Funnybone Games Array and Spec-Trix


Hi neighbors!

Here are a couple of great games for your gift giving!  They are Array and Spec-Trix from Funnybone Toys. Now, I will tell you in advance, these are not games to play in the car while traveling.  You do need room to spread out the cards with this game, but they are well worth bringing with you to play when you arrive. Also, these cards are sturdy and will hold up quite well.  They are not thin like regular cards, but are a bit thicker and should last longer.

We have played both games and while both are quite a bit of fun, the hands down favorite for us is Spec-Trix.  These games are well-made, colorful and fun!

Here is what the cards look like!
We played Array first.  it does take some thinking while playing this game.  Array is designed for 2-5 players, so we could not all play at the same time.  The girls and I played after lunch the first time.  It was fun trying to slice, splice, splatter and slam our way to be the first to play all our cards.  It was funny to see someone who had been slammed try to get even with the person who slammed them!  The whole goal is to use your cards up and stay under 100 points.  You do need a pen/pencil and a sheet of paper to keep score.  I won our first round!  Yeah!
Just started the game.

I like having a Splatter card!
Making a move.

This one grew!
Love the colors!
Spec-Trix was next on the table.  This game is a little easier, but can also be confusing trying to keep track of the colors and to use them in the proper order of the color sequence.  Just to share with you here, the children are playing this one as I am writing this.  You can also use Spec-Trix as a memory matching game and to learn colors!  WOW!  Breaking news: My son won!
Your spectrum of colors.

Just starting.  Who will win?

Someone's hand!


Funnybone Toys also has a game called CUBU.  Here are the rules:

 A little about Funnybone Toys games:

Owner Julien Sharp with her team of creative geniuses has uncovered a niche that is quickly spreading -- offering hip, museum-quality products that encourage casual entertainment that complements conversation -- no matter what your age. And since everyone appreciates a little glamour in his or her day, Funnybone Toys' three sets of card games brighten up any room. The card sets' color and design may be appreciated consciously or subconsciously but they always attract the players' senses for beauty, design and pleasure. The unanimous response when gift hunters pick up a card box is, “Wow, these are really cool!”

What's the secret behind Funnybone Toys’ meteoric rise in the tough-as-nails toy and game business? Sharp, an expert on people at their leisure, believes there is a passion for smart play for adults as well as children. All age groups are drawn to entertainment that is beautifully designed (think of every new Apple product!). Their first three card games combine a seamless blend of engaging play patterns, vibrant colors and stunning graphics. Everyone can play the games, from age 8 and up. And at $14.99, they’re priced as an affordable and beautiful gift.

These cards are very well made.

What will she play this time?

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1.

Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
