This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Cher. Congrats!
Since you know how much we love games here, I have another fun one to tell you about! Games are a great way to get adults and children to converse and interact. Many also inspire learning and creative thinking. The games I find to be the most fun are those with a bit of challenge (but not too difficult because I like to win! Hehe!).
My husband and I recently had an opportunity to try out Rummino! The game is offered by a company called Marina Games, a family business committed to a fun and creative approach to games. Rummino! combines Rummy (which I had never played before) with the strategy of word tile games. My hubby had to teach me a thing or two about Rummy before I actually “got” the game (but it’s not difficult). Each player receives seven tiles, and then “plays them” to score points. The tiles are played in runs (same color/suit) or sets (same tiles, different suits) and the goal is to score the highest number of points.
The game is fun, challenging, and won’t get tiresome or boring. It’s relatively easy to learn yet provides enough challenge for my husabnd and I got get a bit competitive. I like the weaving of a traditional card game that people know and love with a tile game. There is a familiar yet fresh feel to this game that I really appreciate.
Rummino! is designed for older children and adults over the age of eight and retails for $19.99. It also comes with a tile bag which makes it great for toting on holiday!
