It’s a #GameOnParty!
There’s really nothing like having downright, wholesome fun and nothing better than enjoying it with your family. I was invited to host my very own Mattel Game Night and of course, I jumped at that chance! We love having good laughs, a challenge and an excuse to party! And believe me–we were ready to do just that!
A Box of Goodies!
When this bad boy came, we were all very excited to see what was inside. What makes this Mattel Game On Kit so unique is that is catered to YOU. I took Mattel’s Gameology test on Facebook and it helped me to determine what “sign” I am. You can take this yourself and find out what your gaming sign is. You can even earn points and redeem them for prizes.
Turns Out I’m a Socialies:
For the Socialies, games are an event where winning comes second to making sure everyone has a good time. Their moves are unpredictable but in the end they get there. They are unorthodox players and yet against all odds, luck often ﬁnds them. This can be infuriating to other players, but Socialies have a way with words and can be counted on to make game night a great night.
Get Your Party Hats!
The Mattel Family Game Kit came equipped with awesome games, Phase 10, Skip-Bo, UNO, Mad Gab and Apples to Apples! Not to mention, napkins for messy noshers, bottle openers, coasters and fortune cookies! It also came with a really cool pad that you can attach to your fridge to make sure you are ready before the big day of the party.
We took advantage of a quiet Sunday and got the whole family together for an afternoon of good food, cold drinks and games! We got Aunts and Uncles, Grandparents, Grandkids and us to sit down and play our favorite games. We ordered the pizzas, chilled the beer (pop and chocolate milk too) and had a blast.
Don’t Forget to Say UNO!
This was one of our favorite games, it was such an easy game for the WHOLE family to play. We even did the odd’s and even’s! Gabby loved it and to be quite honest, she whooped us in most rounds! This game is definitely a family favorite and we were so happy to see it in the kit!
I think we spent a lot of time playing Skip-Bo and Phase 10. We played quite a few games of Skip-Bo and it got kinda rowdy! It was so much fun, I don’t think we’ve laughed that much in so long! Who would have thought so much fun can come inside a small can? And another thing, how did Mattel know me so well AND my family?
