Pie Face Showdown! Game

The original Pie Face game was so much fun that it created a demand for even more fun games along the same line. With that in mind comes the Pie Face Showdown! Game – part of Walmart’s Hottest 25 Toys of 2016 list.

This one takes the same fun of the original game, but adds a twist. It features players competing against each other in a showdown style that’s loads of fun and packs plenty of laughter for whoever is involved.

You can have this great game for a family game night, or you can get together with a group of friends for some hilarious times. It makes a great team against team game. The game is easy to set up and it’s a fast paced game, too – so there’s no boredom or kids waiting impatiently for their turn to play.

Once you get the game set up and ready to go, each one of the players has to put the whipped cream on the hand of the game. This whipped cream does not come with the purchase of the game, so you’ll have to buy that separately.

In case you don’t want to deal with the stickiness of whipped cream, you just use the sponge that’s included with the game, but most people do prefer to use the whipped cream.

When it’s time to play the game, each of the players gets into position by putting his chin on the chin rest that’s associated with his face side. The instructions have it so that the players count to three for the game to begin, but if you have children who do squabble over games, you might want to have an adult handle the counting to avoid any bickering about the count.

Once the count of three is reached, each player presses the button. The button is what operates the throwing arm. This arm can swing from one direction to the other so that it’s aimed at either player – and pressing the button controls this.

It’s hilarious fun as each player rapidly pushes the button trying to get the arm to swing toward his opponent’s face rather than his own. Once the arm reaches a certain position, it will shoot up and splat whichever player the arm is aimed at.

The player who manages to escape getting a face full of whipped cream or the wet sponge wins the game. The purchase of this game includes instructions on play, the pie thrower, splash card masks, the sponge and the chin rests. The game is easy to clean once you’re done playing with it. It’s suitable for children three and older. Two people at a time can play the game.

Dr. Eureka Speed Logic Game

Dr. Eureka Speed Logic Game is a cool little brainteaser. It contains a kit of cute test tubes and colored balls, and you’re expected to solve a puzzle based on a drawn card. With this review, we’ll go over a few of my thoughts on this fun game, including the price, types of things to expect, likes and dislikes, and where it can be found! Whether you’re a fan of first-person shooters or online browser games, there is something for everyone in the Dr. Eureka Speed Logic game!

How much?
The cost of the game ranges anywhere from $13-$20 based on the marketplace. Depending on whether brick and mortar stores are more appropriate for you or online shopping is a better idea, you may get better deals based on where you shop. The price point is fair and justifiable for the amount of play time you receive with the game.

Who Would Buy It?
On the package, the game states that it’s ideal for all ages and I agree with that! When played with a few kids with a lot of range in their ages, they caught on quickly, and though the puzzles can be tricky to solve, we all had a lot of fun. It’s one of those things the kids love to pull out and play when we have guests just to see the adults struggle with the puzzle! Brainteasers are something fun for everyone, so the mixture of puzzles on the drawn cards can be used to create an endless amount of games to play for young and old players alike!

Things We Liked About It
The game also says on the package that the game can be played alone, and it’s pretty easy to understand why when you understand the concept of the game. They are fun puzzles to solve when there is nothing to do or if you want to have a quick little fix in order to kill time.

Things We Did Not Like About It
The only complaint we seem to have is the repetition, as it becomes a little difficult to play for extended periods of time or on concurrent days, mostly because once you’ve seen the cards and puzzles they have to offer, you’ve run out of options. You could remedy that by adding more colors or even creating your own puzzles!

Is It Worth the Money?
Absolutely! The game is extremely fun when there is time to play it, and, regardless of skill level or interest in games, everyone can have fun when they play it. It’s a great investment for a rainy day or during visits to family and friends for some quick entertainment.

Where Can I Buy It?
For brick and mortar stores, Toys R Us may be your best bet. Dr. Eureka is largely located online, so stores like eBay, Amazon, Jet, and Miniature Market offer some of the best prices for you. Additionally, many stores offer an ordering service to order online and pick up in the store so there is no wait!

Final Thoughts
All in all, this is a wonderfully solid game that offers a lot to consumers. Puzzles can be a great way to keep your mind sharp, and it gives you the tools to create an even greater method of testing your wits!

Dohdles – one of Forbe’s Top 10 Toys for 2015!

Long gone are the days when games simply involved players moving a marker around a board. Today’s games are more interactive and a lot more fun to play. One of the fun games for families or as a party game is Dohdles by Thames and Kosmos.
These Dohdles are creations that are made by the players from dough. These creations are meant to be riddles to be solved but not solved too quickly. Each player gets to use his imagination to create a sculpture that has the other players guessing. This game is recommended for ages 10-15.
The creations are often hilarious as each player who makes the creation interprets from his creative mind what he thinks it should look like. The shapes of the Dohdles can be something like an everyday object or like part of a body such as a nose.
You don’t have to be an expert to play. You just have to have an imagination and be willing to laugh. The trick is to create your Dohdle as well as you can, but not make it so good that the other players all know right away what it’s supposed to be.
For people who have absolutely no creative sculpting talents at all, you’ll still be able to create items in certain shapes. The game works by the players being able to figure out what their opponent has made with their sculpture.

If you guess what it is, then you get points. But you also get points if the other opponents can’t all figure out what it was that you made with your sculpting clay. You want to make it so some people can figure out what it is, but not everyone – because if everyone guesses what it was that you made, then you don’t get any points.
But if no one guesses what you made, then you don’t get any points there either. The game is played with four rounds of the opponents trying to figure out what it is that you created.
When it’s your turn to play, you’re allowed to question your opponents about what they created with their sculptor to help you figure out what it is. But you’re not allowed to ask open-ended questions.
These have to be questions that can be answered with either a yes or a no. You can also ask for a letter in the creation. When you’ve been given some of these clues, if you decide that you know what the opponent’s Dohdle is, you put your guessing cube into the funnel.
This funnel sorts the cubes and sends them out. The first cube out is the player who’s allowed to take the first guess. Anytime that you identify what your opponent made, you get to move forward. The game can be played multiple times – because the clay doesn’t harden even after repeated use. It’s a guessing game that’s suitable for 3 to 6 players.
Sounds like fun to me!
