North Star Games Giveaway & Review!



****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by North Star Games for the review & giveaway free of charge.****



One of my favorite things to do when I was younger was have family game nights, now that I am older and have children of my own it is something I still continue to do and encourage other families to do it as well. In our collection of games we have two games by North Star Games that are fun for family get togethers and just small family dinners, I was recently contacted by them and asked to try out their newest game called Happy Holidays.





What is Happy Holidays? It’s the hilarious game where players take turns surprising each other with unique gifts. Learning to play is simple, easy and quick there are only three simple steps to the game. You start out the game by dealing five cards to each other, one person will be selected as the gift receiver and the others are gift givers. Once the receiver is selected the givers will give them a 'gift' or card from there hand, from there the receiver picks their favorite gift and the worst gift. The player who played the best card along with the player who gave the worst gift gets a point, at the end of the game the player with the most points wins. You can make this a simple five minute game or you can play with more cards to make the game last longer. This game will make you laugh the entire time you are playing as you can see from above you can be gifted anything from a week in Egypt to a 'Spa' toilet. The recommended amount of players is 3-8 and the recommended playing age is 6+ but my toddler enjoys playing it as well because he likes looking at the cards. We've had a lot of fun with this game and we look forward to playing it more during family game nights. This game retails for $12.99 and can be purchased through their website.

PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky winner will receive their own Happy Holidays game!

  4. This game looks like a blast for my family of 5. it seems like a sillier more kid friendly version of "cards against humanity" or apples to apples type of thing. My family LOVES games, we play them constantly and are always looking for new ones. Thanks for this awesome giveaway

  5. Evolution looks like a bunch of fun. My son loves dinosaurs, so I think this would work well for him.
