My family can get competitive in everything we do...especially when it comes to playing games! Goliath Games and Pressman Toy have a HUGE variety of games to keep your family busy this spring break. Here are a few of our recent additions including two that will get you wet!
Hydro Strike is the game that when you score you not only get a point but you get your opponent wet! It has similar game play to pinball where you have flippers to send the ball to the other side. The triggers are on the grips on each side.
This game can be a tad finicky. We have found the key is to fill the water reservoirs to the very top. Then prime the pump so to speak a few times so that the next tap in the goal area will get your opponent wet. The priming buttons are either red or orange and next to the score slider. A direct hit on the button is what will get your challenger wet. My girls LOVE this game. They play it till each others faces are soaked as well as my countertops. This game is PERFECT for spring break.
Zoom Ball Hydro is straight out of a page from my childhood. Get ready to have more water fun but this time outside! Hold on to one set of handles, while your friend holds the other then alternate opening your arms quickly to send the Zoom Ball over to your friend! Send the Zoom Ball back as quick as you can because you never know when the balloons will pop!
For double the fun we like to fill it up with two water balloons. Just put them in and screw the two halves together. It can be a little challenging to get the hang of when to open your arms to send the ball to the other side but both challengers will quickly get the hang of it. My husband and I even enjoy playing this game because we like to see if we can beat the other one by zooming the ball. Every time we have brought this into the yard to play all the kids on our street come over and join us. It is even fun cheering on the 2 playing!
Wordsearch is a fun word finding game for 2-4 players. This is a fast-paced version of the classic hidden word puzzle ? it turns a solitary activity into a fun group word game as players go on a word search at the same time. Rotate the specially-designed circular board to reveal the word that the players will race to find. Everyone plays at once, and the first player to locate the word marks it with transparent colored tiles. There are even chances for players to remove tiles played by competitors! The player with the most tiles on the board at the end wins.
Lil Sis is only 7 but she can hold her own in this game! I have always loved word search games so I have found that this game is one of my personal favorites. This is a fast paced game that anyone that knows how to read can play.
Tri-Ominos is a game that requires some strategy and focus as you score points to reach 400 first. You score points by matching numbers on the three-sided pieces, totaling up the numbers on your tile and trying to only use tiles in your set. You can score really big with bridges and hexagons!
We like that game has several rounds and that the leader can quickly change with a few quick moves. This game takes longer than a standard game but that is what we really like about it. This Deluxe Tri-Ominos set includes playing pieces that are crystalline with brass spinners making it a little more fancy. You can tell by holding the pieces in your hand that these are quality pieces that are meant to last for decades.
These games have already kept my girls busy for hours and based off their reactions I know they will be games they want to play for years to come. We have already put Tri-Ominos into our family game night rotation since it is such a great game! So have some Spring Break Fun With Family Games from Pressman Toy and Goliath Games!
