no electricity? Play games!!!

If you have read my blog for very long, you know that my family LOVES games....any kind!! Well, we have a new one to introduce you to.........QUELF.....thanks Heather!!!

This is a hilarious game......but you have to be in the mood to think and be CRAZY!!!

These pictures are not that great because we were outside playing this game. Our electricity went off......on the hottest day so far.......in the afternoon and didn't come back on till 1:00 this morning!!! ugh!

So what does the Bowyer family do when there is nothing else to do? Play a game of course!!!


every one takes a character game piece. The goal is to get your piece to the end of the colorful road.

You basically have to do whatever the card says you have to do. some things are timed, some last for the whole game. Jason drew a card that said he had to keep both his thumbs in his mouth, except when it was his turn, and when he talked...touch his shoulders. If you don't comply are someone catches you not performing your function....you are penalized!

Alyssa had to wear the game box in her shirt for the rest of the game.

Jason had to find something with a chin strap and wear it the rest of the game. This helmet was too small for him and he was miserable!!! ha!


It was getting dark, so we play by flashlight until the mosquitoes got too bad!


Some cards tell you to do things that you can't tell any one. Steve had to take pictures of us and get us to be crazy for no reason. if he used a real camera, he got to double his role the next turn. Funny thing is that inevitably someone will get curious about that persons card and have to read it......then the card will say that person get penalized, or the 3rd person to read it has to go back, or sometimes you get rewarded.......it is crazy.........

crazy fun!!!!

I never heard of that game - it sounds fun. It was a great use of your time as a family when your electricity was out. (Yuck - sticky!)

My husband hates games, but my son and I play them sometimes. One of my favorites is Smart Mouth. Do you have that one?

You're one for one at our house with your recommendation of DiceCapades, so I'll probably go for Quelf. We played another game recently that someone gave us. The name could be better but we all had fun. "Fact or Crap?" is the name. It's a trivia game - there's no way you could know this oddball stuff but it's interesting & silly.

YEAH! An un planned game night! What a great way to spend time with the family!
