Board Game Day

20130506-063931.jpgBoard game day is one of my favorite days. We play lots of different board games all day and practice math, spelling, magnetism, and learned about our 50 states. We laughed, giggled, stratigized and even played for M&M just to mix things up.

 

The first game we played was * YIKERZ GAME a game that can be played anywhere, in solo, head-to-head or team formats. There are over 20 custom board layouts and players can design their own. Yikerz is quick to learn but challenging to master.

 

Next we played Scrabble Apple, basically like Banana scrabble but you build off an opponent’s word, gets the word and the points. (Red letters double your word score.) Think fast, or your words will get swiped before you can say, “SCRABBLE Apple.” To win, have the most points when the tiles are gone.

 

Math Dice Game was the most fun we had all day. Each player try to get closest to the target number by creating different equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, even powers. You won’t believe how much fun math can be.

 

Last we played Scrambled States game, you have fun learning about the United States in this madcap game of observation and quick reflexes. Collect cards by matching states to a Scramble card. Or “Go the Distance” and find a state’s closest neighbor. Whoever scrambles to match and collect the most state cards wins.
