SWOOC Games - Supporting Small Shops

SWOOC Games Giant Tower Game

*I received product in exchange for my honest opinion.

Welcome to my new Supporting Small Shops blog series! I love supporting small shops and companies, and it's more important now than ever before. I already have a few great shops lined up for the series, as well as some fun upcoming giveaways, so stay tuned!

This idea has been going through my mind for a few years, but I just haven't taken the time to implement it until now. Most of the products I review never make it to the blog. I only share things I genuinely love and would recommend here, but most of the time they get added to a roundup post. I'm so excited to share more of the small shops I love!

Today, I'm kicking off the series with SWOOC games. I worked with SWOOC Games years ago, and I was so impressed by the quality of their product. We had so much fun playing Yardzee over the years, so I was excited when they reached out to me to ask if we wanted to review another game. Of course, I immediately said yes, because it is a company I proudly stand behind and recommend to others!


When I first worked with SWOOC Games, they were a very small company known as Splinter Woodworking Co. The company started out of a garage, offering a few quality games made out of wood to their customers. Over the years, the company grew, changed their name, and is now one of the fastest growing game companies in the United States. They now sell games made from all types of materials. Not only is this a company that gives back, but they truly care about their customers!


There are so many reasons why SWOOC Games is a standout company!
  • They sell unique, quality games.
  • For every order, they plant a tree! (They planted over 40,000 trees in 2020! You can read more about their incredible mission on their website.)
  • They use carbon neutral products, which means they support our planet.
  • They care about their customers - they offer free, quick shipping on all orders, respond to customers within 24 hours, and offer a 60 day money back guarantee on all of their products.
  • Customers RAVE about this company!

SWOOC Games puts a fun, unique spin on classic games! 

We own two of their most popular games: Yardzee & Farkle and the Reclaimed Giant Tower Game. Both games are a hit with my family, and Yardzee is always a favorite at our picnics and parties!

Here are the other fun games they offer:
  • Giant Four In A Row
  • Giant Tic Tac Toe
  • Giant Kick Darts
  • Giant Checkers & Tic Tac Toe
  • Giant Right Center Left
  • Dunzo Cards & Shots


The Reclaimed Giant Tower Game arrived at the perfect time, just when the post-holiday-long-winter-ahead blues kicked in! The included wooden crate was easy to assemble, and it serves as storage for the large blocks and is used as the game base. Once everything was assembled for play, my initial thought was how convenient and pretty it was. It is truly a beautiful piece of work!

We absolutely loved playing this strategy game, and the extra large blocks made it so much more fun! At one point, the tower was taller than Liam. My only piece of advice is to wear shoes when you play the game, and watch out for blocks falling on little kids, because the blocks are large and sturdy. (Also know as using common sense!) Coen and Liam love picking up the blocks and putting them in the crate when we are done playing. We quickly found out that this game also doubles as an AWESOME set of building blocks!

The blocks are beautifully stained, and durable. No matter how many times they fell, they held up. The stained crate is just as pretty as the blocks, and it actually fits in well with home decor! The company recommends keeping the blocks stored out of the elements, so we keep it in our living room. We're in the process of transitioning to a more natural farmhouse style, and it fits in really well!
