Games for Kids and Families - Winter 2019

New Games for Kids & Families Winter 2019

Gift Worthy Games for 6 yrs & up

The Happy Up stores are known for their family friendly games. We don't waste your time (or our shelf space!) with only so-so ho-hum meh games. If we're talking about them, we've played them. And we really liked them. And think you'll like them, too!

While we say these are good for kids and families, they're great for teens and grown-ups, as well.

Astro Trash

3 - 5 players, 6 yrs & up

2019 Winter Holiday Catalog Item

It’s a fast-rolling everyone-at-once pandemonium kind of game. The goal: Get the trash off your planet. By moving it to someone else’s. Problem: They’re all doing the same thing! Keep rolling and rolling, removing trash as the dice indicate. First one with a clean planet wins!

We’re totally hooked on this one!

2019 Winter Holiday Catalog Item

Collect the most rings, one leap at a time, morphing the sequence as you go.

Look at the ring around the peg the ball is sitting on. Consider your choices: color, size of inner ring, or pattern. Plan your moves, jumping the ball from ring to ring that has only one difference. So go from one color to another color, keeping the inner ring and pattern the same. Or from one size to another. Or from one pattern to another. And take the rings as you go. Can’t find another move? Your turn is up and the board is reloaded, challenging the next player to go as far as they can. The goal is to have the most rings at the end of the game.

It’s not as easy as you think!
