Get your Game on with The Purple Cow
I live in a close-knit family. We enjoy each other’s company despite our ages. At least once a month, the majority of the family gets together for some reason or another for the entire day. It is during these times that we have an opportunity to catch up on the happenings of each family, partake in a meal or two and merely relax and have fun by playing games. These are the days that I enjoy tremendously, but living so far away from the rest of the family, I miss out on these special times. However, that is about to change as I am moving back to my home state within the next couple of months. So, once again I can participate in these get-togethers. One of the activities that I miss most is playing games with my siblings, whether it is a card or board game. Granted we are on the older side, but still young enough to participate. The games are nonetheless very entertaining.
Thank you, The Purple Cow, for providing me with samples of Doodle a Droodle and 60-Seconds, What’s Your Story games for the purpose of this review.
While The Purple Cow has been around for almost 20 years, it is a fairly new name to myself, since my husband and I played very little games for the past several years. Can you relate to having lead a sheltered life for a while and are not familiar with The Purple Cow? Let me introduce you. A description of the company includes that it was founded in 2000 in Australia. The Purple Cow is a game designer, developer and manufacturer. These days, the company operates with two Headquarters: MD, USA and Caesarea, Israel, with their central warehouse based in China and shipping their games to over 30 countries worldwide.
While so many of the games that I have played in the past have been the old stand-by ones that have been around for years and years, I do enjoy playing a new and challenging game. Thankfully, I can now obtain these types games from The Purple Cow.

You have to think fast to play this game, but it is definitely exciting. You only have 60 seconds to view the face card on one of the five piles that you create: Hero, Place Target, Obstacle, and Strength. Then, you have 60 seconds to create your story that applies to the displayed theme cards. Each player then taking turns, reveals their story. It is quite amusing to hear some of the creations that other players compose.

This game allows you to expand your imagination. There are 108 droodle cards in total to create an endless supply of your drawing masterpieces.
In addition to these two great games I reviewed, The Purple Cow has an entire line of games for your enjoyment, including games of science, travel, educational, card games, activity, puzzles, as well as magnetic games. The games range in a variety of age groups. I especially like the travel games which are perfect to occupy the time of the young ones while on-the-go. If you have ever traveled in a car with your child, you will understand what I am referring to. In addition, some of the magnetic games are stored in a tin case, which mom will appreciate.
Broaden your horizons, flare your curiosity, and most importantly, relax and have FUN, FUN, FUN with the various games from The Purple Cow. As for myself, I look forward to purchasing many more of The Purple Cow games. How about yourself?
