PlayMonster sent us a copy of Stacktopus for free to play with and review. Opinions are our own.

With everyone being sequestered to their homes and all after school activities cancelled we have plenty of family time and lucky for our kids I have a stack of great games and fun things to do during this time. Case in point, Stacktopus. Stacktopus is a silly game where you stick tentacle fingers on your own fingers. they call them silly sea fingers in the instructions. They go on your thumb forefinger and middle finger. While wearing these you have to try to stack or arrange a set of colorful cups. they could be nested inside each other, stacked on top of each other and so many other combinations. The game is for 1-3 players and can be some very silly fun. I played with Eva and Andy and we had a good time. I just wish that the silly sea fingers would fit my fingers, they were too small for me but this is a game for ages 5 and up. If you have big fingers like me you’re going to have a tough time. Andy had no problem and neither did Eva. They were way quicker than I was at playing this game. My thumb kept falling off.

Look at that concentration from Andy. He was so good at this game.

You can pick up Stacktopus for $17.99 and your kids will have some very silly fun while playing. You can find more information on the game at the PlayMonster website.

Break Out the Board Games

Board Games

Before I went ot bed this morning I asked Allison if she and the kids could take a look through all of our board games and thin them out. Because I receive so many toys and games we have had an overflow of board games. The kids have outgrown quite a few of them and so it was time to go through them and determine which ones we really wanted to keep and which ones to give away. The image above is the result of their hard work. What is not pictured is a large box of board games that they either have outgrown or no longer play.

with the kids being home for the next three weeks, at least, we are going to be playing plenty of board games and I just received a bunch more for us to try out. We’re also going to be playing card games like Pokemon and Magic the Gathering. We are even going to do a Dungeons and Dragons campaign at some point. We are even going to build our own Dice tower.
