Playing video games is a great way to improve your multitasking and problem-solving skills, but it’s normal to change up your entertainment routine every once in a while. Why not take it old-school and pull out some board games? While some of us ditched board games when we were kids, they’re actually a great way to enrich our lives while learning new things at the same time. They’ll also give you a chance to bond with the family members or friends who you’re playing with. At GameTruck Jacksonville, we love all kinds of games. Here are our top four board games that are actually educational.
When you’re playing Clue, you’re required to use your best detective skills.What you may not realize is that the game actually helps you with logic and reasoning. Because you form theories about what happened and who’s guilty, you’re learning how to better use deductive reasoning.
Depending on your patience levels, Monopoly may be your idea of a fun night or sound like a nightmare. Regardless of whether you love a game famous for feeling like it’ll never end, you’ll still benefit from playing. When you’re playing Monopoly, you’re using real-world skills, like knowing the value of money and investing it wisely.
Boggle is similar to Scrabble because it involves vocabulary skills. However, Boggle also teaches you how to think quickly in stressful situations because you only have three minutes to come up with as many words as you can. Anyone who has held a high-pressure job can tell you the benefits of working well under stress.
Whether you’re a person of a few words or have an encyclopedic knowledge of the English language, Scrabble is a great game to play. No matter how many words you already know, you’ll leave the game with a larger vocabulary than you started with. Your fellow players might play obscure words in hopes of winning it all, but everyone benefits from the game.
We hope that you have fun digging out some old board games and becoming smarter in the process. You can host the ultimate game night by booking GameTruck Jacksonville for a mobile video gaming party. Our one-of-a-kind events allow everyone who attends to have an unforgettable time. Give us a call today at 866-253-3191 or click here for a free quote.
We’re back and with exciting Mario news!
Need new ideas for children’s parties? With the Super Mario Odyssey release, no need to look any further! It’s too much fun to put it down! What is this game about you ask? Is it Princess Peach? Yup, you guessed it! Princess Peach managed to get nabbed again! With each stage, you make your way through mazes and new opponents. We had a ton of fun “researching” this game! You can find it on Amazon, Ebay, Best Buy, and GameStop!
Remember to explore the other challenges that could be hidden at these levels. This game has some similarities to the original Mario games but have way more mini levels! Even though there are a bunch of hidden challenges, one of the hardest parts of this game is its non-stop madness! Make sure to check out this game when looking for new birthday games!
Mario got a new companion in this installment: Cappy. With the help of Cappy, you can turn into all kinds of animals and even the walking bombs! Can you turn into a giant stack of Goombas? YUP!
Do you remember when double jumping was a revolutionary thing? We do too which is why we are excited to play this new game which features a triple jump!
Have a different gameplay style?
With this game, you can play your way! Jump on every Goomba you see or avoid all the walking bombs, it’s up to you! If you liked the Zelda games, then you’ll love this one with your ability to explore different stages! We were also happy with this Assassins Creed like gameplay style. It also reminds us of the old Spiderman games as Mario roams through the city bouncing on cars and people’s heads.
Finished the game?
There are alternate endings! With 120 “Moons” which are pretty much the equivalent of harder to collect coins, you can beat the game but if you collect 500 Moons, you get to experience the real ending! Keep in mind, 500 is a lot of Moons when the game only has 830 of them!
Generally, when you beat a game, it gets dull. Well not with this one! When you beat this game, the challenges get even harder! This game introducing all new ideas and we love them! They incorporate these ideas intuitively and with child gameplay in mind. In this game, you can collect a bundle of Moons and it is a bundle of fun.

1. Wii Fit
Wii Fit was introduced a decade ago, and it’s still one of the most popular video games on the market. Players can choose from more than 40 activities, and there are unique options like snowboarding, yoga, and tennis. Some of the high-intensity activities like island running burn 165 calories per 30-minute session.
While GameTruck Los Angeles specializes in video game parties, we also offer laser tag parties for up to 12 people. Your party guests will get to play laser tag wherever you please––whether it’s a park, playground or backyard. LaserTag will keep you entertained and engaged, and you’ll burn calories while playing.

You don’t need to be a dance expert to have fun playing this game. All that’s required is a willingness to try new dance moves and groove to your favorite songs. Just Dance can be played with your friends or alone, and you’re tasked with mimicking the dance moves you see on-screen.
