Spontuneous Game Night


Our family and friends love to play board games.  It's a chance to laugh and make memories together. In these tech heavy times, it's a treat to unplug, disconnect, and reconnect face to face. 

Disclaimer: Thanks to Tryazon, we were given a "party pack" sample of Spontuneous for review purposes and 10 $5 discount coupons for our guests and our readers.

Looking for a fun, multigenerational game to play over the holidays and beyond? Check out Spontuneous. We had a blast playing, and it was fascinating how much difference there was between the lyrical knowledge of every generation.

We did have to modify the rules a bit for the snarky teens who didn't want to sing. We ended up allowing spoken lyrics. And the rules weren't entirely clear about whether players can race to blurt out the lyrics to the same song or if one player has the right to finish until stumped. We also had a few debates about what constituted lyrics. We decided to allow BULBOUS BOUFFANT - The Vestibules (ala Dr. Demento) even though the "lyrics" aren't sung and it's more of a sketch comedy piece. Your family and friends will have to be creative a bit on what you'll allow. 

We had all kinds of crazy, challenging lyrics come up, like cornbread, gymnastics, apple, Cadillac and Snapchat! 

Still, overall it was easy to learn, fun to play, and great for just about all ages. It's suggested for ages 8+, but younger players could team up or play with a bit of writing help. We like that 4-10 players can all join in and game play is fairly fast paced and averages a half an hour, if you don't have Monopoly marathon type time available. We recommend it. 

Spontuneous - Family Board Game is Available ONLY on Amazon. Click HERE to order (affiliate link). 

Have you ever heard a word that "triggered" you to sing a song? If so, then YOU are Spontuneous! One player says a word and the race is on for the others to sing a song containing that word. Don't worry though, talent is NOT required! 

Spontuneous is America's Hottest New Party Game! If you're looking for a hilarious game to entertain your family and friends, then it's time to throw a Spontuneous Party! It's fun, fast paced, full of laughs and a perfect game to spice up your next get-together!

The idea for Spontuneous®, the fun family board game where everyone participates by singing, was first conceived on August 2nd, 2009 by Rob Ridgeway of Billings, MT while hanging out with family. It all started after a spur of the moment singing outburst where everyone quickly agreed that they do the same thing with lyrics. Little did they know that they had just come up with the basis for what would become Spontuneous. 

After months of trials and testing the concept out with friends, owner Rob Ridgeway, finally decided to make the game into reality. After much research and a lot of hard work the first prototype was finished just before Christmas 2009. With help from a lot of different people along the way, Spontuneous finally burst onto the scene in 2010 where it was featured at the Toy Fair in New York City. After a few revisions, the Spontuneous that you play today was finally mastered. 

After winning the Game of the Year award from Creative Child Magazine, it is safe to say that Spontuneous has arrived and is here to stay! 

If you're a person who often bursts into a song upon hearing a word or phrase, you are going to love Spontuneous! This hilarious and interactive family party board game is a great gift for all music lovers of all ages. Spontuneous will have your whole group laughing as you compete against each other to quickly sing songs using trigger-words. Not only is it fun, but is good for your brain as it helps memory recall and word association skills. With several awards and a 4.5 out of 5 star ranking on Amazon, it's sure to become a favorite in many homes this season.

Angina Pectoris is a biting political satire from one of Israel’s hottest playwrights that posits the ridiculous. But the humorous situations uncover deeper issues about identity in Israel and today’s world pertaining to culture, religion, and politics in a broader and multicultural context.

“I love the way Aharoni shows life in Israel through humor, satire, and meaningful issues. Her writing is a thought-provoking introduction to the thorny issues of the conflict. Her extensive knowledge of Israeli political realm, combined with her writing skills and her fantastic sense of humor make us not just laugh - but also think.” - Ari Shavit, best-selling author of My Promised Land.

“A brilliant and sophisticated satire, comparable to the mythical 'Yes, Minister' that unveils the intricacies of Israel's politics.” - Ami Pedahzur, The Institute for Israeli Studies of the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies, University of Texas, Austin.

“I’ve known Michal Aharoni for many years and Angina Pectoris reveals not only intelligence, but it is humorous, unique, and creative.” Dr. Erel Margalit, Israel Minister of Knesset, Labor Party.

Aharoni is a playwright, newspaper columnist, and public-relations professional. Aharoni earned her theater degree from Hakibuzim Seminar in Tel Aviv, followed by a Master’s degree from Middlesex University in London. Over the past several years, she has worked as a spokeswoman for many Israeli politicians. Currently she writes for MAARIV online based in Washington, D.C. Her plays have been produced both in Israel and London. Angina Pectoris is her third full-length play. She is very excited to have ShPIeL produce her world premiere that is also being produced in a concurrent transcontinental world premiere in Israel at Tzavta Theatre in Tel Aviv, one of the leading cultural centers in Israel.

Chack, ShPIeL's producing artistic director, is a theatre producer, director, writer, curator and professor at The Theatre School at DePaul University. He is also president of the Association for Jewish Theatre and performance consultant to the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. Recent ShPIeL productions are Cities of Light and A Salon of Jewish-American Song; The Passions of Emma Goldman, The Invasion of Skokie and Conviction. He has also worked with Theater Wit, Victory Gardens Theatre, Silk Road Rising, Piven Theatre Workshop and Lookingglass Theatre.

ShPIeL – Performing Identity comes out of extensive research and work on identity and theater by Artistic Producing Director, David Y. Chack, showing how identity, heritage and culture create meaningful art and community engagement that transcends boundaries. Coming from Jewish roots, ShPIeL, over its four years of existence has produced the Chicago Stage 773 and Skokie productions of Cities of Light, The Passions of Emma Goldman, and The Invasion of Skokie at the Skokie JCC Theatre; as well as the Israeli play Conviction with Ami Dayan and Maya Productions at Theater Wit; Belgian theatre artist Noemi Schlosser in Date Me! and Sound of Silence with Salomeeshpilt Theatre at Theater Wit; and a ShPIeL Showcase at N’Namdi Gallery honoring Jewish work alongside Asian-American, African-American, feminist, and Chicago historical pieces.

ChiIL Mama's German and Spanish Brainstream BeepEgg Singing Breakfast Party With Ines Rosales' Tortas

Our family loves hard and soft boiled eggs, but it's hard to get the timing right. Now anyone can make a perfect egg with Brainstream and the singing BeepEgg!

Disclosure: Thanks to Tryazon, Brainstream and Ines Rosales tortas, we got to eat Spanish tortas, try this creative German egg timer out, give a couple away, and have a rockin' multi-culti breakfast party last weekend! They provided us with samples for our giveaway and for review purposes.

Here are our two BeepEgg winners -- Beth & Peggy!

I'm half German and we're renowned for our engineering and inventive problem solving. So, I can appreciate the background on this ingenious egg. Dr. Rupprecht Gabriel, a German engineer and entrepreneur, was always annoyed by his poorly boiled breakfast eggs. They were either too runny or too hard. In 2000, he decided to solve the problem and the BeepEgg was born-an egg shaped timer that could sing and float. Shortly thereafter Gabriel formed a creative team and Brainstream became an enterprise. Brainstream strives to impress their customers with their “fun and functional” products. Their line of products include BeepEgg, Cregg, SOI-the automatic handbag light, and more. 

The BeepEgg- looks like an egg, feels like an egg, boils like an egg, but unlike an egg it sings. BeepEgg is a precise egg-timer, which is boiled together with real eggs. The BeepEgg and real eggs have to enter water at the same time. Once yolk and egg-white have reached the desired degree of hardness, BeepEgg will play a tune. 

Watch a video here to see how it works:

To make our breakfast party even more multi-culti, we also got to sample 2 flavors of Ines Rosales' Spanish-tortas, sweet olive oil & savory olive oil. 

Ines Rosales is a company that originates from Seville, Spain and is the manufacturer of famous original Spanish-tortas. These tortas are flat circular scone-like biscuits, about 5" in diameter, that are made with natural ingredients like wheat flour, sugar, spices and superior quality extra virgin olive oil. It’s a perfect mix of salty and sweet following the exact same recipes as it's founder, Doña Inés Rosales Cabello, came up with back in 1910. 

Ines Rosales torta flavors include: Sweet Olive, Cinnamon, Seville Orange, Rosemary & Thyme, and Sesame & Sea Salt.  Other Ines Rosales Products include Citrus Crumble Cake and Cinnamon Cookie. Click here for more information about Ines Rosales.

BeepEgg From Brainstream is Beepin' Brilliant

This singing and floating-egg timer will ensure that your eggs are boiled to perfection every time. Designed to work at all altitudes and under all conditions, this innovative device constantly monitors the outer temperature to calculate the core temperature of the egg. The beeps let you know what your eggs are doing in all that water. The 1st beep is triggered when the water temperature reaches 113 degrees Fahrenheit and is simply letting you know the BeepEgg is working. The 2nd beep means the water has started to boil. 

The three tunes correspond to the hardness of the eggs being boiled. The first tune, ""Oh Susanna,"" indicates that the egg is soft-boiled (eggwhite soft and the yolk runny); the second tune, ""Take me out to the Ballgame,"" indicates that the egg is medium-soft boiled (the eggwhite is hard and the yolk is still slightly runny), while the third tune, ""Hail, Hail the Gang's all Here,"" indicates that the eggs are hard-boiled (the yolk is hard, but not discolored from overcooking). 

For best care and results, always store BeepEgg with real eggs as this prolongs the battery life and the BeepEgg works on a thermal model which functions best when it starts off at the same temperature as the real eggs. The BeepEgg is optimized for medium to large eggs; add approximately 30 seconds when cooking extra-large eggs. Never use BeepEgg in a microwave or in a sauce pan without water. The BeepEgg is made in Germany and comes with a 2-year warranty.

Currently on sale for $19.99 (save $4.00)

LAST CALL: Adventure Stage Chicago’s “New Kid” at Vittum Through This Weekend Only

Chi, IL LIVE Shows On Our Radar:
(Family Friendly)

Adventure Stage Chicago’s “New Kid” 
Explores Immigration and Related Issues 
During Runs at Vittum and North Park Theaters 

Adventure Stage Chicago Collaborates with North Park University for its Fall Production (limited run)

While politicians argue, banter and opine about immigration, Adventure Stage Chicago (ASC) tackles the issue from a child’s perspective in its newest production. Presented in collaboration with North Park University Department of Theatre and Performance Studies, ASC, a program of Northwestern University Settlement House, is pleased to present New Kid, written by Dennis Foon. The program runs October 29 – 31 at North Park University Theatre, 3225 W. Foster Ave. and November 7, 14, 20 and 21 at Vittum Theater, 1012 N. Noble Street, Chicago. 

New Kid follows sixth-grader Nick and his family as they depart their Homeland for a new future in America, battling bullies, making friends and learning a strange new language. While trying to fit in, Nick and his family also don’t want to lose their own values and culture. 

“If you look at what’s going on in the world, immigration stories are more important than ever. Whether it’s the current crisis making news in Europe or the ongoing debate about our own border with Mexico. And young people are paying attention to this stuff. In fact, some of the students in our audience are directly affected by these events,” says Tom Arvetis, producing artistic director. “They’re just like Nick.” 

Per the script, Nick speaks English, while those in his new home in America speak “gibberish.” This allows the audience to fully experience the difficulties and frustrations trying to function in a world where you can’t converse or understand conversations and others can’t understand you. Nick and his new classmates eventually discover that friendship speaks every language. All shows are presented with Spanish subtitles. 

“With New Kid, we’re exploring the immigrant experience from the inside out. It’s a play that will give the audience a different perspective on what it means to leave the familiar and make a life in a new place. We’ve all been new to something at some point in our lives. New Kid offers an important reminder that, no matter where you come from, friendship and tolerance are vital to feeling like you belong,” adds Arvetis. 

Each performance is framed by Curtain Conversations, pre- and post-show discussions with the audience members moderated by ASC that encourage interaction between the audience and curiosity and reflection long after leaving the theater. 

This production is a collaboration between ASC and North Park University Department of Theatre and Performance Studies. This is the company’s first collaboration of this sort, and is being spearheaded by Brandon Wardell (scenic design) and Jessica Kuehnau Wardell (costume design), who are ASC ensemble members as well as professors at North Park. 

“Adventure Stage Chicago is thrilled to be partnering with North Park University on this production. For the first time, we’ll be bringing together professional and university student actors and designers to collaborate on an important story for Chicago’s youth,” says Chad Eric Bergman, professor and department chair. “NPU has a long tradition of teaching the values of service through education and ASC, as a program of the Northwestern Settlement, creates and tells heroic stories intended to nurture, educate and inspire our neighbors to overcome obstacles in their lives. It feels good to be offering a meaningful artistic experience to NPU students that synthesizes artistic practice with social service. 

New Kid Dates, Times and Ticket Information: 

North Park Theatre show dates: Oct. 29 and 30 at 8 p.m.; Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. and Oct. 31 at 2 p.m.

North Park Theatre aims to: ask good questions and seek answers through dialogue; look beyond our experiences to understand our own; encourage students to act truthfully with each performance, and recognize the responsibility and power of live theatre.

PARENTS' NIGHT OUT: E.D.G.E Theatre is pleased to announce the world premiere of Holmes vs Holmes



The World’s Greatest Detective Comes Face-To-Face with America’s First Serial Killer at Chicago’s Columbian Exposition

E.D.G.E Theatre is pleased to announce the world premiere of Holmes vs Holmes, conceived by Orion Couling and Angela Davis Couling, written by Bill Daniel and directed by Orion Couling, November 5 - 29 at Heartland Studio Theatre, 7016 N Glenwood. 

The performance schedule is Thursdays - Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are $22. Tickets may be purchased at
It is 1893 and all of the world waits and watches in anticipation as Chicago opens the gates to its great World’s Fair, the Columbia Exposition. For a city that has literally risen from the ashes, it is an achievement that is at once magnificent and unparalleled. However, a darkness has begun to stir and prowl through the streets of the beautiful White City, consuming innocence and anything that stands in its way.

Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, England continues to mourn the loss of the great detective, Sherlock Holmes, after his supposed death over the falls of Reinchenbach. But not everything is as it seems and very soon the famous detective will find himself being swept up in the midst of a case unlike any he has known before.

The cast of Holmes vs Holmes includes Alexandra Boroff (Elizabeth Holton,) Alexandra Cross (Julia Smythe-Connor,) Bill Daniel (H.H. Holmes,) Richard Eisloeffel (Ned Connor/Marion Hedgepeth/George Bowman/Professor Moriarty,)
Sarah Franzel (Emeline Cigrand,) Erin Gordon (Minnie Williams,) Allison Reinke (Anna Williams,) T Issac Sherman (Sherlock Holmes,) RoK Teasley, (Pitezel/Jonathan Belknap,) Lucas Thatcher (Detective Frank Geyer,) Lisa Tosti (Myrta Belknap) and Sarah Wisterman, (Clara Loverling).
The Holmes vs Holmes production team includes Angela Davis Couling, assistant director; Becca Goldberg, stage manager; Emma Cullimore, costumes; Peter McManus, set designer and Benjamin Dionysis, lighting designer.


E.D.G.E.’s anachronism stands for “Esteem Development through Greater Expectations”. Using the theatre arts, they educate and entertain to foster the tools of social change. E.D.G.E has a goal of finding every participant’s personal best and holding them accountable to it. E.D.G.E. main thrust is developing theatre for marginalized communities and to bring a message of non-violence, civic and social change through exploration of the theatre arts. E.D.G.E.’s four sectors are: E.D.G.E Core, company produced classes offered on a select curriculum in theatre, social skills, history and stage combat; E.D.G.E. Satellite, E.D.G.E programs produced, collaborated or sub contracted by an outside produced program; E.D.G.E Troupe, a professional actor program providing a training ground for interns from our marginalized community to observe the highest standards of professionalism and be part of the process and E.D.G.E Workshops, limited time commitment programs are meant to harness their educational and entertainment abilities in a workshop environment. These programs are targeted for school assemblies, conventions, and camps.
