Shadows in the Forest with the kids

We received a copy of Shadows in the Forest from ThinkFun to play and review. Opinions are our own.

We enjoy playing board games together. The newest game for the family to play together is Shadows in the Forest. This game is partially cooperative and competitive. One player is in charge of the lantern and they must travel through the forest and attempt to catch Shadowlings in the light.

Review: Color Cube Sudoku from ThinkFun

We received Color Cube Sudoku for free from ThinkFun to play with and review. Opinions of the game are 100% our own. I have also included Amazon.com affiliate links so that you can get the game for yourself.

The other day we had a family game day. While we played a bunch of games for the whole family to enjoy there were also some individual games for everyone to enjoy. One of the games was Color Cube Sudoku from ThinkFun. This is a rather challenging game but then again, if games were easy they wouldn’t keep our attention. This game is unlike any others that I have seen from ThinkFun. There are no individual cards that tell you where to place pieces. You pretty much place one of the cubes into one of the nine spaces and from there attempt to arrange the rest of the cubes so that you solve the puzzle. Here is the official description of the game.
