Well today marks a FULL week of our 2012 adventure. So far we have written our first blog, tested the Hurricane Simulator, built a table out of VHS tapes, tried Pho, explored the creepy woods behind our house and visited the Bellevue Art Museum. What a great week it has been. We have had a lot of fun talking to different people about things we should do and our list is up to 115 things. It’s good. BUT we still need more. So keep up the comments and keep spreading the word! The more people in on this adventure , the more ideas we will have.
But that still leaves us with today. Day 7. Jaryl woke up with no voice this morning. So right away I knew today would need to be an at home adventure. It has been an amusing day to say the least. Throughout the day we have been testing his voice to see if it is getting any better. Our test phrase is this
“My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard. And They’re like, it’s better than yours.”
Believe me when I say that does not get old. His crackley high-pitched wisp of a voice only makes that song better.
So today I made a quick run to Uncle’s Games. It is a great store filled with classic games, new games and just plain strange games. The staff are friendly and knowledgable. Plus you can try out games in their little game area. It was here that we were introduced to Shut the Box and Fluxx. A couple of days ago one of the employees suggested that we try out a game called Kittens In A Blender. I know how it sounds. But just bear with me. At the time the game sounded fun but we passed. Now with Jaryl’s crackling voice I had an excuse to try it!
So today we try Kittens in a Blender.
“Sure, kittens are curious by nature, but when these adorable kittens play in a kitchen full of dangerous appliances, it is up to you to save them. This fast-paced card game has players working to save all of their own kittens before the unthinkable happens.”
That’s right. You pick which color kitten is yours. I chose red (cause it looked like pink). And Jaryl chose blue. We each had 16 unique and adorable kittens (complete with cute names). We had to save our kittens from the blender, while trying to harm the other person’s kittens. I know it sounds awful. But it was fun. And hey, the box does say a portion of proceeds goes to a “no kill cat shelter.”
Jaryl had a good time acting out the cats in the blender. (What a goof.) He says “The person who designed this game is a genius. It’s good for people who love to save kittens and people who want to blend them.”
Oh, and if you have to know. Jaryl Won. Sorry Pancake an Mr. Fluffers.
We rate this game a 10/10. At just $10 it is affordable, easy to learn and super fun.
Kittens in a blender is for 2-8 players , recommended for ages 8 and over, and takes 20-40 minutes to play.
Let us know if you want to check it out! Game night!!!!!!!!
