Do you hold a family game night in your house? With the way my entire family is glued to electronics, family game night is a great way to reconnect with each other and just enjoy each others company over some friendly (and intense) competition. We always checked which board game to try out next by looking at GameHubHQ.com but recently kicked our family game night up a notch with some new game additions from RoosterFin Games.

Of course classic games are always a hit during our family game nights, but it’s also fun to try out some new games. The newest additions to our game collection include Bouncing Bots and Lumpy Cubes Hero Edition from RoosterFin Games.
We first tried out Bouncing Bots and while it’s a simple concept, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Each player gets two bots of the same color and taking turns, you try to bounce your bots onto number values on the scoring boards. The player with the highest score, wins.
Sounds easy, right? Not so much. I have been having a hard time perfecting the bot bounce, so my bots either bounce off the board or don’t even make it near the board at all. If this is a problem for everyone, you can flip the scoring boards over so they’re more of a bowl shape, making it easier to get the bots to stay on the board. My son on the other hand has been practicing and he’s become our resident professional at Bouncing Bots.
After I got tired of losing at Bouncing Bots, we moved on to Lumpy Cubes Hero Edition. This game is more about testing your memory, reaction time, and motor skills.
Each player gets four lumpy cubes of the same color. Everyone has 10 seconds to memorize the stack pattern on the card and then they have to stack their lumpy cubes to match the card. Whoever does it correctly the fastest yells “Lumpy” and gets the card. The player to collect three cards first, wins.
Lumpy Cubes Hero Edition is my favorite of our two new games. Again, it has a simple concept, but what makes this game challenging, aside from a good memory, is that there are four different faces on the cubes. Each cube as one of the four faces on the front and a different one on the back.
There have been many times I’ve gotten three cubes stacked and when I get to the top I don’t have the face I need to finish it. I then have to find where that face is on the back of the cubes I’ve already stacked and figure out how to adjust the cubes to meet the pattern on the card. It can get pretty tricky.
What types of games does your family like to play? Both of these from RoosterFin Games are great options for the whole family. They’re both curated for ages 6+, have simple concepts, but are challenging at the same time. And another perk is that they don’t have a ton of pieces that can get lost.
RoosterFin Games are perfect gifts for kids and even the whole family this holiday season. Gift RoosterFin and let the competition begin!
