Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

Cluedo, Mysteries of Peking: developing a logical mind.

I love when an air of mystery and reflection surrounds me…

That's what's great about investigation games or role-playing games!

We can integrate an atmosphere to make the game even more addictive.

A werewolf with good background music and a good playmaker is great!

I really like to incorporate an air of mystery into all my werewolf games, for example.

My players appreciate it and ask for more and I love being able to offer them the game this way!

For logic and investigation games like Cluedo or

The mysteries of Peking, we begin to look for some leads and, by deduction, solve investigations by following clues.

The competitive side with other players is quite stimulating. You learn to have to think faster and more efficiently than others if you want to hope to win.

We develop a logical mind that then makes us want to test much more complex games.

We start with simpler games, then we move on to more complicated games, to end up with expert games.

And then developing a logical mind is always useful in everyday life!

Good day and good game ;)

Puzzle: my insoluble disinterest.

I like a wide variety of board games, but I have to admit that puzzles are the exception that proves the rule for me.

A game logic that is completely beyond me, whereas, according to friends, they are much less complicated than the expert games we play together...

I have no idea why I can't grasp the logic of the puzzles, but it won't.

After all, we can't love everything and be interested in everything around us.

You could easily beat me at rubik's kub for example.

The only time I managed to make it complete as a child was because I had peeled off the labels and reattached them in the correct order afterwards… ^^

We agree that it doesn't matter. ;)

However, I like games that have a high demand for logic and thinking.

 I love the simplicity as well as the complexity of a game, because it opens up to different game mechanics.

I like when the games are very difficult and you have to rack your brains to know which strategy will be effective.

The puzzles will live up to their names as far as I'm concerned.

Good day and good game ;)

Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

Trivial pursuit: to develop one's knowledge and cultivate oneself.

One of the general knowledge games that marked my childhood is Trivial Pursuit.

The Genius version allowed me to play with my older cousins.

It started with the desire to want to play the same games as my cousins, then it continued with the desire to discover and learn new things.

With well-known categories such as cinema, heritage, music, history, geography, etc., I loved discovering new things while playing.

As a team with one of my cousins ​​ten years older than me, we complemented each other according to the areas of the questions.

But beyond that, we were all playing together and laughing as we learned.

Especially since the Trivial Pursuit is now adapted in several versions and themes, which allows you to play a variety of general knowledge.

Since I was little, I have always been very curious and I have always liked to learn things, so a game that combined play and knowledge was a great discovery for me.

Some general knowledge games now sound much more dynamic and sometimes offer the addition of challenges to set the mood a little more.

What we did to spice up the game with my cousins ​​was to add pledges and constraints or advantages and special points through various challenges.

This could make games of general knowledge just so laughable and unforgettable!

Good day and good game ;)

Yu Gi Oh: managing combos, effective and destructive strategies.

Among all these games that I played a lot, there are card games such as heros dei, magic or even yu gi oh.

Less interested in magic and moderately in hero dei, my teenage preference was for Yu gi oh!

I adhered much more to this universe than those of magic and heros dei.

I loved the fact that we could start from small cards to make super powerful combos!

When I came across the red-eyed black dragon or even alpha the master of beasts or other special or rare cards, I was super happy.

I remember creating all kinds of effective and destructive strategies that allowed me to win outright against other players.

Even when I played again 15 years after quitting with a client, I managed to do a combo that won me in the second round.

I was as surprised as my client, because I thought that in 15 years that I had not played there, I would be rusty...

There is always a way to find a combo to counter his opponent's attacks or to return his attacks to him.

Sometimes, you even have to sacrifice a little to protect yourself and react to win the game or gain experience.

 Good day and good game ;)

King Arthur, Atmosfear: challenge the game and surpass yourself.

I've played a lot of different games since I was young and I keep discovering new ones every day.

Because yes, the play experience is diverse and varied now thanks to talented authors, illustrators and creators.

When we talk about electronic games, it is technology that is at the service of the excellence of a board game.

I am thinking in particular of games like King Arthur or Atmosfear.

King Arthur which offers quests activated when our characters go to the place of its realization.

Atmosfear, where this game with a VHS tape (yes me too, I got old talking about it ^^) allowed to have ambient noises and the rest of the puzzles in a mysterious universe…

These games that are magnified by technology and making this type of game just unmissable and unforgettable!

Yes, these are games from the 80s-90s!

These games where you play against the game and where you have to try to brainstorm to try to win!

These games whose descendants could be these games guided by an application and where you have to solve an investigation or run away!

The 80s and 90s marked authors and inspired more modern games.

Good day and good game ;)

Mille Borne: managing your game and dirty tricks.

The Mille bornes is one of the other games that marked my childhood.

Progressing over the limits and hazards that we are asked throughout the game, taught me very young to manage the frustration linked to the difficulty.

Because yes, the dirty tricks can be numerous to the thousand limits, that's why we love or hate this kind of games in general...^^

You have to manage your game well to move forward without letting others progress too much to try to prevent them from winning.

A red light, a punctured wheel, an accident, or a lack of gas can slow you down for a while...

You can also curb the enthusiasm of other players thanks to speed limits.

The dirty tricks limit you for a moment, but with the right assets, you always manage to get back on your way.

And then, for those who play the game, the difficulties are part of the game and then make us progress faster to the next mile!

The dirty tricks, if you don't know how to manage your cards in hand, always end up leaving you on the sidelines.

I remain determined to share the playful world with you, because my driving force is these moments that we share!

Good day and good game ;)

Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

Uno: the American 8 that reveals personalities!

Uno was one of the games that marked my gaming life among many others.

The uno always allows you to have a good time no matter who you play with.

Because the Uno is simple to handle and easier to access than the American 8.

No need to know the values ​​and special effects of the cards to play, because everything is noted on them.

The American 8 is already a very good classic, but the uno has given it a more generic dimension by making it accessible to everyone.

Easy to play, the uno allows you to see the personality of the players around the table.

Some will struggle to land a +2 or +4 on players around them, while others will feel less remorse. :)

Within the framework of the game everything is possible, because it remains only a game.

You have to take it a little seriously but not too seriously to have fun together.

As Vladimir Jankélévith says, “Eliminate one of the two opposites, play or seriousness, and adventure ceases to be adventurous”.

Since I love to live this adventure with you, I will continue to seriously surprise you with new things.

Some players turn out to be accomplices, teasers, good or bad players, but above all motivated players!

The Uno with its simplicity, allows moments of sharing often hectic, but always stimulating!

Good day and good game ;)

Super challenges: agility, dexterity, strategy.

In 1986, the Super Challenges game appeared.

I got to know him long after, because my cousins ​​gave me their board games when they no longer wanted them.

I played there a lot with them while my uncle came to tease us and encourage us around the endless games we were playing.

Super Challenges is a board game where you have to perform various successive challenges such as the mini-bowling strike, knock down the pins with an object hanging from the rope or even puzzles and logic challenges.

As a child, I really liked the diversity of challenges that this game offered.

 To initiate and play with children, it is a very good game.

 It allows you to test your agility, dexterity and strategy.

Perhaps the ancestor of many of our modern board games. :)

 For me, Super Challenges cultivated my curious side about all kinds of games from an early age.

I was then very inclined to discover various and varied games, which from a very young age made me a curious player.

I tested flop, good games and unforgettable games!

Curious player, I am always able now to discover new playful nuggets!

The playful world is full of discoveries, good or bad, but always interesting.

And then, in the game world or in life in general, it takes everything to make a world!

 In any case, being a curious player allows me to share with you my passion for the game and that's pretty good. ;)

 Good day and good game ;)

Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

La coinche: managing your game and that of others.

A variant of belote, the coinche allows you to play combos a little more strategically via a success contract.

With his or her playing partner, communicate in a subtle way to achieve the best combos and score the most points possible.

Communication then has a central place to try to create the maximum number of combos without the value of the trump or even better, in the value of the trump to score even more points.

Already atypical in adolescence, with my clique of friends, we played coinche and werewolf among many other board games.

At a time when other teenagers were playing the console, we were playing it too, but not only…

When we helped and spent time with the elderly people in the neighborhood whom we helped on a daily basis, we played belote and coinche with them…

Andrée, 96, was my first coinche partner when I was 12.

She had been a primary school teacher and followed the rules to the letter. So I was able to learn coinche on a good basis.

It was Andrée who allowed me to teach it to other friends who also wanted to discover this game.

See, it is not only a question of having the right cards in hand, it is above all necessary to know how to use them.

Good day and good game ;)

Risk: beginning of diplomacy, or not…

I started playing Risk around 6 years old with a homemade version.

A school planisphere as a board, dice recovered from other games at home, hand-made pawns with cardboard or wood and a whiteboard marker to schematize the conquered territories...

Risk, I had seen it on television and so I created my version to play with my friends on the playground.

 For the table, a cut tree trunk and gym balls as chairs.

Risk is a way to learn the game strategy of conquest of territory and not to spoil anything by the way, we learned by playing countries and capitals. :)

So, is Risk a game of diplomacy?

Child, I believed it, adult, I doubt it…^^

We create alliances sometimes, but these same alliances can end up turning against us.

Because yes, our ultimate goal, to all players, is to win the most territories anyway...

So, we can inadvertently have to conquer a territory and pass on that of an ally... But hey, it's only in the pure chance of the game...^^

As part of the game, everything is allowed as long as we follow the rules of the game. ;)

Risk allows you to think about how to conquer territories without forgetting to keep those you already have.

It's a bit like the challenge of a daily business...

Invite new customers to join the fun adventure and continue to satisfy loyal customers.

You are important to me, and I promise, I won't take any Risks and will remain a diplomat to meet this daily challenge! ;)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

Chess: between strategy and instinct.

A memory of chess that has marked me the most are the times when I failed to win.

 When you win, you're happy, but you miss the thrill of difficulty.

Because if, as in life, a game of chess goes by too peacefully, you could end up getting bored.

Chess teaches us to challenge our strategies and make them evolve with the challenges we face.

Because failures are an integral part of our successes.

We can mostly encounter more failures than successes, but we always end up overcoming the difficulties.

Of course we can come across players who cheat and try to break the rules of the game...

So at this time, it is good to move the piece that we had planned aside to be able to counteract this failure.

You can tell by the way everyone has their pawns, if they are playing tricks and going it alone.

And then some go up the towers, looking for a Tempo and find themselves facing a Castling.

 There are bad players, who will believe that they won because they knocked over the game board.

 These same players who will never learn from their failures, will not checkmate and with impossible successes.

Let them believe they are treading on the king, without any purpose since they do not know how to appropriate him wisely.

When we don't stick to our positions, we never remain subdued in the face of failures.

 Good day and good game ;)

Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

The battle: learn to overlap and enter into conflict.

My memory of the battle begins at 3 years old, when I played with my cousins.

No Batawaf or Batanimo at that time, but a good old deck of 32 or 54 cards would do.

In ascending order or by values ​​for Jacks, Queens, Kings, Aces and Jokers.

Whoever had the strongest card won both cards in play, or more when there was one battle or multiple battles.

A game of chance, the battle game allows you to gently learn about card games and the battle brings the concept of confrontation with the other player(s).

He gently learns to win and lose and to react to the risk factor of the cards in his hand.

Learning to play by following rules that put all players on an equal footing also allows young children to learn and then enjoy the games.

With the battle, we learn to confront two cards by their values, making win the strongest, but we can also lose stronger cards in the battles.

The setting of the game quite often makes it easier to manage the emotions linked to victory or defeat, because you can take revenge or even have a good time.

A game is sometimes like in life, as Philippe Le Guillou says “Life is a game. You have to know how to lose”.

But whatever happens, as Jack London puts it, “Life is not just about having the right cards in your hand; sometimes it's knowing how to play well with a bad game”.

Good day and good game ;)

I believe that together we can enjoy the playful world even more.

I am proud to be able to say that the store has contributed to developing the playful world in Vaison and its surroundings.

In Vaison now, thanks to the impetus of toy libraries, associations, companies and passionate players, we Play the Game!

Five years ago, the situation was not the same. A few players were playing among themselves and the game animations were running timidly.

Over the years, game associations and toy libraries have opened their doors and allowed a greater number of players to join the fun adventure.

Events such as the Cannes International Games Festival, Octogones in Lyon or even the Parthenay Games Festival, among others, contribute to this influence of the games.

In Vaison and its surroundings, I spared no effort to help promote the world of games on my modest scale as a small shop.

One of my great pride is to see new players joining the gaming world and getting involved with enthusiasm.

I will continue by your side the promotion of board games, games that bring us closer!

I am very happy to be proactive and to see new partnerships being established in the interest of the fun and intriguing world of board games.

Good day and good game ;)

Do not respond negatively to negativity.

The life of a business is not always rosy.

As soon as we try to try things, it is not always pleasant for some.

Afterwards, if we ask ourselves the question of knowing for whom and why we created, we know why we continue.

Because yes, we can't please everyone, that's obvious and so much the better!

As long as what I do is relevant to my clients and my players, then for me that is the most important thing.

What touched and hurt me via mean-spirited remarks at the start of the store, now only strengthens me even more.

This is what this former nice shopkeeper from Vaison had encouraged me to do, shield herself and ignore her.

Thank you for this very nice advice, because over time I understood and I continue to understand what you wanted to say. :)

Regarding the request for solidarity from a colleague who has soiled my business since it has existed, I just answer her this "No, thank you".

No conflicts for me, no dramas, no animosity.

When a dog barks at you, you're not going to bark back.

The same goes for the negativity that some people apply on a daily basis.

You are alone with your negativity, so good luck to you because it must be difficult to bear.

I am not a negative person, so bark, I will continue to be positive and believe in this for everyone who also believes in me and my store. :)

 Failures driving success.

 From an early age, I learned that not every failure was final when I played chess.

In everyday life, I missed a lot of things that allowed me to progress and improve.

 Because to fail is to succeed in fits and starts. A failure gives us experience and allows us to have experience.

And then failing is also proof that we have tried. The real failure is what you didn't try.

 I failed when I wanted to create certain animation times, which allowed me to better design the following animation times.

 I failed when I encoded pages of my site, even managing to make it overload and disappear momentarily…

But the following times, I did not start from nothing, but from the experience that these failures gave me.

A failure is only definitive if it is useless and does not teach us anything.

Sometimes our greatest failures contribute to creating our greatest successes afterwards!

 Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of the JJV Offs!

Let's talk about this passion for the game that drives me.

Born from my earliest childhood, the game has always been for me above all a way of sharing with other players.

Whether it was with my grandfather, when I started playing or now that I play with you on a daily basis; playing board games, for me, is above all about sharing.

Because beyond the fun that a game provides, sharing a moment with other players is a moment suspended in time, unique and irreplaceable.

We discover each person through their way of playing and interacting with others.

What is interesting is to see players discover themselves through the game, because it allows them to open up a little more to the other players around the table.

I particularly like when the games animations allow people who did not know each other to discover each other and to make acquaintances, or even better very often friends.

So do I drive my passion for games or does it drive me?

Good question…

One thing is sure, my passion for games allows me to share good times with you all and that is priceless!

Good day and good game ;)

Stay the course, experience at your service.

With great achievements already accomplished with you by my side, I do not intend to stop in my tracks.

When I look back 5 years, when I created the store, I intended to develop game animations that did not exist in Vaison.

Some immediately trusted me, seeking my experience in animation to energize their organizations.

I would also like to thank these first people and companies who believed in my game animation project from the start.

I would particularly mention Mac Donald de Saint Romain en Viennois and their kind recommendation to other companies and institutions after having tested the game animations. :)

Thank you also to the town halls and toy libraries for your trust for 5 years now, thank you Vaison, where we Play the Game. ;)

And thank you around Vaison and elsewhere where we also play the game. ;)

Thank you especially to you my customers and everyday players, who allow me to continue the fun adventure by your side. ;)

Thank you to the entertainment teams that I joined or managed, particularly my Italian-Maltese froufrous team (Thank you frou frou team, grazzie mille frou frou team) and especially the entertainment team with whom everything started and continues every christmas, I named team fada. ;)

I would like to thank Angie, Cece, Clairounette, Julie Gege, Marie M., Yaume tomette, Kit and Kat, Angél-hic, Laeti titia, Magic Dom Dom.

I would end up thanking my husband, his parents, my relatives and friends, who even if they may have had doubts continue to support me and believe in my store. :)

I'm happy to see that we haven't gone from 0 game animation in 2018, to a year of games in advance, toy libraries that flourish in Vaison and its surroundings, partnerships that I appreciate more than anything!

Great achievements, failures too, but always great human and enriching adventures thanks to all of you!

As Pascal Obispo says so well in his song "Giving is like receiving, but without realizing it".

I am happy to offer you playtime adapted to each of you, because you are all unique and that is what is magical.

It may not seem like much, but discovering you through games or talks allows me to enrich myself.

By playing with you or teaching you to play, I discover you as you are, all great in your own way.

I learn a lot of things thanks to you and I particularly appreciate that we can enrich each other by rubbing shoulders with each other.


My goal with the store is that we Play the Game in Vaison and I think we are not doing too badly. ;)

My happiness is hidden in the little things we share together.

Curious and passionate player, I like to unearth playful nuggets to be able to share them with you during playtime or make you discover them at the store.

Because sharing my passion for games with you enriches me as much as you do. You're not the only ones discovering things.

I really appreciate when you also make me discover games that have escaped my radar as a curious player. :)

Because yes, it must be said, with a year between 1000 and 1500 minimum games that come out, we humanly cannot know everything ^^.

With other passionate players, whether professional or avid gamers, we each play games that focus on our own interests.

We can thus discover even more novelties and make them discover to be able to make you discover always more playful novelties.

Because beyond just playing a board game, the moments we share together are all unique.

Because no player and no game is alike, the moments shared around board games are irreplaceable.


Whether I'm playing with other expert players, curious gamers, or beginners, I love sharing with you.

Introducing board games does not scare me, because every beginner player can also find a game that allows them to have fun with other players.

I also like to share very strategic games with my expert players! I also like games that beat you up ;)

Hey, as part of the game, we have the right! ;)

But through all this variety of games and possible games, what I appreciate above all is to share unique moments with you!

The moments shared with you, around a game, or services are my daily extras, so thank you!

Alone in the face of doubt, I stand up.

The life of an independent business can be quite random.

During the covid crisis, for example, I wondered if the store would be able to operate despite the closure and the restrictions first.

That's where you came in and where you were great, because even closed, you continued to trust me.

I was very lucky to have you, as you have allowed me during this time to keep the boat afloat through Click and Collect and shopping on the store site.

I had a lot of doubts, doubts that you swept away with your kindness and your loyalty to the store.

So, thank you very much for that!

And then being an independent shop means that I can only count on myself…

No branch or large group to back you up when times get tough.

Even if I was asked to take over as a franchise the suite of a large brand, my choice to be an independent boutique was carefully considered.

I didn't want to be able to just give you generic choices of board games, but also to be able to give you a range of indie publishers.

I have always had at heart, even in the face of difficulty, never to let go.

For what ?

Because sharing the best of the fun world has always been and will always be my driving force.

If something is difficult, it is not impossible!

I doubt, I sometimes succeed, I often make mistakes, but I always learn!

5 years of the store, thank you!

I remember the first game I sold at the store was a 6 that takes, the day after it opened to a lovely gentleman who is always at the playful rendezvous of the store. ;)

I remember my first outdoor activities for McDonald's in Saint Romain en Viennois, the first game festivals and activities in the store's toy libraries. ;)

Always listening to you is important to me.

Since I opened the store on June 25, 2018, I have done my best to constantly listen to you.

And this is not ready to change, because listening to you is better to guide you.

This requires daily benevolence during entertainment times, advice (I hope) wise and in accordance with your interests or desires for games of the moment.

Accompany you on a daily basis when sending and receiving parcels, for your physical and digital document services and to accommodate your luggage when you visit Vaison.

It is by listening to you that I make progress:

-my range of games so that it adapts better to you.

- my animations to adapt them to the particularity of each of you who participate.

-the site on which you find the online games with descriptive sheets and videos.

- information from the game world or current themes that I offer on the store's blog and social networks.

- my passion for the game by sharing it with you every day!

The life of a business is not only made up of ups, it is also made up of downs.

 When you set up your creative project, there is some doubt about the feasibility of your project.

We wonder if the project is viable in the long term and if the public will be there.

 When I launched my project to create the store in April 2018 in Vaison, I didn't know if customers would buy into it.

Quite simply because in 2018, the gaming world was not as developed as it is now in Vaison.

There was no game association or toy library to contribute to the dissemination of the playful world.

The various events that we go through with a company can comfort us in our idea or on the contrary plunge us even more into doubt.

 It's not always easy on a daily basis, but I think it was the hardships I went through in the store that allowed me to believe even more in my project every day.

 I am delighted today to see loyal customers and friendly players throughout the year.

 Whether you are customers from Vaison, the surrounding area, other regions or other countries, thank you all for sharing this daily life with me.

I am proud to be able to offer you fun nuggets on a daily basis and the moments we share are my most beautiful guest book, so thank you!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of the JJV Offs!

The game, an inestimable heritage!

We, as we have inherited our games from ancient civilizations, board games are passed down from generation to generation.

Grandparents who through play enjoy a good time with their children and grandchildren.

Parents who share a moment or a passion with their children around games.

We have always played board games with our loved ones and acquaintances to have a good time together.

Since the 80s and the rise of board games, we are lucky to have more and more games of different styles and difficulties to adapt to all players, children, novices, insiders or experts.

The professionalization of the gaming world has given free rein to the creativity of authors, illustrators, young and old.

Always good ideas to share and develop to make all types of players play.

Real professions behind magnificent playful nuggets!

And yes, the game world is serious because otherwise it's not game ;)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of the JJV Offs!

Unforgettable moments around board games!

I have the chance to work in a fun and attractive field all year round.

The hardest times are when I sacrifice myself to discover new games so that I can introduce you to them and share them with you afterwards.

Being forced to play to discover new games while having fun with friends and colleagues, it does not look like it but it is exhausting. ;)

Friends, colleagues of the moment during special events, I evolve in an environment where people are all a little crazy like me (you have to to play all these magnificent games ^^).

From one-off moments to moments that recur every year with fad teams, I am overwhelmed.

Great fun teams who are committed to spreading the fun world of board games everywhere we go.

Be careful, toy librarians and gamers of all kinds are on their way to torture you and make you discover fun nuggets throughout the year in France and elsewhere;)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of the JJV Offs!

Share a passion to make it even more alive!

The store is called Joue le Jeu Vaison, and it is not by chance.

All year round, I try to play the game and offer you fair prices.

Excluding the increase in distributors, the price of games does not vary depending on the time of year when you come to buy them at the store.

But Joue le Jeu is not only for the sale of board games.

I'm glad that the game animations are back, especially after the covid, and that you're still so motivated to play.

Having a passion is already great, but sharing it is the ultimate consecration for me.

Making you discover games from large and small distributors, sharing moments around board games with you, it's a daily gift.

It makes it a little more concrete and makes it more alive, because these are unique moments and time that you give me.

Thank you for believing and for continuing to believe in my board game animation project.

Don't change, you are all magnificent as you are and our shared moments will always remain anchored in me.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of the JJV Offs!

Play to create links between players!

The game creates a link between players by encouraging them to share common rules, but always different strategies.

By sharing a game and teasing or cooperating with other players during games, we get to know each other a little better.

We discover the fine strategists, the players who cooperate to beat other players, the players who play it solo.

The game creates a closeness between the players, because it allows them to get to know each other in a framework that is common to them.

Many of my players during animation times have discovered commonalities, in addition to board games, with others.

I am thinking, for example, of this shy child who did not dare to play with other children, because she was afraid of “being ridiculous” because she had not played board games much before.

So I took the time to play with her a little to begin with, then little by little, she managed to talk to the other children and play with them without me being present around the play table.

At the end of the animation time, she had made new friends and was happy to have managed to play with the others, she had even won a few games.

As you can see, young or old, we can always find something to gather around board games.

Good day and good game ;)

Play to help build self-confidence!

Playing allows you to discover yourself and develop your self-confidence.

We discover through the game that we can develop various strategies according to our choices and the games we play.

You then learn to trust yourself by trying something new with the framework of the rules of the game.

Everyone advances according to the same rules, which makes it possible to develop tools at their own pace.

I remember this 85-year-old player who was afraid of being lost while playing with her children and grandchildren, because they were more used to playing board games than she was.

We started every day with games based on classic games she had already played and now she plays the game of discovering new games every time.

She succeeded, by gaining self-confidence, in developing her curiosity and enthusiasm for games.

Now, she is no longer afraid to test new animation games and she even often asks her children and grandchildren to play together when they get together as a family outside animation times.

The board game allows you to have an equal footing with all players and to dare to develop game strategies from the simplest to the most complicated.

The board game is an engine of moments shared together, because we listen to the other players to progress in the game.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of the JJV Offs!

Playing is sharing with others!

Playing a board game is always a moment that brings us all together around a table regardless of the type of game we play.

This is an opportunity to share a good time with the people you appreciate the most.

Ambient games, cards, dice, roles, board games bring us together and allow us to share a privileged moment with other players.

Much more than a game, it is a moment of sharing that we offer ourselves and our loved ones, sometimes discovering that they can be bad losers or bad winners.

The great thing about board games is that there are so many varieties of games that one can explore different themes and mechanics at any time.

For example, I am quite bad at immediate memory games, but I make up for it with strategy or logic games that I particularly enjoy.

For 10 minutes or 10 hours of play (or more, huh, it's not forbidden ;) ), the game allows a unique and timeless moment.

A time that we devote to ourselves and to others.

Because yes, playing is also opening up to others.

Good day and good game ;)

Born during the rise of board games!

Born in the late 80s, I was born at the propitious moment in the development of board games that preceded our current board games.

The 80s and 90s saw the board game take a turn by becoming a more developed and affordable family practice.

Following wider diversification in these years, the rise of board games exploded in the 80s.

Games became more varied and therefore reached a wider audience.

These same 80s when we see the development of toy libraries and the professionalization of the field thanks to events such as the Spiel des Jahres from 1978 in Germany and especially the Cannes International Games Festival.

I played games that no longer exist such as the secret phone, let's draw fashion, trap marbles, mouse catcher and many more...

We have all also already played these games that still exist such as Uno, monopoly, good pay, destiny, doctor maboul, power 4, trivial puirsuit, gluttonous hippo, sinking touchdown, twister, etc…

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of the JJV Offs!

Playing is learning while having fun!

The game is an incredible tool to learn lots of new things.

In addition to learning to follow rules on an equal footing between all players, the game allows you to discover various worlds and develop your knowledge.

When playing Timeline, for example, placing major events in chronological order helps memorize these events, or at least get an idea of ​​their time of existence in relation to other events.

The game also develops curiosity if you look into it even a little. ;)

We discover that Hanabi for example means in Japanese "fireworks" by the ideograms flower and fire 花火.

Even by playing Uno, you learn to play American 8.

By playing Reversi, we learn moves that we also make in the game of go.

Even much more than learning, we have fun with loved ones and we sometimes discover hidden facets that only reveal themselves during a moment around a board game. ;)

For example, when playing Jokes de Papa against my best friend, I like to make a particular expression that makes him burst out laughing every time, as you know with Jokes de Papa, you laugh, you lose ^^.

By playing with you around a table on a daily basis, I discover you are determined, strategists, and even sometimes a little trickster. ;)

Good day and good game ;)
