I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Saturday Special - Review and Giveaway Reverse Charades

Me - Reverse charades, wow! Reverse charades is an incredibly fun game. To begin with, I love charades. It is fun for different ages. Me, my big brother, my little sister, my mom and  all love it. It is rare to find something that my brother and I both like because we are so different. It is easy to play because you don't have to know anything but how to read. Actually, even if you don't know how to read you can still play. My sister plays, and she is just learning to read. One time when we were playing our team had to be unicorns. We held our forefingers up to our foreheads and just pranced around back and forth around the room. It was so much fun! It is great to play with a team, but we like it so much that sometimes my mom and my sister and I just take turns acting out and guessing words. I would highly recommend this game.

Mom - Reverse charades is a really funny game. It is played by splitting into teams. However, instead of each team guessing the words the other team is acting out, each team guesses the words their own team members act out. Each team member takes a turn being the guesser. The guesser has one minute to guess as many words as they can correctly. Whichever teams guesses the most words is the winner. We were given the Junior edition for review. I like this game because it is simple. You don't need a lot of pieces just a deck of cards with the words to be acted out and a timer. It is a fun game for many ages and both genders. Melia's older brother and younger sister enjoyed it just as much as Melia did. It is fun for kids and adults. I enjoyed it as much as my children did. It is easily adaptable. A child who cannot read can at least help guess the words. You can play for a certain amount of time or you can play a certain number of rounds or you can play until one team reaches a certain number of  points. Also, even if you only have two people you can take turns acting out and guessing words.

There are two main editions the original Reverse Charades and  Reverse Charades Junior. Each is available for $23.99. There are also expansion packs available for $9.99. The game is available for purchase at Barnes and Noble and Learning Express among other places. You can also purchase it directly from the web-site reversecharades.com.
