Spring Break with Asmodee Canada (Review & Giveaway)

With the days in quarantine seeming to be endless, my hubby and I have been making game night a regular occasion. With Spring Break being around the corner, and with the new lockdown restrictions, we were lucky enough to get the opportunity to try out a few new games that caught our eye from our friends over at Asmodee Canada, and we didn’t regret it. We were sent Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers, Catan: The Dice Game, and Spot It! Collector.

Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers is an adventure board game where you and your fellow players work together to build a vast land that includes rivers, lakes, forests, and grasslands. During this process, you collect points for completing areas, hunting animals, and fishing the waters, with the objective being collecting the most points after the last tile is placed.

This game is extremely interesting to us because you’ll never play the same scenario twice, as you place and put each tile down, the lands you form will always be different, making a unique experience every time!

We absolutely love this game. It’s a great mix of strategy and competition, and each turn keeps you on your feet against your opponents. We would absolutely recommend this game to anyone that enjoys a nice family game night. In fact, we played this game with the in-laws and they loved it so much that they ordered it that night, while we were finishing our game up!

For the families and couples out there looking for an exciting dice game, that’s not only fun but quick to play, Catan is the game for you. The version of Catan we had was the miniature dice game, where the object of the game is to collect as many points as you can within 15 turns. Points are granted by building roads, settlements, cities, and knights, and each one carries a different point value through the progression of the game.

Catan is played with 6 dice that have resources on each side of them, and per turn, you can roll 3 times to make certain recipes that build things on the map. It is a game of strategy and risks as going for the hardest recipes will grant you the most points, but falling short will end up with you losing two points.

My husband and I loved this game because it’s one we can fit in at any point of the day. The game only takes around 15 minutes to play, so we can get a few games in before dinner, bed, or when our son is napping. Whilst being a relatively quick game to play, it’s a great strategy game that benefits with a stroke of luck when rolling the dice.

We would absolutely recommend Catan to all of our friends and family, and anyone who is looking for a new and exciting game to throw into game night, or as a break in a busy day. It has definitely become a game night regular in our house.

Ready to test your eyes and your reflexes? Because Spot it! Collector is the game that will put everything you know about quick reactions to the test. We were so excited to give this game a try, and it definitely held up to our expectations.

Spot It! Collector is a game of matching and quick thinking. One of the things we loved about this game is that there are actually 5 different versions of the game to play, so you can play a few then switch, and the game stays upbeat and fresh! Each card has a set of symbols and has one match with every other card in the deck. To quickly describe how to play, I will use the mini-game Tower as an example. Each player is dealt one card face down and the remaining stack is placed face up in the middle. At once, everyone turns their card over and has to find the matching symbol between their card and the tower card, and once you find it, be the quickest to grab that card off the top and add it to your hand. The game keeps going like that until the tower is cleared, and the person with the most cards wins. Each game variant has a similar style, with a different twist to keep it exciting.

This game not only is great for the entire family on game night but can be super fun with friends and some drinks for an adult version! Spot It! Collector has definitely become a regular for when our friends (that were in our social bubble before the latest lockdown) come over for game night, it brings out the competition and the laughs to go along with it. This game is also great for small groups as well, my hubby and I play with just the two of us and have lots of fun with it! We would definitely recommend Spot It! Collector to anyone looking to throw a fast-paced, competitive card game into their party night or family game night.
