Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings Book & Board Game Review & Giveaway 12/15 WINNER ANNOUNCED



An e-mail was just sent and they have 48 hours to respond before I pick a new winner via random.org.

Thanks to all those that entered and Merry Christmas!

The holiday season is fast approaching and with those special times there seems to be a renewed sense of thankfulness.  Thanksgiving is one of those special holidays where we give thanks to whatever we want and count our blessings for what we have been granted by God.  Christmas is another occasion that some tend to stop and think about all the glorious good things that have been bestowed on us.  Even without the holidays, it's a good practice to count your blessings daily as well as a good lesson to teach your children. 

From the creator/inventor of the wildly popular game, ‘Balderdash’ (more than 15 million copies sold), Canadian resident Laura Robinson and co-author, Elizabeth Bryan, a Southern California resident, comes the next installment of the #1 best selling book series of all time, ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings’. The book, and Count Your Blessings board game is vintage “Chicken Soup for the Soul” and is originally co-authored by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Amy Newmark.

The book contains more than 100 contributed stories of thankfulness amidst life’s rough patches. These ‘mompreneurs’ developed the board game based on the book that focuses on finding the silver lining in all of life’s scenarios. Together, they offer inspirational stories about navigating life’s toughest challenges by finding blessings -in-disguise. From illness to foreclosures to family fortitude, there’s a story in this book that will leave a lasting impression on everyone’s heart. With the book selling for $14.95, and the game’s suggested retail price of $24.99, it’s still easy to find “silver linings”… even this holiday season. A great holiday gift to inspire the whole family to count their blessings. Look for the book and game, which is eco-friendly and made from recycled material, to launch in November.

Chicken Soup For The Soul Game: Count Your Blessings

Product Features:

  • Chicken Soup For the Soul: Count Your Blessings is the fun feel good family game that gets everybody talking.
  • The game is inspired by the #1 sellilng New York Times book series.
  • Count Your Blessings is all about finding the bright side to each scenario on the cards.
  • Everyone wins when we all remember to count our blessings!
  • There are no hard and fast rules - only fun.
About the Game:

The game uses clever copy and engaging logic to get players to go from “tired to inspired, frazzled to dazzled and stressed to blessed” by navigating challenging (and often funny) real life scenarios about health, home life, work, school, and finances. Players can head to the Thank Tank and hear why losing their phone could be a reason to “cell-abrate,” or try on the Bright Side Glasses and “see” a ripped pair of pants in a “hole” new light! Here are a few sample questions:

What are three positive things to “cough up” about having the flu?
  1. You’ll get to miss school or work and finish that novel on your bedside table.
  2. You’ll take lots more vitamins, boost your immune system and get healthier in the long run.
  3. For once, you are the center of attention in your family!
What are three “silver linings” that turn a fractured elbow into a “lucky break?”
  1. You learn how to adapt and do things with your other hand.
  2. You have to quit the volleyball team, but join a choir instead and find out you have a stellar voice.
  3. You don’t have to take out the garbage for at least six weeks!
What are three silver linings you can “fire off” about losing your job?
  1. You get a great severance package and can take a well deserved and needed break.
  2. Your job sucked and you hated your boss – now you can find something you LOVE to do.
  3. Your kids will get to see you more – they miss you!

In order to get this giveaway out before Christmas, I want to post the giveaway with the review forthcoming.

The Spirit of Giving to My Loyal Subscribers

I have a host of giveaways wrapping up by December 15 with new one's coming such as Mastermind Toys and Chicken Soup for the Soul Count Your Blessings Book AND Game.  My goal is to have them all over in time hopefully for a Christmas delivery to help you.

Each day, I'll provide a task to do to earn five extra entries to increase your chances to win. 

Today's task is to go to my post on Mastermind Toys, go to each and every giveaway you choose and write five comments on what you would choose. 

For example, after choosing the toy you prefer from that post, go to the Handy Manny giveaway and list that toy five times.  Easy!

Have a great day!
