The Best Gaming Gifts for the Holidays

Best Gaming Gifts

With 3 boys, PC gaming accessories are on all of their wish lists. I have had to learn about PC accessories myself because a hobby or lifestyle gamer wants the top of the line, quality accessories that look good too. One day I had asked the oldest if he had heard of Glorious PC Gaming Race products and he perked up. It is the go-to PC accessories brand with his friends that want quality and aesthetics as one of the best gaming gifts that they can actually afford in the mid-20’s budgets.

Our son uses the Glorious PC GMMK Compact Keyboard. He loves using this for many of his games but more than the compact size, he loves the modular feature of switches and keys. Easily remove keycaps & switches for this keyboard with any combo and brand of a compatible MX switches.

Glorious PC has made the change to go to USB-C and the colors are customizable with many modes. The keyboard has a heavy (durable) feel for its size and the key sounds are smooth. It comes in a package with the keyboard, ESC keycap, 1 switch puller tool, 1 key puller tool and braided USB cable. It comes in 3 sizes, we have and love the compact size.

This is the Model D Glorious mouse (see HERE) and I took this photo in the dark because it looks so pretty (OK, maybe pretty isn’t the right adjective choice for a gaming mouse). This mouse is light and has a great ergonomic feel with its honeycomb design. It is built for speed, comfort and control.

It comes with their Ascend Cord that is ultra-flexible and super lightweight. With this mouse you get premium G-Skates – 100% pure Virgin PTFE, rounded edges that don’t snag on your pad. The control is amazing.

Glorious PC has a few mouse and keyboard models as well as mouse pads, accessory hangers and more. Find the keyboard keys and switches your gamer needs as well – several to choose from.

Make sure you visit Glorious PC Gaming Race if you have a gamer. They truly have the best aesthetics, popular name and quality accessories at great prices! Make sure to also visit the Glorious PC Gaming Race Amazon store.

You're Pulling My Leg Game to Get to Know Your Family Better

Whether you are playing games as a family together or finding games to play with friends and family remotely, You’re Pulling My Leg game by award-winning game creator Allen Wolf, will entertain for many rounds! It is so simple yet engaging for all ages. There is also a Junior version for the kids ages 9+. The standard game is for ages 13+.

How to Play You’re Pulling My Leg Game

During the game, players choose a question from the cards of over 600 questions within the book. The secret flip of the coin tells them if their answer should be true or made up. When players hear a story, they vote points on if they think a player is telling the truth or pulling their leg. Players win points if you’re right but lose them if you’re wrong. Players try to bluff others and try not to let other players fool them. The first player to 21 points wins.

I plan to keep the book on the dining table when I will have guests over. I know the tweens for sure will grab it and start playing. You can actually learn a thing or two from friends and family as they reveal truths and fun facts about themselves.

EXIT The Game brings the escape room experience to your home (ages 10+)

EXIT: The Game brings the escape room experience to your home

Have you ever experienced an escape room event? If you have teens and need a party gathering idea, I challenge you to try an actual escape room. Its puzzles and riddles that get you out of the rooms and the faster you solve them the faster you move to the Exit. EXIT The Game are games for ages 10+ (depending on the version as some are 12+ and 16+). These bring the escape room to your home!

EXIT The Game

Anthony is 12 and we first learned about EXIT The Game from Thames and Kosmos when we visited Sweet Suite Toy Fair in NYC a few years back. Anthony was a tad young, had never experienced an escape room but I thought these looked so fun. Now he is a few years older and I finally got my hands on a few to try.

Once we realized how to solve page 1 riddle we began to make more sense and moved through the rest – yes, we had to use all 3 hint cards but this was our first attempt. We played House of Riddles rated for his age and it was challenging, a good thing! See how hard he is contemplating below…

I have not dug into The Catacombs of Horror as that is an expert level ages 16+ but we will graduate to that soon enough. The riddles are fun and perhaps there is a bit of a theme to the set of riddles as you turn each page.

The instruction booklet worked well for us, but the best way to learn to play EXIT The Game is to download the Kosmos Helper App. In the app, you can find animated explanations of the instructions and other helpful features for a selection of Kosmos games. Available on iOS and Android devices,

This is such a great sleepover game for tweens and teens. If you like challenging games and to witness your older child’s level of problem solving the family game nights will surely be fun and challenged with any of the EXIT The Game sets. Available from Thames & Kosmos as well as retailers such as Amazon.
