FAMILY MOMENT MONDAY
Finding a game that is great for all ages can be hard to do. With kids varying in ages and interests, it is tough to get them to agree on a game to even play sometimes. So, instead of fighting over whether the family is going to play Polly Princess Dress Up or fight for global domination in Risk, have your family try one of the "Scene It" games.
In "Scene It" players answer trivia questions about films or pop culture. The game comes with a DVD that shows clips, puzzles, word scrambles, and pictures that have to do with movies. Players must answer and move their pieces around the board to win. It is a simple enough game, but truly one that Curtis and I have enjoyed.
The original "Scene It" isn't really appropriate for younger children, because they probably won't know the movies, but the company has other "Scene It" editions that are appropriate for all ages. These ones include fun family themes of, Harry Potter - edition 1 & 2, Disney editions 1 & 2, Nickelodeon, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Disney Channel.
They are really as much fun, or even more, than the original "Scene It". Curtis and I have played the Harry Potter one many times with friends and with our nieces and nephews. It's fun to see how they have made each edition themed with the game. For example, in the Harry Potter one, you can play as Hedwig, the Sorting Hat, Hogwarts Express, or the Snitch. You can win House Points for your team and answer muggle facts. It is really fun to see the creativity that is put into each game.
You can find the games at most places like Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, or anywhere on-line and they cost anywhere from $14.00 to $34.00. That can depend on what edition you get to where you buy it from. Amazon.com is a great place to purchase them for a good price normally. I would suggests the Harry Potter, Disney , or Scene It Jr. edition if there are children playing. To check out a list of all their editions, check here, they have them listed for their age suggestions.
