Chronicle Books and Raincoast Publishers have sent me Llamanoes and Pass the Parcel, just in time for March Break, as part of the #PlayTestShare group. I’m going to give you a sneak peak at them plus give you a chance to win a game from a curated list. Keep reading to find out how.
My grandmother has never kept a lot of games at her house, even when we were young. The one that has remained, however, is an old orange box of wooden dominoes. Chances are, they are a collector’s item of some sort now. For us grandkids, however, they represented a lot of hours of play. Chronicle Books has combined the world’s current fascination with llamas and the classic game to bring you Llamanoes.
You’ll notice that these pieces are a laminated, high-gloss cardboard, rather than the much louder wooden ones we played with. This also means that other surfaces (including unsuspecting foreheads) are much safer from potential damage.
Llamanoes comes in it’s own flip top box and is very lightweight, making it great for travel. It retails for $18.99 MSRP
This holiday season, the interwebs were awash with tons of people unwrapping massive plastic wrap balls to reveal the prizes hidden inside. Sort of like a grown up version of musical chairs. Skip filling your recycling bin with all that plastic and opt for Pass the Parcel.
The instructions are pretty simple and the dares can be completed by players of almost any age. My girl is planning on breaking this one out when her friends come over for her birthday party this weekend. Feel free to re-wrap the game cards and play again and again. Retails for $23.95 MSRP
