Puzzles from Winning Moves Games {Giveaway} – CLOSED

We have a Christmas tradition at my house called a “Chocolate Puzzle Party” where we eat chocolate and bust out a certain nativity puzzle.  We usually pull it out a few nights before Christmas, but it must be finished in order for Christmas to come.  Some years we’re putting the last few pieces together on Christmas Eve in a rush to get it done in time!

Because of our tradition, Christmas and puzzles just go together with fond memories in my mind, so welcoming this Hobby Hill puzzle into our collection of holiday traditions seemed only perfectly right!logo

Winning Moves has an impressive collection of games for all ages, and many of them have been featured here on Dandy.  Their puzzles are just as wonderful, and this Holly Hill Pastime Puzzle makes such a wonderful gift!

I’m impressed with every part of this product.  The box is sturdy and glossy, and the pieces are crisply cut and vibrant in color.  This picture is so fun!  There is so much to look at in all its festive wonder!  We’ve been doing a lot of puzzles around here lately, but they are mostly for 3-yr-olds and I don’t get to help much.  I was really in the mood to do a puzzle on my own and enjoy the calm pleasure of piecing it together myself, so I selfishly cleared the kitchen counter and put this together a piece at a time throughout the day.  I’m kind of embarrassed to admit how much I enjoyed it!  I’ll share the experience next time, but I really loved being the first one to put it together on my own.

What makes this more than a standard puzzle are the 30 whimsical pieces that can be found throughout the puzzle!  In putting this together, I feel like I am constantly coming across the most wonderful Christmas shapes.

The details on every home, window, and wreath are beautiful!  The original painting must be huge, because a LOT of details went into this number.

Wouldn’t this make the perfect Christmas gift for your children, a friend, a teacher, or even a grandparent?  Puzzles are so classic and ageless!

SORRY!!  I have so many memories of playing this classic game with my brothers when we were little!  I realize now that we didn’t know the rules well, and weren’t actually playing the game right at all, but we still loved it!  There is just something about drawing that “Sorry” card, knocking your opponent over, and sending them straight back to Home that makes it so rewarding! 🙂

We recently got the new Classic Sorry from Winning Moves, and my husband and I have pulled it out almost every night!  Does that make us huge nerds?  We play one quick game before heading off to bed, and what makes this the perfect evening game is that you can hold a conversation while playing, and still enjoy the card-drawing strategic fun of a lighthearted game.

It may look simple, but we’ve discovered that there are indeed strategies to this game, and that it can turn around into the other player’s favor in a matter of a few turns.  Within the rules are additional rules for “Point Sorry” for Adult Play, which isn’t anything sketchy, I promise!  Its just another way of adding in some tricks and rules to make it even more interesting.

IMG_5855After several weeks of at least one nightly game, we think this game is top-notch.  The cards are crisp, thick, and glossy, the board has a nice finish, and the the tokens are pretty indestructible.  I really enjoy not having a ton of pieces to set up or piles of cards to arrange.  I love the simplicity of it all.  Man, I love Sorry.

IMG_5856And just so you know, I’ve been losing 9 times out of 10, and I still love playing it every night!

Winning Moves Games carries SO MANY fun classics such as Yahtzee and Monopoly…
