This blog looks at the modern board game hobby, why I think they can be beneficial in a family environment, and how I've introduced my family to games.
It will contain reviews on games we play, and how I rate them for families.
I'll also add my random musings on the board game hobby and specific games.
When you hear "board games", and think I'm talking about Monopoly, then read further - and welcome down the rabbit hole!

Mice & Dice? Looks Nice
So a new Kickstarter project has been brought to my attention that looks like it will be a great game to play with young families.
Click the link above to find more details, but essentially at the beginning of the game each player gets a number. Whenever that number is rolled they move 1 space on the track (or 2 if they roll their own number).
Well, yes but then there are the cards - if a players number is rolled more than once, then they get to draw either a rat or a mouse card. Rat cards are negative cards that can be played on other players, whilst mouse cards are beneficial and can be played by the player drawing the card.
Candyland meets Mouse Trap? There are even some Early Bird space left, so back it today!
