Gamewright Review and Giveaway...

"Gamewright was founded in 1994 by four parents whose kids wanted great games. From the start, our mission has remained clear: Create the highest quality family games with outstanding play-value. Guided by themes and experiences that transcend age and salted with a bit of irreverence, our games are designed to foster laughter, learning, friendship and fun.  Over the years our family has grown to over 50 games, 150 awards, and countless happy players."
"Knock Your Blocks Off brilliantly combines two seemingly disparate elements into one powerhouse game. In a sense, you’re getting two games in one: a fast-paced visual puzzle and a fine-motor dexterity challenge. At first one might not expect “brains and brawn” to work well together, but as our play testers told us – they give the game depth as well as the opportunity for players with different strengths to shine.
Promotes: Hand-Eye Coordination and Strategic Thinking"

"They say that the ocean is the inspiration for countless works of great art. Such is the case with Mermaid Beach, a game that came about while 8-year-old Emily Ehlers spent an entire year living aboard a sailboat and travelling the world by sea. Emily, along with help from her brothers, Jake and Drew, came up this wildly imaginative card game that has all elements of a great Gamewright game: fantastic art, whimsical characters, and a set of rules that are easy to learn, yet engaging enough to lure you back for more. No word whether Emily visited a real Mermaid Beach during her trip, but if so, we hopes she returns there someday to teach the mermaids her game!
Promotes: Counting and Matching"

What we thought:  We played these games at our New Year's Eve celebration and they were a huge hit!  Both games were a lot of fun and enjoyed by both the adults and the children who played them.  Knock Your Blocks off encouraged creative and strategic thinking and allowed for competitive, but fun play.  Mermaid Beach had beautifully illustrated cards and combined the most fun elements of several card games in one deck.  We played these games on "teams" with our kiddos who are 3 and 5, but the older kiddos were able to play both games solo.  If you are looking for a few games to add to your family game night stash, we recommend Knock Your Blocks Off and Mermaid Beach:)  ABCD Diaries gives these Gamewright games an A+!
