Funnybone Toys – card Games, toys, and gifts for lovers of Good Design. Funnybone Toys was created as a specialty in the toy and game market: a true combination of form, function, and beautiful minimalist design. The launch of Funnybone Toys, based in Denver, CO, set out to create a US-based company that could mesh these elements together. “Funnybone Toys is a company that makes games to stimulate fun and creativity,” says President Julien Sharp. “We designed the games so that no matter the age, people can enjoy.”
Recently, I have put in effort to get off the computer, iPad and phone and get outside. Doing fun things with friends is easy but getting off your device is hard! We are all addicted to FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) and constantly checking email, Instagram and Twitter. To break this habit and pick up a new healthy one – I introduce to you Funny Bone Toys! There are a variety of good old fashion games with a new modern design perfect for at the park, someones house or by the pool even. Playing games require REAL interaction, conversation, eye contact, jokes, competition, team work and a sense of play. All factors of a good relationship. Your friend will appreciate spending REAL time with you. Get OFFLINE and play a game! These are my recommendations below.
Disruptus™ – which asks players to look at objects and ideas and use different approaches — as determined by the roll of a die — to innovate. Disruptus draws inspiration from the very important practice of ‘disruptive thinking’. Disruptive thinking is one of the most powerful ways to innovate. It has been used to create ideas and objects like digital music, camera phones, and car sharing programs. Not only being used in corporations to help employees and teams be more innovative, it’s also beloved by families and has won the Party Game of the Year 2013 by Creative Child Magazine and a Laugh Out Loud Award by Tillywig Toy Reviews.

A month ago, I downloaded this game to see what I knew about Pop Culture. We had a bunch of friends over and over merlot and snacks, seeing how many characters you know is a great time. Characters from retro cartoons and symbols from current shows like Revenge.
The premise of this game is that they give you an illustration that gives you a partial clue. You can also buy hints with your points. It can be a sentence that’s a hint or it can be a few letters towards the final answer. You will have leeway even you get one letter wrong in the spelling but it’s the correct answer.
I really loves this for the holidays. If you play this on your iPad it is sure to be a full family affair of fun!

Letterpress is a relatively new game that I found that I actually bought. I love the themes, colors and simplicity of this game. It helps if you have a good vocab and a love for word games. I play with with Fatema all the time and I like to start multiple games and play about 8 games at the same time.
It is really fun and challenges you to expand your mind and use more letters per word to get more points. The premise of this game is to create words. If you use the letters that the other player has used you convert the tiles to your color and get more points.

I am sooooo addicted to this game. I play it everyday on my way to work and it makes my 40 min commute a breeze. The best part is when the real subway jerks and jolts and you feel like you are really in the game. I also love this game because Jake is so cute and I totally dig his skateboard.
The premise of this game is that Jake is spray painting graffiti onto subway trains and the guard sees him, blows the whistle and starts chasing him with a dog. By the way, the dog looks just like Jacob. I love him.
There are daily challenges, coin collecting magnet, super sneakers, hover board and even a super head start jet pack. Even though there are tons of characters you can download, my favorite is still Jake. Great idea for a Halloween costume next year maybe!

I often browse the App store to see what is new and trending. I just found this game on the Top 30 list and had to download it. I have never liked going to the dentist and find most dental things gross. Who knew that scaling plaque or brushing someone’s teeth, adding fluoride to specific spots can actually be fun!
First you have to look at the patient chart and see what they prefer, Novocaine or laughing gas – add the correct amounts and do all the dental procedures before the pain killers wear off. If you don’t file a tooth properly, it will crack and you will have to seal it. If that doesn’t work our you have to hammer in a fake tooth.
Pretty fun and kind of addictive :]

Wiggity Bang Games is introducing their latest addition to their collection of award winning games, called FURT. As wacky as its name suggests, FURT is the hilariously quirky party game perfect for any light-hearted get together with family and friends.
FURT is a befuzzling eruption of laughter in a box. It is a party game that defies logic and a reasonable explanation. You have to play to understand and when you do, you’ll laugh until your sides ache.
In this game players race to be the first INTO the mouth of a fiery volcano by completing actions from the six wacky-packed FURT categories. You might be making up outrageous lies about yourself. Freshening up with a quick shower in your host’s bathroom. Or acting out the words ‘butter patty.’
Perfect for: game nights, girls’ nights, family get-togethers, road trips to Vegas, frozen winter evenings in the winter, lazy days by the poolside, high school detention, prison riots, peace treaty talks, jury duty and any other gathering that could use a good laugh.
What We Thought: This game is amazing! It didn’t take long to turn a dull Tuesday night in into a fun-filled evening with family. This game really pushes the envelope on party games and introduces a genre of laughter that’s silly and incomparable. It kept us laughing all night long, and talking about it the next day! I can’t wait to introduce it all my friends and bring it out during our next get together. Games like this really bring people together, free of devices — just good old-fashioned quality time. Perfect for the holidays spent with family and friends, this game would be a great Christmas gift addition to New Years’ tradition! Lets make memories 🙂
