With the continuation of Covid rules and regulations, more families are looking for ways to cope with social distancing. Many are embracing this experience with a positive attitude and finding ways to make it fun. After all, if we are going to be stuck indoors, let’s make the best of it. For us, this includes a big dose of good old fashioned fun and entertainment. And playing board games and card games are at the top of our list. They’re amusing, enjoyable and involve the whole family. Boardgame and constructions kit sales are skyrocketing and people are open to playing new games they might not otherwise have acknowledged. Some new games and kits in our home are PenSilly and Laser Pegs.
PenSilly Family Game
If you like wacky and weird games, then you’ll love PenSilly. The game comes with one PENSILLY pen holder, a 2-color marker, 150 subject, and description cards, 2 reusable drawing boards, and 1 sand timer. It does require 3 AAA batteries, which are not included.
There are two levels of play – with level one, the pen doesn’t shake as much. On level two, the pen is really shaking and vibrating lots so it’s more of a challenge to draw your subject. The idea is to draw a descriptive subject and have your teammates guess what it is. But hurry, tick-tock, you are on a timer.
To play the game, you insert one of the colored pens into the PenSilly holder. You’ll hear it click when it snaps into place. Now pick a card from each deck, turn on the PenSilly holder and draw, draw, draw on the erasable whiteboards. Hold tight though because the PenSilly shakes, wiggles and jiggles all over the place. With over 5,500 potential word clue combinations, you can play for hours and hours. It’s fun, it’s silly and the whole family will have a blast. It’s the perfect game to play during the holiday season and an ideal stocking stuffer!
