Family Game Night – Giveaway from @MattelGameOn #GameOnParty

We are a family who loves to spend time together playing games. Usually this finds us at the dining room table, split into teams throwing jibes back and forth. Yup we like to refer to this as bonding time. Mattel wants to bring back family game night and I’m all for it. The time spent together, winning and losing has allowed us to bond and help our kids to become gracious losers….and remind myself of this all too often.

The fine folks at Mattel recently asked me to hold a Family Game Night and of course I said YES! They did present me with a challenge, I had to head over to the Mattel Gameology Facebook App which asked me a bunch of questions in order to determine my game sign. I’m a Socialies. Mattel sent me an amazing box of games and party accessories which were based upon my gameology profile.

Mattel sent me a gorgeous box which included some games, coasters, bottle openers, napkins and colourful fortune cookies. For our game night we decided that we’d invite my Mum and our friend from next door to join the kids, my husband and I.

After putting out some chips and blending up some Pina Colada Mocktails we were all set for our night of fun.

We chose to play UNO first, this is a card game we play often. It’s perfect if you have a variety of ages, believe me when I say it can get competitive. Our girls actually ganged up on me and well….I may have come in last…My Mum had never played UNO and it was hilarious teaching her. She caught on quickly and much to my dismay she joined in on the “Get Julie” mantra.

Because it was a weekday evening we gave the kids the choice of our final game. While we’d love to have gotten to play all of them, it was getting late. It was no surprise that they jumped on Angry Birds, they’d been bugging me to open the box since it crossed the threshold of the front door.

This game is AWESOME, we love the digital version and this one didn’t disappoint. First thing you do is line up the cards and choose form 4 levels of difficulty. You choose a card and build your obstacle as per instructions.

Now you line up the birds specified on the card and send them flying towards the obstacle. The idea is to knock off all of the birds to WIN.

We really enjoyed our Game Night and encourage you all to get one on the calendar yourselves.

    Oh the memories of game night as a child. Every friday night we would sit around the kitchen table (me, sis, brother, mom, stepdad) and play Game of Life and other games. I would definitely invite everyone over and do it all over again … except we would never play survivor again because I ALWAYS got voted off the island first :( LOL
