Consumer Critique: Endless Games

Recent polls conducted by General Nutrition Centers, Quicken, and others shows that more than 50% of Americans vow to appreciate loved ones and spend more time with family and friends this year. Two great options include Camera Roll or Name 5 by Endless Games!
Camera Roll~
The  iPhone is one of the most popular games in the world, but how often do people look at those pictures? Do you really know what you have on your camera roll? Do you have a snapshot from a BIRTHDAY PARTY? How about a picture from your VACATION? Maybe now you’ll find a reason to show off that SUNSET pic you took 6 months ago! You have 30 seconds to find it. Every player is involved in every round! Just find a photo to match the description on the card – which means some images could be left to your interpretation! Will YOUR picture best fit the card description? Will you have the winning Camera Roll?
Name 5 ~
Name 5 is the cool new party game that asks the easy questions most people know the answers to. Sure you know one Tom Hanks movie, one Tina Turner song…Maybe even two…But can you name 5?  This game will have players picking their brains to Name 5.  

I had a chance to review both games, which are a ton of fun to play. Camera Roll does require a little bit of warning to players, or modification of rules - sometimes I periodically delete pictures off of my phone, so instead we modified to allow Facebook pictures too.

Name 5 was also a lot of fun. I was surprised how hard it was sometimes to actually get to that fifth thing on the list. I often got to four and had to think hard to get that extra one!

Both are family-friendly games, although best suited for teens and adults, just because little kids often won't have the experience for Name 5 or a phone. But with some creativity, kids can be included too!
