Happy November everybody! I feel like this is the real start of the holiday season, so it’s a good time to check in with CheckedTwice. It’s also a great time to share CheckedTwice with a friend!

And it’s also the time when the leaves are really changing. Even here in Houston we’re starting to see spots of color in the trees here and there in between the green live oaks and green loblolly pines.

The colors though reminded me of one of my favorite new games: Coloretto.

coloretto : family card game

Coloretto is a card game that’s quick to learn and that takes less than 30 minutes to play. It’s a great family game and you can play with 2-5 players. And it’s cheap enough on Amazon to make a great stocking stuffer.

Here’s the blurb from BoardGameGeek:

Game play in Coloretto is simple: Either draw a card to play to a row, or take a row of cards to add them to your collection. A row can have at most three cards, so at some point everyone is forced to take a row. Once all the rows have been claimed, players start a new round, drawing or taking once again.

What are you trying to do with these cards? Collect huge sets – but only in three colors as every color beyond the third will cost you points.

If it sounds a bit complicated, you’ll try it once, and quickly get the hang of it. So to sum up:

  • It’s easy to learn
  • It’s fun to play
  • It’s great for the whole family
  • And it’s cheap!
Great game. Great gift!
