Qwirkle Board Game and Qwirkle Cubes

Qwirkle comes in two different versions – a board game (but there is no board as in the true board sense) and also Qwirkle Cubes.
On this page we will be mainly talking about Qwirkle – the board game version.  Qwirkle

When it comes to playing family games, especially on family game night, you want to make sure that you have the right kind of games to include the whole family no matter what their age or skill level may be.

Many times it can be difficult to find a type of game that will entertain younger children as well as teens and adults.
One of these types of  games is called Qwirkle and this game is both fun, entertaining and enjoyable for all who play.

Although it’s not a new game it may be one that you might not have heard of before since it has not been advertised as much as more expensive games.

This game can be played by 2 to 4 players ages about 6 years old and up.
Each game only lasts about 45 minutes so even younger ones will keep their attention.
The game includes 108 wooden blocks and you play by arranging colors and designs in a strategic manner.  It won the Mensa Best Mind Game Award in 2007 as well as the Major Fun Award in the same year. In addition, it has won an award from Games Magazine as the Best Family Game Runner-up in 2007.

However, don’t let the Mensa Best Game Award scare you off – it is a very simple game to learn and play so younger children will not have a hard time keeping up. Qwirkle however, is a strategy game and those who are older can plan and optimize their steps against their opponents and this is where this game shines. Who would have thought that a game so simple could also be so involved?

Syma Helicopters For Low Cost Family Fun

Syma Helicopters became a shining star when they were first released as a 2 channel RC helicopter. Then during the Christmas rush, a 3 channel was released and even though Christmas is long gone, the Syma helicopters are still in great demand and continue to fly off of store shelves ( if you can find then that is).      Syma Helicopters

There are many low cost RC helicopters on the market and to be perfectly frank many are pure junk. Sure you have seen the ads and they look terrific but when you bring them home, they don’t perform like they do on the commercials or when you have a professional sales person demonstrating them.

Customer are leavings glowing reviews for the Syma Helicopters

However with over 700 customer reviews at Amazon ( you can read the reviews here –>Syma Helicopter customer reviews) you will see how the Syma 3 Channel Helicopters are different from the rest.
Several customer were so impressed that they sent in videos of their helicopter in motion.  Sure, you will see a few reviews where the customer stated that their helicopter was less than expected, but these are few are far between. (more…)
