Holiday Gift Guide: Grandpa Beck’s Card Games And A Giveaway

1StopMom Holiday Gift Guide

Sample provided for review purposes. Opinions are 100% my own. This post contains affiliate links

My family went to the Chicago Toy Fair about a week ago to check out some of the latest games and toys for this holiday season. As I have mentioned before we play a lot of games and are always looking for new ones to add to our collection. My daughter and I were checking out Grandpa Beck’s Games and had the pleasure of meeting the inventor, Brent Back and his lovely wife. He is the Grandpa behind the games.

Brent and his wife were very nice and we enjoyed talking to him about his games. I thought it was pretty cool to meet someone who saw a need for game that he wanted to play with his family so he invented it. Actually he invented four:

cover your assets game

The goal of Cover Your Assets® is to be the first player to achieve a total of at least ONE MILLION DOLLARS in assets! Players stack matching pairs of assets to create their own asset stockpiles. Strategy comes in when players attempt to capture the top set of assets of other players.

Use multiple strategies to lower your score each turn. Just like golf, the lowest score wins!

skull king game

With a “Yo Ho Ho,” players simultaneously bid how many tricks they will win. Scheme to make sure you win exactly how many you bid.

nuts about mutts game

A fast paced hand-elimination game with many unique twists.  The pile in the center of the table is your dogs’ home! You can play a dog card if it matches the color, number or breed of the top card.

My family had a chance to play both Nuts about Mutts and Cover Your Assets. Our family has six members so I like that we are all able to play together. The instructions for both games are very easy to understand.

We really enjoyed playing Nuts About Mutts. My kids are older so we played the advanced way and kept score. I kept forgetting to yell match when we first started playing, but I caught on with no problems. The game can go pretty quick and we had a good time.

Cover Your Assets is for 4 to 6 players. You have to play rounds in order to try to get to one million dollars so we were playing this game longer than Nuts About Mutts. We played for over an hour. I have no complaints though because the game is fun. You need to be strategic and can go from being on top to having all you assets stolen without warning.

These games would be great additions to family game night, especially during the holidays when family is visiting. I want to try Golf and Skull King next.

You can buy any of Grandpa Beck’s Games on Amazon for $12.99 .

Holiday Gift Guide: Ovation Brands Gift Card And A Giveaway!

1StopMom Holiday Gift Guide

When my family goes out to dinner, most times we can agree on where to eat. But there are times when everyone wants something different. Those are the times when we like to eat buffet style.

Ovation Brands has buffet locations across the nation. We have Old Country Buffet and HomeTown Buffet here in Wisconsin. My family has enjoyed eating at Old Country Buffet for years. No matter what meal we are eating, everyone is able to find something they like.

Simple Swaps for Calorie Savings This Holiday Season With NAKANO + A Giveaway!

Product was provided for review purposes. Opinions are 100% my own.
The Holidays mean spending time with loved ones and eating delicious food. I know there will be a lot of eating at all the get-togethers and parties and like the idea of saving calories where ever I can.

NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegars offer a solution simple ways to swap out high calorie condiments and not lose any flavor. Just calories and fat!

sinless swaps with nakano

I was sent five bottles of different NAKANO  Rice Vinegars that I was eager to try out. The difference in grams of fat and calories between the different condiments and rice is huge.

I was a little worried about using too much rice vinegar because I thought the bottle had an regular bottle opening.  I was happy when I opened the bottle and found out I was wrong.

nakano seasoned rice vinegar bottle

This opening made it easier to just splash some rice vinegar on my dish instead of just pouring it out.  I thought I would have to buy some special bottles to use the rice vinegar, I am glad there is no need for that.

nakano basil and oregano seasoned rice vinegarSo far I have tried the Basil & Oregano Seasoned Rice Vinegar on some sliced tomatoes. I like the way it tastes. I did not even add salt like I usually do.  I plan to use it on homemade subs too. Normally I use an oil and vinegar mixture but NAKANO  Seasoned Rice Vinegar has more flavor.

My daughter Kayla likes to eat Tofu. Our plan is to marinate some chopped Tofu in the Mango Seasoned Rice Vinegar and then bake it. I will let you know how that turns out.

I like the variety of flavor that NAKANO offers with its seasoned rice vinegar. I can’t wait to try them in different ways.

NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegars are:

  • Low Calorie
  • No Fat
  • Gluten Free
  • No preservatives
  • 50% less sodium than the competition

NAKANO has lots of recipes that use the various seasoned rice vinegars. I am looking forward to trying the Chili-Garlic Potato Wedges.
