Featured Games at Pop’s Culture Shoppe

New games, co-op games & and games you can play over Zoom!


by Amiee Jones - July 22, 2020

Games are a great way to connect with loved ones, and engage with one another! Most of us have our tried-and-true favorites for game night, but it’s always fun to switch in up. Pop’s Culture Shoppe has more than enough options to get some fresh fun and excitement in to your home. Julian Stam shared just a few options with us during our last visit!

If mathematical puzzles are up your alley, check out “Buildzi”. With Tetris-like pieces and bright colors, this challenging game can be played multiple ways!

Or, maybe there are younger kids in your home who enjoy sinking in to a game with a plot behind it. Julian shared “SOS Dino”, where the mission is to help the adorable dinosaurs save their prehistoric eggs before the spreading lava gets to them. This is just one example of the widely popular “Cooperative Games” genre. The point of these types of games is for the group to work together to defeat the game, or execute the goal. This approach encourages communication between players to brainstorm the most efficient and effective strategy.

The next game in Julian’s mini-tour was “Yam-Slam”, and it very closely resembles the classic game “Yahtzee”. “I brought this out as an example of a game you could even play during a Zoom session,” explained Julian. He went on to outline that the parties on the other side of the call could direct the person who physically had the game as to which dice to roll and what type of score they were trying to achieve (i.e. full house, straight, 4 of a kind, etc.) The other distinguishing characteristic of “Yam-Slam” is that the players gather score chips.

Perhaps your crew enjoys trivia based games. For this itch, Julian suggests “Half Truth” which provides cards with categories labeled at the top. Underneath each category there are 6 answers: 3 are correct and 3 are false. The players can then bet on which answers they think apply to the category title, making for an interactive and competitive exchange.

Another popular game category includes those with the element of improvisation and surprise, such as “Pictionary” or “Charades”. For this type, Julian introduced a new game called “Upside Draw”. This action-oriented game has the twist of one person drawing the clue while another holds the pad.

Of course the wonderful variety of games Julian shared with us was just a small representation of all the fun and excitement available for you at Pop’s Culture Shoppe. During this time when we have less on our social calendars, Pop’s offers countless options to create joyful pastimes and family memories!
