Continuum Games Lumps the Elf Coal Game and Family Talk 2 Board Games Review and Giveaway

Board games have always been something our whole family has enjoyed. We are big on family fun aspect and the challenge of playing one another. Quiz and strategy games where we play as teams can be hours of "low tech" entertainment that we can all enjoy. Especially when its different generations playing. What better time than the holidays to have some new games to play with family and friends.

We recently heard of the company Continuum Games. They make all sorts of games for all ages and age specific games for 3+ to 14+. There are many fun games for adults to play like Reverse Charades and Pitch It.

For this holiday season we had the chance to review Family Talk 2. This game is a conversation starter game. The game is played with cards and it asks random questions to spark conversation. As a family we are a bunch of chatter boxes so this game was more of a novelty. But I can see it working for a party where we have new people there and it would be a good ice breaker.

Game info:
  • Second edition of our popular Family Talk game
  • Fun, Portable family game of conversation keeps today’s busy families connected
  • 100 new and exciting question cards attached to round carabiner clip for use anywhere – at home, at a restaurant, in the car, on vacation
  • Questions that get the whole family talking – even hard-to-talk-to Teens!
  • Portable, thoughtprovoking, fun!
  • Great as a travel game

The other game we review is Lumps the Elf Coal Game. This game comes in a cute little stocking and is fun. Its a dice type of game that you are trying to get a set amount of points, sort of like a dice card game. The fun part was any amount of people can play. Our competitive nature made us want to each win for bragging rights! Next time we play we might put a candy reward up for the Elf that wins the most times in a row. That will really get the competition going! This game can be a choking hazard for kids under 3 so be sure to keep track of your lumps of coal.

The Lumps Legend:
Children around the world have been so good over the past few years; lumps of coal have built up at the North Pole. Puzzled by what to do with the excess coal; Santa’s elves decided to create an exciting new game that uses lumps of coal of all shapes and sizes

The goal is to score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. Roll a pair of 3s, score 3 points in a pair of 10s scores 10 points. What makes the game unique is that it has four different types of dice and there are few high numbers. On each turn you have to make decisions on which dice to keep and re-roll. Do you play it safe and hold a pair of 4s, or chance it and try for a high pair?
