Family Game Night Gift Ideas and Pie Face Review #PlayLikeHasbro

Pie Face game FINALWe’re just days away from the Christmas holidays and Santa’s elves are hard at work finishing up all of the last minute gifts! If you’re like me, you’re likely checking that list twice and looking for a few more ideas to put under the tree.

Games are always a big hit at our house, whether they are video games or board games. This year, I’ve heard non-stop about Pie Face, so much so that we gave it as a birthday party gift before even playing it ourselves!

We were given the chance to check this fun game out and my boys have declared it a favorite! The premise is simple. You spin a spinner, then put your face into a frame, click the handles the designated number of times and wait to see if you end up with a face full of pie!

Want to see my kids get hit in the face? Enjoy!
