Shuffleboard is a game that can be played tabletop or on surfaces literally the size of a deck. While the origins are not known for certain, we do know that the game goes back at least 500 years in Europe. Prior to receiving this tabletop version, I had only seen shuffle boards roughly the size of a pool table. In the US, these range from 9 to 22 feet. The object of the game is to slide your weight against your opponents weight to get the most points without falling off the board. As one can imagine, originally the game was played on a long table. Oh, the days of creativity! If you are interested, there are a ton of articles about the history of Shuffleboard! It’s fascinating to me! 😀
One thing I love about Carrom’s Tabletop Shuffleboard is that it is made in the USA. Seems like these days we get most things from other countries, which is fine except that our own economy suffers for it. Made in the good ole state of Michigan, Carrom makes some fine Quality Family Games! As their logo promises, the Shuffle Board does seem to be made to last. Assuming we manage to keep up with the pieces, I believe this will be a game that we play for many many years. I do wish there was something built in to keep them from getting separated, but I suppose that’s where my craftiness comes in!
If you are looking for something to keep you or the kids busy, this Shuffle Board is a perfect way to do that. I love the versatility of who could play it. Since it isn’t incredibly difficult, it can be played by kids, the competitive aspect it brings out in trying to get just the right move will also entertain young adults on up. In a slight rebellion against my position in life, I could also see this being a good drinking game. I will admit that I say that with some serious shame. LOL. Guess those things get stuff in there and stick it out! LOL
I’m working really hard to keep my mouth from popping off everything that comes to mind so I’m super excited about this game! Not to mention that I can’t wait to see what comes out of the mouths of the kiddos!
Come back soon for a full review!

You all know by now, any excuse for me to have a gathering is game on (ha, pun intended). So when Tryazon gave me the opportunity to try out a new game and host a game night, I jumped on it. Even with the insanity of some of my busy, flaky friends which honestly mostly was my own last minute flakiness, we managed to have a blast. The game made it super easy!
For an uncounted amount of hours, 6 adults were enthralled with this hilarious game, Personalogy. Thought provoking questions quickly bring out all of the sarcasm and humor in even the quietest of persons as they just can’t resist. We laughed so hard it hurt at the various responses to the questions and the friendly debates it sparks.
So here’s the skinny, every deck has 120 cards with playful, thought provoking questions that will keep you laughing and joking. There is a Party Edition (which is what we played) and a Family Fun Game made for families. Whether you are having a party, a group game night, or just to use to spark some super conversations on road trips it makes the time fly by! Points are optional but my super competitive hubby had to have them, so we played with them. (I’ll go ahead and brag that I won, haha) Anyway, you need to check it out. You won’t be sorry!
