Three PlayMonster Games the Whole Family Will Love + That Make Great Gifts this Holiday Season! (Review) #games #toys #PlayMonsterFun

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

If your kids loved the "Yeti in My Spaghetti" game from PlayMonster, which was a popular game for kids last Christmas, then you will want to check out the new game "Yeti, Set, Go" which take the Yeti and meatballs to a whole new level.

The original "Yeti in My Spaghetti" you had to keep the Yeti floating in the spaghetti, as you took turns pulling a piece of spaghetti from the bowl.  If the Yeti fell into the bowl, you lost and the game ends.

In the new "Yeti, Set, Go" game, the Yeti is back, but this time players are are kicking meatballs up the hill.  Each player has a Yeti that they team up with.  The Yeti's role is to kick the meatball, while the player has to set the aim up right before the Yeti kicks the meatball.  Leading up to the top of the mountain are ledges, which you have to get your meatballs to sit on. 

"Hey, let’s kick some meatballs!™

Kick your meatballs onto the mountain!
You and your Yeti are a team…a mean, lean kickin’ team! It’s up to you to aim Yeti and then bop him on the head to make him start kickin’ meatballs, trying to get them onto the mountain ledges! The first to get all four on wins!
Contents: 5-Piece Snowy Meatball Mountain with Center Connector, Flag, 4 Kickin’ Yetis, 24 Meatballs, Rules

No batteries required; some assemble required. For 2 to 4 players."

The person who gets four meatballs on the mountain ledges is the winner.  The game is not as easy as it sounds, as meatballs will be flying, and tumbling down the hill.

My girls really enjoyed this game, and loved how they each got to control their own kicking Yeti.  And, who doesn't love meatballs?  This game takes skill and a little bit up luck.  But, it also provides hours of laughs and play time in game perfect for the whole family to play.  We have only had this game for a couple weeks, but it has become a must-play game during our Saturday night family game nights.  And, when we aren't playing on Saturdays, the girls are pulling this game from the game shelf, along with "Yeti in My Spaghetti" to have a fun-filled Yeti Spaghetti and Meatball afternoon of gaming.

In addition to the new "Yeti, Set, Go", the folks at PlayMonster also released "Don't Rock the Boat" which is probably showing up on your kids' wish lists for Santa.  My girls keep seeing a commercial for this game, and before we were sent a copy of the game to review, they were hoping that Santa would bring it, as it looked cool.

"Balance Yer Mateys or Overboard Ye Go!
Arrrrr ye ready for some fun? Take turns trying to balance your pirate pieces on the ship, but if you rock the boat and send some mateys overboard, ye be a landlubber! For 2 to 4 players.

Ages 5 & Up

Contents: 3-Piece Ship with 3 Masts, 2-Piece Water Wave, Balancing Rod, 16 Playing Pieces (10 Pirate Penguins, Canon, Treasure Chest, Ship Wheel, Anchor, Octopus, Crab), Rules"

As you can see from the video above, the game is all about skill and having a steady hand as you place penguins, treasure chests, anchors, octopus and more to the pirate's ship.  But, be careful as you don't want to rock the boat and have all the items placed tip over and fall off. If you can successfully add your pirate pieces to the ship without making it rock or tip, then you are the winner.

This has become a family favorite in our house.  You can really go crazy trying to keep your hand/arm steady as you place your pirate pieces. But, one small shake or second guess on where to place a piece can make the boat tip and the pieces go flying off.  I highly recommend this game for kids to play, and one that the whole family will sit down and want to play together, time and again.

Dog lovers will go crazy for the new Pass the Pup game, which features a cute cuddly pup that kids will pass around in a circle.  

It is kind of like hot potato where it plays music and you don't know when it will stop.  But, unlike hot potato, the person who is left holding the pup when the music stops has to shake, wag or bark like a dog. :-)

"Pass the Pup is a fast-paced game of howling, fetching and tail wagging. Players press the Pup’s belly to start the music and then pass the puppy around the circle. No one knows when the music will stop. But when it does, the player caught holding the Pup will have to take a card and start acting like the dog on the card—maybe by growling, fetching, scratching or more! Woof! Woof! For 2 or more players, ages 3 and up.

Contents: Pup, 14 Cards, Rules
3 Button Cell, included."

This fast paced game of howling, fetching and tail wagging, is the perfect game for parties, rain or snow days, or as a quick game to entertain kids ages 3+.  I find that during our homeschooling if I take breaks in between teaching and pull out a game, the girls stay more engaged.  They love playing a quick game and clearing their heads, and each and every game we play, especially ones from PlayMonster leave us all laughing and smiling. :-)

So, with the holidays fast approaching, why not consider adding one of these three new games from PlayMonster to your shopping list to pick up for your kids. They will all make great addition to your family game nights, and are perfect to pull out for snow days, or when your kids come telling you they have nothing to do and are bored.  To learn more about these and other great PlayMonster game, perfect for kids of all ages, and that the whole family will enjoy playing together, head on over to https://www.playmonster.com today.  Then, get ready for a fun and memorable family game night!
