GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Grow Your Brains With Gigamic Games Like Quoridor and Panic Lab

Happy 20th Anniversary Quoridor

We are huge fans of brain games here at ChiIL Mama. My kids have grown up playing puzzle games, memory games, board games, card games and brain games from toddlerhood on. So, when Gigamic games reached out to us to partner up on a review and giveaway, we jumped at the chance.

I fully believe playing smart games has increased my kids' brain power. Now that my kids are 13 & 15, they're both in advanced honors tracks in two of the best public schools in the city of Chicago, if not the country. My 15 year old son, Dugan, is the VP of a card game club at Lane Tech, and taking 3 college level AP classes and the rest senior level course work. He's also a great game tester for me, along with his sister, Sage, who is an 8th grader in the IB honors program at Taft high school's academic center.

Now that my kids are teens, family play is even more fun, and we're all pretty evenly matched. Want to add Quoridor to your family's game collection?

ENTER HERE for your chance to win a 
gorgeous wooden Quoridor set ($34.95 value) from Gigamic & ChiIL Mama just in time for the holidays!

Open to US entries nationwide. Enter through midnight 11/24/16.

We were given Quoridor and Panic Lab to review. Both were huge hits with the family. Quoridor is a gorgeous wooden set, classy and classic enough to leave out as decor, on our gaming trunk. Games are meant to be seen and played. We've found that when they're unboxed they get played even more often. Both games are easy to learn quickly. Quoridor remains challenging as it's strategies are easy to learn, tough to master. 

Panic Lab is a fast paced, playful game, perfect for multi age groups and keeping the kids off the video games for some family together time. The tin makes travel with Panic Lab a snap. This was my daughter's favorite, hands down. And I will say the kids beat the adults on this one on just about every round. The game play resulted in a lot of laughs. We highly recommend both games!

Many of Gigamic's puzzle and strategy games have educational benefits while the wooden games also make beautiful (yet functional) decorations as coffee table games, on home bars, in man caves and on desks. Many of the tin games are great for travel and will make fantastic stocking stuffers. They are fun, casual games with short teaching time and are fast to play. Gigamic makes quality games that stand the test of time. Quarto is celebrating 25 years and Quoridor is celebrating 20! Whether you want a timeless classic keepsake or a colorful newcomer, Gigamic has you covered.
