Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Twister is a very simple game that can become very complicated as the players can easily get tied up in knots. The mat that forms the playing surface is decorated with six circles each of red, yellow, green and blue. The mat is durable, waterproof with a wipe-clean surface but it can also be a little slippery so care must be taken. The spinner arrow is easy to assemble and to use.

An appointed person spins the spinner and calls out instructions for the players to follow, such as: "left hand blue, right foot red". The players follow the directions, moving their hands and feet to the relevant circles and try not to fall over--a knee or an elbow on the ground and they're out. For young children the challenge is not only not to fall over but also to remember left from right and colour recognition.

As well as the perfect ice-breaker for children's parties, Twister is also very popular with adults as the challenge to reach all the circles and remain upright becomes harder the less supple you are (or the more you've had to drink...)

This is a game to suit all ages--children with adults, children with children or adults with adults. Whichever the combination the end result will be plenty of family fun. Six years up, two or more players. --Phillippa Reece

Manufacturer's Description

You're sure to get yourself in a twist! Spin the spinner and make your move, placing the correct part of your body on one of the circles of the colour demanded by the spinner. Twist yourself around all the other players to make sure you reach your circle. The last person standing wins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silly fun for everyone! (Over 2ft 6in) 17 Mar 2006
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, If you've been on Mars for the last few decades Twister is the game where have a large plastic sheet with big coloured dots on it and a board with a spinny pointy thing. Realistically you need at least three people to play, but you can just about manage with two. Especially if one is a contortionist!
Spread the sheet on the floor and give the board to the third player. He spins the arm which dictates which limb the other players have to place on which coloured dot. Easy-peasy. Until about the third move.
We have nine kids. We have had Twister for about 16 years. We have had, what must add up to, months of enormous and ridiculous fun with it. It just is one of the simplest and most fun games on the market.
The other stuff: Well, don't pay too much attention to the blurb. It has absolutly no educational value at all. Any child that doesn't know it's left from right and it's colours is almost certainly too short to play - though that shouldn't stop them from trying. And anyway, in the middle of the chaos that is Twister, they are not going to have time to worry about it. In this house when short people play they always end up getting lots of help, and cheating is standard. I've given it 2 stars anyway, because it seems to be a contemporary fixation that everything must be educational.
My only complaint is on the durability side. The 'arm' comes off the board too easily. In 16 years we've had three Twisters.Then again, given the amount of use they've had maybe that's not such bad going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twister Game 21 Jan 2010
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A good fun game for all the family. Everyone joined in at Christmas, although, the kids found it easier than the adults. We all had a laugh but it's not a game to play for a great length of time; the amusement wears off after about half an hour.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless classic! 25 Dec 2007
By AMG VINE VOICE
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Twister is a game of physical skill, invented by Neil W. Rabens and Charles F. Foley in 1969.

The game includes a 167cm by 135cm plastic sheet covered with 6 blue, 6 green, 6 red and 6 yellow circles, which is layed on the floor. The game also includes a spinner, mounted onto a board that's divided into quarters. Each quater says either left foot, right foot, left hand, or right hand.

To play: After the spinner's been spun, a combination is called out {E.G. left foot - green} and players must move their hand or foot to that circle. Due to the limited number of coloured circles, players will often be required to put themselves in uncomfortable and unbalanced positions, which eventually results in someone's fall. No 2 players can share a circle (rules are different for more people) and the game is best played with socks being worn by all players.
Any amount of people can play Twister, but you always need someone to spin the spinner.
I gave Twister a 4 star durability rating because the spinner comes of the board a bit too easily and I gave it a 1 star educational rating, because the only thing you learn from it is how flexible you are!

Fun for all the family,
Utterly fabulous!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun but not durable 9 Sep 2010
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Durability - it's a sheet of thick plastic, and has been slightly torn after the first use.

The game becomes more fun as more people join in - 3 or 4. To be able to take part, I'd say you need to be a bit flexible and creative. If you are a gymnast, you'd win all the games and would find it pretty boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice game 5 April 2009
Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My children love this game, even the 4 year old can join. He "reads" the commands in English (we are German) and the other 3 get twisted. Granny enjoys it, too!

My 5 year old son loved this, and wanted to play it none stop. Im sure we all remember as kids it was a favourite with us too, a timeless classic which will always receive a few laughs. It was good for teaching him his right and left too

5.0 out of 5 stars More Twister please by Hugo 29 April 2007
By Alessi Lover TOP 500 REVIEWER
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son aged five loves this game, I know that the age range is from 6 years on the actual box, but five is an ideal age to start trying it out.

It really gets small children to recognise colours and the shape of a circle without even thinking that they are learning something, you know what they say if they enjoy playing with something and it also teaches them something then it cann't be too bad a toy. (Cann't remember who said that, but from somewhere in my distant memory I can remember that being said when I was a child).

The game is quite robust even when five year old and 15 year old daughter and friends join in, it doesn't tear or rip and best of all it can be used outside in the summer, so instead of the children being couch potatoes, especially during the summer hols, get them outside with this, whilst you can have some peace inside without them!

The game can also be played with just two people, both of mine also play together and wear themselves out.

Great to take on a camping or caravanning holiday, small to pack but endless fun.

Good for adults too after a barbie, but not too much alchol though as could be a trip to casualty needed.

Glad I bought it as it did produce a good many laughs and gymnastics at the same time.

Quite a good priced game, if you think of the amount of times and people who can play it, without loosing lots of little pieces, great for a birthday present, as then when it comes to a quiet moment and prizes have run out, you know when younger ones want more and more prizes let them play this.

Have noticed that as of 5/5/07 when I was in Toysarus that they were doing a deal of buy any MB Game and get a free 12.
