Christmas Loot – LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy Light Cycles

Standard

One of my surprise gifts, from Tabitha, was the LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy Light Cycle set.

The build was simple and the cycles are quite solid. I love the unique helmets and identity discs. Amazon has LED lighting kits for the set. I’m debating on whether to pick one up.

Wyatt also got me a LEGO Ferrari that I need to put together. Pictures soon!

Did you get any LEGO for Christmas? Let me know in the comments below.

Christmas Loot – New Board Games

Standard

Our family is a family of first borns. We are all highly competitive with each other. This past year, I made a concentrated effort to introduce cooperative board games to our family game time. We’ve dove into:

  • Castle Panic
  • Forbidden Island

Both games are built around the idea of playing together, combining tactical decisions/special character moves in order to win. We’ve enjoyed these cooperative experiences, working as a team to beat the board.

For Christmas, I was gifted:

  • Pandemic
  • Jaws
  • The Game

I can’t wait to bring these games to the table. I’ll let ya’ll know how they each play. I’m curious to see if we stay alive going up against Jaws; also curious to see if we, Tabitha and I, can overcome the bad first impression we had of Pandemic (had someone quarterback us through a game).

How about you? Did you get any board games for Christmas?
