Out of the Box and Gobs of Giveaways Giveaway

BSB Day 3 – Out of the Box – Review & Giveaway

Ever since I can remember my family has played games, from cards to board games to outdoor yard games. This is something that we have passed onto M and B as well, but sometimes it’s nice to have our own friends over for a little competitive game. Thanks to Out of the Box, our family if the proud owner of Backseat Drawing for Adults.

We invited 3 couples and their children over for a BBQ and some plain old family fun, little did we know that the adults would have way more fun than the kids:) After eating it was game time. The children all ran outside to play on the swing set, in the sand box or jumped on the trampoline, while all the parents stayed inside.

I made sure that all 3 couples invited knew we would be playing Backseat Drawing for this review, so everyone was eager to get started. The game started off kind of slow just because no one knew what to do, but soon the laughter began! This game was delightful and amusing amongst the closest of friends–maybe that’s why we had so much fun because we are so close that no one was trying to “show off” their drawing abilities! At one point, my friends little guy comes in and wants to know what all the screaming is about–she just tells him “it’s an adult thing:)”

The one thing I liked the most was that the cards never, ever repeated itself during the game and I am sure that the next time we play, they won’t as well since there are over 330 challenge cards! I also liked that the board you draw on it a dry eraser one, instead of paper–just another thing to look after Mother Nature.

Thanks Out of the Box for a wonderful game that will bring many hoots and hollers to our table!
