Fun Family Games with Yulu #Giveaway

Yulu Games

Is it just me or is the “family gaming” aisle in toy stores extremely overwhelming?! Jam packed with hundreds of different games, I literally pace back and forth looking at all the titles and then most the time I walk away empty handed and frustrated because I just can’t seem make a decision.

At one point I brought my 6 year old to the store to have him pick a game (I thought maybe it would be easier for him to choose) … BIG MISTAKE! He picked out a game he saw on one of the YouTube channels and after I couldn’t get it to work, I instantly regretted my decision (and the money I spent on it). You live and learn!

If you are like me and are overwhelmed in that aisle and just looking for a recommendation for some rainy day games, after-camp games, quiet time games or witching hour games, I have two fun one’s that my kids had a blast playing!

Safe Breaker
Safe Breaker Game
Object of the Game:  to break open the safe by cracking the code and breaking into the safe to collect the coins. Win by being the first to collect 5 coins or 3 diamond coins but make sure you don’t get caught by the police. 

How to Playlay out all the cards with the numbers facing up. Have one person pick the first card, turn the dial to the chosen number, next use the fingerprint scanner to test the number and if the light shows green the safe door will open and if the light shows red listen through the spy listening gear to hear a secret clue as to whether the code is higher or lower than the number chosen (there are sounds which prompt you). When you crack the code, the safe door will open and coins will spit out. Don’t be fooled though, sometimes you could break open the safe and there are no coins inside or you could get the alarm coin and you have to give back all your coins! Keep playing until 5 coins or 3 diamond coins have been collected. Careful though, if you hear a siren that means the police have been alerted and you lose a turn. 

Where to Buy: Toys R Us and Mastermind in Canada, Target and Walmart in the USA
Price: $30.00 CAD

Break Free

Object of the Game: be the first to pick the lock on your hand cuffs and break free of them!

How to Play: there are three maze levels to choose from (easy, intermediate and challenging). Put the chosen maze into the handcuff, attach the handcuff to all players wrist. Using the lock pick, players must try to get through the hidden maze by moving the lock left, right, up and down to release the handcuff and escape as quickly as possible. The winner gets a coloured token to match the colour maze they chose. There are points on the back of each token and the player with the most points at the end of the three rounds wins!
