I am a big fan of Winning Moves Games and have always loved playing board games, card games, and more with family and friends!  I was thrilled for to work with them to review a few of games--most of which I had never heard of or played.  I got to review  Classic Sorry®, 5ive Straight®, and  Stop It™.  I had tons of fun and here is a little run down of each game:
 Classic Sorry® 
The wonderful game of Sorry delighted players everywhere when introduced many decades ago. Not only was the game fun to play time and again, it was also easy to learn and featured beautiful playing equipment. Now you can relive this wonderful experience. Contains: Heavy-duty bi-fold gameboard with original artwork, 16 iconic Sorry pawns, Deck of 44 cards with classic artwork and illustrated instructions. Ages: 6+; Players: 1 to 4
We love Sorry!  Not only is it easy to play with the kids, but the game is so enjoyable!  There are so many little game plays (the sliding, the sorry cards, and more) that make the game entertaining and exciting.  You just never know what will happen next!  We love a little friendly family competition in our house and Sorry has and will always be a game we can get out when in need for some fun game play!

 5ive Straight® 
Since 1968, 5ive Straight has been a regional family favorite. And this new version is better than ever, thanks to its new one-piece plastic gameboard. Similar to Pente, players try to get 5 of their pegs in a row. It takes a unique combination of luck, skill, and careful planning! Contains: Plastic gameboard, 3 sets of colored plastic pegs, deck of 100 number cards, English and Spanish instructions. Ages: 8+; Players: 2 to 9
We had never played this game before but it actually reminded me of some fun peg games I used to play as a child.  I thought because I had played some peg games as a child that I would for sure beat my husband...wrong!  He's got way too much strategy for me to handle sometimes.  Haha.  But I LOVE the fact that just us two can play it, as finding fun two player games for us can sometimes be hard to find.  After the kids have gone to bed and the house is quiet, you can often find laughter coming from the kitchen table as my hubby and I like to play fun games like this a lot!

 Stop It™ 
Game play is simple. No waiting for turns. You’re always in the game! There are five colored suits of cards. Everybody plays cards sequentially to the table. If an opponent is on a roll and playing lots of cards, slap a STOP IT! card and bring him to a screeching halt. Score big if you’re the first player to go out on a round. Contains: Deck of custom Stop It! cards, scorepad, and illustrated instructions.
This was another great game that I was unfamiliar with before I got to review it.  I like card games so it was fun seeing a card game in the mix.  This game is intense!  In fact, it was a little crazy at first until I found my groove.  You gotta be fast and get your cards down in the right order.  And don't forget to "STOP" when someone is on a run!  We've even began playing this game with our kids because I thought it was a great way to teach numbers, colors, and even confidence!  We like the game a lot!
