Bring on the Wine thanks to Winc

Winc is not your traditional wine club: They are a direct-distribution global wine company that personalizes the entire wine experience. They are perfecting how wine is made, distributed, perceived, and purchased via their Palate Profile quiz that recommends wine based on your unique tastes and enjoyed on behalf of a new generation of wine drinkers. It takes the hassle and guesswork out of picking a bottle from your local liquor store and delivers the perfect bottle directly to your doorstep. They do all this as part of their quest to improve the experience for consumers, create a platform for artisanal winemaking, and build a grape-to-glass supply chain that's sustainable for the planet. No more intimidating language and steep price points, and more joy in the act of sharing a bottle.

Bring on the Entertainment

My go-to entertainment idea is playing games. If you know me personally of even follow me on Instagram, then you know we LOVE to play Monopoly with friends and family. Another of our favorites is Phase 10. But I recently came across two new games that I thought would be great to play:
Tattoo Stories: A party game where players 12 and up compete by drawing tattoos and telling the best stories. Everyone takes a turn to be the customer by select cards to inspire their tattoo. The other players (tattoo artists) make up a story and draw a tattoo they feel Best represents the cards selected, then pitch their idea to the customer.
It's Blunderful: It's blunderful is a party game that is simple, fun and engaging; You will bet on how others would respond in various awkward situations. Everyone takes a turn to read a card with an awkward situation and accompanying reactions. The other players make their wager and guess how the reader would respond. Guess the correct answer and you get the points you wagered.

What are your go to easy entertaining ideas?
