This game is a lot of fun to break the ice. I know from personal experience, that sometimes you are just too tired to talk, and/or you just can't think of anything to say.
With Family Talk 2, you are given a bunch of topics to discuss, like "Are you related to anyone famous?"
This is a great game to help open up with your kids, and also a great way to remember fun things from your past!!!
Getting coal in your stocking is now the best gift of the holidays!
The Lumps Legend: Children around the world have been so good over the past few years; lumps of coal have built up at the North Pole. Puzzled by what to do with the excess coal; Santa’s elves decided to create an exciting new game that uses lumps of coal of all shapes and sizes. The game is so much fun, good little boys and girls, for the first time ever, are excited to get lumps of coal in their stocking!
Lumps, the Elf Coal Game is the most addictive family dice game you’ll ever play! The goal is to score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. Roll a pair of 3s, score 3 pointsâ€¦a pair of 10s scores 10 points. What makes the game unique is that it has four different types of dice and there are few high numbers. On each turn you have to make decisions on which dice to keep and re-roll. Do you play it safe and hold a pair of 4s, or chance it and try for a high pair? The endless possibilities make Lumps exciting and addictive. Great stocking stuffer!
Ben Jr loves this game. It is such a simple game, but brings him hours of fun.
With Lumps, you roll dice in a competition between other players to see who can get the highest score. There are different sizes and shapes of the dice, with different numbers on them. You get points when you roll two of the same number.
It's a lot of fun, and so far I have not won once!!!
Lumps, the Elf Coal game is available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores, Books-A-Million, Go! Games and 100s of specialty toy stores in the US besides at Continuum Games site.
These games are a lot of fun, and are perfect stocking stuffer!!!
