Live Battleship {Giveaway is over}

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Game night. As a child did your family do game night once a week? Fast forward 20 years and where has game night gone? Kids are glued to the TV or computer...no wait maybe their cell phones with all the texting that goes on now.  Are families becoming more and more disconnected with each other?
How about bringing Family Game Night back? Turn the cell phones off and turn the TV's off. Sit together as a family and play a game. Lets bring it back old school!

Recently in Toronto a wicked media event took place in light of the new Battleship Live. Real Marines were there!  Attendee's went one on one with the Marines to sink their Battleship.
Here's a little trivia. Did you know that it was a guessing game played by two people. It is known throughout the world as a pencil and paper game which predates World War I.  In the 60's there was some controversy about the packaging depicting it being sexist as a mom and daughter were doing dishes and father and son we playing Battleship.  Looking at the boxes now...well there's no sign of that in 2011!


A real Battleship
What's so different with the Battleship we grew up with?  How about a Talking Tower. You can release air strikes and launch missile attacks with the swipe of a hand. Typhoons can take place, this is a seriously cool game.
Watch the commercial {Here}

It's a great idea to bring Family Game Night back. We really enjoy playing games together. When I was a kid, we played Clue and Monopoly a lot.

Monopoly (original) has always been a favourite. Yahtzee was fun and who can forget Guess Who. In our house they are still played to this day, although my husband is a bad sport when it comes to Monopoly (he loses a lot, hahaha)

Would love to bring back game night. My kids feel too old now, but it does still happen when we go to the cottage.

My favorite game as a child was playing trouble.

I remember staying up late as a kid playing Risk with my dad. We'd also form up teams (one adult and one kid apiece) to play Trivial Pursuit. We had so much fun!
