Excellent family fun,
This review is from: Hasbro Family Game Night (Wii) (Video Game)
We love this game - there is something for everyone. Our family has a 5, 7 and 10yr old and 2 40-somethings, and we can all play together (actually only 4 players at a time) or individually. All the games have traditional versions, or souped up versions. Yahtzee, for example, has Wild Dice in Advanced which you can change to show the number you want. Battleships has the Traditional version (with great sound effects); Salvo, where you have as many shots as ships remaining in your fleet; or Customise where you can pick and choose types of bombs and potential hazards. Also, the kids love customising their own games room, to which their trophies and awards are added.
We enjoy all the games with the exception of Sorry!, which we couldn't get the hang of. Presumably if you're familiar with this game anyway it will be a piece of cake. The only reason I haven't given a full five stars for the overall rating is because some of the list of acceptable words on the Boggle game are a tad bizarre. This is fine for the adults as we disregard words like 'Sneathy' (I'm not sure if that is actually on there, but there are many stranger) but the young uns are likely to be confused or misled! That said, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this game.
