Sorry! Revenge, Yahtzee Hands Down, and Mille Bornes Card Game Review and Giveaway










Hi neighbors,

I received 3 card games from Hasbro and wanted to share them with you At the Fence. We received Mille Bornes, Sorry! Revenge, and Yahtzee Hands Down. We try to play games at least one night a week, but lately we have had a lot more time to play games. So, when these new games arrived we had to try them out. My children have all played Mille Bornes before, so it was a great favorite. Then we tried Yahtzee Hands down. A little complicated at first until we all understood all the rules, so we played through the first time with everyone showing their cards. After that, the game really took off. But, I have to say the game that became our favorite was Sorry! Revenge. The children want to play it during lunch, when they have a break, and it has quickly become an evening favorite. The only problem with the game? There are 8 of us and only four players at a time in the game. Sometimes we play teams, or we take turns and rotate out. Either way the playing often becomes quite hilarious as everyone teams up to beat dad, or the girls gang up on the boys.






These are definitely some fun games to have in the house and you can pick them up for only $6.99 each. My whole family says thumbs up to Hasbro's newest card games. I do have to say that Hasbro is the maker of some of our other favorite games. My one son loves Monopoly. So much so, that for awhile everyone refused to play with him. He was hard to beat! Then of course Clue and Scrabble are made by Hasbro and those would probably be right in line behind Monopoly. We actually use Scrabble occasionally for homeschooling. It is a fun way to gauge your children's spelling and where they might need some improvement.

Every family should have a game night! You can have snacks, play games and just have some fun together. It is a relaxing time for our family. We even played by candlelight, a few nights ago when our power went out. The children really thought that was great!




Hasbro is going to send one winner all three card games. Mille Bornes, Sorry! Revenge and Yahtzee Hands Down.

Monopoly Deal Card Game looks interesting.

Our family is always looking for games and playing them. I limit TV to only 2 hours a week so we do alot of game playing around here.

Card games are so easy to just toss in your bag and take anywhere so we are always on the lookout for those.

My kids favororite is The Game of Life. But they loaned it to a friend and when we got it back, well lets say it was less than playable.
