This post is part of The  ❄️ 12 Days of Christmas ❄️

This is part 2 of a 4 part series meant to give some ideas for those looking for last minute gift ideas, or just interested in discovering some cool games. If you haven’t checked out part 1, which is a list of recommended children’s games and that sounds interesting, then I encourage you to check it out.

Play Time:  ~20 Minutes

Recommended Age Group:  8+

Player Count:  2-6

Duck! Duck! Go! is a whacky game about rubber ducks racing in the bathtub. It’s silly fun that actually has a lot of depth to it. However, the game isn’t very complicated which is partially aided by its theme.

If you know the old game, Robo Rally, then this game may seem familiar. All slots casino instant play winner poker no deposit bonus 2018 which is a game mechanic that is not often used. Programmable movement means that players decide simultaneously how their piece will move, once all players have decided, they reveal and turns are resolved based off of an intuitive order on the cards. This can cause the best laid plans to go awry, resulting in silly fun.

Antelope slot canyon pictures portable slot machine isaac system and much harsher results when plans didn’t go accordingly, Duck! Duck! Go! is quite forgiving and significantly easier to learn.

Players use this movement mechanic to race their duck to various buoys (objectives) on the board. The first to get them all and get back to the “finish drain” wins.

Duck! Duck! Go! is available at coolstuff.com for $16.49 but is currently out of stock (As of 12/6/15). However, for slightly more it is in stock and available at Amazon for $23.95 if you can’t wait.

3. Jamaica

Play Time:  40-60 Minutes

Recommended Age Group:  8+

Player Count:  2-6

Jamaica is a great game for larger families, or those who can muster a player count closer to 5 or 6. While the game is still good at lower player counts, it’s not nearly as much fun when it’s at or around its max.

Players take control of a pirate ship with the goal to be the first person to cross the finish line, while also having the most gold. Players do this by first rolling two dice. One is assigned to the “day” slot, and the other to the “night” slot.

While this may seem confusing, when you have the game in front of you, it’s very simple to understand. This game is a little bit more complicated than the other two games that have been on the list so far though. However, it really does make for an excellent family game that can be played with nearly anybody.

Jamaica is available at coolstuff.com for 39.49, which may seem expensive, but the price is well justified by the quality of the components and the stunning artwork.
