58 – The Family Gamers Podcast – Camping Games
As we mentioned last week, we’ve been camping! We talk about several camping-themed games from Education Outdoors.
We discuss how we set parameters for personal screen time for our oldest on trips: she can only use it in appropriate circumstances, without recharging. Now that she has had the same rules a few times, she’s figured out how to stretch out her screen time and make it last, rather than playing it non-stop for the first day. Almost like that’s what we have suggested in the past!
What we’ve been playing:
Exploding Kittens (friends got it out from the library!)
War (Wikipedia has the rules)
Cribbage – a great example of adults and kids playing together!
Poker, mostly played among children who don’t know all the rules
Please check out our recent written reviews, including Potion Explosion.
Video games: Andrew finally beat the first set of the Master Sword trials in the Zelda: Breath of the Wild bonus content.
Horizon Zero Dawn
The kids have picked up Portal 2 and are slowly each making their way through the solo campaign. They tried the co-operative mode, but it is so hard.
They have also started playing Type:Rider. It seems to be helping Asher with persistence.
The Family Gamers will definitely be at PAX Unplugged!
At the end of the show, we announce the winners of our most recent giveaway.
Honorable mention to Qwingo, which we are looking forward to playing many more times.
Do you have any games you love to play when camping?
