My family loves board games. Many evenings, particularly over the holidays, you can find us around a table playing our new favorite. My brother even co-hosts a local annual gaming event. Yeah, we have a lot of family game nights.
When Mattel offered to help me host a Game Night, I thought I’d try something a little different and invite some of my girlfriends over.
They sent me a box of games that was personalized based on my Gameology sign. Mattel’s Gameology Facebook App determines your game sign by asking you some questions and tells you what time of games fit you best. You can find out if you are an Activus, Strategicorn, or a Socialie like me by trying out their app at: Follow this link to determine your game sign: Apps.facebook.com/
I have to say, the app was right on the money. Most of the times when my friends get together we talk and talk and talk and eat. So social games are a perfect fit. Inside the box was Mad Gab, Apples to Apples, Uno, Phase 10 and Skip Bo Dice Game. We spent most of the night playing Apples to Apples (well, that and talking). It’s a great game for a group, is quick and easy to play and doesn’t put you on the spot. It can also be pretty funny.
I had a great time trying out these games with my friends, but I’m really looking forward to hosting another family games night so we can play our new games.
