Some of my happiest childhood memories revolve around playing board games with my friends and family. All the way through high school, we spent most Friday nights, at a family friends game night. Now that my son is four he is able to play some games all the way to the end, follow directions, and even sometimes win (without help from me). This past summer he was so excited when he beat his mema at Candy Land for the first time. He then insisted on playing it over-and-over again.
Knowing board games hold fond memories for people of all ages, Gamesformotion (known for their tailor-made games) has now released some classic childhood board games made out of chocolate. Yes, you read that right, chocolate. Totally any kids childhood dream come true. Games within the release include Scrabble and Battleship for adults to Candy Land, Guess Who?, and Monopoly for the family.
We cracked open the Candy Land chocolate game tonight and my son was over the moon excited when I told him the pieces were edible. Even the baby knew something was different because of the lovely sweet chocolate smell coming from the pieces.
All of the chocolate games have the same essential features as their famous counterparts, except that their cards and letter tiles have been replaced with the finest Belgian milk chocolate encased within printed wrappers. Rules for all of the games have been slightly modified by Gamesformotion to ensure they’re always fun and easy to play. Now the best part about winning the game is my son got to sample his winnings.
Their classic chocolate game selections are currently being distributed throughout the US and are hitting the stores just in time for the holiday seasons. All games will be available for purchase beginning November 2014 at mass retail stores such as Target, CVS, Kmart, Amazon.com, Bed Bath & Beyond and select smaller distributors with retail prices starting at only $9.99.
I was provided with samples from Gamesformotion for review purposes, as always all opinions expressed here are my own.
