The Logo Board Game – loads of fun {+ one to giveaway – congratulations Rachel P}.

Post image for The Logo Board Game – loads of fun {+ one to giveaway – congratulations Rachel P}.

When The Logo Board Game  arrived at our house a little while back I secretly did a little jump for joy.    There are few things I like more than the challenge  and fun of a good board game.   Seriously what’s not to like?  They bring people together, get you thinking and make you interact face to face with real live people!   So, I ‘facebooked’ a friend and set up a family play date.   It was time to get our board game on!

If you’ve grown up watching Australian TV and listening to Australian Radio you’re bound to enjoy this game.  Oh okay, there might well be the odd board game wowzer amongst us who doesn’t, but in my opinion it’s unlikely!   It’s based on questions about brands, logos and things we’ve all grown up with, and a race to the winners zone.   The nature of the questions mean pretty much everyone, who didn’t grow up living under a rock, is going to know some of the  answers.  And the nature of the board give a nice balance between skill and topsy-turvy luck.

Apart from the fact that  board games bring people together, the fun thing about The Logo Game is that it takes you on a little walk down memory lane.  You’ll be singing ‘My Dad Picks the Fruit that goes to (hmmm where?) to make the cordial I like best‘ and thinking back to remember what sporting activity the Solo Man was embarking on when he slammed it down fast.

Getting friends together is good.  Having a reason to laugh and remember is even better.  While we sat with our long time friends, a child each on our knees, we teased each other about failing memories, ate cake and drank coffee.  The kids loved the game too – even though most of it passed over their heads.  I think for them it’s just the pure joy of spending uninterrupted time with people they love.  Board games are  great for building family memories.   So, on  a bit of a roll we snuck in a few quick games of Uno and I rounded out the evening by teaching the girls to play Taboo.  Me?  Board game obsessed?  Never :)

Do you play board games with  your family?  What are your favourites?  I’m scratching my head thinking about what others I can start introducing to my little COGs!  Just in case you are as board game obsessed as me I have one copy to giveaway to a lucky commenter.  It’s valued at $39 and the giveaway is open until the midnight on the 12th of June, 2012.

There is no such thing at the moment but there are goods that promise to stop additional hair loss and maybe restore some of
the lost hair, if the follicles haven’t completely withered away.
This is because targeting the hair shaft without damaging the pigment of
the skin can be quite a tricky process. Certain shampoos, soaps, other body products and
flea powders can cause allergic reactions to your Yorkie, resulting in loss of
hair.

The answer is what type of diet allows you as you age
to produce enough hydrochloric acid to digest your food properly so the fermenting food in your stomach doesn’t cause other degenerative
and inflammatory-related diseases. Warm water opens up the cuticle allowing you to clean the hair shaft, but if you use warm water to rinse your hair the cuticle will stay open allowing moisture in and the hair
shaft to swell.

I grew up playing board and card games and have passed my love of them onto my kids. I go away for a weekend every year with my mum, and we play board games for hours! As an adult, family games are fantastic fun, sometimes even more so with a glass of wine or two… My fave game to play with my boys (and mum, and yes, with wine ;) is Pictureka – even the youngest player has a good chance of beating the adults (especially when wine is involved!). Enjoy!

I will never forget when we were all playing the video boardgame Nightmare (do you remember it – was so totally awesome!) and my sister who was winning in the last 15 minutes all of a sudden had to give all her pieces to my brother – she was so outraged she said “If I’m not winning, I’m taking you all down with me!” Yes this is a team game either the “tv” wins or all the players win and she decided it would be worthwhile having us all lose :) It was just one of those moments and it still comes up every time we bring up board game nights – we tease her mercilessly about it.

I remember nagging my parents all the time when I was a kid, to play board games, especially Game of Life! Now my kids are the ones nagging… but I love playing board games with them. It is precious family time, with lots of laughter and memories.

Hi Rachel, just letting you know you’ve won a copy of the Logo Board Game on my Blog The Truth About Mummy. Can you email me an address to have it sent out to? thetruthaboutmummy@gmail.com Thanks so much for entering and I hope your kids love this one. My eldest is exactly the same – she’d play board games with us every day if we let her rule!! I also used to play Life as a child. Awesome game :) Congratulations – and enjoy.

We have Friday Night Boardgame night where friends come round with their favourite boardgame. Its great to turn off the tv and interact with our friends and family in silly ways (like twister and monoploy).

I am the UNO queen!

First of all they don’t need recharging and there’s no batteries to run out, so assures endless fun. AND even us oldies can play, not getting confused by any mod con gadgets and gizmo’s (even Nan and Pa play too, fun for all!).

It seems the logo board game is really enjoyable to play. It is good to play this together with your family and friends. Perhaps, I will buy this logo board game for my family.

When we get together for “games night” at one of our in laws houses, (my family don’t do games, lol), it’s the best, adult against adult and kids v kids and we can take the mickey out of each other without anyone getting their nose out of shape. The laughs we have (especially when we play “balderdash” are memorial!

What a great giveaway! Love boardgames, always have, and life is so much more fun now that my big girls is old enough to play the older games with me. Love that the games are timeless, and the ones I love from childhood still appeal to my 11 year old. Facebooked!

We love to play board games as it gives us time to sit together, talk and enjoy eachothers company without and distractions. As there are quite a few of us ( we have 8 kids), we take turns and have semi finals, finals etc. Until there is an ultimate winner.

We absolutely adore board games!! I grew up playing scrabble, triominoes, ludo, snakes & ladders to name but a few. We weren’t allowed to watch TV as children, so board games were our mainstay and I still love playing them today, I can’t wait to play them with my own son :)

OMG!!!
I am so excited this is now a board game. I have been playing this App on the iPad and I love it. This one will be one for the adults at night. It will be hidden away from those little fingers that manage to loose all pieces. Fun times with Twister and UNO will be afternoon fun with Mum.

Board games are the best in most times. Even better when cold or raining.
It is a game to play with one other person OR can be the whole family.
It can also be educational, i.e. turn taking, memories, skill etc. It can also be a time to reflect on years gone bye, with smiles, laughter or remembering when who won, or lost to the better person.

I love the mental work out my brain gets from board games. First from reading the rules (because no one else wants to do this), then to explaining the rules to others and finally the actual mental work required to play them well and learn to learn and develop tactics and strategies to win! Of course it isn’t just about winning but the fun and togetherness it brings!

Haha…love board games! They bring out the silly in any moment. My dad passed away when I was 19 but one of my fondest memories of him is that he would always take the time to get down on the lounge room floor and play board games with us! I think its a great way for familys to bond :)
