4 Games for Entertaining Kids During the Hot Arkansas Summer Days:


Indoor Games to Try #1 – Star Wars Destiny: Awakening Boosters

Check out the new Star Wars Destiny: Awakening Booster pack!

Got a Star Wars fan in your family? We’ve got just the booster pack for you to add to your Star Wars: Destiny collection. Just like any collectible card battle game, Star Wars: Destiny is played with only two players. The game is recommended for players ages 10 and up. Each battle should only take about 30 minutes.

Star Wars: Destiny features characters, players and themes from the entire Star Wars saga. This is a great game for parents to revisit their Star Wars fan phase and spend time with their teenage kids that are in the midst of the current Star Wars craze.

This booster pack includes 5 cards and 1 die.

Indoor Games to Try #2 – Arena: For the Gods

Ready for a fight to the death as a mythological hero? Who says staying indoors, avoiding the heat and humidity from the Arkansas summer can’t be epic.

In Arena: For the Gods each player is a hero from different mythologies. It’s a fight to the death. Or rather, a fight to see who can gain the most health points before the first person dies. The players and their weapons are versatile and the board can be changed based on how many players there are.

This game is designed to be played by 2 to 6 players ages 8 and up. The average time it takes to play a round of Arena: For the Gods is about 40 minutes.

Indoor Games to Try #3 – Deluxe Illuminati

“It’s too hot to play outside. Instead, let’s take over the world using whatever means necessary.”

Deluxe Illuminati is a popular game where the winner must take over the world using anything from government agencies to telephone companies. How will your illuminati take over the world?

This game is designed for two to eight players ages 12 and up. A round of Deluxe Illuminati can take 1 to 2 hours. Plenty of time for world domination.
