Kick-Off the Summer Season With Asmodee (Giveaway) #backyardboardgames



The sun is out and boy can you feel it when you step outside! I don't know about you, but with summer slowly creeping around the corner and with us continuing to staying at home while still being in a global pandemic, we're trying to figure out how to keep ourselves and kiddos entertained this summer.

Canada’s May long weekend is known as the unofficial kick-off to summer, with celebrations usually centered around our summer activity favourites like backyard BBQs and outdoor activities.  My family normally spends the long weekend at my in-laws camping out in their backyard and spending the entire long weekend together. Although the festivities may be a little smaller and scaled-back this year we're trying to come up with other ways to make staying home more enjoyable. 

By now you all know how much we ladies at Just Us Girls enjoy the family games from Asmodee Canada. This year Asmodee is encouraging Canadian families to participate in #backyardboardgames, starting this Victoria Day long weekend, bringing some of the classic Asmodee titles to your outdoor festivities. 

So we've teamed up with Asmodee Canada to share with you lovely readers a handful of classic games you can play this summer while hanging out in your backyard and to offer one of you readers a chance at winning one of the four games. 


Azul: Glazed Pavilion is an expansion pack for existing fans of the gorgeous Azul tile game.
