Family Game Night

Break the Monotony of Overplayed Board Games!

CATAN Welcome to the island of Catan! After a long voyage at sea, the people in your expedition compete against other seafarers in building settlements. Enjoy the 45–90-minute game as you and your family build roads, barter resources, and race for absolute supremacy on Catan. ONE NIGHT WEREWOLF Every night, werewolves prowl around the village, and it’s up to the villagers to find the werewolf once the sun rises — before it’s too late. Each person plays a unique role with different abilities to help find or conceal the werewolf. If the werewolf is caught, the villagers win the game, but if the werewolf manages to escape, the villagers lose. Now you can bring some exciting variety into your family game nights. Don’t miss out on these excellent tabletop games, and most importantly, have fun!

Family game night is a time when a family can forget about all of life’s commitments and bond over a good old-fashioned board game. But the old, tattered Monopoly box or worn-out UNO cards can leave something to be desired, and the classics might be getting a little dull. If you’re tired of playing the same board games over and over, it might be time to start looking for ways to change things up. Here are four tabletop games you might not have heard of that are perfect for spicing up family game night. MYSTERIUM Your family will love delving into this cooperative murder mystery game that is a mixture of Clue and Dixit. You can play as the ghost or as one of the mediums who enters the haunting. The ghost player gives each medium a clue or vision about a potential murderer, and the mediums have

to guess which person, room, or weapon was used to murder the ghost player. After each turn, the ghost reveals whether each of the mediums’ guesses are right or not. If all of the mediums succeed in guessing correctly by the seventh in-game hour, they work together to find the true murderer. LASER CHESS A classic game of chess is a great way to spend an evening, and it just got a little more interesting. Laser chess includes all the problem-solving skills a typical chess game offers but with a twist. At the end of each turn, a player fires a small laser beam that bounces off the mirrored chess pieces. If it hits the non-mirrored surface of a piece, that piece is taken by the player. A player wins when the opposing player’s king piece is illuminated.

Meet Dominic Shepherd Lead Window-Cleaning Tech and High-Level Gamer

Dominic Shepherd, our lead window-cleaning technician, has been a member of the All-Clean! SoftWash team since November 2016. He’s an expert at his role and identifies three main reasons for his continued success and enjoyment: his affinity for the work, the company culture, and most of all the customers.

meant to be a window-cleaning tech. I wake up every day excited to go to work. Most people aren’t so lucky. All-Clean! is the best company I’ve ever worked for. Everyone works together, and we all believe in the importance of world-class customer service.” Dominic wants to pay special tribute to scheduling and logistics teams, who make his job easy and fun. Because of their skills, he can spend his days in the field doing what he loves best. When he’s not working, Dominic enjoys singing, making music, and playing online multiplayer games. Currently, he’s exploring the post- apocalyptic wasteland of “Fallout 76.” In the gaming world, the phrase “git gud” (a modification of “get good”) refers to the process of becoming a competent player. Dominic is already plenty “gud” at his job. We haven’t figured out a way to apply arcade-style scoring to window cleaning just yet — but if we did there’s no doubt he would have the world record.

“The most rewarding part of my job,” Dominic says, “is the chance to serve people from all walks of life. We get to experience different cultures just by visiting homes. It’s an honor and privilege to be invited onto somebody’s property, and I always strive to be a model guest.”

Of course, Dominic isn’t just there to visit; he and his squad have a job to do. “It might sound corny,” he adds, “but I really feel like I was
