Second-Chance Giveaway on December 11, 2016 - Nefarious: The Mad Scientist Game

Last month I reviewed and gave away 21 things ranging from books, to games to American Girl WellieWisher dolls and Cross pens - lots of fun things! When I have a giveaway - which I do all year long - I give the winner a full week to get their address to me, so I can have their prize sent to them. If someone does not do this in the week they have to do so, then I hold a second-chance giveaway - but with my second-chance giveaways, I only post the giveaway for two days, so if you want to enter this drawing, do not delay! Today I'm announcing a second-chance giveaway for a fun new game from USAopoly - Nefarious: The Mad Scientist Game

When I was a child there were a couple things we could always know we would receive for Christmas . . . books, clothes and at least one board game. Yes, this was "pre-electronic games", but board games were always something we received for Christmas . . . at least for those years we were in elementary school. Board games were a good way to get us playing together as a family . . . they still are today; even with the popularity of electronic games.

So, today I'm very happy to share with you a new board game from USAopoly, which they sent me for review, and to announce another giveaway!

Nefarious: The Mad Scientist Game!
Made by - USAopoly
Ages - 13+
For 2-6 players

Favorite Features -
  • Strategy game, so while it is fun, it encourages children (and adults) to think, strategize and use their brains!
  • Twist cards change game play which means no two games are exactly the same!
  • Not difficult to learn, but fun to play.
  • Would make a fun family gift if your family and other families exchange gifts at Christmas.
USAopoly says; "Nefarious The Mad Scientist game is a strategy game by Donald X. Vaccarino. You are a mad scientist attempting to destroy the world. To do so, you must build terrifying inventions which require research, hard work, and espionage. Unfortunately for you, other mad scientists are trying to steal your evil glory by destroying the world first. Overtake your rivals and become the most notorious mad scientist in history!"

I think this game would be great fun for older children and their parents to play together . . . after all, who doesn't enjoy the opportunity to be a mad scientist who creates inventions which allow you to take over the world!!!! I'm very happy to say, USAopoly didn't just send one for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away on December 11, 2016 (USA only)! If you live in the USA, are over the age of 18 and want to enter the giveaway for the Nefarious: The Mad Scientist Game!please comment below to let me know a board game you enjoy playing with your grandchildren/children - the boys love Sorry and Monopoly - oldies, but goodies for any generation!
