Rubik’s Race & OutSmart: Family Friendly Board Games

Rubik's Race Game

The holidays are fast approaching, and just in time for this special season I would like to introduce you to a couple of family friendly games that are great holiday gift ideas. They are also great for parties and perfect for getting your family playing together.

The first game is Rubik’s Race (ages 5+). This is a head-to-head Rubik’s Cube board game. I remember playing with a Rubik’s Cube when I was very young and challenging my friends and family to see who solved it the fastest, really great times!

Rubik’s Race is a fast paced two-player board game that allows you to relieve the Rubik’s Cube play fun. Just shake the scrambler and shift and slide the tiles and be the firsts to make the 3×3 centre match the patter to win. So much fun!

Outsamrt GameThe second game is OutSmart (ages 8+). OutSmart is a super fun fast paced game that engages creative thinking. You can play the game by selecting a questions and writing the answer to the question on an answer sheet.  All questions have multiple correct answers and players must write the answers trying to pick the less obvious answer. Points are given for answers that no one else comes up with. I love this game, so exciting! It really gets you thinking.

Both board games would definitively make great holiday gifts for friends and family. Be sure to pick up a copy of each if you are hosting any holiday parties this year, playing fun board games is a really inexpensive way to keep your family entertained!
