I really, really like the idea of having everything in my life organized. My wife is fantastic at this, but I am not. Over the years, we’ll clean up our game closet and be surprised when it’s a disaster again in no time at all. We even have a little shelf just to keep loose cards and game pieces to “one day” put back in their proper boxes. And then this Quiver came along and solved all of our organizational problems! Not entirely true, but it sure did for certain games in some really great ways. =-)
An actual quiver is used to store arrows (seen Arrow?). This Quiver is used to protect, organize, and transport card games. It would be the perfect gift for anyone who owns a good amount of card games or trading cards.

I was surprised at how quickly I dove into this game from the very first time we played. It’s so simple on the surface, but there is a good amount of spacial strategy at play. Throw in the special action tiles, and you’ll soon find you can’t get enough! The Bears and the Bees is perfect for families with young kids, grandparents to play with their grandchildren, or as a fun warm-up or filler game for your heavier game nights.

Nuts About Mutts is a fun one to pull out with your kids before dinner, at a family party, or, as we did recently, on the hotel coffee table after a long drive when mom and dad were too tired to take the kids swimming! It’s super simple, the canine artwork is adorable (has induced many high-pitched “Awwwwww”s from our kids!), and the replay value is quite high, for kids especially. We’ve played it frequently lately as it is our 4-year-old’s favorite game right now. =-)

Golf is a simple yet fun game to pull out with the kids or guests when you want to chat about the weather, families, work, religion, politics, or life in general. I call it a great background game where the focus is on each other and relationships, not necessarily the game itself. It doesn’t require much mental thought but still has some fun cheering and groaning moments.

Cover Your Assets is a quick-to-learn, quick-to-play card game that does not, I repeat, does NOT have anything to do with sets or runs. While there are some fun ones out there, I usually get tired of them quickly and replay value is low for me. Cover Your Assets is awesome. The story line is simple: protect your assets in the form of baseball cards, jewelry, a classic car, and more…or the coveted gold and silver (worth a lot!). The player whose net worth reaches $1,000,000 first wins (takes several rounds). Now, we all know that in real life, assets get stolen and fought over (either legally or physically!). While I sincerely hope no fist fights break out while playing Cover Your Assets, there will be plenty of thefts and power battles.

First of all, Tiny Epic really is tiny! The box is about the length of my hand. But don’t be deceived! There is a boatload of fun packed into this tiny little box. I consider this series the ultimate “travel” game series. Normally when we pack up games for a game night or just heading out to family’s house, we have several canvas bags stretched to their tearing point with just several standard box sized games. Not so with Tiny Epic! Our diaper bag alone could fit four or five of them. It’s the perfect “grab-and-go” game.
