Get Your Game On! It’s a giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to the winner, Sandy!  Thank you all so much for entering!

I love games.  Card games, board games, you name it we play it.  It’s what we do on lazy Saturdays and at every holiday get together.  And now our kids, well the oldest two anyway, are finally at that age where they can play games with us, and I love love that!  While I love Candyland and Snakes & Ladders, I much prefer a great game of Uno or Mad Gab!


So when I got the opportunity to get my Game On! and review some Mattel games, I jumped at the chance.  And what was so neat about this review, is that the games came personalized to my Gameology sign.  Now what is a game sign?  Well Mattel recently launched the Gameology Facebook App that determines your game sign, which tells you what type of player you are and which games fit you best.  Pretty neat.

So I did the test, and it revealed that my game sign is Activius  Here’s what my sign says:  “Activius is an agile and playful sort. Quick in thought and action, Activius has a combination of intelligence and energy that makes them fun to play with and a challenge to play against. They have great physical prowess and balance and enjoy games that require their hands. You’ll need to be on your toes, sometimes literally, if you go against an Activius.”  Too fun!


Some time later a box full of Mattel games arrived at my door!  After we all did a little happy dance, I got to planning a family game day!  Complete with bowls of popcorn, Swedish Berries, Twizzlers, Fuzzy Peaches, and fancy drinks.  The kids couldn’t believe their eyes…it’s not everyday I bring this stuff out!  But I wanted to go all out for a fun afternoon!


Then we got down to some seriously fun game playing…we especially love Mad Gab!  Have you played?  There’s just something so funny listening to people sound out words that are supposed to make sense as a sentence.  I think I even broke out the ugly laugh…come on…you know the one.  When the ugly laugh comes out, you know there’s some serious fun going on!


 Even our little guy was able to get in on the fun with the new Angry Birds game.  He’s been carting around this game all over the house since we got it!  So cute!



Have an inspired day!

Disclosure:  I was provided with this box of games for review.  But all opinions are mine, and they are honest.  I love games!  🙂
