Looking for some family games to play or gift this holiday season? Check these out

I received these products from Amigo Games for Review.  If you are looking for some great family games to play or gift this holiday season, look no further than Amigo Games!  They have an awesome selection of fun games at reasonable prices.  All Amigo Games 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.

X-Code has a suggested retail price of $19.99.  This 2-8 player game is recommended for ages 8 and over.  The average game time is 30 minutes.  This challenging game creates togetherness because all players work together as a team.  It has 10 levels of missions that get progressively more challenging to solve.  And it has two sealed card boxes with secret challenges...players must crack the seals to reveal them.

Mayday!  The world’s computer networks are down, and you can only bring them back by entering a secret 12 digit code.  But you can’t do it alone...tell the other players what you’re missing to complete your part of the code, then swap to collect the cards you need.  But each card can only be passed in one direction, so you’ll need to work together in this frenetic game that requires good communication, strategy, a little luck and lots of skill.  And that’s only for the first level!  There are 10 levels in all, and they get more and more challenging as you progress in this game that's designed to bring people together.

Each X-Code game comes with 48 code cards, 6 wild cards, 12 time cards, game board, a 3 minute timer, illustrated instructions a 2 additional top secret game sets.

Escape From The Hidden Castle has a suggested retail price of $19.99.  This 2-8 player game is recommended for ages 7 and over and has an average game time of 30 minutes.  

You can run and you can hide, but only for a moment! 
With strategy and a little luck, players try to scurry away from the phantom and escape the castle.  On each turn, a roll of the die moves one player forward or unleashes the phantom.  Players can hide in the safety of the castle’s chambers, until another player boots them out.  In the end, there’s no escape...for all but one.  The phantom speeds up as the game goes on, building drama and tension.  The double sided board uses the same rules, but adds expanded play.

Components of this game include 30 castle guests, 8 scoring tokens, 1 Phantom, 1 Phantom token, 2 Phantom clips, 30 Guest stands, 1 game board, 1 die and instructions.

CLACK! Categories has a suggested retail price of $24.99.  This 2-8 player game is recommended for ages 7 and over.  The average game time is 10 minutes. 
The magnetic discs (magnets are safely sealed inside the discs) connect with a satisfying “clack” when you stack them.  Substituting categories for exact matches makes it ideal for older kids and adults and play is constant as every player plays on every turn.  Each game comes with 48 magnetic discs, 1 color die, 1 category die and illustrated instructions.

Only one little twist separates CLACK! Categories from the original 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.  You'll have a blast playing this game!
