Five Crowns

Review:

Our go-to family card game. Similar to rummy and simple enough to be playable by kids, complex enough to be fun for adults. My parents are on their third deck by now!

My rating: (5 / 5)

If Spot It! Alphabet is as fun as the original Spot It! it seems like a great way to help teach the letters.

Another game I’ve heard great things about, but never had the opportunity to play

The Farming Game

Review:

One of my favorite games when I was a teenager. It takes a long time to play, but I enjoy economics-based strategy games like this.

I saw a recommendation for Agricola that caught my eye due to its similarities to a favorite childhood game called The Farming Game, but with a medieval flare.

I hear rave reviews for this game, but I’ve never had the opportunity to play it.
