Banana grams would have to be our residents all time favourite. (Word game).

This looks like a great game Janelle, I hadn't heard of it! Thanks for posting.

I bought a tour goal game for my residence and just can't figure out how to play it with them any suggestions

Hi Lori, can you give some more information, please. I have never heard of Tour Goal game; perhaps it is known by another name or is it a soccer game?

We have a lot of fun with "5 Second Rule" game, without the timer.

What is the five second rule game
Talita 27th Nov 2017
Hi Lori, I looked this up and found that it is a board game with question cards and a timer. You have 5 seconds to give three answers to a question like 'name 3 breeds of dogs' or 'name 3 red fruits'. Sounds like fun!
