‘Kingdomino’ lifts the time-honoured principle of dominoes to a new level – without losing any of the sleek elegance of its predecessor. On the contrary: the dual mechanics of planning the far-reaching lands surrounding the castle and the clever method of selecting tiles fit together extraordinarily well, they are expertly reduced to their essential components. The strong two-player variant with an XXL kingdom rounds off this quick and easy-to-learn gaming experience. -2017 Game of the Year (Spiel De Jahres Winner) /Jury statement

Brix is a 4 in a row game where each player places blocks which are all identical. Each block is half orange and half blue, with and X and an O, or an O and an X, depending on the side.
On the easier modes of the game, the players are trying to match their symbols, or colors. On the advanced variant a player is either colors or symbols, and matching 4 of either one of of their chosen options (i.e. the color player could match 4 blue in a row, or 4 orange, and the shapes 4 Xs, etc.)
Players take turns taking a brick of their color and sliding it onto one of the other color with the goal of surrounding a dot of their color with their own color.
PinPoint! is a visual deduction game that takes Spot the Difference to the next level.
On each card there is a set of images of the same object, each its own unique color. One object is the original, which each other has another unique variation to it. To determine the original, you must look carefully at each. The original will have details that match most of the others, and you must rule out the variations to determine which it is.
My whole family loves playing games together. During our Holiday get together last weekend we played one of the newest games my husband backed on Kickstarter called “Cheesonomics: A Cheesy Original Card Game” by Dale Tolley.
The goal of the game is to make the most money producing and selling cheeses from Europe and North America! Cheeses included Cheddar, Feta, Gouda, Edam, and & Parmesan. The animals in the game are cows, sheep, goats, yaks, & reindeer. The game isn’t very complicated yet it provides for plenty of choices and challenges especially when more than two players are having a go at it. You can play with up to five people.
I won’t deny there were a lot of cheesy jokes thrown back and forth during game play. My daughter sat this game out taking a break from just playing Munchkin Treasure Hunt but she easily could have picked up the rules and game play of this one. Age recommendations are for age 8 and up. Game play is roughly half an hour or little longer if still learning how to play.
All in all a good time was had and this game is totally recommended by my husband and I!
