Haywire Group- It's all FUN and GAMES! Game Review


Bodydoodles is a drawing game where your body is the canvas!
  1. Take a Doodle card.
  2. Take a Body card.
  3. Pick the player you want to ink!
Players race to guess what the tattoo is and earn points for correctly guessing and drawing. In the party game where everyone gets to tattoo and be tattooed, how will you leave your mark? For 3 or more players.

My Review:
This is a great game to pull out during your family Christmas Celebrations.  The suggested age is 8 and above but I think many younger kids would want to still be a part of this game with a little help from an adult.   

I know some people might disagree that this game will make their child want to get a real tattoo but I say I guess it is all how you approach it.   The ink is all waterproof and non toxic.  Honestly, my family and I have already had plenty of fun using washable markers and drawing on daddy's back.   

Th game is played similar to other drawing games such as Pictionary but this one is on your skin.   Your tweens and teens might have the most fun with Bodydoodles so wrap it up and have some fun on Christmas Day!  





DICEcapades! 2nd Edition will be available November 3, 2014
Same great game as the original version but now with more cards!  Think you can stack dice on your face? Will you dominate in arm wrestling?  How about obscure facts?  Got a handle on those?  With a mixture of dice games, physical challenges, artistic creations, and trivia questions that will exercise both sides of your brain, you'll see why DICEcapades isn’t just the luck of the dice - it’s the smarts of the roller!
This tabletop game will provide hours of fun with your friends and family. Customize the length of the game to fit your time frame - whether you want to play a marathon session or a quick game, the rules are adaptable to fit what YOU want!
Need more cards?  Pick up one of our DICEcapades Expansion Packs - available January 2015.

My Review:
I had the opportunity to pull this game out at one of the Thanksgiving meals we went to.  The game is a bit overwhelming with all the cards and dice but it is fairly simple once you get going.   The group of people I played with ranged in ages and in my opinion I think a younger group of kids and teens would have more fun with this game... maybe that was just my experience.  

The game has goofy and silly tasks to do and when I was playing we didn't play long enough to get the rolling belly laughs.   I am looking forward to playing again with a group that is truly ready to embarrass themselves for fun!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
