Twister by Hasbro.
Hasbro games have been around for many years and have a good reputation for great quality games at reasonable prices and twister is no exception. It is a great game that all the family can enjoy and is a great quality product. It is hardy and robust and lasts for years, this one I have right now is around ten years old.
This is another traditional game that I had as a kid and then purchased for my two boys, and I'm pleased I did. It is designed for two or more players but I would say a maximum of four players unless the players are small. The more players there are the more difficult the game becomes. It also says it's recommended for people six years and over but my two and half year old son plays it with help and he enjoys it immensely.
Twister is one of those game that no matter how old you are, you want to at least try and join in, well at least until joints refuse to allow you too. It's a great game for kids and adults alike. When I was still studying this became our drinking game and you can all imagine how it turned out ...lol. However now I am a sensible mum who plays this with her kids....it's true...honest!!!
Well the game consists of a large white plastic mat which is around six foot by six foot and has printed on it twenty four coloured dots, six of each blue, red, yellow and green. There is also a hard cardboard spinner which is spun by hand and each corner has a left or right hand or left or right foot option and also the four coloured dots. When the spinner is spun the player whose turn it is has to comply with the instructions, without toppling over which is more difficult than it sounds, even sober, and believe me!
For example: Left foot red or right hand green.
Each player takes a turn in order, and you can soon end up a real pickle. Usually collapsing in a heap or being force to have your head under a rather unpleasant arm pit, or worse...yuck!!
This is a great game, but also good for exercise and increases flexibility, balance and stamina, so it has benefits too. For the younger players it also encourages colour recognition, and teaches left and right too, it's an all-rounder game.
The game does require space in order to play because the mat is quite large and you obviously want room to move too, but if you have the space I highly recommend buying it because the fun and laughs this game has given my family are immense and the cost was relatively small. I purchased mine some years ago and can't recall the price but I have just ordered a new one from Amazon at a price of £12.35 with free delivery. The reason for the repurchase is because the dots have worn down and they all have white spots in the centre where the colour has worn away. The spinning board is also looking worse for wear and tatty around the edges so I thought it needed refreshing.
This will come out again this Christmas and will no doubt be a huge success just as its predecessor has for years. The game comes in a very hardy cardboard box which has lasted the years we have owned it, and although tatty still keeps the game neat and tidy in the cupboard.
My kids absolutely love this game as does my friends when they visit. We play board games quite often but more so at Christmas when we play with visiting family and friends. It is huge fun that is guaranteed to bring a family together with laughter and fun. The game requires no batteries which at Christmas are like gold dust in my house so this is an added bonus in my book.
Summary: Fun and amusing game that is sure to make everyone laugh.
