#PlayTestShare with Raincoast Books

Well the holidays are creeping up on us quickly and I have already been putting things away for the grandchildren for Christmas. Its never too early to start. Have you started your shopping yet? If not, then you just may want to have a look at this and you just might see something you would love to win. With that said, are you ready to play?

Its #PlayTestShare time again from http://www.raincoast.com/
and we have some really awesome ideas for you. I chose the Donner Dinner Party for my grandson. It is a rowdy game of frontier Cannibalism!

Who's safe when there are cannibals hiding among you? That's the question at the heart of this fast-paced game of social deduction in which cannibals and pioneers face off in a fight for survival. Set in the winter of 1846, players are members of the ill-fated Donner Party wagon train, stranded atop a mountain with no food. Who will avoid becoming tonight's dinner and make it off the mountain alive? And who are the suspicious scoundrels hungry for human flesh? Rowdy, outrageous, and full of playful deception, this party game packs a delightfully wicked twist!

The other game I chose was the Ghost Story Box because I think my grandaughter will love this one.
You create your own spooky tales by Magma, Illustrated by Ella Bailey.


Create your own spooky tales, based on a unique and original format, this game contains 20 story-telling puzzle pieces printed on both sides. Each piece can be interchanged or flipped over to allow for all kinds of plot twists and turns, and there re even two alternatie endings! When all the puzzle pieces are used, they stretch out to over 8 feet long to tell your own mega ghost story!

Can you help a friendly family of ghosts save their house? Can you evade the ghost catcher at the funfair and release all the captured at the funfair and release all the captured ghosts... or do the cards hold another tale? Tell a different story each time you play!

Here are all the games for you to choose from.
