Christmas 2015 Winning Moves Games Review and Giveaway

I've been working with Winning Moves Games for some time now. They're a maker of classic card games and board games, puzzles, action games and adult party games. In the past, we've reviewed their The Game of Life: Dog's Edition and the Rubik's Void Puzzle, among several other items. With Christmas around the corner, we have some new games of theirs to review and giveaway. 
Of course, Winning Moves Games being Winning Moves Games, their new games are actually classics. For instance, the Risk game we got to play with is a reproduction of the 1959 version of the game, not the newer looking version. Upwords was still the familiar Upwords. Moose Caboose was simple for my eight year old but still fun to play, and lastly Water Works reminded me of several games found in the app store to play on my mobile. Many apps get their origins not from any originality but instead from games from the olden times, revamped for the new online world.
Does anyone here have any recollection of playing this when you were a child? It is just your basic water pipe game were you play against an opponent with the hopes of the water eventually making its way out. To make things harder, that last spout has to be pointed downwards. I always liked the little wrenches.
The demo video shows off Risk a little better than any still picture. It is rated for 8+ but I might say 10+, or at least a different personality than my son. Maybe after a few more plays he'll like it more. He is starting to learn a little more geography though.

And, now it's your turn to win a few. Our giveaway runs through 12/25/15 at 11:59pm and is open to US residents who are 18+. The prize, a $75 gift certificate of goodies from Winning Moves Games, about enough to get all the games shown above or your own selection of goodies. You might also consider getting the Connect 4 Twist & Turn game or Fish, Fish, Squish, the latter we reviewed by in April.
