I get so, I guess you can call it melancholy, when someone mentions board games. I can remember as a kid playing with my cousin as my aunts, uncles, Mom & Dad played games like Rook, Scrabble and aggravation. As I got older I was invited to play games such as Life, Monopoly & Scrabble.
Did you know of the kid that had everything as it came out? Or was you that kid. While my parent’s tried to give me and my siblings what we wanted, we couldn’t always have everything. That is why it was good that I did have a cousin that got everything. I could go to her house and play with all the latest dolls, puzzles, coloring books and latest games. Since I thought she didn’t know how to play Barbie’s right (she dressed them a lot, I made them talk) we would spend hours playing board games. Connection, Battle ship, operation, connect 4 and on and on.
This was a time before video games came into our worlds. Of course she was the first one to get an Atari, but to me those board games was what I remember the most.
Now I see my niece and nephew and other children. You rarely see any of them asking for board games. It is usually a video game you see on their lists. I will have to say that my niece and nephew did ask for and got a Sorry Game and Life game this Christmas.
One of my favorite games to play was a game called Shopping Spree. Imagine that! I haven’t seen one of those in a long time. If you do see it though, I would suggest you get it and play with your daughter or your son!
While those games are always etched in my memory, I am always excited to learn of a new game. Especially when it is not only a video game, but a game the family can play and bond together.
That is why I was excited about a game called “Show me the Kwan”.
Do you always know the right words to say?
With only 12 letters to choose from and a wacky category on your hands it’s time to Show Me The Kwan!
Beat the clock and forget about spelling rules with this one-letter word game.

I was sent one a couple weeks ago so I could see just what it was. To me it was really fun. I also think it would be a perfect way for children that are being homeschooled to learn the fun way. It is all about the fun right? For $20.00 this game is actually cheaper then most homeschool books and a much more fun way to learn for kids.
If you are someone that likes word games, this is also for you. Do you do crosswords? Play scrabble? Watch game shows like Lingo? This game is for you!
