Toys for Tots

Our annual Toys for Tots drive is in full swing. We give 20% off all toys purchased at Becky & Me Toys to be donated to the Toys for Tots bin. Or you can just drop off other toys in our bin. (Of course we prefer the former!) The Marines are so dedicated to this project which benefits many less fortunate children.

Qwirkle & Perpetual Commotion

Thanksgiving night and weekend is a great time to pull the family together for a game night. We love games and want to recommend a few of our favorites. Come in any time and our staff will gladly teach them to you. We love games!! Here are a few suggestions:

Qwirkle is as simple as matching colors and shapes, but this game also requires tactical maneuvers and well-planned strategy. Earn points by building rows and columns of blocks that share a common shape or color. Look for opportunities to score big by placing a tile that touches multiple pieces with matching attributes. The player with the most points wins! 108 wooden blocks. 2 to 4 players.

View a Qwirkle video here on Mindware’s YouTube channel!

Our second selection is Perpetual Commotion:

Perpetual Commotion is an outrageously fast and incredibly addictive card game. Play your cards — as many and as fast as you can — into a common arena. To win, you must play faster and more aggressively than your opponents. Perpetual Commotion is one part strategy, two parts speed, and a healthy dose of “luck-of-the-draw.” It’s a heads-up, quick hand free-for-all, as opponents race to play the same cards, at the same time, on the same freshly opened spot. To control the chaos, you must know your cards, know their cards and plan two moves ahead. Empty your Feeders pile first and you win the round. Get to 150 points first and you win the game. This game is a blast, a real commotion…

Dare to discover “Forbidden Island”!

Forbidden Island is the great new cooperative game for kids ages 10 and older! Play as a team of adventurers trying to collect the four treasures of the island before it sinks below the ocean. Because of the way it is set up, the island will present a different challenge every time you play. To win the game, all players have to work together and use their characters’ special abilities strategically. We love Forbidden Island and we hope that you will too!
