10 Essentials Card Game – Based on the Boy Scouting Principles!

Be Prepared!

10 Essentials: Its best to know before you GO!

Welcome to the wild! 10 Essentials is a fun, fast-paced card game that is based on the experience of backcountry hiking and the Boy Scout Principle of Being Prepared. While playing you will learn the basic 10 Essentials you need to survive in the wild and the dangers they negate. Have fun playing Dangers on opponents, protecting yourself with Essential Items and accumulating Miles, Scenic and Wildlife cards.


10 Dangers

Dangers lurk throughout the card game! You have the ability to place dangers on your opponents and stagnate their progress.  They include things like Hypothermia, Dehydration and Dark.

10 Essentials

You can negate danger placed by opponents with the Essential Item needed.  Water protects you from Dehydration.  You need a Shelter if someone places a storm on you.  Be prepared for the dangers!

Scoring Points

Points can be gained by playing Wildlife Cards (like Bears or Wolves), Playing Miles (3-10 miles) or Scenic Points.  The first one to gain 50 points wins!

This simple game will fuel friendly competition and learning in families, hiking friends and scouts!

Enjoy the trail!

 Katrina and Rob tried this game out at ASTRA back in May 2017 and were quickly impressed. It’s face-paced, fun for the whole family and reminded them both of their scouting days. Rob reached Eagle Scout and Katrina earned her Silver Leader award and both loved camping, so this game caught their eye immediately. Even if you aren’t an outdoor lover, you will love this quick 30 minute game for 2-4 players, ages 6+!

The Holidays at Family Fun Hobbies!

Family Fun Hobbies is gearing up for the Holidays and you don’t want to miss out!

It’s time to pull out your calendar (paper or app) and mark some important dates down. Go ahead, go get them, we’ll wait.

1.  Starting today, you and your loved ones can each fill out a Holiday Wish List for us to keep on file. You can do this by filling one out in the store or printing this one out and bringing it in. You will provide us a list of people who would like to come in and shop for you. We’ll contact them, and when they shop at Family Fun Hobbies from December 1 – 12, 2017 they’ll get 15% off everything listed on your Wish List! Seriously, this couldn’t be any easier. You are picking out what you want, you are encouraging friends and family to #shopsmall this season, and they can get it all done in one spot. It’s a win-win!

Print this out and bring it in for us to keep on file for your friends and family!

 

2.  Our World Famous Holiday Gift Envelopes are returning! We’ve done them every year since we opened, and you ask for them every year. Never fear, they are back again!

3.  We are closed for Thanksgiving.

4. Black Friday we have normal hours, but keep your eye out for something special. You just never know, frankly we don’t know, but hey, it’s Black Friday.

5. Small Business Saturday is November 25th. Come #shopsmall at your favorite hobby store, visit with Santa from 6 to 8 pm for free pictures, join in our Board Game night that night and take advantage of our extra staff on hand to get help filling out your Holiday Wish List.

6. We are once again proud to be a Toys for Tots drop off location. Our box is already at the front of the store and is filling quickly. Bring in a new, unwrapped toy or buy something here and we’ll give you 20% on that item. Or round up your purchase at the register and we’ll buy/donate directly to Toys for Tots. Last year we donated 6 boxes of toys and over $680! We can do even better this year!

7.  Holiday Vendor Boutique – Sunday November 26th Family Fun Hobbies is staying open late! From 7 to 9 PM come get some extra shopping done with us along with six Vendors, Christmas Music and more!

8. More things are coming, but the Holidays are all about surprises and gifts right? We aren’t going to spoil them all yet. Don’t go hunting for our “secret hiding spot” either, we don’t have one. It’s all locked in a vault which only we and Santa know the combination to, so save your energy and just keep checking back for more information to come!

 

Finally, and most importantly, November 27th we are celebrating our 8th anniversary all thanks to each of you! Each day we are grateful for what we do and for the smiles you bring to our faces and hearts. Thank you for joining us on this amazing journey.

Where is Maccabee?

Maccabee Hanukkah Gift SMaccabee has informed us that he’s ready to celebrate Hanukkah at Family Fun Hobbies!

Starting the first day of Hanukkah, Dec 24th, our Maccabee is going to be roaming the store to check out our products, demo a few games, build puzzles, play D&D…who knows really. He is super excited though, and wants YOU to join in the fun.

Each day (except the 25th when the store is closed) you will find Maccabee in a new location. Tell a staff member where you found him and post to that days’ Where’s Maccabee? post “I found Maccabee”! and you will be entered into a raffle for a $25 Family Fun Hobbies Gift Card. You can enter once each day. Since we are closed the 25th, we will extend our 8th day to 31st, so you could have 8 entries if you come every day!

Remember, you must tell a staff member and you must post “I found Maccabee” to be entered. We will have a sign in sheet at the register to track that you’ve found him.

We will post pics of where he was at the end of each day on our Facebook Page!
