Snake Oil – From Out of the Box
Snake Oil is a hilarious game that reminds me of that old saying “If you believe that then I have a bridge to sell you.” Put two words together that best suits your customer and then give the best sales pitch for that made up item you can. This game is great for teens or even staff meeting!

“Get ready to strike up the fun & laughter! You’re the Statue Collector and it’s your job to figure out who (or what!) your frozen friends are posing as. Each round, the Statue Collector leaves the room while the other players freeze into a pose of a person, place or thing on a category card. Players must hold the pose until the Collector returns and tries to guess the poses. Can you pick out the Oreo or the Hula Hoop? The Termite or the Tarantula?”

In the Game of Things you read a topic card and then write down your response. It can be anything that comes to mind, there’s no right or wrong answer! Then all the responses are read aloud and you have to figure out who said what!
Incredibrawl – From Vision 3 Games
Incredibrawl is an awesome game of random laid back fun with a tad of chaos to spice things up. With three ways to play listed in the rule book this game is truly a game for all ages. The goal is to get the most Glory, which is the goal for any brawl really, but in this game you have to play your cards wisely and hope the other players don’t play better cards or that they don’t play Power-Up cards.
Nounsense – From Maranda Games
Nounsense is a fun card game of quick thinking! You have to describe for your teammates the person, place or thing on one of the 60 cards in play. You keep describing until your minute is up and then pass the cards to the next team until you all run out of cards. Round? Same idea but you only get to use 3 words! A great family game night game!
