Playing Through the Holidays with Kroeger Inc. – Reviews

Keeping a family entertained and away from a screen can be a bit of a challenge, especially during the holiday season. A great way to get the gang having fun during this special time of the year is by playing games! Kroeger Inc.  is all about connecting people with great and creative games. They asked my family if we would like to test out some of their games to see if we would have fun playing games through the holidays. We love playing games in our home, so we could not wait to start playing!

Below are the four games we received to start having fun with:

  • Trash Pandas
  • Rubik’s Battle
  • Cahoots
  • Monster Crunch

Collecting trash just became fun!

The saying “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” Has taken on a whole new meaning with Trash Pandas. Players pretend they are wily racoons as they paw through the deck of cards to find sets of food that has been tossed away in the trash. Players must roll the die to tip over the garbage or have the chance to rummage through their rival stash, so long as there are no Doggos around. The player who has stashed the most trash at the end of the game is the rascally winner! This game is suggested for 2-4 players ages 8+.

Since we have racoons that like to visit our neighbourhood for hidden treasures, my kids thought this game was so funny! After going through all of the rules of this game, it was a somewhat easy for our younger kids to get through the game. The biggest issue for them was remembering each symbol meant on each side of the die. There are a lot of rules to remember, and even I had to refer to the riles pamphlet a few times to get through the game.

Even though there are a few things to keep in mind to be successful at Trash Pandas, we did have fun playing this game. See all of the things we could collect and the Stash Points they were worth, we kept laughing and want to get everyone else’s cards. This game was a good one to play.

A new twist on a classic toy

Many of us have heard or have played with the classic Rubik’s Cube. Decades later, there is a new twist on this classic toy to enjoy. Rubik’s Battle is a brain-teasing card game that challenges players to think quickly on their feet. Players can earn Rubik’s Battle Cards by calling out the unique Cubie colour before anyone else does. The winner is the player who is holding all of the Rubik’s Battle Cards at the end of the game. This game is suggested for 2-4 players ages 7+.

My younger kids are all about learning about patterns. This is what they are learning about at school. Figuring out the unique Cubie colour each time made this game more fun for everyone!

Another great aspect of this game is its size. It is small enough to put away just about anywhere around our home. This game would also be ideal for the kids to take in the back seat and play while on the road or to play at a loved one’s home any time!

Playing as a team makes everyone a winner

Working as a team is the name of the game when the gang is together to play Cahoots™. Players place cards into one of one of four piles by matching colour or number. There are a series of goals set out for players to use to complete these goals – all without saying to one another which cards are in your hands. This game is suggested for 2-4 players ages 10+.

This game really makes your brain work. Some of the cards you may have in your hand would fit into many of the piles in front of you. Others fit none of them. My eldest and I helped my younger daughter get through this game since there is a lot to keep track of for this game.

We really liked playing this game. Working together to fill all of our piles without sharing what we had in our hands was a fun challenge. It taught us how important patterns and cooperation was to complete this game. We had a blast playing Cahoots!

A nostalgic and tasty way to enjoy monsters

Do you remember the days when monsters ruled your breakfast table? Monster Crunch is a nostalgic breakfast cereal game where the battle is on for cereal bowl supremacy! in this fast-paced game, each player picks a Monster Cereal character. With some strategy, their special powers, and a bit of luck, players collect as many Cereal Cards in their bowls as they can. The Monster that ends up taking the most bites of cereal is the winner.

Hail! Hail! The gang’s all here, big kids! Boo Berry, Yummy Mummy, Fruit Brute, Franken Berry, and, of course, the vampire himself, Count Chocula! It took my girls and I a while to pick our characters because they were all so much fun to choose from!

Once the game was set up, we got under way to battle it out be become the supreme Monster Cereal champion. It was really simple to follow the rules of this game. They were easy for kids young and old to understand. The look of this game is extremely cute. Many of the cards for this game are bright and chunky, perfect for little fingers to pick up and play with. Finally, this game only takes about twenty minutes to play. This allows for a child to stay focused for the whole game, and in our case, want to start up a new game!

It was fun to enjoy this “cereal” again as an adult and to share my love of these early morning breakfast cereal characters.

Playing through the holidays in a fun way

My family really had an amazing time playing all of these games from Kroeger Inc.! Our brains got a fun workout. The game ideas are interesting and fun. Some of the games have a bit happening, but we were able to figure it out and enjoy playing them again and again. We also cannot wait to play these games with our loved one when they come to visit us this holiday season. This will keep us entertained so many days to come!

  1. What I like best about playing games with my kids and with my grandkids is it lots of fun and we spend time together, plus gets them off their electronic devices!

  2. The monster crunch looks like a lot of fun but we are a trash panda loving family so I KNOW my boys would love that game. Racoons and squirrels are the BEST.

  4. I like that it’s something else to do and some learning along the way too, no need to hide your face in your phone all the time!

  5. OH I think i’d go for the trash panda one for sure..I’ve never seen a racoon here in SK but I know we do have some as my one ex co-worker has take pics of them

  6. I like playing games with my grandchildren because I seem to learn something new about their personalities each time we play.
