    1. Hello 👋 Julie! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! That game is something my 15 yo son made! 😲🥰😄 He’s testing it out on his siblings. We did get a lot of games for Christmas and I think they like Love Letter and Root!


      1. I love that he made his own game! So fun! Our favorite game we got is Buildzi. Fun for everyone! I will look up the one you mentioned as well! Blessings on your New Year! I am excited to see your reading list as well! Assuming you are doing one, that is!
