Great Holiday Games 2019

Great games for holiday family fun!


Winning Moves Games' Kozo ($16.95) Though the game's multi-shaped blocks made of wooden cubes look a bit like a real world version of Tetris, the object is quite different:  you want the tower to get as high as you can without it tumbling down. It takes fine motor skills, as well as predictive reasoning and attention to detail to win.  

Punto ($9.99) Though it looks a bit like a set of dominoes, this card game plays closer to tic-tac-toe meets Connect4.  The object is to get four cards of your color in a row.  You can cover one of your opponent's cards with one of yours if it has fewer dots on it than the one you want to play.  

Pencil Nose ($24.95) If you thought Pictionary was fun, wait until you try Pencil Nose, the game where you draw with a marker attached to your nose!  Pick a card, put on the wacky glasses that hold a marker, and get creative on a transparent plastic board.  Your friends have to guess what your trying to convey.  This one is great for holiday get-togethers.

The Slow-Motion  Race Game($54.99) Maybe you saw the gang on the Today Show playing this game when the Toyportfolio.com revealed its Platinum Awards earlier this month.  This is a race game with a difference.  You try to beat your opponent while moving as slow as possible.  Go too fast and the sensor buzzes you out!
