SNAP Revew – Mind Space
Roll dice and draw shapes on your “brain board”, fitting a little bit of everything into your life. This odd theme works surprisingly well.
Mind Space allows up to five players, with limited player interaction.
Welcome Stephanie Nye!
Stephanie started on Instagram, with a focus on cozy living, special daily moments, and family time. A lot of reading, some board games.
As board games “took over”, she created a second account dedicated to that hobby.
Now, she also has a weekly newsletter “Feel Good Friday”, embracing all the small joys in life.
We think games help us slow down and focus on spending time together as a family.
