards are gone. Player with the most cards wins. I wish I'd taken pictures of the actual game, but I was too busy
There are a few variations to the game, but this is how our family played most of the time. Loads of fun for the whole family! It would make a great under $10 stocking stuffer for your kids or gift for any other person on your list this Christmas. :) (Sorry in advance to all of my relatives.)
As I was researching this game, I saw that there were all kinds of Spot It! games. I'd never even heard of it before. Cool. I want the Holidays one!
Happy Shopping! (I went way over my exclamation point quota in this post, but I truly loved this game.)
