Hasbro’s Bop It! Tetris® Version Is Just As Great (and fun) As You Would Think

Bop It Tetris_Left_13

For the first time ever, BOP IT! is joining forces with one of the top gaming brands of all time, TETRIS®! This all-new light game challenges you to match the iconic TETRIS shapes as the challenges get faster and faster. With hundreds of puzzles and both solo and social play, BOP IT! TETRIS provides endless fun!

This game is a lot of fun. My family and I have played with Bop It! literally for years and love every edition that comes out. It really is a great for the kids as well as the grown ups. It’s exciting and fast paced. You use your eyes, hands, and mind. You get really into it, a little fidgety, but in a good way. The kids really get a kick out of it. They can play over and over again.

On top of all that Hasbro decided to add, literally, an all-time great game in Tetris. You have a winning combination through and through. Hasbro really knows how to mix the old and new, plus the real world games with video games. They have people that know what to do and how to do it. This is no exception. I would highly recommend this as it’s a perfect bridge between kids in the tablet/video game age and us “old timers” that know and love board games. Family fun for sure.

Requires 3 AA batteries – demo batteries included; Age: 8+; Players: 1 or more; Available: Summer 2013; Approximate Retail Price: $24.99

THE GAME OF LIFE zAPPed From Hasbro – Board Game AND iPad Together

This game is a lot of fun, for kids and grown-ups. It will take you back to when you played the orignal, yet it’s obviously much more “hip” and “current” with the addition of the ipad in the center.  It’s well done and a great way to bridge the zap, I mean gap (sorry, that was bad) between old and new.  It’s a great idea and well done. Can’t wait to see more of these zAPPed games come around.  Here’s a little more info:

Whether they’re played around the kitchen table, on the computer, or on a smart phone – there are many ways to enjoy games!

Simply cue up The Game Of Life zAPPed app on the iPad, place the iPad on the zAPPed game board, and watch as the technology of the app and the game pieces bring the game to life. Players can create and upgrade their own Peg Person and spin The Game of Life virtual spinner. When landing on a zAPPed space on the game board in their brightly colored car, players may unlock special features such as mini games, comical animations or a hilarious clip from “America’s Funniest Videos.”
