Think Fun provided us with an advanced copy of their newest game: Escape The Room The Cursed Dollhouse for free to play and review. Opinions are our own.

I love solving puzzles and figuring out clues in games. while I have never been to an actual escape room I have played a few home versions of escape rooms. Back in 2017 we reviewed the Think Fun escape room, Mystery at StarGazer Manor. We loved that game and even though it was for recommended ages 10 and up Andy who was 6 or so at the time could still actively participate and he enjoyed it. With this newest game it promises to be the scariest one yet. Think fun is not playing about that at all. This escape room is creepy and is recommended for ages 13 and up. If your child gets easily freaked out over creepy things then please take my advice and wait till they are older. Andy was really creeped out by the game. Eva was fine and wants to keep playing. I think Andy had his fill as we tried to go through 2 of the rooms.

Review: Pizza Party Throwdown

Pizza Party Throwdown

We recieved a free copy of the new game Pizza Party Throwdown from Hog Wild Toys to play with and review. Opinions are our own.

Who doesn’t love pizza? I know that I am a huge fan of the stuff. There is a place on Cape Cod that we love and it is not officially Summer until we have their pizza. But we don’t generally fling our pizza toppings onto the pizza as it spins. We save that for when we play Pizza Party Throwdown from Hog Wild Games. This new game is a lot of fun and can be played on several different skill levels.

The premise is simple, use the pizza chef that you have to fling toppings up and onto a spinning pizza. That is the easy part. However you can test yourself and do a half and half pizza where you try to only fling you toppings on one specific half of the pizza. You can also attempt to fill just one quarter of the pizza with your toppings. There are the various options and some skill involved. Plus there is utter chaos and mayhem afoot when trying to get the hang of the fling. That makes for some silly fun.

We played several times together as a family and then it was down to Andy and me playing together. He got super silly and tried to fling all of the toppings onto the spinning pizza. He managed to get a few on and the rest all over the place. The pizza toppings are almost like little window clings in that they will stick to a smooth glossy surface. Andy thought it would be fun to attempt to fling toppings on my freshly shaved head. He got a couple up there, too.

Silly fun, for ages 4 and up, easy to set up and needs no batteries. Great little family game for $20. If you are so inclined to pick up this game please consider using our Amazon.com affiliate link below.
