Family Game Night 4 Review
"Experience your favorite Hasbro brand games like never before with new fun twists on the popular games you know and love!"
Mr Potato Head is back to host in this fun filled family friendly game. It is available for Wii, Xbox 360 with Kinect and PS3 (Playstation Move).
Family Game Night 4 contains 5 different games for you to choose from to play.
First is Connect Four Basketball - In this game you play against your opponent and try to get 4 balls in a row on the giant connect 4 board. Your opponents is also trying to get 4 in a row, using different colored balls, while trying to stop you from getting 4 in a row. It is a fun game of strategy.
Next is Sorry! Sliders. Sorry was one of my favorite games as a child and I still enjoy it. In this game, the object has a similar premise to shuffle board. The object of the game is to slide your piece down the on screen board game. Each team has two sliders. The object is to land your slider on the right part of the board to earn points. You can also push your opponent’s slider out of the way to gain an advantage.
Scrabble Flash - In this game you have to try to make as many words as possible using the 5 letters that you are given in the amount of time given. You can not use the same words your opponent makes. The person with the most points wins. The longer the word, the more points you get.
Bop It Boptagon - This is a very active game in which you are given actions that you have to repeat. The actions include bopping, pulling, kicking and twisting. If you make a mistake before your opponent, they will receive a point. The first team with 2 points wins the round.
And, finally there is Yatzhee Bowling. In this game the players have to bowl to knock over dice pins in order to uncover the dice numbers. Once you have knocked all of the pins down you can choose to keep all of them, none of them, or as many of them as you’d like. Then you have one more chance to bowl again and get new numbers. Whoever has a higher combination wins. It is just like regular Yahtzee but in a bowling form.
You win Monopoly Cash after each game! I had a blast playing this with my son and nephew. We spent hours playing. I highly recommend this for hours of fun for everyone!
The game is reasobably priced under $40 and is available online and at most toy and video game stores.
