When we went to Granite State Comicon we learned about the game, Tiny Dungeon. This is a book that is a jumping on point for people to get interested in longer form RPG gaming like Dungeons and Dragons. We bought it at the convention but finally played today.

This morning Eva came into the office and she was interested in playing Magic : The Gathering with me. I had played once before at Hascon and that was the first and only time I had played. But we took out a deck and played. We went to the Magic website and watched a bunch of videos to get some learning in and we had fun playing. Not sure if we were right or anything but we had fun doing it. It makes me want to go and get all my Wildstorm cards out of storage because I may finally have a partner to play with!

Eva also saw my starter pack for Dungeons and Dragons, something else I had gotten at Hascon and started reading the book on that. She switch gears, however over to Tiny Dungeon and get right into playing that game. She wrote a 5 page adventure for the family to play. I now feel I must go and find some choose your own adventure books for her to read. Eva did a great job coming up with an adventure. She also dressed the part and loved being the dungeon master for the game. I was very proud of her.

We received the new game from PlayMonster for free to play with and review. Opinions are our own. We also have an amazon affiliate link for you to use to buy your own.

If yo are looking for a quick game with a lot of laughs then PlayMonster’s Don’t Rock the Boat is that game. It is super simple to set up and play and you can play about a dozen times in 5 minutes. The game goes especially quick with kids because they just drop the figures onto the boat and ultimately rock it and spill all the pieces off the boat.

The rules are super simple, too:

  1. Youngest player goes first
  2. Player picks a piece and puts it onto the ship
  3. Players keep repeating this until someone knocks a piece off the ship
  4. The last player to successfully place a piece on the ship without knocking anything off wins
Here was our gameplay and video review. The kids liked making up silly names for the cute penguin pieces.
