Quantcast

Ah, THE GAME OF LIFE. As a kid in the 1980s, I remember playing the classic version of the game, building my "family" with those little pegs that represented people, and dreaming of what exactly I might be when I grew up. Well, I never necessarily "grew up," but I did become a "grownup," and since I now have real kids that aren't little plastic pegs, I have this site... so you could say that I've won at THE GAME OF LIFE. I also get some cool opportunities, and one of those is getting together with my friends at Hasbro to get one of YOU set-up with THE GAME OF LIFE to play with your family. Ready for a chance?

Review: The FUNNY OR DIE Game (Hasbro)

Recommended for ages 13+, the FUNNY OR DIE game from Hasbro comes with a stern warning that it includes "images of extreme stunts that should not be recreated, mild nudity, and other content that might be offensive to some players." So, I did what any good "Rock Father" should, and proceeded to play it with a four-year-old... albeit in a slightly amended form. That's in addition to a few New Years rounds played "grownup-style," so I can give you a first-hand account of how it's meant to be played.

Giveaway: The FUNNY OR DIE Game from Hasbro

It's a New Year, and that means it's time for some new giveaways here on The Rock Father - chances to score cool prizes for the whole family. This one is recommended for Ages 13+, the new FUNNY OR DIE Game from Hasbro. The folks from Hasbro Gaming have teamed up with me to get one lucky reader hooked up with a copy to play with their family, and since the game is based on captions... you're gonna have to caption one of my photos to enter!

With only four more days to order 'till Christmas (as of this writing), a lot of folks are still seeking those last-minute gift ideas, and one sure-fire hit is some classic board games from my friends at Winning Moves Games. Having already enjoyed their reproduction of the classic Ouija Board through the Halloween Season, this winter we've been spending time with Classic Yahtzee, Classic "Popomatic" Trouble, and Classic Sorry! Officially licensed by Hasbro, these games are quality versions of the now-retro originals that many folks had as kids. In fact, the Yahtzee and Trouble are the exact versions that I had as a kid in the 1980s. The big hit here at Rock Father HQ? Oh yes, it's Trouble...

The Classic Ouija Board. It doesn't matter if you think of it as "Wee-Ja" or "Wee-Gee" (I prefer the latter), the classic board game is capable of conjuring some pretty strong feelings and emotions... depending on who you talk to. While versions of the William Fuld-stamped board have been around for over a century, it's the CLASSIC OUIJA Board that is most-often thought of, though many don't realize that it hasn't exactly been easy to come by in recent years. For Day 24 of 31 Days of Halloween here on The Rock Father, I'm featuring the Classic Ouija Board - brought back to life by Winning Moves Games under license from Hasbro. Yes, the true classic based on the famous Parker Brothers board is available once more, and they sent one to Rock Father HQ for some spooky fun...
