Here is a listing of the many awards Continuum Games have won.

I was lucky enough to be able to review two of their great games Lumps, and Family Talk 2.

Lumps the Elf Coal game: Retail $7.99 ages 6 and up

Getting coal in your stocking is now the best gift of the holidays! 

The Lumps Legend: Children around the world have been so good over the past few years; lumps of coal have built up at the North Pole. Puzzled by what to do with the excess coal; Santa’s elves decided to create an exciting new game that uses lumps of coal of all shapes and sizes. The game is so much fun, good little boys and girls, for the first time ever, are excited to get lumps of coal in their stocking!
Lumps, the Elf Coal Game is the most addictive family dice game you’ll ever play! The goal is to score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. Roll a pair of 3s, score 3 points…a pair of 10s scores 10 points. What makes the game unique is that it has four different types of dice and there are few high numbers. On each turn you have to make decisions on which dice to keep and re-roll. Do you play it safe and hold a pair of 4s, or chance it and try for a high pair? The endless possibilities make Lumps exciting and addictive. Great stocking stuffer!

 My Review:

My family just loves to play games together and I was so happy to be able to review the two great games from Continuum Games. The family talk  2 game.

When the games arrived, my daughter could not wait to play them, so we played them right after dinner.

This game really got our family taking! We just sat in the living room talking about the answers to the questions. A great way for the family to get together and laugh. My daughter is six and some of the questions did not pertain to her, and she did not know how to answer them. But my husband and I had a good laugh, especially with the what is your favorite joke question… My daughter has some cute jokes.  We really just had fun talking together. With no video games, no TV. It was nice. I will have to pick up some of the other Family Talk games they have … The Original Family Talk, and Camp Talk seem like so much fun.

When my daughter is misbehaving I tell her if you don’t start acting better Santa will be putting coal in your stocking! But now there is a fun “coal in your stocking” gift that kids will love to get.  The game comes in a cute little stocking, my daughter said aww… it is so cute!  
The goal of the game is to score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. Roll a pair of 3s, score 3 points…a pair of 10s scores 10 points etc… It was quick to play and we played it again and again.  It is a simple and fun game that each member of the family enjoyed playing. 

The one thing I like the most about the games we reviewed was that they are portable. We can bring the Family Talk 2 game for long car trips. And when we travel, the Lumps game is the perfect size to play in the airport…

I would recommend Continuum Games, their games are well made and made for families to have fun together.

With the holidays right around the corner these games would make a great gift. They are very family friendly games, that everyone can play. SO if there are any kids on your list, they will have loads of fun playing these games with their families.
