Make Your Next Holiday Gathering Even More Fun When You Share FLIPSIDE and The Original Tiny Hands Challenge Game from Moose Games - They Also Make Great Last Minute Gift Ideas! (Review)

Every year when the holidays roll around, I like to put out fun games, including hand held ones for family and friends to enjoy when they come to visit.  We are a board game family and love hosting game nights in our house.  And, what better time to have an impromptu game night than when the house is filled with guests for the holidays.  This year, I will be sharing two fun games from Moose Games with everyone -- one they can play on their own or challenge others, and another that will have everyone in stitches laughing and wanting to get the game for themselves. 

The first game, which has become an instant hit in our house since receiving the other day to review from the kind folks at Moose Games (an extension of the award-winning Moose Toys brand), is their popular FLIPSIDE game.  

"A hand-held electronic pattern and color memorization game with a unique twist-and-slide feature that allows players to challenge themselves and their friends with four modes of play. Players must flip and slide the colored blocks around the center screen so that each brightly-colored cube matches with the corresponding center lights."

This game reminds me of Simon mixed with Rubik's Cube, and it is so addicting and oh so fun.  Once you pick up and try out, you will not want to put it down.  

And, the best part about this hand-held game is that there are different game modes which you can select, and each stores the highest score, so you can play and then pass off to someone else and see if they can beat your score.

I have been challenging my entire family with FLIPSIDE, and we are all about the memory and speed round game options. They are the most challenging and really make you concentrate if you want to get the highest score.  

This is definitely one of those games that kids and adults of all ages will fall in love with and continue to play long after the Christmas tree is down.  It would make a great addition to stockings, and best to buy everyone their own FLIPSIDE, as they will get serious about it and want to train and practice the different game modes before coming together to challenge each other. :-)  I know this as my girls have been hogging it from me to practice, just so that they can get better and take over the top spot on the scoreboard.

In addition to FLIPSIDE, the kind folks at Moose Games (an extension of the award-winning Moose Toys brand) also sent along their hilarious The Original Tiny Hands Challenge Game, which would make for a great holiday party team vs team game to play.  The game is geared towards ages 8+ and can be played with 4 to 10 players. 

It includes everything you need to play this game all inside the box, so you just have to pull it down from the game shelf and gather your teams around the table, to have big fun for everyone.

"A hilarious TEAM vs. TEAM party game where players must compete in outrageously fun physical stunts using nothing but the included TINY HANDS! Can you catch a ball, turn over a playing card and serve someone a drink? Sounds easy right? But it’s trickier and funnier when all you have is two Tiny Hands to do it with."

As you can see in the image above, you have two sets of tiny hands to work with to complete different challenged presented on playing cards. There is a pair of tiny hands and another pair of even tinier hands, to make things even harder and hilarious.  If you love completing physical challenges ans stunts, then you will have a blast playing The Original Tiny Hands Challenge Game.  Do you think you can use the tiny hands and catch a ball, hop around and then pass it off to another player who has to skip to the finish line?  It may sound easy, but once you get set up and hold the tiny hands, you realize it isn't so easy.  And, then the laughs start as you fumble around trying to pick up the dropped ball with the tiniest of hands.

We played this game over the weekend as a family.  My husband pairs up with my youngest daughter, and I was on a team with my oldest daughter.  We had so much fun performing the stunts...but, the best part was being able to watch the other team perform the stunt...that was the funniest part of this game, as everyone really gets into the game, and when you see that they are working with tiny hands, you can't help but laugh out loud.

There are over 150 activity cards included with the game making this a fun game to play time and time again knowing that the challenges will not all be the same.  And, if you have a larger group of people to play it with, it will be even more fun.  I already told my family that this is a must play game when family and friends come to visit for the holidays.  They will have no idea what is store for them when they gather around the table after our holiday meal to play games.  I will definitely have my camera read for photos of everyone and their tiny hands completing not so easy stunts.

You can find The Original Tiny Hands Challenge Game at Target stores, as well as over at Amazon.  Why not pick up this game and fill those moments of uncomfortable silence  (you know we all experience this when we gather with friends and family we haven't seen all year long, or that don't get along), and have everyone laughing and having fun.  This is one of those games that will create lasting memories and be talked about for years to come.
