While I was home for Thanksgiving the family played a bunch of games – a great holiday tradition. Two of the games were new to me and I loved them and thought they would make gifts for others. So here they are for you to consider for the game lover on your list.


About Bananagrams:

“Fast and frantic, players race against each other to build crossword grids. And it requires no pencil, paper, or board. In this addictive word game, speed wins, not points. You’ll have a bunch of fun as you race to the finish by using all of your letter tiles first! The tiles come in a small portable banana-shaped pouch and is perfect for everyone, at home or on the go.”

About CodeNames:

“CodeNames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table. Their teammates try to guess words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help.”

CodeNames is available from Amazon and other fine retailers.

There are many mini trees and tree-like decorations you can use in your holiday decorating, but I challenge you to find one more elegant than the Pinecone Topiary I found from the fine folks at Enchanted Home.
