Lumps and Family Talk 2 Review and Giveaway *Closed*

Forget carols, eggnog, dinner parties and cookie exchanges, when it comes to holiday entertaining the biggest trend this year is playing dice – elf style with lumps of coal. Not only will you be able to avoid taboo conversations about religion, politics and money with the family, you will all be able to bond over Lumps, a fast-paced dice game that challenges players to make risky decisions with every roll.


To play Lumps, you gather the pieces of coal (dice) in your hands, give them a lucky shake and let them fly. The goal is to score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs. What makes Lumps exciting is that there are four different types of dice and only a few of them have high numbers on them. After your first roll, you have to decide which dice to keep and which dice to roll again.
But, if you do need help starting a friendly dinnertime conversation you can use the game Family Talk 2. A portable deck of cards with questions like, “What was life like when you were a kid, mom, dad?”, Family Talk 2 inspires meaningful conversations that allow families to reconnect over the holidays.

Brayden loves to play games when Trevor is napping so when I was asked to review both Lumps and Family Talk 2 I, of course, said yes. Lumps is a great game to help kids learn numbers and well as which numbers have a greater value since the goal of the game is to score the most points. Family Talk 2 is a great game to play during holiday parties or while sitting at the dinner table on a Friday night.

Lumps, the Elf Coal game is available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores, Books-A-Million, Go! Games and 100s of specialty toy stores in the US and Family Talk 2 is available at www.continuumgames.com. Both games are the perfect size for stocking stuffers!
