Tapple and Wonky Fun


 USAopoly Review

Hey neighbors!

Here is a review of Tapple - Fast Word Fun for Everyone and Wonky: The Crazy Cubes Card Game, both great games from USAopoly!  Both of these are really fun games, that you could include in a family fun night.  We like to get the whole family together at least once a week to play games.  We especially like ones where we interact with each other.

I am going to tell you about Wonky first.  This game is probably designed for children a little younger than mine, although my daughters still had fun when we played.  Wonky is for ages 8 and up.  My youngest is almost 15.  Anyway, Wonky is a fun stacking game with odd-shaped blocks of different sizes.  You have 3 different colored plastic shapes (squarish), in three different sizes, small, medium and large.  The first person draws a card and it will tell them either what color, or what size block they have to choose.  This will be the base you build on.  Each player in turn takes a new card and adds a block to the tower based on their card.  The whole idea is you can not touch the tower with your other hand and you can not move any of the previous blocks to help steady your's.  Needless to say, the first two moves are reasonably easy, but after that it gets a little tricky. I lost all of the first three games we played.  :(  Please do not think this is not a fun game because it is, I just think it might be for younger children then I have.

Tapple on the other hand although also for ages 8 and up was extremely well received.  We have played this numerous times and shared it with some of our friends.  Tapple has a circular game piece with 20 letters of the alphabet on white tabs.  There are cards in the base of the game that are needed for play.  You will need two AA batteries to play.  So, place your batteries in and turn your game on.  Shuffle the cards and get ready for some fun!  Decide if you are going to do the red or yellow on one side of the cards or the blue or white on the other.  We let the player who turned it over choose.  After they choose the category, they push the red button in the center of the game which starts the timer.  At this point they have to come up with a word that fits the category that begins with one of the letters on the tabs.  As soon as they think of a word, they press down the corresponding letter tab and hit the timer as the play proceeds to the next player.  You can only use the letters that are still in the up position.  Play continues around.  If you can not come up with a word before the buzzer sounds you are out and play continues without you.  Don't worry you will not be sitting there long as the game moves along pretty quickly.  Here are a few of the categories: In the Yard or Garden, Something Round, Bad Habits, Colors, or Ice Cream Flavors.  I mean try coming up with Ice Cream Flavors quickly that begin with J, K, or G.  Needless to say the last one left is the winner.  Yes, a few times we actually made it all the way through with everyone still in, but not often.

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.

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