Game Night schedule

So, hey! We had great fun at Game Night last Friday. Erin S. and Emily taught us all how to play Backseat Drawing Jr., a fantastic family game that’s featured in our holiday catalog (watch your mailbox this week — the catalog is on the way).

We’ll be hosting our next Game Night on Friday, November 6th, from 6PM to 8PM. It’ll be pretty rollicking, since Erin S. is planning to feature Capture the Gag, one of her very favorite active games. The November Game Night will be the last one for 2009, though — in December, Pufferbellies will be playing host to a very special guest on Friday evenings. A little hint: our special guest will be flying in from way up north via an unconventional mode of transportation. Stay tuned for more details.

Game Night at Pufferbellies – Friday, July 3

Boom! Boom!  BOOM!

Thunder? The sound of fireworks at the Fourth of July? – NO!  It’s Chickyboom! the newest game from BlueOrange Games.  Chickyboom! is a unique balancing game with chickies, hay bales, and wagon wheels galore.  The set up for the game is as much fun as the playing!  Join us next Friday for Game Night as we learn Chickyboom!, Gobblet Gobblers, Zimbbos and other fun games designed for 4 years and up.

If you’re older than 4, don’t think these games aren’t for you – they’re challenging for everyone.  We’ll also pull out other cool games as we go along.  There will be snacks, prizes, and the grand giveaway of one of the games we play throughout the evening.  Plus, you’ll receive 10% off the purchase of featured games during Game Night.  Get out of the heat and join us for a BOOMING good time before the fireworks on our nation’s birthday.

Please join us for Game Night – Friday, July 3 from 6-8 pm — and check out the video below for a sneak peek at Chickyboom.

Reminder – Game Night is TONIGHT

Don’t forget to stop by tonight (that’s Friday, June 5) between 6pm and 8pm for some fun and hijinks as Erin S. hosts our third Game Night of the year. She’ll be teaching some of our favorite 12-minute games like Go Nuts, Wig Out, and Go Bananas. Plus, we’ll be giving away gift certificates to The Split Banana, and there will be Gummi Bears all around. See you soon!

Game night success!

Tonight, we hosted a really, really fun game night featuring two of our favorite games of skill and luck: Double Shutter and YamSlam from Blue Orange Games. There was a pickup game of Buzzword, too, which was great. We gave away gift certificates to The Split Banana, and one lucky winner took home a free copy of YamSlam! There was a lot of rowdiness, plenty of pretzels, Gummi Bears all around and only one spilled juice box.

Our next Game Night will be Friday, June 5th, from 6pm to 8pm. Mark your calendar now, and keep your eyes on this blog and our Twitter feed for details on the featured games.

Friday mayhem – Ruditoonz and Game Night

This morning, we hosted a wonderful concert by Indiana kids’ musician Ruditoonz. The house was packed, and there was plenty of singing, dancing and clapping. We have CDs available for sale here at the store if you didn’t get a chance to pick one up after the show. Here’s what it looked like from my vantage point at the back:


Tonight, we have even more fun in store — that’s right, it’s Game Night. Join us from 6pm – 8pm to learn two of our favorite games, eat snacks, and register to win prizes.

Game Night is Friday, May 1st

Guess what? It’s almost time for Game Night!

Next Friday, May 1st, please join us from 6pm – 8pm to learn two of our favorite games from the award-winning Blue Orange Games.

Double Shutter is a fast-paced game that calls for lots of luck and a little strategy as you roll to shut two rows of tiles numbered 1-9.  Any tiles left standing are added up to equal your score for the round. Play by yourself or with a crowd.

YamSlam is BRAND NEW and takes the fun of Yahtzee and Poker and puts them in one fun shaped box. Roll the dice and try to collect the most points possible before all of the chips are gone. Make pairs, three of a kind, straights, full houses and flushes or go for a YamSlam with all dice showing the same number.

Bring your family and friends for this fun-packed night of games, snacks and prizes. We’ll be giving away one of our featured games to a lucky winner, as well as gift certificates to everybody’s favorite gelato shop, The Split Banana. Plus, you’ll get 10% off the featured games if you purchase them during the event!
