Raincoast Books – #PlayTestShare: Family Night! - Giveaway! Canada Only

I think all families with kids have a night set for family night. You play games, do puzzles or crafts or something else. I know kids love games and books so here is a chance to win some of those for your children.
We have 10 blogs participating in this giveaway of games and books that Raincoast is hosting for us again.
For this giveaway, I was able to choose two books or games. I chose Punch Out & Play Game Book which the grandchildren had a lot of fun with.
One book, so many ways to play! Acclaimed artist and designer Laura Ljungkvist invites children to punch out 10 different puzzles and 13 classic games, such as Memory, Go Fish, and Dominoes. Packed with fun, graphic artwork, a variety of games, and plenty of colorful envelopes for easy storage, this book provides hours of play for kids of all ages-all in an attractively priced package.

Sorry about that table cloth. I was at my daughter in law's and never thought to move it. The game the kids are playing is a memory game and Aiden was the winner.

The second book I chose was for adults, the Fantastic Collections
A Coloring Book of Amazing Things Real and Imagined illustrated by Steve McDonald.
In this newest coloring book by the author of the internationally bestselling Fantastic Cities (more than 400,000 copies in print),artist Steve McDonald uses his unique photo-based approach to create beautiful and intimately detailed line drawings of amazing collections of objects. Finding inspiration in the unusual (museum collections, antiques, and quirky toys) and the everyday (leaves, butterflies, vintage cameras, store product displays), McDonald creates playful and immersive illustrations that are as lovely as they are fun to color. The quality of the large, crisp white pagesare conducive to a range of applications, while a middle margin keeps all the artwork fully colorable. A dozen meditative mandalas created from the drawings round out this gorgeous adult coloring book.

Listography: The Game This book is the other one for adults.
May the Best List Win!
by Lisa Nola and Forrest-Pruzan Creative
A new twist on the bestselling Listography journal series (almost 900,000 titles sold), this game invites players to create and share lists based on fun and thought-provoking topics-from geography and pop culture to toothpaste and constellations! With the goal of being the first around the game board, players score points according to the number of similar or unique answers. Every round in the game results in creative thinking, surprise outcomes, and lots of laughs.
