Not Your Usual Family Friendly Games!

Playing games together is one of the best family activities. You open up lines of communication. You get to create shared memories. You spend time together and have fun. Well... Fun if the game is a good one. Nothing worse than getting stuck playing something not-fun-boring.

These are not not-fun-boring. These are games you'll want to play again and again!

Rhino Hero & Rhino Hero Super Battle

Do not let 5 yrs and up lead you to think this is simple! Rhino Hero and Rhino Hero Super Battle are games that are crazy fun with big kids and grown ups, as well as a younger crew. You need spatial judgement and steady nerves. And a solid table!

Rhino Hero

2 - 5 players, 5 yrs & up
Haba

What is that? Is that a rhino climbing up the wall? Rhino Hero is out and about again. The super hero from the animal world fearlessly scales the highest houses looking for burglars and rogues. He is strong as a lion and as smart as a fox, but also as heavy as a rhinoceros. So when Rhino Hero is around even the most robust tower may start to get a little wobbly...

Can you help Rhino Hero accomplish his teetery-tippy construction mission and build a skyscraper as tall and solid as possible? A heroic 3D card-stacking game!


Rhino Hero Super Battle

2 - 4 players, 5 yrs & up

Rhino Hero is back on the job! And this time, not only does the wobbly skyscraper need to be climbed, but there will be fierce battles between four superheroes: Rhino Hero himself and three new additions: Giraffe Boy, Big E. and Batguin. Who will win the battles and successfully fend off the mean spider monkeys? Rhino Hero Super Battle is the stand-alone sequel you'll love as much as the original Rhino Hero!

Want to make it even tougher? Add the original Rhino Hero game to this one for a mega-stacking-building-tumbling challenge for the whole family!

Don't lose your train of thought! 5-Second Rule Jr. is a game that requires you to spit out items that belong in a category... Before your 5 seconds of time run out! So can you do it?

They dash through, collecting the items they need, coordinating their actions, and clearing the way for each other. All without speaking a word!

Each character has a unique directional ability. Everyone plays at the same time, racing the timer to complete their tasks. Can you and your crew do it ? Find out when you take on this inventive and seriously fun game!

Pictomania

Czech Games

Pictomania

Can you draw a ninja? Well, can you kind of draw a ninja? In Pictomania, a rough sketch can be good enough.

Pictomania is the drawing game with no teams and no waiting. Everyone gets to draw, and everyone gets to guess, all at the same time! No one has time to draw a complex masterpiece. The player who can sketch the essence of a word with a few lines will have more time to figure out the other players' drawings. And more time to laugh at them!

Q-Bitz

2 - 4 players; 8 yrs & up
MindWare

Q-Bitz Puzzle Game

Puzzling for speed!

Everyone has a set of puzzle cubes that need to be arranged to match the card. Seems relatively simple, right? It can be… Or it can be devilishly difficult! Q-Bitz has three ways to play:

  • Option 1: Everyone races to place their cubes to match the pattern card.
  • Option 2: Everyone rolls their cubes, and then only using the face-up sides, they try to complete as much of the pattern as possible, re-rolling as many times as they can before time runs out.
  • Option 3: Everyone races to place their cubes, but you only get to look at the pattern card for 10 seconds. Yikes!

This game has been around for several years. And we keep stocking it because it’s a winner!
