MB Games Twister
Advantages: Fun for all ages, Classic, Ice breaker
Disadvantages: VERY EXPESNIVE FOR WHAT YOU ACTUALLY RECIEVE, NEEDS TO BE CHEAPER
If you don't know what twister is then I will explain, Basically you have a large square plastic sheet with rows of 4 different colours, Green. Blue. Red and Yellow. You then have a spinner which has the options, left hand, right hand, left foot, right foot. Where ever the spinner lands, that person has to follow the instruction. The spinner also has the colours on so it will tell you for example "left hand green" so that person has to follow the instruction. You need 2 or more players to play but I believe the game works best with around 4 people and a fifth person spinning the board and telling people what to do. You can now imagine that this game involves people bending and twisting over each other to reach the certain colour they need and trying to place that body part on that section! If you fall over you are out, the last person standing is the winner.
The price of this game is around £13 which is rather expensive. All you recieve is the box, a plastic mat and a spinner board. you don't recieve a lot for your money. I still like the game though and this is why it is worth paying for it because the hours of fun you have is well worth the money you pay.
This game is designed for young children. I dont think it is just for young kids though as at most parties I have been too the game comes out. Its the perfect party game after a few drinks as people find it hialrious and fall over each other. The game is for all ages. The older generation may struggle to get into positions younger people can. My dad nearly put his back out playing this game so you must be careful. It is a safe game if played in a safe way. On the box it says it is for ages 5-8 which I think is really wrong.
It is such a simple game, but it does bring out the fun in people. It helps you become more flexible and may help your balance! All ages can enjoy this game, its such a classic. Twister is the perfect party game and gets the laughs going. It is also a great ice breaker. Twister gets people laughing. I would recommend you get this game for your cupboards because on a rainy day it can really help.
I am going to give twister a 4 star review. I really love the idea of the game and also I love playing the game. The main thing that lets twister down is the price £14 for a plastic mat is a lot and I think this game should be made for a cheaper price. The mat isnt very thick either which means eventually it will probably break. I would however recommend you get it, the price is irrevelant if you love the game. Thanks for reading my review on twister! It can be great fun :)
