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!

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.
