Games for Grown Ups and Big Kids
Gather the Gang and Play!
The kids are getting older. Tweens and Teens and (omigolly) College Students. It would be great if they dropped their devices and played a table-top board game. These are some of our favorite long-playing, strategic, or quick-thinking games for big kids and grown ups.
If you don't see something that works for your group, stop by and we'll help you find the perfect fit!

Who can make the best meme?
In your hand, several picture cards. On the table, a caption card. Pick your photo that goes with the caption, and lay it face down. The judge mixes up all the pictures, then turns them over and decides. Who has the best match? Each round has a new judge so everyone gets a chance to be ludicrous, literal, and most definitely creative!
It's like upvoting, but in a format even the grandparents will understand!

As a skilled artisan, you will use tools-of-the-trade and careful planning to construct a stained glass window masterpiece in the Sagrada Familia.
Players will take turns drafting glass pieces, represented by dice; carefully choosing where to place each one in their window. Windows have unique color and shade requirements, and similar dice may never be adjacent so placing each die is more challenging than the last. It’s a beautiful pattern game that is easy to learn.

Limited quantities of the Sagrada 5 - 6 player expansion pack also available.
