What we received:
Tapple: Fast Word Fun for Everyone
Wonky: The Crazy Cubes Card Game
First let tell you a little bit about Tapple. This game is a circle with alphabet letters you can push down as you play. It is made of plastic. The game requires two AA batteries (which are not included). It comes with a set of cards for game play that are conveniently stored in the base of the game.
To play a category is picked from the cards, then you turn the game on and it keeps time for you between turns. Each player goes around the game trying to come up with a word/phrase for the category from the letters available before time runs out.
So if your category was movies - answers might be
T- Toy Story
You keep going until all the players are eliminated and one is left standing.
Our Thoughts on Tapple:
We LOVED this game! It was easy to play, yet you had to think quick on your feet. Some categories were more challenging and they even had an option to pick your own category. It was easily modified for younger kids (you have a lot of lead way with the categories interpretations.) You could also keep the sound off if it bothered you - but we had no troubles with it. This will be a game we play often!
Our Thoughts on Wonky
We had a lot of fun playing this one. My 13 year old and I tested this one out - it was clear that logic helps you win. You have to develop your strategy - do you want to make it easy for your to stack the blocks or try to trip up your opponent by taking a risk and stacking 'wonky'. That really adds to the game play if you don't play it safe the whole time.
This was a really fun review. I love having family time and game night is a perfect way to get everyone off electronics, gathered around and engaged. If your looking for some new games to play - you can't go wrong with either of these.
