These games would be a great alternative to candy this Easter!

I received these products from Amigo Games for review.  Children look forward to waking up on Easter morning to find that the Easter Bunny has left them a basket full of candy while they slept.  But in our house, the Easter Bunny also leaves additional surprises that are not candy.  These games are exactly the types of surprises he likes to leave for us.  They will provide your family with hours of fun, night after night.  They are available at most major retailers and on Amazon.  You can use the STORE FINDER on the Amigo Games website to find a store near you that carries them. 

L.L.A.M.A. Card Game has a suggested retail price of $9.99.  It's recommended for ages 8 and over.  You need 2-6 players to play and the average game time is 20 minutes.  L.L.A.M.A. was made in Germany by the well known inventor Reiner Knizia.  It has a unique scoring system that adds strategy and risk.  It was nominated for the 2019 Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year).

Try to get rid of all your cards so you don't take any markers.  If you can't you'll have a real dillama - should you pick another card or should you quit?  Maybe you can play that card later, but if not, you've just hurt your score.  The player with the fewest markers wins in this game with the name that says it all:  Don't Let Llamas And Markers Accumulate!

L.L.A.M.A. is made up of 56 Linen Finish Cards, 70 Chips and Illustrated Instructions.  The whole family will enjoy playing this game, so it's a perfect for choice for family game night!

CLACK! Categories has a suggested retail price of $24.99.  It's recommended for ages 7 and over.  It's a 2-8 player game and has an average game time of 10 minutes.  Only one little twist separates CLACK! Categories from the top selling CLACK! Game, but its built in extra challenge is just enough to make it ideal for older kids.  Spread out the magnetic discs, roll the dice and scramble to find something from the category and color shown.  Red dogs, yellow donuts, green trucks - they all fit into categories such as animals, food and vehicles.  Make a match, grab a disc and use its magnetic clack to build a stack.  Keeping score is easy - just line up the stacks to see whose tower is tallest.

CLACK! Categories consists of 48 Magnetic Discs, 1 Color Die, 1 Category Die and Illustrated Instuctions.

Déjà Vu has a suggested retail price of $14.99.  It's recommended for ages 8 and over.  This 2-6 player game has an average game time of 15 minutes.  Visual memory makes this a great family game.  It has thick, high quality game pieces and oversized cards, so it's easy for little hands (and older hands) to pick them up and handle them.  Without rule changes, Déjà Vu gets more challenging the more it is played.

Déjà Vu...that feeling that you have seen or done something before.  You're gonna get that feeling a lot when you play this game!  You could swear you've seen that before...or have you?  Flip over a card and look at the images, then flip over another.  When you think you're seeing something for the second time, grab the matching object from the table.  Your memory can play tricks on you in the first round because many objects look similar, but it's even trickier as play continues and you're seeing objects again and again...or are you?  

Déjà Vu is made up of 36 Objects, 36 Cards and Instructions.  This is a really fun game that is perfect for your family game night.

Heimlich & Co. has a suggested retail price of $19.99 and is recommended for ages 8 and over.  This 2-7 player game has an average game time of 30 minutes.  This game has very simple rules, but it's packed with strategy.  It is the winner of Europe's top game award "Spiel des Jahres" (Game of the Year).

Heimlich & Co. is the ultimate top secret spy game!  Intrigue abounds in this Cold War classic, as secret agents try to conceal their identities while earning points for collecting classified information from a secret safe.  The game play is simple:  Players roll the die and move any spy they choose.  When a spy lands on the building with the safe, every agent earns points and the safe moves to another building.  It's fast moving, fun and full of deception.

Inside the box you will find 7 Secret Agent Playing Pieces, 7 Scoring Tokens, 7 Secret Agent Passport Cards, 1 Safe Playing Piece, 8 Playing Pieces Stands, 1 Die, 1 Game Board, Instructions and a Bonus Expansion Pack of 26 Top Secret Cards.
