Growing up in the early 1990’s I have fond memories of playing Grabbin’ Grasshoppers when I was young. After so many years the question becomes how well has the game held up? I think the game would still be quite fun for children, but it is only a quick distraction for adults.
In Maximum Throwdown the object of the game is to throw cards in order to increase the number of symbols showing on your cards while covering up your opponent’s symbols. While the game can be fun at times, it is not a particularly deep experience.
Can you win the affection of the princess/prince? In Love Letter, a simple filler card game, players try to vie for the love of the princess/prince by utilizing various members of the court to deliver their love letter. While the game is slightly overrated in my opinion, it is still a very good game.
Being on the air since 2001, The Amazing Race has become a staple in some families television schedules for a long time. Being a fan of the show myself, I wanted the Amazing Race game to be good. Unfortunately but not surprisingly, the Amazing Race Board Game is not very good.
Are you ready for some Pig Pong? No not Ping Pong but Pig Pong. Pig Pong is a 1986 game created by Milton Bradley where players use a pig in order to blow air to push the ball onto the other side of the net. Pig Pong may be a children’s game but is is surprisingly more enjoyable for adults than you would expect.
Sid Sackson is a well known board game designer. With over 100 titles to his name, Sid Sackson made a lot of games in his career. One of his best reviewed games was Bazaar. Based on the box I wasn’t expecting much from Bazaar. After playing I was surprised to find that Bazaar is a simple game that has more strategy to it than you would expect.
