Bop-It! Smash Review and Giveaway!

We have been playing a Bop It! Smash around the house for the last two weeks. Let me just warn your before you enter to win one or buy one, you just might get addicted. :0)

Bop It! Smash tests your skill and competitive nature as you attempt to trap and play with light.  This fast action, reaction skill game asks players to trap a rapidly moving light in the center of the game by quickly smashing the ends of the game together. The closer the light is to the center, the more points you score.

You “smash” the two sides together to try an stop the light in the middle of the toy. Anytime you fail to do so, no points are earned and the player looses a “life”. You start with 3 lives once you miss three times your game is over. However, every time a player stops the light in the absolute center, another “life” is awarded (maximum of 3 lives total.)

There are three different ways to play- solo, Pass it or multi-player.

Here is what I like about the game:

  • It’s fun. I knew the boys would love it but I was actually surprised how much THE HUSBAND and I enjoyed it too. It actually has been pretty competitive around here for the last couple weeks. THE HUSBAND currently holds the high score on solo play, but I am confident I will take back the lead soon.
  • It is easy to start and play so the boys can play it without any help.
  • It is easy to take on the go. There are no small pieces or parts to remember/lose. It is easy to grab and easy to share in the car.
  • The volume controls- the sound actually turns down very low  so when we do take it with us in the car it isn’t so loud that it annoys everyone who is not playing!
  • If you don’t play it for about 30 seconds it turns itself off. (Perfect. My boys always forget to turn things off and we are constantly charging batteries around here!)

    My family likes to play Headbands, or Apples to Apples. We get a lot of laughs out of what everyone guesses or the cards used to describe something. We have at least one family game night a week, choosing different games each time! This game looks like fun!
