Convention Envy

This week in Indianapolis, thousands of board game players, designers and publishers are gathering for the annual Gen Con. I won’t lie. I want to be there even though I cannot stand crowds. There are so many new games on the brink of coming out, or just came out, that I’d love to see them and try them. My budget and lack of storage space thank me for staying home.

I have been learning how to play new games on my iPad. So far this week I have played Ganz Schön Clever, Latice and Roll For It!. I have found all three games to be lots of fun and I look forward to having the physical copies so that I can teach Truck how to play.

I will be following Gen Con on Twitter and also following GenCan’t, a feed for those of us that can’t make it but still want some convention-like fun. More info, as well as a link to the two winning Print and Play card games from their contest sponsored by Button Shy, you can head here.

Welcome to Ninja Truck Reviews!

Welcome to our new site! We’re happy to have you here with us!

Let me introduce how “we” are. We are a homeschooling and gameschooling family of 4 in Northeastern Ohio. Truck is 6 and Ninja will be 4 in less than a few weeks. I am known as NinjaTruck’s Mom. I used to have the identity of ScrappyChiq (I still do,) but I spend my days these days as Mom. NinjaTruck’s Dad is here too. 

We have a unique family, not unlike any other family out there. Ninja is currently fighting Acute Lympoblasic Leukemia and will complete treatment in 2019. He’s also awesome because he rocks a 3rd 21st chromosome. As he slowly grows, we are adding him into our homeschooling mix where and when we can. Truck loves to play games, build things with Legos and watch YouTube. He aspires to be a YouTuber one day.

We plan to use this site to share our reviews of games we are playing-both current and upcoming, and how they fit in to our homeschool/gameschooling life. We will also let you know about other things that we use around here that are helpful to our daily homeschooling life.

Thank you for joining us-we hope you enjoy your stay!
