Summer has officially commenced! Yesterday was the Summer Solstice or the LONGEST day of the year! I was speaking with the team and was discussing games that are the BEST to play during the summer and wanted to share them with you!
The Secret of Shadow Ranch
Starting off STRONG is a fan favorite – The Secret of Shadow Ranch! From vegetable picking to staring into the dreamy eyes of Dave Gregory, this game is a perfect vibe for the summer! BUT MAKE SURE THOSE VEGETABLES ARE RIPE! If you’ve played this game, I think I can say with confidence we have all been personally victimized by Shorty whether he is yelling at us about vegetables or his yodeling skills. Either way, this game is SO fun to play to kick off the summer!
The Creature of Kapu Cave
Next up on our list is an entirely different and more beachy summer vibe – The Creature of Kapu Cave. I mean .. who doesn’t love Big Island Mike?! This game is my go-to during the summer because I love looking for sea shells, making snow cones and of course everyone’s favorite, FRASS SORTING (kidding)! But seriously, this game is a great reminder of how fun the beach can be! On top of what I already mentioned, this game has a great mystery and has it all – snorkeling, the Hardy Boys, and again… BIG ISLAND MIKE (his back must hurt from CARRYING this game to being one of the best summer games)! I recommend this game for anyone who is wanting to feel as if they are sitting on the beach, just relaxing, and of course, still solving a GREAT mystery!
Danger on Deception Island
I know I have seen this game on plenty of tier charts you’ve made about which games to play during the summer, and it is known for also being one of Indy’s favorites – Danger on Deception Island! I only have fond memories of this game as it is so fun, mysterious, and constantly keeps you on your toes! This game takes ‘boat life’ to a whole new level and teaches you so much about marine biology! I recommend this one for someone wanting a classic adventure to stumble upon and don’t forget… WHALES RULE!
The Haunted Carousel
Among the many other GREAT summer mysteries Nancy has solved, the final one I will mention here is The Haunted Carousel! If you ever went to carnivals or county fairs during the summertime, this game is going to be PERFECT to give you all the nostalgia and remind you of those fun times. From carnival games to ice cream, this game is so fun for the summer and does such a great job at immersing you in the spooky amusement park mystery!
I know there are many more games that are the best to play during the summer, so comment down below what games you also LOVE to play during this season! I WANNA KNOW! I love to see the charts you all make online about the games you play throughout the different times of the year so I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
