A Thank You, and Luau Party Games Review

First of all, I wanted to extend my deepest thanks and well wishes to all of my awesome readers. I am so blessed and think its AWESOME that this blog has 45 Readers! What a great thing!

Thank you all for going on this journey with me! Thank you for sticking with me!

Now onto the business of this post. Just a few days ago, I posted this review of the Luau Party Ideas Ebook.  Just a reminder that this ebook is free (!) to anyone, all you have to do is sign up to the Python Printable Games Newsletter  and it's yours to keep!

"The eBook contains the Moo-Luau Mad Libs, FREE Luau Invitations, and a coupon for 10 percent off the Luau game pack, plus lots of Luau party planning tips and recipes." 

Check out the book!

I was lucky enough to receive a link to review the various luau games available for purchase the other day, and you yourself can get this game pack with the coupon mentioned above!

The first game I viewed, was the "Hawaiian Moo-Lau Mad Libs". This game is the game provided for free in the Party Idea book already.  It is colorful, fun, and I like it because you really choose how the game goes.  Just like the Mad Libs from when we were kids, you fill in a word list and then enter your words with in a story. This can really be as funny as you want it to be, depending on what words you enter. It can be catered for a kid or adult party!

The second thing I viewed was the luau party doll set. This again, is very like the paper dolls from when we were kids.  The set is provided blank, which I think could be fun because you could color it on your own. The second set is in color and only needs to be cut out and placed on the paper dolls provided.  I think this would mostly be fun for a kids party, and only if you had several copies of the set, already cut out. Younger kids wouldn't have the fine motor control to cut them out, but would enjoy the activity. Older kids and adults I think may find it a tad boring or pointless. I also think it could slow the pace of a good luau.  One idea/thought I had, for those of us that are DIYers, it would be fun to back these paper dolls on popsicle sticks and use them as food labels or just decorations in and around the party.

The third game I viewed was the Luau Newlywed Game, and this is very similar to the original Newlywed game. You answer questions about your spouses, and see who matches the most to determine a winner. I think it would be fun to use this in like a luau themed bridal/couples shower or even if you have a couples night with some friends. See which couples know the most about each other and break the ice over some fruity/tropical drinks with this fun game!

Finally, the last game I viewed was called "Lei it On Me"  It would be a great ice breaker for any Luau themed party. Everyone starts out with a lei on, draws a card and fills in the blank. Then, you place all the filled in cards back into the stack.  Once someone pulls a card, they have to guess who filled it out. If they are right, they earn another flower lei, if they are wrong, the owner of the answer wins the flower lei. At the end, the person with the most flower lei's wins. From a young adult perspective (I'll be 26 in like a week), this would be fun to play as a drinking game as well, lol!  **Disclaimer- I do not condone underage drinking, or drinking and driving! If you are underage, please do not drink!  If you are of age, and do drink , please make sure you have a designated driver!!**

All in all, I think if you have a good crew of people and the makings of a good party, these games would be a fun addition. After all, you and your imagination are what make the games work!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
