We chose to play Chronicles of Crime: Welcome to Redview Expansion by Lucky Duck Games. The Chronicles of Crime series are cooperative scenarios for 1-4 players. you do need a smartphone and app to interact with the game. Without giving too much away on this particular adventure, but it is themed similar to the tv show, Stranger Things.

The Welcome to Redview expansion is a family friendly expansion to the base game. This adventure takes place in the 80’s and you play as kids trying to figure out the strange happenings in town. Our two teens were able to solve today’s mystery within the time limit. We are excited to see if we can be successful with the next 3 missions.

The Food…Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake is always one that presents me with a mini mystery each time I make it. I don’t make it enough to have perfected the technique or timing to achieve a consistent result. With the recipe form Sally’s Baking Addiction, there was a suggestion to pop to topping in the fridge to chill while making the cake batter. This did seem to help, the cake definitely wasn’t as soggy as others I have baked.
