JJV's Offs

On 21/07/2024

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

Everything to gain!

I hesitated a lot 6 years ago before opening the store... And then, I told myself that I had nothing to lose and rather everything to gain! As the sayings go, “He who tries nothing, achieves nothing” and “He who lives will see”…

I hesitated, because the gaming world was a little present but spread out a lot around Vaison. I wondered if I would have enough players or those close to players to be able to offer board games in Vaison and its surroundings.

And not to simplify things, I gave myself the additional objective of specializing also with independent games, always very interesting, but nevertheless less known to the general public...

And since “luck favors the bold”, always according to a saying, I ended up taking a year to mature my project and train myself in the necessary tools and launched myself.

Since I love challenges, I said to myself why not also offer Vaison moments where we Play the Game!

So, alongside in-store and online sales, I launched in-store game events which were going pretty well until covid.

And word of mouth has meant that private and public structures have trusted me to provide support to their residents and employees.

And then as a local business, I offered cyberspace which was very useful when it was still available. Too bad the abuse from some people forced me to put an end to it…

However, I remain focused every day on the photocopying, scanning and Pick Up parcel services that are useful to you on a daily basis.

When I look back on its first six years, I have gained a lot with all of you on a daily basis.

I matured, learned, made mistakes in order to progress better later, “braced myself and let it be said” as a great businesswoman from Vaison had advised me…

But that’s how I am, I don’t know how to do things by halves, but I have learned to stay calm in the face of life’s challenges.

I also don't know how to reciprocate harm when it is done to me... You don't heal a wound by moving a knife...

All these negative and above all mostly positive experiences allowed me to gain from it!

Thank you again to everyone for sharing my fun journey and living your passion for board games with me. ;)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone!

Today we’re going to talk about The Diary of a Wimpy Kid!

Be the first to complete the challenges within the time limit, from 2 to 6 players from 20 to 40 minutes from 8 years old!

Ready, set… Hurry!

Greg and his friends challenge you, each one faster and funnier than the last!

The game “Diary of a Wimpy Kid; 10 second challenge” includes everything you need to deflate your best friends.

It's not that the challenges are difficult (okay, some are), but you'll need luck and skill to complete them in less than 10 seconds.

There are ball challenges, cube challenges, intellectual challenges and challenges that sometimes literally bring you closer to your opponents!

Move forward on the board each time you complete a challenge. It's much more fun than letting others overtake you!

Things will get tougher when, with the dice and the ball on your head, you will have to kneel down and name 8 teachers, types of ice cream or breeds of dog at the same time.

The game board tells you the actions you must perform and if you progress quickly, your life will not be that of a loser, but of a glorious victor.

There are 3 categories of challenges: solo, categories and two players. Will you be the champion or the loser?

Choose one of six characters to move, place them at the start, and let the race begin! Players take turns rolling the die and moving around the game board, taking on challenges as they arise.

Each round, players draw a challenge card and determine whether they will accept the challenge or pass it on to the next player. Challenges can be solo, category-based, or two-player. Successfully pass a card to advance as instructed, but fail and you will have to move back one space.

The last four squares on the game board are “no” squares. On your turn, instead of rolling the die, you take a challenge card and complete the challenge.

This time you can't refuse it.

The first player to complete their race wins!

Good day and good game

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

A daily victory!

When I see the playful world that is shared more and more on a daily basis, I tell myself that we are lucky to have so many choices of board games...

The more varied the choice of games and adapted to all of us, the more we want to start or get back into board games.

And then, sharing a fun moment around a table is so unique and enjoyable that it would be a shame to deprive yourself of it.

We have talented creators who allow us to play in different universes and with various styles of game mechanics, from the simplest to the most complex…

The daily victory is to succeed in bringing together amateurs and seasoned gamers to share a pleasant moment together.

My greatest victory is seeing you fully enjoy the moment around the games during outdoor activities and events.

Seeing you create or bond with other players through games is a huge reward for me!

So as long as you live the fun adventure to the fullest with me, I will continue to offer you games and activities as unique as you all!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone!

Today we're going to talk about Stupid Giants!

Be the first giant to climb the mountain to catch 7 stars and win the game, 3 to 6 players for 30 minutes from 7 years old!

In Stupid Giants, let's chase the stars to become the best giant!

The first player takes 2 actions. Pray to the Ancestor and take a free rock without anything on it to move it either to a space on the ground (never in the water), or to another free rock or occupied only by the Head of the Ancestor.

 Finally, he must take the Head of the Ancestor and place it on the displaced rock! Climb the mountain to jump and catch stars!

From the next round, everyone first has 2 free actions, to distribute freely: pray to the Ancestor, then move OR the opposite OR pray twice (to move 2 rocks) OR move their giant twice.

Then, he can stop his turn OR... let out another cry! Another giant (any one) then rolls the big opposition die: As long as the giant receives flowers, he can continue!

With each new cry, the big opposition die will be thrown...

In short, a giant's turn ends when the player decides to do so OR... when he receives a nonos or a carcass in his face OR... when he has caught stars OR when he has lost a fight.

At the end of these 2 actions, a giant can stop its turn OR... show its stupidity and let out a cry of giant effort! Alerted by this cry, another giant (any one) rolls the small opposition die.

Then he decides again whether to stop his turn OR... let out another cry of effort!

Another giant (any) then rolls the medium opposition die.

He moves his giant to a neighboring square: on the ground or on a rock located maximum 1 level higher.

Giants never move diagonally!

Jumping ! A giant who spends an action to move to a neighboring square located 2, 3 or 4 rocks lower, performs a jump.

He grabs 2, 3 or 4 stars respectively and advances his little cube on the score board! His turn is over.

Coming down from a single rock is not jumping, it is called walking for a giant and his tour continues...

The fall of a giant (shot to the carcass, defeat in a fight) never allows you to catch stars.

If a giant jumps from 5 rocks (the maximum height) he does not catch stars, but enters the legend!

The game is then immediately over, the other giants stand up and applaud his victory by KO!

If there is no victory by KO then the first giant to obtain 7 stars wins the game!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

I had a dream !

I have always dreamed of working in a field that brings people together and brings smiles to their faces...

This is also why I worked as a waitress with a smile and motivation, because in the restaurant people come together to enjoy a good time.

When I worked at Picard, I carefully learned about the cold chain process and product compositions to be able to best advise customers.

And then I moved towards entertainment for children and teenagers, because providing them with support and a smile on a daily basis is great.

Without forgetting what we receive in return: the smiles, the moments of complicity, the activities that make them grow and gain self-confidence, among other things…

I often meet up with the children and teenagers I had during the post-Christmas events in the town where I come from. It’s always a pleasure to see how they have evolved.

I may be naive, but I think that you can bring people together and get closer to them when you have the necessary open-mindedness to do so…

And so I took the chance to have a commercial premises to launch my slightly crazy, but so exciting project of creating the store so that in Vaison we too can Play the Game!

Because beyond looking at game boxes to read what is written there, I have tested the majority of the games that I offer you.

For what ?

Quite simply because, who can tell you about games better than a passionate person who has been playing since they were a child?

I continue to play every day and I am curious about all types of games long before being simply a store that sells games.

And then the ultimate project concerning the store, it was for me the consecration with the animations!

Rather present in store before covid, I can now offer you and enjoy exquisite moments during outdoor activities with you!

I had a dream, on my modest scale, to succeed in bringing people together and I believe that I am in the process of making it come true, so thank you for your daily trust and enthusiasm, once again. ;)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone!

Today we're going to talk about Flip Hop!

Do the snail break dance as quickly as possible, with 2 to 4 players for 15 minutes from 6 years old!

In Flip Hop, recompose the snail dance in the correct order before the other players to win the break dance card.

We turn over an “objectives” card to place it face up on the table.

The goal is then to be the first to reconstruct the composition of the nine snails in the order and orientation of the “objective” card with its cards in front of you.

The first player to succeed wins the “objective” card, if of course they make no mistake.

If he makes a mistake, he obtains a pledge such as playing with one hand, doing a trick even when two cards are changed or even applauding each time a partner activates his pledge, etc.

If a player obtains 2 “Objective” cards, his opponents can impose a permanent pledge of their choice on him.

For the competitive variant, when a player has reconstituted an objective and has placed his hand in the middle of the table, if the arrangement of this player's snails does not correspond to the "Objective" card, the player receives a penalty in place of a pledge.

He then takes the “Objective” card and places it face down in front of him.

 If a player receives 2 penalties, he is excluded from the game.

For the children's variation, when playing with younger children, allow them to play without the orientation of the card.

For a young child, have them play solo. When he thinks he has the solution, check to see if he wins the card. After 3 points scored, he wins the game.

The first player to win three “objective” cards wins the game!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

I have good hope

Thanks again to everyone who came to celebrate the store's 6th anniversary with me, you are awesome as always. ;)

When I see what I started with 6 years ago and where the store is today, I am very happy and proud.

Proud because my daily involvement allows us to further develop the world of board games in the area and to bring in even more players. ;)

Very happy because for most of you, you have been there since the beginning of the store and that is priceless!

I landed in a very discreet gaming world at the start and non-existent game activities, with player development in Vaison and its surroundings.

I am quite proud to be able to say that I have brought my modest, playful touch to Vaison and its surroundings via dynamic activities that adapt to each of you.

I hope to continue to bring you my enthusiasm around board games through activities, in the store and online via the blog and video of quick games that I offer you daily.

If you would like to join us in the gaming world, you are welcome. Young and old, beginners or more experienced, there is something for everyone!

The “Discovery Games” events at the store aim to introduce newbies to the world of board games.

So, don’t hesitate to come join me to open up to board games! ;)

I am hopeful that the gaming world continues to be as dynamic and humanly enriching.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone!

Today we're going to talk about Into the Blue!

Dive in search of precious resources, 2 to 5 players for 20 minutes, ages 8 and up!

In Into the Blue, explore the depths and collect precious goods, but be careful, you are not the only one who wants to seize these submerged wonders...

On his turn, the active player throws the 6 dice into the lid of the box. Among these 6 dice, he can choose to reroll the dice of his choice, a maximum of two times. He places the dice he wishes to keep in front of him, and throws the other dice back into the lid of the box.

At the end of his three throws, the result can no longer be modified.

If the player keeps certain dice after the first roll, he can choose to reroll any of these dice on the third roll.

The player then arranges his dice, from smallest to largest. Only dice forming an uninterrupted sequence of numbers starting with 1 (1, 2, 3, etc.) are taken into account.

The final result forms an unbroken sequence of numbers starting with 1. If a number is missing in the sequence, all dice with a higher value are lost.

The player must then choose any number from the validated sequence and place on the corresponding level of the game board as many of their Shell tokens as there are dice displaying this number.

During the game, each player establishes his presence on each diving level by stacking his Shell tokens there.

If a player's final result does not include a 1, all 6 dice are lost. Their turn ends and it is up to the next player to play.

If a player's final result contains an unbroken sequence of numbers 1 to 5 along with a chest symbol, they have made a perfect dive. He then does not place any Shell tokens on the board, but randomly chooses one of the Chest tokens at the bottom of the game board. These can have different values ​​(5, 6, 6, 7 and 8), and the player keeps the secret. value of the chest he won. He then immediately plays a new round.

Clarification: when you perform a perfect dive, you must collect a Chest token. You cannot choose to give it up to place a Shell token on the board.

The end of the game is triggered if either a player places their last Shell token on the board or if a player manages to win the last Chest token (by performing a dive).

perfect) and in this case only, the other players do not have a last turn and the game ends instantly.

The player who has placed the most Shell tokens on a level wins the Main Treasure token of the level. The 2nd player with the most Shell tokens on the same level wins the Secondary Treasure token. Proceed in this way for each dive level.

Several players can be tied on the same level. In this case, the player with the most pawns on the level immediately above wins the disputed token by the corresponding tie.

If the tie continues, continue to proceed in this way with the level above, up to level 1 if necessary.

If the tied players have the same number of shell tokens up to and including level 1, the player with the most unused shell tokens wins the level.

If the players still cannot decide between themselves, the player who played their last turn first wins the tie.

The player with the most points wins the game!

Good day and good game ;)

And now is the time to talk about the best! :)

This best who enriches me humanly and this best is you, yes you!  And among you there are great people like: 

- You, Adamo, thank you for your trust with your Vanagloria card game 2020. :)

  - All of you: for your sympathy and good humor every day, thank you. Thank you for our fun and other exchanges, I love chatting with you. ;)

  - You Marinette and the journalists who have written wonderful articles for me since the start of the store. THANKS. :) 

- You, this magnificent clientele who supported me when I was called "racist" because I didn't have the Internet (yes, yes just for that...^^) with the Google comment that went with it of course otherwise this is not funny…. Thank you :)

  -You, these golden clients who join me in entertainment and with whom I always share unique and warm moments in Vaison or elsewhere! Thank you, Grazie, Thanks, Gracias ;) 

-You, the CCI of Vaucluse for my benevolence, digital, originality and my agility trophy nominations during the 2021 Réussir au Féminin trophies! Thanks to the CCI and Claire for her advice before the store opened. 

-You, the town halls and institutions who place your trust in the store for events and your game orders! Thanks to the Vaison Town Hall ;)

  -You, thank you to all my partners, suppliers, entertainment teams!

-You, thank you to all of you who contribute to my daily fun experience! Don't change anything, you are perfect just the way you are ;) 

- and thank you to my husband and my in-laws who have supported me for 6 years now! :) 

See you soon at the store, have a good day and enjoy the game ;) 


A little point of view

On 25/06/2024


Hello everyone !

So I have some thanks to give and I will save the best people for another post because we always save the best for last ;)

So let's start with my fan club which we don't know about ^^:

- if you didn't like the new products last time AJ & Co. you should tell me rather than giving me 1 out of 5 on Google. :) And who knows, try to see if there isn't something you might like in it, or come see me so I can explain them to you, it's even better ;)

- on several Google files of other traders with famous ratings, we can see that they too suddenly became racist at the same time as me, like that, poof, overnight! :) What a coincidence ! ;)

- on the other hand, if because I don't have the Internet I am racist, my advice is still good despite everything, but is no longer so when you have to buy a game with a voucher that they offer you. :) That’s good, you will only be able to use them elsewhere this year only. ;)

- no intimidation, insults and harassment are not “normal” my dear AJ & Co., that’s what it says! Whether it happens to teenagers or adults, I would NEVER be on the side of the bullies! And 6 years like that really and without taking revenge, that’s resilience!  Well done Play the Game Vaison! :)

-well done my dear AJ & Co. you got a little word from me in return, which I know you won't like. :) Enjoy it my dear AJ & Co., it's your glory day ;) I don't like your actions and words either, but I'll live with it ;).

As I told you face to face at the store (because no, I don't need to sneak up on you ;) ), I wouldn't retort, I'm not like you and that would be okay. the importance in the life of my business that you do not have. ;)

Thank you to these people who allowed me to grow through the trials they put me through and continue to put me through. ;)

For teenagers and people who experience harassment or meanness or jealousy, you don't have any of the problems that these people like to invent for you!

You will always only be put down by people who don't feel good about themselves and envy your strength or simply the person you are who force them to confront the problems they have and don't want to solve. …

If you think they are your friends, they are not, friends support you and don't tear you down.

Believe in yourself because you deserve it! I believe in you and I like to see you carry out the projects that are important to you ;)

It was important that I dot the i's, not for myself, but for those who suffer and who remain silent.

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

There will be sport!

Board games are not just games sitting quietly around a table.

Many games are played or can be played outside to have fun while enjoying the good weather.

I am thinking, for example, of molki, the game of papattes, kub and many other outdoor games which are just brilliant!

And many games can also be adapted to make them a little more sporty…

Have you ever tried to play jungle speed by putting the totem on the other side of the room you are playing in?

Don't leave anything lying around because it can quickly end up becoming anything. But it promises eventful games... ;)

We can also adapt games to make them life-size formats where we are at the heart of the game.

For example, this is what I did for the 5th anniversary by offering you a giant Mad Trip in the store!

What a pleasure to have seen you having fun enjoying the course that I have proposed to you, both the youngest and the oldest!

For the store's 6th anniversary, I plan to offer you an original game to celebrate with you!

Brain gymnastics is always relevant whether we play a game outdoors or around a table, because we have to admit, we generally like to win. ;)

We know that we cannot win all the time, but at least we will have won in strategy, in deduction, in logic, in resources, but above all in good times shared around board games.

In short, we will continue to move to play the game in Vaison and elsewhere. ;)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we're going to talk about Full Speed!

Rank the different objects and animals in order of speed, from 10 to 30 minutes for 2 to 8 players!

In Full Speed, placing the cards in the right place will prevent us from drawing penalty cards.

We place all the cards in a pile face down on the table, then we place a first card in the center of the table.

A player then draws a first card and has the other players guess his speed by showing the entire card except the speed which he hides with his fingers.

The player questioned by the first player has three possibilities for placing the card on the speed line:

- On the left, if he thinks that the card is slower than one of the cards already on the table.

- On the right, if he thinks that the card is faster than another face up card.

- Above, if he thinks that the card is as fast as one of the cards already on the table.

If he made no mistake, the card remains on the Speed ​​line, but if it was not correct, he takes the penalty card and places it face up in front of him.

As you play, the Speed ​​line will expand and the placement of cards will be more difficult to perform.

As soon as there are 12 cards lined up, the player who has just placed the twelfth removes the first and last card from the Speed ​​line and the game continues.

The game ends as soon as 3 penalty cards are collected with 4 players and 5 with 2 and 3 players.

The game continues with the remaining players until there is a winner. 

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

In Vaison, we play the game!

Almost 6 years ago, I opened the store with the aim of developing the fun world of board games in Vaison and its surroundings.

Several attacks later, I made sure to still hold the bar firmly, sometimes with gritted teeth, but always with determination.

When I opened the store, there were no toy libraries and other game stores in Vaison and that was a shame... ;)

I took the risky gamble of opening a board game store in a slightly more isolated street in the city center of Vaison.

And then, I offered a stand at the games festival with the mistigri baronnies toy library.

And one thing led to another, or rather word of mouth, game activities began at Mac Donald in Saint Romain.

And everything came together, to my greatest happiness with activities with game libraries, town halls, associations and various private and public structures, including Sereno for example…

The store's opening audience grew to more and more gamers, but in the beginning, discovery was at the heart of the store.

This is also why I wanted to continue to develop game discovery activities with “Jeux discover” within the store.

Initiating board games doesn't scare me, you are welcome to discover a daily game of games together around a table where we create good memories.

Because the more players we have, the more we play!

Since the start of the store, I not only wanted to sell board games in store and online, but also to play and help gamists and amateurs in the sector play!

Thank you to all those who participate with me on a daily basis in this magnificent game of the playful world!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we're going to talk about Cross Fire!

Don't get caught in crossfire, 5 to 10 players for 5 to 10 minutes from 14 years old!

In Cross Fire, we will play hidden roles either VIP protectors or VIP enforcers, but also personal objectives.

In Cross Fire mode, players form two teams, blue and red. The red team must reach the VIPs and the blue team must prevent the VIPs from being hit.

After looking at the cards of the different characters, we learn about their role in the game and their specificities.

Then we shuffle the cards again to distribute them to the next player who will do the same.

You will then have to claim a role with the card placed in front of it face down, trying to hide your true role to achieve your objective.

By discussing with the other players, about the roles that we try to deduce with the previous shuffling of the cards and their words, we try to determine what the role of the other players is.

To claim another role, you change the meaning of your card. We cannot show our card face up to the other players, but we can very well claim to be playing a role that is not ours to achieve our objectives.

Then, after 3 minutes of discussion and bluffing, on the count of 3, we point our finger at another player.

With his finger still pointed at another player, the game leader announces:

- If you are not armed, lower your finger.

- Agents, reveal your role card.

- If you have been targeted by an agent, lower your weapon and reveal your role card.

- VIP reveal your role cards. Are you targeted?

Yes: the red team wins; No: the blue team wins.

Some cards have victory or defeat conditions and are announced at that time.

With Sniper mode, the sniper will attempt to kill the assassins by placing his sniper shot cards before the time runs out. At the end of the round, the players targeted by sniper fire are shot down and reveal their role cards.

If all assassins are killed, the blue team wins; but if the sniper kills a VIP or a civilian, the red team wins.

If no team has won at this stage, the assassins not defeated reveal their role cards; we count down again to 3 until the final resolution.

To win at Crossfire, let your instincts guide you.

Your first lead is the role the players say they have. If too many players have the same role, someone is bound to be lying...

Your second avenue is observing the cards before the start of the game. Did you see the same cards as what other players announced?

Perhaps you have found allies... Each piece of information is very useful; it's up to you to put the pieces of these bits of information together.

So who is lying? Who tells the truth? Who should hide their identity? Who seems to be looking for the truth? Who seems evasive or too talkative?

We add up the points from each round and the player with the most points wins the game.

Will you be caught in the crossfire?

Good day and good game ;)

JJV's Offs

On 09/06/2024

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

Daily golden moments with you!

An independent store is a daily race, although I'm not looking for the gold medal.

A podium of personal glory doesn’t interest me either…

I have never tried to be better than anyone except myself.

For me, everyone has room to develop their desires and passions.

So I really don’t understand the point of the principle of “competition” which pushes some people to put obstacles in the way of others…

The day is not coming when you will see me belittling or trying to destroy someone, even if the opposite is more than true.

In the store as in everyday life, putting others down has never been part of my life and believe me it never will be!

No, I would not belittle, but I would not keep silent in the face of this kind of baseness either…

The only thing that interests me is to see the gaming world progress and evolve so that we can all enjoy it together.

The rest is only vile and childish in my eyes...

I long for every moment I share with those who share the passion for board games with me ;)

Moreover, those who meet me on a daily basis have a glimpse of who I am in the store and during events.

My real customer words can be found here:

So, thank you to everyone who has supported the store on a daily basis for almost 6 years and welcome to everyone who continues to join me along the way. ;)

In Vaison, we play the game! My gold medal is you!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about 8 bit box!

3,2,1, ready, fire, go for a wild Olympic race, among other things, 40 minutes of 4 to 6 players from 8 years old!

In 8 bit box, we play Pixoid, Outspeed and Stadium! Defeat the ghosts, win the race and prove yourself at the games!

And today, we're going to talk about Stadium and its 10 team events to achieve victory over other athletes.

The best athletes from the Blue Starz and Red Sunz are expected on the athletics track!

You have trained your whole life for this event. It's up to you to show what you're worth, but keep in mind that you will be stronger as a team.

Manage your efforts as best as possible during all the events so that your nation shines by winning as many medals as possible!

Using your controller, decide how much Energy you want to spend in the current Trial.

Each Event being different, you will need to be on the same wavelength as your Team partners to be able to go the distance, and thus win a maximum of Medals at the end of 10 Events.

Each type of Medal earns a certain number of points.

Trial tiles come in three types: standard Trial tiles, Rest Trial tiles, and Final Trial tiles.

When the Trials are set up, they form an athletics track.

During this phase, the first player reveals the next tile still face down according to the direction of the game.

During this phase, play the current Event as indicated by the explanations read by the first player.

You are never allowed to program your controller with a number greater than the amount of energy remaining on your Energy track. You can always program 0. The cube on your Energy track can never go beyond 30 or below 0.

If the Crucible allows you to communicate with other players, everyone at the table must be able to hear you. You can never show your controller to other players until the Crucible asks you to reveal it.

So who will win after the following events: track cycling, horse riding, golf, team gymnastics, 4X100m relay, weightlifting, pole vault, archery, pole vault, 100 meters, beach volleyball, fencing, rugby , taekwendo and the final, basketball.

When the Trial ends, award the corresponding Medal(s) as described in the explanation of each Trial.

The game ends when the Medal of the 10th Event has been awarded. Each Team adds up its victory points.

The team with the most victory points at the end of the game wins.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

Take gem all, on the way to even more nuggets and fun moments with you!

As the store's 6th anniversary approaches, I feel in an even more playful mood than usual!

Each year that passes is a source of personal enrichment for me…

Our exchanges, the game world which continually evolves, the game activities that we share; the simplest things that make me the most happy every day.

I plan to continue to collect and preserve each of these precious exchanges inside and outside the store in my memory.

All these moments which are all gems that I seize on the fly and keep with me on my playful journey at your side.

From the first events at Mac Donald's in Saint Romain en Viennois to current events, all these experiences have brought me even more experience and good memories.

Your trust in well-known and lesser-known board games, validated and renewed on a daily basis, I am only rich in all that...

I always have lots of new ideas in mind that I will present to you little by little so that we play the game with ever more enthusiasm and sharing. ;)

New partnerships, evolving game activities and why not even more games, among other things...

Do you want to continue enjoying the fun world together? So let's go !

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Take gem all!

In Take gem all, find the best word for 20 minutes, from 8 years old and from 2 to 10 players to win as many gems as possible!

In Take Gem All, grab as many precious stones as possible by being the fastest player to give an answer corresponding to the theme played and starting with one of the four letters in play!

But be careful; beware of trap cards that could slow you down and diamonds that could disrupt the flow of the game...

Once the theme is known, players must be the quickest to find an answer related to this theme and whose first letter begins with one of the 4 letters proposed by the Precious Stones.

The first player to give a correct answer wins the Gemstone of the letter used:

- Emeralds (green) are worth 1 point

- Sapphires (blue) are worth 2 points

- Rubies (red) are worth 3 points

- Diamonds (gray) allow you to steal a stone from another player.

There are 4 kinds of trap cards, bamboo, carat'strophe, cursed stone and diamond fever which allow other players to play, replace the precious stones, have to discard a stone and use the letters following the letters drawn to create words.

The game ends once all Theme cards have been played. Players count their points and the player with the most wins. In the event of a tie, the tied players compete in a final round.

Good day and good game ;)

JJV's Offs

On 26/05/2024

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

Penny papers, we try, we adjust and we progress.

A store is a daily adventure. Sometimes things work the first time and sometimes you have to try again and even change your strategy when necessary.

To try to move the store forward, I set achievable goals for myself, even if it means achieving them gradually.

Because sometimes, when we demand too much from ourselves, we don't achieve things any better. You have to know how to find the right balance...

The store is therefore progressing slowly but surely, just like me, to be sustainable over time.

The mistakes I made along the way allowed me to improve the store and grow along the way. We never stop learning as long as we remain curious and open to the world around us.

I am naturally curious about almost all subjects, except what people say and anything close to it, because I like to discover things and getting out of my comfort zone doesn't put me at ease, but it 'is always useful and informative.

When I offer you themes every 3 months, I continue to discover things before sharing them with you for anyone who might also be curious. :)

The adventure is never easy, but it provides unique and enriching moments. I am very happy to be able to share them with you on a daily basis. ;)

Good day and good game ;)

JJV's Offs

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

Chili dice, the dice are cast and life spices up their score.

The die is cast throughout the year. And sometimes they don’t lack spice…

It happened to me when I embarked on a new project, to wonder if I was capable of carrying it out and to be afraid to commit to it thinking that I would not be qualified enough to carry it out…

I'm thinking, for example, of the first team building around the second year of the store where I was asked to lead a group of 20 people.

So many people for this type of event for the first time, it was really stressful, I assure you.

I felt like I had forgotten half of my equipment and then didn't know where to stand in front of 20 pairs of eyes...

And then, I tried everything and launched different styles of play mixing cooperation and competitive. This isn't the best idea I could have had...

Clearly competitiveness won out over cooperation and they all lost.

And I can tell you that I felt the spices of life there... :s . I was very hot because I was so stressed...

And then, DING, I said to myself, damn it, we're going to try to integrate role play which will allow them to integrate the competitive game and end up being forced to cooperate and succeed together.

Competent and competitive each in their field, I understood that this team needed to see that they all had weak points to help each other.

Finally, realizing that their colleagues also had shortcomings allowed them to create the beginnings of cohesion by initiating a more calm dialogue.

In the end, I still managed to initiate the beginnings of a dialogue in this team. The following team building sessions went very well. ;)

In short, one of the spicy episodes of the store.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we're going to talk about Chili Dice!

In Chili Dice, create dice combos for 30 minutes, from 8 years old and from 1 to 4 players without forgetting the chili peppers to score the highest score!

In Chili Dice, you can roll the dice as many times as you want during a round to try to maximize your score.

But you only have thirty dice rolls at most in the entire game, so be careful when you try your luck!

Chili Dice includes a set of six six-sided dice, with one side on each die having red pips instead of white, with a red 1 on one die, a red 2 on another, and so on.

On a turn, you roll all the dice, set aside any dice you want, and rotate any red die facing the side you want (or leave them as is).

You can re-roll the remaining dice and repeat the process, noting each roll on the score sheet.

 When you stop, you score the dice in one of the ten fields on the score sheet, scoring for the numbers 1 through 6 (the red die doubling your score, if present); a straight; red dice; sets; and everything you have in front of you.

If you complete all ten fields before maxing out your rolls, you receive 5 points for each unused roll.

Whoever scores the most points wins!

Good day and good game ;)
