Ever think about what we did for fun as kids? I played a lot of board games and loved every minute. I’m not sure when we stopped playing them, but I’d love to introduce my kids and grandkids to all my favorites. You can find a HUGE selection of classic games from Winning Moves Games. They also have toys, and cards that will take you back to your childhood and make great gift ideas.
Winning Moves Games
Winning Moves USA (WMUSA) is a leading maker of board games, card games, and puzzles. Since WMUSA’s first year of operation in 1995, the company has forged a close relationship with one of the world’s largest game companies, Hasbro, Inc., owner of Parker Brothers and Milton Bradley. As a result, many long-lived Parker Brothers and Milton Bradley games are now marketed by WMUSA!
WMUSA proudly markets best-selling titles like Pass The Pigs®, Pretty, Pretty, Princess®, Rack-O®, No Stress Chess®, and more!
With a talented group of game marketers and developers, WMUSA’s mission is to provide happiness to consumers by offering Classic, Retro, Cool and Fun games for play with friends and family.
I wanted to get a nice selection of classic games to bring to my family and friends. I found some great nostalgic games, upgraded classics, and some new games that will be a huge hit. When I was looking at the Winning Moves website, I realized that a lot of the classic games we love like Clue and Scattergories also have card game versions. It made me smile and excited at the same time.
Sometimes, you wanna play a classic game but you may not want to pull out the board, the pieces, and money. That is why the card game version of classic games is so much fun. I found Scrabble Slam, Scattergories, and Clue in card game form. Winning Moves also offers other card games such as Monopoly, Rook, and Canasta Caliente.
Classics with a Twist
I also discovered that some games have been mixed with other classics. For example, Monopoly and Scrabble have come together in a new game. How does that work, you ask? It’s super fun. Instead of rolling dice to move spaces, you build a word and your score determines the number of spaces you advance. How creative is that?!
Have you ever seen Clue Master Detective? The classic Clue board game is different. The game board layout is different, there are more weapons and suspects, and there are more rooms to investigate. I love the new rooms such as the courtyard and trophy room. Perfect for little detectives ages 10 and older.
Game of the States
A new game that I was introduced to is Game of the States. This board game is great for any child 8 years old and up.
Kids learn all about the United States by racing their trucks across country buying and selling goods along the way. Players will become familiar with the fifty states, their locations, capital cities, top products and learn interesting STEM facts about each state!
I love this game because it not only teaches kids (and some adults) interesting facts about the United States, but it is also fun. I could spend hours just reading the fact cards that come with it.
My Thoughts on Winning Moves Games
I will always have board games in my house. It’s ingrained in my DNA. Pulling out the boards, and setting up the games, it’s all part of the fun. Winning Moves Games has made finding and buying the classic board games I grew up with so easy. They also introduced me to classic games with a twist and some pretty great new games. Every item they have will make a perfect gift, whether it’s for the holidays, birthdays, or a get-well-soon present.
