True stories with a twist!

Do you like to play games? No, I don’t mean the dating kind of “Games People Play,“ but regular, score keeping board games. Family games. Friends over, let’s-play type of games.

How about a game that won the 2012 Award for the best Game Of the Year by Creative Child Magazine? You’re cool; you’re current; you want to play the new game in town.

A game that causes writers like you and me to search for new words. A game that helps boomers exercise their brains. A game that children enjoy playing, with their friends, siblings, or a generation or two beyond their age groups.

I discovered such a game last night at dinner with my brother, Jerry (of the African name  story two blogs ago.)

It’s called KerFlip. It’s a word game, it’s fun for children and adults, and has a leg up on other word games. I am always looking for something different to bring when I :

*go to a friend’s house for dinner

* visit my children

* Bring a gift to an ailing friend

*A ‘Thank you” gift

* have a small surprise for no special reason at all.

Check out the website, See what the game looks like, meet the inventor, and watch a demonstration to see how the game is played. You can buy a game at

  1. Looks great, Ronnie. I like the clean-up feature, too. That’s the worst part of some games — having to pick up a hundred little pieces, and struggling to get everything to fit back in the box.

  2. I must be getting Old… as I havent heard of this board game.. . Lol…. But it sounds fun..

  3. I love board games and such 🙂

  4. Looks like so much fun! Never heard of it before. Definitely looking it up for this summer 🙂 Thanks Ronnie

  5. Ronnie! This sounds like my kind of game. Thanks for the heads up! I’m going over to check it out right now! 😀

  6. Annnnnd I’m officially addicted. I needed another reason NOT to clean my house or cook dinner 🙂 Good looking out!

  7. OMG. You nailed it for me. I’m a total word game person, and though I do prefer playing with other humans in person, it’s hard where we live. And so I play Words With Friends online, which keeps me in touch with family and friends I’m not physically close to. We comment back and forth while playing as well.

    But my favorite board games when my daughter and friends are here are Taboo and Cranium. Too fun! 😀

    Tried the game. It also has a verbal component and the tiles have different values on either side.
    Cool game


  9. I love word games! I’ll have to check it out–thx Ronnie!

  10. Thanks for the info, Ronnie, I’m a word games addict! 🙂

  11. Hi,
    Sounds like a great game for the family or friends to play. I think it’s great that they are still coming up with new games. 😀
