Happy TV Turnoff Week! That’s right, April 18-24 is national TV Turnoff Week, as well as school vacation week for many schools. There’s no better way to pass the time than to play some great Gamewright games and tackle a challenging Ceaco jigsaw puzzle! Here are some of my recommendations:
The Baffler is a perfect puzzle for the person looking for a challenge. Each puzzle image is randomly designed and cut in the oddest ways to make it as tricky as possible. The Baffler has no straight edges, no overlapping images and many unique shapes.
Pinkalicious is one of the hottest kid properties on the market, and Ceaco is proud to present a line of jigsaw puzzles based on the best-selling book series, Pinkalicious and Silverlicious. Our line features a 24 piece floor puzzle, a 60 piece glitter puzzle and a 24 piece puzzle and sticker set.
Comic Relief is a wacky cartoon puzzle by artist Robert Crisp. We have an oversized 300 piece and 750 piece puzzle series featuring his art.
Forbidden Island: I know I’ve blogged a lot about Forbidden Island, but it really is a spectacular game and perfect for TV Turnoff Week. Why? Because it’s a cooperative game, (i.e. you’re working together to beat the game, not each other) it has the feel of a video game. It’s perfect for the family that’s struggling to turn off that TV
Sumo Ham Slam: This game is slam packed with action, and you’ll be hearing more about this very silly game in an upcoming post. Plus, you just can’t go wrong with a game that puts sumo wrestling hamsters in the spotlight.
Too Many Monkeys is a card game that will keep you playing round after round. The object is to get your cards in numerical order, 1-6, but there are lots of obstacles along the way (like Elephants, Giraffes and Skip cards). Not sure what I’m writing about? Go pick up a copy of your own and find out! Even better, how about winning a copy of Too Many Monkeys? Here’s our giveaway:
