North Star Games Has Something For Everyone!

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**

I love board games.  I grew up with them, and even when I was a young adult (before kids,) that was a fun pass time for Ben and I to do.  We would play for hours with our best friend Chris.  

I have taught the kids that technology is not everything, and that you can have as much fun with board games as you can with video games.

North Star Games sent me two fun games to play with the kids.  The first one is Happy Holidays.

Ages: 6+   |   Players: 3-8   |

Happy Holidays! gets everyone laughing as soon as they open the box. It’s the hilarious game where players take turns surprising each other with unique gifts. From a remote-controlled robot to your own private island, Happy Holidays! is filled with full-color pictures of wacky and wonderful gifts. Which one would you give? Which one would you like to receive?

Happy Holidays! is the perfect stocking stuffer and will turn any holiday gathering into a party!

How to Play

Everybody gives you a gifts from their hand.
You pick the best…and worst.

Those players get a point!

This is a great way to learn from people what gifts they value the most and what you should never ever buy!!!

The other game I was sent was Wits and Wagers.

Ages: 10+   |   Players: 4-unlimited   |
With over 1 million sold, Wits & Wagers has become a modern classic and is still the most award-winning party game in history!  Wits & Wagers Deluxe Edition is the same game you know and love, but now loaded with upgrades!

- New casino-quality wagering chips
- Crease-free felt mat
- Deluxe dry-erase markers with erasers
- Premium cardboard currency chips

Best of all, Wits & Wagers Deluxe Edition is the same great price as the original Wits & Wagers!

How to Play

Do you know the average number of pizza slices eaten by Americans each day? Of course not! That’s the fun. No one knows the answers, but everyone can take a guess. The felt betting mat and different payout odds will make you feel like a Vegas high roller. Get lucky and you’ll cheer like you hit the jackpot!

Read a fun question...Everyone writes down a guess.
Place your bets... Which guess is closest?
Feeling confident? Bet on yourself.
Think others know better? Bet on them.

No idea? Bet on any guess and hope to get lucky.

This is a very fun trivia like game.  You bet on how much you think you know the answer to some crazy questions.  If you are absolutely sure you have no clue, bet on someone else's answer!!  Ben Jr, Ben Sr and I almost always say that we are sure we are right.  Doug always bets on someone else.  He usually wins!!  This is a ton of fun to see how smart you and your friends are!!

North Star Games has games for people of all ages.  It is a great way to spend some quality family time together!! 

You can purchase the games directly from their site, or through Amazon!!  Hurry, some are still available to receive before Christmas!!
