Awesome Pack is a monthly subscription box that delivers board games, card games, and other "awesome" entertainment. The last couple of boxes have failed to wow me, so I was seriously considering ending my subscription if this box didn't thrill me. Despite a mis-step or two, Awesome Pack definitely improved this month.
I am thrilled that this game was in the box. The original CODENAMES was in an earlier Awesome Pack, and it has proven very popular at Donna's gaming parties. This sounds like a fun spin on the concept that could prove very challenging and lead to hilarious results.
Game's retail price: $7-$10 (guessing)
This one looks fun for a fast, silly game. It's easy to learn, according to the box, so maybe I'll be able to play it with my nephews in another year or two. Each game only lasts 3-5 minutes, according to the box, so this might be a good one to keep around for when you're waiting around somewhere, for a restaurant reservation or in a movie line, and just need to kill a few minutes.
THE WORLD'S SMALLEST JIGSAW PUZZLE: TIMES SQUARE
I do like puzzles! This is a weird one. It's a tiny, postcard-sized puzzle, made up of pieces that are so itty bitty they must be handled with tweezers. It won't be the most challenging puzzle (except the challenge of not losing the pieces, I guess) but it'll be a fun novelty to play with.
HULK TRADING CARDS
I'll just go ahead and save this for the next time I need a White Elephant gift. It can be someone else's disappointment.
