We love to play games together as a family, and it is always nice when we get a game that is a revision of an old favorite. It makes the game both familiar and different. Bop It! is a classic game that challenges your reaction time, as you follow commands to score points. Hasbro has just come out with a new twist to the game, Bop It! Smash. In this game the object is trap a rapidly moving light in the center of the game by smashing the ends of the game together. You score points based on how close the light is to the center when you smash it.
This is a fun game for all ages, since it is simple to learn, but hard to master! The game has three modes, Solo, PassIt and Multiplayer, so you can play with any where from one to six players. The game is lightweight and kind of addictive, since you just keep thinking one more time will get you a better score. I think this game would be perfect for a party, since it would be fun to pass it around and see who succeeds and fails.
The toy does have a narrator who makes comments on how well you are doing, like “Try Harder” and things like that. This gets a little old after a while, and it would be nice if there was a mute button! You can turn the sound down to a lower level, but not turn it off completely. But if you are looking for a fun game to give as a gift this would be an excellent choice, and provide hours of entertainment.
Here is video we made of my son playing it!
