After the week, I had as I shared here, this past Friday night I did some binge DVR TV watching. I needed my comedy fix and get my laugh on, to be honest, which included Two Broke Girls and The Goldbergs.
Both brought me back to my youth this past week for different reasons. Two Broke Girls did with an 80s homage to the likes of Teddy Ruxbin (my brother totally had this bear) and The Goldbergs (week the show is after all set in the 80s) with some good old fashioned family board game playing. Yes siblings, Barry and Erica Goldberg, totally shined in their competitive board game playing ways with their playing the board game, Trivial Pursuit.
Watch the clip, if you don’t believe me, but was truly finally feeling so much more relaxed and stressed by the end of this:
By the way, it was The Goldbergs that made me decide to try to start up a family game night though for the girls this weekend (don’t ask me about how stressful Saturday morning was, but still). As luck would have it, it is getting colder and darker here earlier with the end of Daylight Savings time, so staying in during the evenings in becoming a must for us. Plus with both kids under the weather, really not wanting to take them out in the cold fall, almost winter like temperatures later in the day anymore.
Also, I was recently asked if we would try a new hot board game that broke into all the major stores this past summer called, Tic Stac Toe by the creator Robert Appleblat for Pressman Games. Can we say perfect timing!
Tic Stac Toe is a unique and clever 3D spin on a classic favorite from the past otherwise known as Tic Tac Toe . First off, it is so much fun for the whole family, but this game also helps kids with spacial thinking and since it’s launch Tic Stac Toe has won the 2014 Creative Child Award, the Tillywig Best Family Fun Award and the Parents Choice Recommended Game Award. Very exciting indeed!
And trust me, I have such fond memories of playing the original Tic Tac Toe game with just pen and paper back in the day. But I also was a board game lover with games such as The Goldbergs with Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly, Chutes and Ladders, even Candy Land and so many more as I grew up!
So, I knew I couldn’t pass up this opportunity for my family, as well as myself!
What ensued was just a fun, loud and memorable Saturday night with Kevin, the girls and even myself not only enjoying ourselves, but laughter reigning as we competed to see who could win the most at Tic Stac Toe!
By the way Sunday morning, Emma asked me if we could play Tic Stac Toe again during the day? So, as Kevin said, “We might have created a board game playing monster!
To get yours for your family this upcoming holiday season, because I am telling you this is the perfect gift for all the kids on Santa’s list, you can find it at Target, Toys R Us and even Kohls, too. You can also follow Tic Stac Toe on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well.
Also, please watch a very short Youtube video clip of the girls being silly, but proudly shouting as Kevin taught them to say when they made a competitive move, “In Your Face!”
