The evil, that took Mr. Murray, uses creative weapons and targets on to the darkest memories and wishes to fulfill. Tricky situations created to deceive your vision but to offer something to reduce the pain from the past. No matter if it comes from bullies, demanding parents, or disappeared father, the evil knows which buttons to push.

Wordsearch! Fun Group Word Puzzle Board Game | Goliath Games

Goliath Games Wordsearch!

Two years ago we visited our nephew in Montreal. He is older than Teddy and has various board games. Kids played a lot during our visit and since that time Teddy is a huge fan of board games. They provide great opportunity to learn something new, have fun together with family & friends and reduce the time kids spend online.

One of the games which teaches kids spelling and new words, plus focus and speed is Wordsearch! Based on classical wordsearch puzzle, Wordsearch! from Goliath Games comes as a specially-designed circular board with four compartments to keep game tiles. Designed for kids ages 7 and up the game is great for from 2 to 4 players. Each player chooses one color see-through tiles to play.

Wordsearch game

There are 8 Double-sided Game Cards split by themes like Kitchen or Animals. Players put one of the cards on the board and reveal the word in a slot by turning the rim. Everyone plays at once, the first who locate the word has to shout Wordsearch and then mark the found word with his tiles. It is allowed to remove tiles played by competitors. The words need to be searched in any direction: vertical, horizontal, right to left, diagonal or left to right. The player with the most tiles on the board at the end wins.

This is quite tricky game to play, especially when more tiles cover the board and you need to focus to find the right sequence of letters. Plus there are some unknown words, like Teddy did not know names of some kitchen utensils, so find something unfamiliar is a challenge itself. We had times when we could not find a word for a prolonged period of time and almost were ready to give up.

Goliath Games WordSearch

Since there are only 16 cards to play, when all become easy to figure out you can print new ones using Wordsearch Puzzle generator at http://www.wordsearch.eu. It offers themed puzzles like countries or favorite sports or you can add own words to add to the puzzle.

Available on Amazon, Walmart and at other major toy retailers across North America, Wordsearch! puzzle game brings unforgettable experience and create hours of fun for the whole family!

Daphne & Velma - Best Friends Face Mystery For The First Time | Warner Bros.

“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray/DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.” 
Daphne And Velma

Recent Warner Bros. Home Entertainment release of "Daphne and Velma"  takes us to the time when famous female duo started their first adventures. Solving mysteries became their fate. We go back when Daphne and Velma started their first day at Ridge Valley High. This high school is more like an innovative center of learning where robots, tech and education tools are designed to the highest standards, and only the brightest minds of the country can be enrolled at this school. Daphne Blake, bright and brilliant student, can't wait to join the school with her best friend analytical and practical Velma Dinkley.

We follow children who are heading to school for new school year. Daphne is excited like no one else for the first day but as for Velma, you should watch her fearless epic walk to the school and first encounters with students and the staff.

The school is amazing with latest advancements and every student's score, grades and achievements are reflected in real mode. There are big screens, unique gadgets and endless opportunities there. But not everything is as perfect as it seems when mysterious disappearances of the top-performing students become quite suspicious. Once smart and brilliant, children come back to school absolutely different and cannot handle simple everyday tasks.

Velma

It looks like intriguing and scary mystery to solve, so Daphne and Velma take the challenge to find what is going on, first trying to reach the top in the school performance list. Soon they find out that the disappearances are somehow connected to the school sponsor. During their investigation journey girls make new friends, deal with over-protective parents, break rules, wear shame stickers, work in the school cafeteria and do many other things to solve the mystery.

As Daphne and Velma's search continues, they come to the point that someone hunts not only for best students' minds, but for the brilliant ideas of grown-ups too. But who is that mysterious person or organization? 


I had an impression that it is only Daphne and Velma want to know what happens with the top students while other just want to improve their performance. While I like both female characters from Mystery Inc, Velma impressed me the most in this movie. I think, from how Velma looks and her behavior, she is very close to her cartoon character. She is funny, true to herself, fights robots and really smart.

Daphne and Velma movie is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital!
