Hasbro Games Review

Don't you just love summer?!?!  Summer means LOTS of family time and FUN!  Hasbro has created some fabulous new games that are perfect for families!

We had the privilege of reviewing several of their new games...  Here is our review of two of them...

SORRY! REVENGE is a card game for ages 6+.  Mallory LOVED it but definitely needed a little help at first with some of the cards with words.  This game is great for working on mental addition and subtraction skills, plus it involves some problem solving skills.  In this game, you take turns to play number and action cards that will change the play pile's total points.  Get the pile to 21 without going over to get one of your pawn cards home.  But, the fun catch is that someone could play a SORRY! cards and steal your win!  This is a portable, fun SORRY! game for the whole family. 
Mallory was excited to learn how to play.

The game includes cards and a very detailed instruction sheet.

Mallory studied her cards.  (The card holder is something we already owned.)

And, Mallory really did WIN!!!

The SORRY! REVENGE game retails for approximately $6.99 and is available at mass merchandise retailers.

Another game we got to review was Pictureka!  This is a poplular new picture-finding race to find wacky images hidden in the game tiles.  The first person to spot a silly drawing matching the task on the card can yell "Pictureka!" or "I found it!"  This is a visual hide and seek game.  Collect all six mission cards and the title of "Pictureka! Champion" is won. 

We really enjoyed this game!  Mallory is GREAT at it!  This game reminds me of the Where's Waldo books, but the neat thing about it is you can flip, rotate, or switch locations of tiles and reveal a new set of images to discover.  The game is wonderful for visual stimulation.

Pictureka! is for 2 or more players ages 6 and up.  It retails for approximately $22.99 and is available at mass merchandise retailers nationwide.

Thank you, Hasbro, for the awesome family games you continue to create!  We love these and look forward to what's to come in the future.  For my blog readers, I have a review of Pop Goes Froggio, Yahtzee Hands Down, and Mille Bornes coming soon!
