    Editorial Review

    Even electronic toys have gone extreme. Kids love the original Bop It, an electronic toy that challenges response time to pull, twist, and bop different parts of the toy. The Extreme 2 version adds two more tasks, more sounds, and a taunting, smart-aleck announcer who directs the game. As you get better, the game moves faster until you miss a beat and lose, accompanied by a fair amount of noise and ridicule from the toy. People who don't think they'd ever want to play Bop It Extreme 2 won't be able to put it down; it instills a compulsive need to bop till you drop. It can be played in a group and makes a good party game--even for serious adults. --Lynne Sampson ... Read more

    The Best game!
    Bop it Extreme 2 is the best! My sister got it for her birthday but, I love playing it! Before I could only get 1 or 2 but, now I have 38.
    I play it when I wake up, when I have extra time, & before I go to bed!
    I like all the things you can play on it and, that it has a volume control and, that it tells you what the high score is.
    This game is really fun! People should purchase this item.

    Bop it extreme 2 vs Bop it extreme
    Hi, I'm a 19 years old college student attending UCSD. I live in a suit with other students and we use to hang out, but we got nothing to do. I decided to buy this toy to promote some social interactions. To my surprise, everybody just jumps in and have a blast. We played endless Pass it! games. It REALLY trains your reflex skill. I find it so much fun that I had to write a review, which I rarely do.

    As for the difference between the Bop It Extreme and the Bop It Extreme 2 versions.(I had this question when I buy this toy)
    1) The Bop It Extreme 2 version has 3 levels of volume, while the Bop It Extreme has one LOUD volume.
    2) The Bop It Extreme 2 has an earphone jack for personal enjoyment, while the Bop It Extreme doesn't.
    3) The Bop It Extreme 2 TELLS you at the end your score(i.e. "You scored forty-eght"), while the Bop It Extreme plays different sounds to denote score(i.e. "whistle, whistle, rachet, rachet, rachet, drum, drum, drum, drum"). Hence requiring you to count and decipher which sound worth more points than other.
    4) The Bop It Extreme 2 has more music than the Bop It Extreme as advertised.
    5) The Bop It Extreme 2 has rubber grip and better grip-mold for the Spin it! wheel.
    6) The Bop It Extreme 2 just looks much cooler, hands down! :D

    Playing this game Solo is fun, but get together w/ your friends and you all will have a BLAST!

    NOT soooo great,
    VERY,VERY noisey. It is hard for me to get a high score. They whant you to do it so fast. (Yes, I know a game should be challinging.) And to tell you it takes a odd number of batterys,3 of 'em. One time the batterys got corroded so it made it hard to get out. I never did play with it again. The sound got scratchy too. (...)I do not recomend any of the Bop It toys to anyone.

    So much better then Extreme 1!
    Wow! This is a pretty fun game. The original was so loud and annoying, and the speaker was tinny. Bop it Extreme 2, though a little easier, is so much better. It also has a Bop It button that is less prone to getting accidentally hit.

    EXTREME fun for all ages!!!
    Bought as a gift for my son, the whole family has enjoyed this unique little gizmo. I can't help but think that this must help with thinking skills. Totally portable, it's a favorite at sleep-overs... it's even more popular than Gameboy, and that's saying something. A very healthy family game! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Addictive, Very Fun!
    I am 30 years old and I have been playing Risk for 9 years now. It is a blast playing with a group of your friends, but be prepared to bring a sleeping bag because this game can keep you up until the crack of dawn! It is very addicitive, involves strategy, but that is the best part. Object is to conquor the world with your armies by taking out your opponent's armies. Each player starts out with a few territories scattered throughout the map and the trick is to fortify and defend those territories you need to progress to eventually cover the whole map with your colour. It is tricky that you won't be able to fortify every area you own since you only get so many armies based on how many places you occupy at the start of your turn. Luck also plays a major role - for every attack and every defend you must roll the dice, highest roller is able to keep his army, lowest roller has to take an army off. The more taken off, the weaker his/her regiment becomes. Once she/he loses all his armies on a given space, the attacker then moves in to occupy that space. Once you get comfortable with the game and really good with it, you can make it go a little quicker. There is also a quicky version you can play, which is explained in the manual. Pieces are easy to lose, we usually wrapped our army boxes with elastics or plastic ziploc bags to help avoid this problem. The down part to this game is if a player loses all his armies and territories very early in the game, then he or she pretty much has to sit there for hours watching their friends play and waiting for the game to end. Risk can bring out the worst in people unfortunately, so you may want to rethink about wiping out your best friend, early in the game, even if you can do it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars epic fun
    I feel sorry for people who say their favorite game is something like "Sorry," where a drawn card determines with blind luck the game's outcome. It is more of a diversion than an actual game. I am proud to say "RISK" is my favorite game -- luck is one element, but so is strategy and brainpower.

    The goal is simple: Rule the world. Unfortunately, there are 2 to 5 opponents in your way. The game tends to last for hours as weaknesses are tested, strategies are played out and brave (or foolish) conquests are carried out. Though many games can last for hours, the tide can turn in a single round. For those fans of strategy games, this is a must-have.

    I did take one star off durability because the pieces are rather small. Be prepared to pick a few out of the carpet days after the game has ended. Other than that, take care of your gameboard, cards and pieces and I have no doubt it will last many years.

    ok, first off im 16. When i first heard about risk i thought it would be pretty fun. well, risk is a fun game but there is to much luck involved. for example an army of 2 soliders can take out an army of 10 soliders with rolling the right is a pretty easy strategy game to learnbut it gests very old easily and you can end up angry beacause you got terribel dice rolls and your friends got better rolls.its educational because it teaches some strategy. and the durability you can loose the pieces. if you want a real fun strategy game then get axis and allies which will sure give you a good time

    when i first heard about this game i expected a lot more than it friends told me this game was good and they werent lyin there.its fun even though its missing core strategy and is focused around luck.4 example my cousin usually rolls sixes on his dice while i roll 4s so im afraid of attacking him. i do like that there are many variations of the game so if u get bored of playin it 1 way try another and u might like it betta.if u like strategy games and wars theres no reason u shouldnt get this.but word of advice:only buy this game if u have spare time during the week and enjoy making diplomacies.(even though its hard to in this game.)hope i helped u in makin the right decision.if you like this game and have a big budget,i would highly reccomend buying risk 2210a.d.

    A fun adivtive game
    I love playing this game expecaly when theres teams cause i like the fact that you have your ouwn country and army and try to take over more until all your opponnts are dead and you are the victor. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This classic game of luck, strategy, and determination is easy to grasp for children as young as 6 years old, yet it's fun for adults and older siblings too. By drawing cards, players move their game pieces around the board, hoping to eventually accumulate all their pieces at the final destination--home sweet home. Sorry is known as the game of "sweet revenge," since players can send each other's pawns back to the starting line, thus forcing one another to lose ground and begin all over again. This kind of frustration may be hard for children under age 8 to handle. In fact, young ones typically crumble into tears of outrage when their pawns are cavalierly sent back. The only recourse is to teach children how to plot their own revenge, which makes them feel as powerful as superheroes. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My 8 year old nephew loves this game!
    This game works well with 6-9 year olds. Based on random cards as well as strategy. Object is to get all four of your color pieces to your home by going around the board. Each number card means something different (i.e. 4 = go backwards 4 spaces; 11 = you may trade places with your opponent). Players who get a "Sorry" card get to send their opponent back to Start!

    All I remember about this game is getting into fights with my brother when one of us would taunt they other with "sorry" (...)when we sent a piece back to the home square. This game taught revenge and frustration. you work so hard to try to get out of the starter box, only to be sent back in by a smart-aleck younger sibling. I hated this game, and would not inflict this kind of trauma on my young 'uns.

    Good Strategy
    This was a fun game, even now. I started playing it with my friends in my old home, but hadn't played it again until this year when I got it for Christmas.

    I gave it a 4 in fun because sometimes it does get a bit boring, especially at the beginning. Sometimes we go through almost the entire deck until we finally manage to get a 1 or a 2--Maybe the result of bad shuffling? Hehe.

    A five in education value because it teaches kids strategy and good sportmanship rules. Despite what some review said, this does have some stratedy--should you split the seven between 2 components, or just use one? Which other opponet should you bump? Would going backwards help you? Also, if you have young kids, you have to teach them not to get frusterated when they are bumped.

    Sorry! Is relatively durable. My friend's version tore because of the trifold design, but mine apparently is very durable. Me, my two sisters and 3 cousins aren't exactly very good with somet things, so considering all this, it's holding up very nicely, hehe.

    I'd recommend this for young kids over mindless "Candyland" or the ever-lasting "Monopoly".

    Great for young kids, and big kids, too!
    Our son just turned six, and we bought Sorry for him about six months ago. There are some board games for tots that we have to force ourselves to play with him, but not Sorry. Up to four can play, and basic counting skills can be sharpened as well as decision-making skills--our son is picking up on the actual strategy one can use within the game to move all his/her men around the board from Start to Home. The four primary colors (yellow, red, blue and green) make it easy for him to keep up/stay focused, and the playing cards are durable and easy to follow. The board is durable, too--my son hasn't been able to tear it up yet! Strongly recommended for any family who enjoys everyone taking part in a good board game, and an effective teaching tool, too.

    I played Sorry as a kid & now I'm playing it with mine. The game can change dramatically with the draw of 1 card so sometimes it's hard for my 6 year old to handle it. We did change some of the rules to make a little easier on her at first. For instance: you do not have to get to home on exact count; we don't split the 7's & don't switch places on the 11 (I think it's the 11). This made it less confusing for a little one who can't read the instructions on each card but we added rules as we went along to make it more challenging. I KNOW WE'LL BE PLAYING THIS AS A FAMILY & my kids will play it with themselves & their friends FOR YEARS TO COME!! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    If you've seen "The Exorcist" lately, the folks at Parker Brotherswould like to extend a heartfelt "Captain Howdy-Ya-Do?" courtesy of theirnewly luminescent classic Ouija Board equipment. It's the same traditionalsetup as it was decades ago: the alphabet-and-numbers board with "Yes," "No,"and "Good Bye" spelled out in turn-of-the-century mysterious script; theheart-shaped "Message Indicator Oracle" with the readout window; the numerouscoy references to Ouija being "only a game--isn't it?" So if this editionseems to comprise a bit more plastic than we remember, the promise of theboard and indicator glowing in the dark for half-an-hour (after exposure tolamplight for 10 minutes) more than makes up for it. Of course, in the darkyou'll never know for sure whether the person across the board is the onepushing the indicator, now will you? --Tony Mason ... Read more

    It really works.
    This is very real it, and it is NOT a toy. It may seem like fun, but many people who use this thing often eventually get involved in the occult (not everyone, but you run that risk if you use it enough). I would really not recomend using it. Even though it is not a "devil communicator," you are communicating with demons, not spirits. Ouija Board users: If you don't believe me, ask your "spirits", in the name of Jesus Christ, if they're demons. Don't doubt me until you ask. These boards are very real and very dangerous. Demons are not something to mess around with, and there is only one way to get rid of them.

    Ouija boards are dangerous if not used with caution! Here are some things you should know before using your Ouija...

    1. NO NEGATIVITY! Dont be angry, depressed, or feel or think any negative thoughts when attempting to communicate. This could attract a negative spirit. Keep your thoughts and emotions positive.

    2. LIGHTING- Don't dim the lights, use candle light, or at night, or in a thunderstorm, or anything like that to try to set the 'mood'. That will likely just frighten you. Fright is in this case a NEGATIVE feeling. Avoid it as best you can! Use with plenty of light in conditions you feel most comfortable in.

    There are three types of spirits. The Good, the Mischevious, and the Bad. The Good are friendly. The mischevious may lie, or play around, perhaps in ways that may frighten you. The Bad are the dangerous ones.

    3. If at any time while using the Ouija board you suddently become very afraid or cold, discontinue use immediately! These are signs of a negative spirit.

    4. Treat spirits with respect! Be kind, polite and considerate. Most spirits find it rude to dig too deeply into their death. It may be wise to ask permission.

    5. When talking to them, remember that spirits were once living people too. They have personalities, interests, friends, and opinions too.

    6. ALWAYS say good-bye before you leave! After saying good-bye, let the spirit move the planchette (the pointer) over to the Goodbye also.

    7. Dont go CRAZY. Watch for signs of obsession. If you notice that your becoming obsessed with the Ouija, don't use your Ouija for awhile. Take a break for a few weeks. The reason being, you run the risk of going insane. No joke. Susy Smith in "Confessions of a Psychic" (1971) claims that using a Ouija board caused her to become mentally disturbed. In "Thirty Years Among the Dead" (1924), American psychiatrist Dr. Carl Wickland claims that using the Ouija board "resulted in such wild insanity that commitment to asylums was necessitated." I started to experience some wild mood swings and unstability after constant use in a very short span of time.

    8. I believe that houses can become haunted through the use of using the Ouija. If you dont want to run the risk of that, just dont use it in ur house! Use it in some other building where there will be litle destractions and you can concentrate.

    My cousin and I just got this game and we opened it up only to find......
    That it was spooky, creepy, and fun all at the same time! We talked to a spirit that was pretty smart. I asked it what my name was and it spelled out my name! We asked it what its name was and it replied "DVD Player". This was a little odd considering that I thought that my cousin was moving the seer, and she thought that I was moving the seer. After the responses turned out clear, we thought about the "most likely reason", and turned to each other. It ended up that something was dragging both of our fingers. This game is so neat and if you are just sitting here reading this review than you need to take action and buy this great one of a kind game! I hope that this helped. Have a great day. :)

    Fun,Creepy Definitley Not For The Faint Of Heart
    The ouija board is great and is not for people who get scared really easy. and the people who say it is the devils tool or a devil communitcator dont (...) listen to them because they are just to religious and probably christian.

    Extremely Creepy!
    If you get scared easily than DO NOT get this game. I only used this game for less than a week because I was so creeped out by it. I haven't touched it since. I cringe every time I hear its name. ... Read more

    You can't beat a classic like Boggle for sheer return of fun on one's investment in a simple game. A small container holds 16 cubes, each cube marked with a different letter on each of its six sides. Give the container a good shake, and the cubes land within little pockets. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to find as many words (of three-or-more letters) as you can--in three minutes. Points are tallied by word length. --Tom Keogh ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great game!
    Fast-paced, exciting and brain-enlarging, Boggle is one of the best dollar/fun values going.

    My only complaint is that once you've mastered the letter set, you keep finding the same sets of words over and over and over again. We need additional letter-cubes!

    Also, my wife and I play unusual rules -- no time limit. (We both usually agree to stop after 10-15 minutes).

    Also, you will learn fewer new words with Boggle than with Scrabble, simply because the options are fewer.

    However, this is a better game to play with younger kids who can get frustrated and bored with Scrabble but will love the faster pace of Boggle.

    What happened to big boggle??
    My family has been playing boggle since I was 10 yrs old! I am now 46. Somewhere along the line we graduated to big boggle (5 letters or more ) We always played after dinner, even my grandmother. We needed teams to beat my dad! Our set has seen better days. We can't seem to find a replacement...does anyone know where big boggle has gone?

    Best game ever invented
    I feel silly writing a review of a classic like this. But I've found a lot of people who've never even played Boggle! As an adult player, I could write volumes on why it is fun, but more importantly, it has huge educational value. Including.

    1. Teaches spelling, of course
    2. Teaches vocabulary. During scoring you see the words that other people came up with, I've learned so many words that way, it isn't funny.
    3. Teaches quick thinking. This game is all about speed. That's what makes it fun and challenging.

    You can handicap the game, for instance, adults have to find words of 5+ letters while kids play 3+ letters, so that people of different ages can play together.

    A truly great game
    Boggle is extremely challenging, especially if you are playing against highly-skilled opponents. Boggle is much more fair than games that have each competitor roll their own dice or draw letters from a stack. Having every player work from the same letters means the result is always based upon knowledge and skill and never upon who got the best roll or draw.

    More than a toy
    Boggle is more than a toy,it could be used by kids and adult people.I played it many times with many friends,the competition level is very interesting. i like it!
    Ahhh you don't need many people to play boggle.
    It's easy to carry to any place.try it! ... Read more

    Sure, this real estate trading game has been the world's most popular board game for more than six decades, but what makes this edition "deluxe"? For one thing, it brings back the sturdywooden (not plastic) houses and hotels of years gone by. It also features an extra gold-colored train token, a handy holder for the Title Deed cards, and a banker's tray to keep your cash on hand. The cash, Community Chest, and Chance cards are all newly redesigned. And the 19-inch-by-19-inch board is stamped with a golden "Deluxe" arch. Featuring the original Atlantic Citylandmarks like Boardwalk and Park Place, this version is for the serious Monopoly lovers on your gift list.For further perspective on Monopoly, you can read about it in The Greatest Games of All Time and New Rules for Classic Games.--Rebecca Hughes ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic, Always Fun To Play.
    Everyone recognizes Monopoly as the "classic" board game. Everyone loves it. Monopoly is a hit with all ages, young and old. It is educational for the young ones, teaching money budgeting tactics and some real-world buying and selling scenarios. The idea of real estate conquest sometimes goes to a player's head, so games can be rather competitive. However, Monopoly will always be fun for all players, and is worth the initial invest for hours of fun in the future. With this edition, Parker Brothers adds some nice new creature comforts like an organizational deed carousel, redesigned money, gold-finished tokens and a new train playing piece. These new features are defenitely worth the extra 7 dollars.

    I got this for Christmas, and it is FUN, the new property caresal is soo cool! I absolutly loved how the new chance cards are redone. An excellent buy!

    Best game ever
    Dear readers,
    I've played all kinds of monopoly and this one I've played is the best yet!This toy is good for subtraction and addition problems and how to handle money to not get bankruped.I recramend this toy for your friends and family!You can even add your money up and reduce it in less bills!I've liked it and you should to!Get this toy TODAY!

    Cool Game! Could use a little work though.....
    Monopoly has always fascinated me, and this definatley takes the game to another level. Deed dealin is about ten times easier now with the deed carousel, and there's twice as much money in the bank! But there are still cons as well as pros....

    1.Back to wooden houses (can't get broken)
    2.New bank with enough slots for actually ALL the money!)
    3.The deed carousel makes the game easier
    4.All of the chance and Comunity Chest cards have been redone, giving them a nice look
    5. Box is nice and FLASHY

    1. Gold peices are probably spraypainted. They may look nice when you first get the game, but just wait a month or two.
    2. Bank looks to be made out of cheap, flimsy plastic
    3. Deeds are really light feeling (not as origanal)
    4. The stupid game board won't lie flat!
    5. Houses (although wooden) arn't as detailed as I like them



    Overall, I'd say that Monopoly is a great game, and that I really like the deluxe edition. It's educational, and fun. What more could a parent ask for? (I dont have an Amazon acount, so i'm using the children's entry form. Do you think a 4 year old would really write something this deep and destailed?) Definateley a good spend of my money

    Twice as Nice

    Editorial Review

    In 1934, in the midst of the Great Depression, an unemployed heating engineer from Pennsylvania created the game of Monopoly. Realizing that his get-rich theme might appeal to other Americans, he had the game printed and distributed in a Philadelphia department store. When he couldn't keep up with the overwhelming requests for more sets, he arranged for Parker Brothers to take over the game. And the rest, as they say, is history. But Monopoly is far from a quaint historical relic. To this day, it remains a riveting game of luck, chance, and savvy wheeling and dealing--all of which can make some lucky dog rich, rich, rich! Based on the purchase of Atlantic City real estate (a city currently renowned for its get-rich gambling opportunities), Monopoly is now printed in 26 languages with more than 200 million sets sold worldwide. Players still scoot the same beloved board pieces: the old shoe, the terrier, and the hot rod. This set also includes rules for a shortened version of the game and a new token, winner of Monopoly's recent "design a token" contest. This is capitalism at its most fun and ruthless, a must-have edition in the family game closet. --Gail Hudson ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun for the whole family.
    What more can be said about Monoploy, other than that it's fun for the whole family and that it's educational in the sense that it teaches you how to manage money? Monopoly is probably the most famous game ever made and is certainly one of the most well known. Monopoly has stood the test of time well.

    For fun, Monopoly rates 5 stars because you can play it and play it and never get tired of it. It's also a great game no matter how many people play it. Ever since I've been playing it, I have never gotten tired of it, which is a rare thing since most board games eventually get boring.

    For educational value, Monopoly also rates 5 stars. There aren't really a lot of games out there that teach you how to manage money the way this game does. You can own a heap of properties and then go bankrupt as quickly as anything, showing you how fast you can lose money. Monoploy also teaches you to spend your money carefully and wisely.

    And finally for durability, Monopoly gets 5 stars once again. We have an edition that is about 17 or 18 years old and it's still going and is in pretty good condition considering it's age.

    In short, Monopoly is one of my all time favourite games and is one of the best ever made.

    Only with my brother!
    I'll only play this is my brother offers to play, because my sisters, cousins and friends won't sit through it (unless Miguel plays)! It's so long and drawn out that you quickly get bored. My brother livens it up sometimes.

    Anyway,I've only finished this game twice. Once was in 1998 and me and my brother stayed up until five AM playing it--so we were essentially playing it around four hours.

    If it's a rainy day with nothing to do and you have older children, it's okay. But otherwise, it's really to long to even bother with.

    Fun Game for the whole Family!
    My whole family loves this game!It's challenging and fun!Buy lands,Railroads,and more! And the whole family is so proud of whoever made up this game!

    Editorial Review

    Round and round she goes. Hi Ho! Cherry-O is the counting game in which players race to be the first to have 10 cherries in their basket. A spin of the arrow determines your fate. It will instruct you to pick one, two, three, or four cherries from your tree and put 'em in your basket. That is, of course, if you don't land on the bird or the dog, requiring you to take two cherries from your basket and return them to the tree. And try not to land on the spilled bucket or--you guessed it--spill the contents of your basket or you start over. --Alison Golder ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great game for teaching turn taking and counting.
    This was my daughter's first "real" game. She was 2.8 years old when we purchased it. She was immediately able to play the game. There is no reading involved and focuses on the skills of turn taking, counting, and organizing the playing board. I recommend this as a first game for parents teaching their children how to take turns and count to 10, as well as manipulating small objects on the cherry trees. (I have fun playing this game too).

    A favorite for years...and still going strong
    I never played this game as a child so it was new to me too when my three year old received it for his birthday. It quickly became his favorite game and still ranks highly among his favorites at age 5! We found that it was perfect for our young child because it could be played relatively quickly and was easy to understand. Playing this game regularly helped perfect his counting skills and taught him about basic game etiquette.

    A fun classic!
    Hi Ho Cherry-O is a game I enjoyed when I was young, and now my son loves it too! It's a great way to teach counting, and also introduce addition and subtraction. If your spinner lands on a picture of cherries, it tells you how many cherries to put in your bucket - 1-4. But watch out for the bird, dog, or bucket! They make you put cherries back on your tree! The first person to get all their cherries in the bucket wins!

    I have 2 small complaints. The buckets are very tiny and even my 4 year old has a hard time picking the cherries out.

    Also the game didn't come with any "extra" cherries, so you'll have to be extra careful not to lose any.

    I believe this game will be a family favorite for many years to come.

    Great Game For all Ages!
    Santa brought this game for my 2 year old daughter. (She will however be three in Feb.) She loves it. The first game was the learning game and she had a tough time putting back her cheeries on the second spilled bucket! But now two weeks later she is a real champ about that! She even 'comforts' her daddy when he spills his bucket!

    I remembered this game as a child and since my daughter was trying to count everything I thought this game would be good for her. My four year old son loves it too.

    It doesn't inluded any extra cherries but there is a way to order 40 more. I plan to prder them nad keep them as extra's for when we lose cherries.. We haven't lost any yet but I am sure it will happpen!

    A FUN and educational classic
    I bought this game for my daughter on her 4th birthday. The whole family has enjoyed playing it. My nine and seven year old boys even request to play it. It does it's job at teaching my little girl to count. She is even learning to add and subtract a little bit and she doesn't even know it. The good thing for me is, the game doesn't take long, so even if I am busy, I can usually squeeze in a couple of games each day. The only drawback is you only get exactly enough cherries so if you lose one, you have to improvise. I think they should include a few extra cherries. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Poor Mr. Boddy has been shockingly murdered in his own mansion. To win this game, you must become a roving detective, sniffing out the answers to the classic mystery questions: Who among Mr. Boddy's guests committed the murder? What was the murder weapon? (Lead pipe? Wrench? Candlestick?) Where did the murder happen? (Library? Conservatory?) Because the answers change each time, the game is constantly challenging. A gameboard map of the mansion, detective notepad, deck of cards, one die, wandering playing pieces, and a healthy dose of intuition will help players be the first to figure out the answers. This edition of Clue is a departure from the old faces and mansion rooms that were beginning to look dated after all these years. Sultry Miss Scarlett looks like Lesley Ann Warren from the movie Clue. Mr. Green looks convincingly sinister, Mrs. Peacock snobbish and potentially cruel. Colonel Mustard is still Pompous, Professor Plum still clueless. Mrs. White, the grandmotherly maid, is downright spooky. --Gail Hudson ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars After all these years, still the classic "who-dunnit" game.
    Clue -- known as "Cluedo" here in the UK -- was my favourite game as a child, and is still up there as one of the classics.

    OK, so there are only 6 options for who did it and what they did it with, but there are 9 (am I remembering correctly?) rooms to choose from, so the possibilities, while not endless, are enough to while away an evening.

    As a kid, I loved this game because you were solving problems in a race -- and that's still why I love it. It really helps children develop powers of logical reasoning in a fun environment, and in conjunction with other people.

    But now for the real reason "Clue" (or "Cluedo") is a classic: What other game makes you feel like Sherlock Holmes, Inspector Morse, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple rolled into one? None, and that's why no home is complete without a copy in their collection!

    One of the best games ever made
    Clue is the classic game by Parker Brothers. In the game you stuck are in a mansion. The owner Mr.Boddy has been murdered and its up to you to find out who did it.

    There are six different playable characters. No character can do something others can't the only differnce in them is there starting locations and there actual names. Your goal is to navigate the mansion finding out clues as to who committed the murder. You have to guess who did it, where the murder was done, and what was is done with. You go by trial and error throughout the house until you gather enough clues to guess it right.

    The game itself is pretty durable. You have six token pieces, a six sided die, cards, a standard board, and paper sheets for you clue book. Unless something gets wet you should be set.

    The game is educational because it makes you think. You have to keep track of your clues that you collect. You can also pick up other clues by paying attention to other peoples clues and who is proving them wrong. You can be quite savvy in the game and this part is quite educational and fun.

    Clue is a classic game. People have been playing it for over 50 years. It's the classic game of who did it and it's a fun mystery. No game is ever the same and that makes it even more fun. No kid or adult should ever go there life without playing this game. So go get Clue and find out who did it.

    Very fun!
    This game is extremely fun. It is good for all ages. I personally love mystery games like this but I'm sure that everyone will like this game. For younger ages there is a clue junior. I recommend this for all!

    Over rated, imo
    It's not that I haven't had fun playing this game, it's just that it really isn't fun without the right number of people playing. There is too much dependance on getting lucky and if the skill level between playes is too great, it's a cake walk for the more logical thinkers.

    I also don't think this is the kind of game you can keep playing over and over like scrabble, boggle, or any number of card games that all have a lot more variance in play.

    I'm not totally knocking "Clue", but it's one of those games that gets tiring after a few times of playing it.

    clue is the best
    When i first played clue i was so excited and i felt like i could have played it all day!I think that clue is a great game for all ages. Its fun, exciting and interesting for the whole family. The idea is brilliant. Its also really educational. Its my best game ever by far. I would recommed you to buy it to. ... Read more

    Like many card games, Rack-O is part skill, part luck of the draw. Two to four players try to get their rack of 10 cards in consecutive order, from lowest to highest, first. The cards are numbered from 1 to 60, and each player takes a turn by drawing and discarding. Bonus Rack-O points are earned when a player gets a perfect run of three or more cards. The first to rack up 500 points wins. The rule book doesn't suggest variations, but more challenge can be added by having to get certain number patterns, like even numbers or multiples of 3, which will also increase the number skills development that's part of this game. --Lynne Sampson ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars 5-4-3-2-1 * RACK-0 * I WIN!!
    I grew up playing games but had never heard of this until I got married. I guess my husband and his mom used to always play. It is great for all ages, it is educational for the little ones and strategy builder for the big kids. It is fun and keep wanting to play because you were so close to winning! Add this one to your game closet it is guarenteed excitement for the family/friends. (only set back is max # of people is 4) You can play with 2, 3, or 4 players. There are a few variations to play to keep things intersting and easier ways for those who are just learning. +++ Get this one TODAY +++

    I am a 23 year old architect and I have have just recently discovered this game. It provides hours and hours of fun, and it is a very easy game to play and understand.

    I grew up playing this game, then introduced it to a bunch of freinds who are now hooked! I still use the version I have from the 80's & honestly didn't even know it was still being produced until just now, so I'm buying a new set!!!

    Best Game we have played as a family...
    I am 30, My daughter is 11, and my brother is 16, and we all love to play this game. Cards are not extremely durable, but it is a great game. Any time you want 6 or more people to play, just get a second game. That way, you have two decks and availability of up to EIGHT people to play. We do this with UNO as well. RACK-O is hands down, the most fun game we have all played and the only one we all agree is an absolute blast. I highly reccomend everyone own TWO of this game so ALL your friends can play at one time!!!!

    My friends and I love this game! Whenever we start playing, it's often hours before we stop. While I haven't played this game yet with young kids, I imagine it would be an excellent tool to help kids learn their numbers, and how they all fit together. The fact that the colored tabs move right as the numbers get higher, is also a great visual cue to help kids (and adults who are caught up in the game!) know that their cards are in the right order. Whether with two people or three or four (the most I've played with), this game is fabulous fun. A great game to have at home, or at your cabin or on vacation trips. Also, it's a game that even people who don't really know each other can play together without problem. It's strangely addictive, too! If you play it one night, don't be surprised if the next night, someone says, "Hey, anyone want to play Rack-O again?"! ... Read more

    Just like its big brother, Monopoly Jr. is big-time fun for everyone! Spend a day at the amusement park. Ride the roller coaster, bumper cars, or Ferris wheel. How about a game of miniature golf or a visit to the haunted house? It's simple--set up ticket booths on as many boardwalk amusements as possible, then build your fortune collecting the entrance fees as other players land on your properties. If someone else already owns an amusement, you pay up. Watch out--if one player owns both amusements of the same color, you must pay them double! So have some fun. And don't forget--pass GO, collect $2. --Alison Golder ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Smaller is Better
    Anyone who is familar with the original Monopoly will appreciate this scaled down version. It contains all the fun of the original, with a couple of new twists. The smaller board & lower prices on property & "rent" allow for a quicker, less demanding game. And the added twist of being able to bump other players' ticket booths off a site allows for unexpected turns in the outcome of the game. The game is fun for ages through adult, not just the 5-8 specified by the box. Younger children who are not able to read or count money will need help, but our 6 year old had no problem grasping the concepts, and joining in on the fun even without being able to read the cards. In addition, anyone who has been "held hostage" by amusement park prices for food will appreciate the irony that the original "Jail" and "Go To Jail" has been replaced by "Lunch" and "Go To Lunch." :-) What I would change - the player markers are too big to fit on the board well, and we had difficulty when more than one person landed on a square. I know the cars where made big to make it easier for little hands to grasp, but these are too big for the board.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not Too Bad.
    Normally I would suggest that a "junior" (meaning dumbed-down) version of a game isn't worth the time to play it or the money to buy it. However, I do recommend Monopoly Junior for families with children in K-3. The reason for this is that even though kids, with lots of help (which most don't usually get), can learn to play regular Monopoly, the game is brutal. I remember several times (when I was in the first and second grades) getting in fights with my parents and crying because I was just a kid and all these adults were kicking the tar out of me. Though there maybe some lessons there, they are still lost on me (did you ever notice that adults always like to play Monopoly with kids when they're in a bad mood).

    Anyway, with that said, Monopoly Junior is a really fun game for young children to play. It helps kids learn to take turns, follow directions, and learn basic counting skills. In many ways the game is just like Monopoly. The goal is to end the game with the most money. You have to have a strategy involved (if you don't play by rules included with the game). Properties are bought and there are a lot of money transactions. The major differences are that the game is set up as an amusement park; the money denominations are a lot smaller; the board is smaller; and it only takes about 20-30 minutes to finish one game. There is a bit of luck involved with the various chance cards, but that's no different than the chance cards in Monopoly.

    The kids I have worked with really seem to enjoy playing the game, and I really don't find that it is "dumbed down". The game is made with kids in mind instead of adults and cuts out a lot of the brutality common to the regular game. Kids see enough violence nowadays anyway.

    Definitely for younger players
    The "Junior" in the title needs to be bold-faced and in block letters, as this is one of those games that younger children -- ages five to seven? -- can enjoy but then they'll quickly outgrow it. Why?

    Standard Monopoly involves a definite chance factor, but there is plenty of room for strategy as well. "Monopoly Junior" is almost completely a luck-driven race game. There is no trading, no deciding whether to build and where to build, and no deal-making. The board and the pieces are colorful, and it does help children with counting skills and the rudiments of handling money, but there is little beyond that. I have it in my office (I'm a child psychologist), but I inwardly groan when a child wants to play it, as I find it boring. It really is only a little more complex than "Candyland" or "Chutes and Ladders" and, with younger children, "Chutes and Ladders" is more interesting. Some of my clients, though, really love "Monopoly Junior" and I suspect this has to do with getting to handle "money".

    A Great Junior Version of the Original for Younger Children
    My husband bought this game for our 5-year-old son. Our son has wanted to play over and over and over again since he got it. He just loves it. He has learned to count out the money and to collect rent on his properties. A very fun game.

    excellent kids version of the classic game
    Monopoly Junior is a great scaled-down version of the classic game that is appropriately designed to make it a fun experience for younger kids. The game board is smaller; the money comes in increments of $1, $2, $3, $4 and $5; the markers are large plastic cars; and the gameplay is not so brutal :-)

    This is a great introduction to the classic game for younger players. ... Read more

    What food gives Popeye strength? What country calls its native inhabitants "aborigines"? What street sport sees cuts and scrapes from falls called "munchies"? Answer correctly and you just might score a wedge in the junior version of the wildly popular Trivial Pursuit. Using the same game play as the adult edition--players move their pieces around the board, answering questions in hopes of collecting all six scoring wedges--this kid-friendly format includes categories just for the 8-and-older crowd. Young trivia buffs will be challenged and entertained by this lively game of wits and memory. But the real fun comes when adults try to join the game. So, Pop, what are Wakko, Yakko, and Dot better known as? The game, for two to four players or teams, includes a 20-by-20-inch folding gameboard, question-and-answer cards, dice, four tokens, and 24 scoring wedges. Oh, yes, Wakko et al. are Animaniacs! --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the Family!
    My 7-year-old daughter and I love to play this game together. She is learning so much from it! We've played it so many times that we really need new questions, though.

    Okay for very young ones
    (I'm writing from the perspective of a 35 year-old.) You don't get a whole lot of questions (two small decks), and we have come across a few that do not match the category they are supposed to represent (e.g., a question about painters in the "games" category). The game seems to have been put together quickly and cheaply. You don't get plastic "pie" pieces as in the adult version, you get cardboard slices that you set on top of pictures of the pies that are drawn on the corners of the gameboard (not a major complaint but the colors of the drawings exactly match the colors of the cardboard pie-slice markers, making it hard to see them). The questions include multiple choice answers, so it's accordingly easier to get them. Of course you can simply omit the choices when reading the questions if you want to increase the level of difficulty. It's not a bad game, but it's not an excellent game either. Middle of the road. Probably best for kids under 12.

    This is a very fun game. No offense to anyone, but the person that said that these questions are for five-year-olds is definetely wrong, unless that person is a genious. Most of the questions are NOT very easy. OK, some are kind of simple, but most are pretty hard. There are all kinds of different questions, that some people who are watch football and baseball all day would probably know. I highly reccomend this game. It's a fun way to get smart.

    Awesome game to play with your kids!
    This game is really nice for families. We play on teams, and even my little four year old can help out. When I answer, I don't get the multiple choices, to make it fair. It's a blast!! ... Read more

    Essential for preschoolers
    PROS: Great hands-on game to motivate/aid your preschooler in learning to identify simple objects, view their word spelt on the card and then to match the letters, one at a time, into words. My daughter gets Boggle Jr. out on her OWN and plays with it quite often and we've had it since Christmas 2003. We also play with it together sometimes. She has improved greatly in both her fine motor skills and her focus/attention span playing this game. Both are Essential skills needed to be ready for kindergarten. And of course, knowing the alphabet and being able to make words and sound them out--which is the first step to reading.

    CONS: All the letters to the words are capitals so it would be nice if flashcards of lower case letters were included and/or incorporated. Also there should be more than eight dice because sometimes rolling for the letters takes too long. It could be funner if there was an applause button and/or lights that went off when she spelt the word correctly. When I'm watching/helping I do that but when she plays on her own I'm sure that ONE additional feature would be so encouraging to her that she'd want to play/learn even more!

    A waste of money
    This is NOT a game. At most, it is a manipulative teaching tool for letters and how, when assembled in a particular order, they form words. We were VERY disappointed. We thought we were buying a game that would provide us with a fun way to incorporate learning of letters and words. All this does is have the child look for the letters that match those in the word on the card. No game, no fun. We used it once. It now collects dust on my shelf. I should have immediately returned it for a refund. Don't waste your money! As a homeschooling mom, trust me, it's a waste.

    Maybe educational, but boring
    My son has played this game exactly once - it is just not a fun or interesting game. He just turned four and ran through all the cards the first time he played it. All you do is match the letters on the dice to the letters on the card. I can see where there is some educational value to the game (I am a former teacher) but why bother, when there are so many other more fun ways to learn the same skills. I like the suggestion of the earlier reviewer to just buy a regular Scrabble game to do the same activities.

    We all love Boggle Jr.!
    My 3, 4, and 7 year olds all get good use out of this game in different ways. (Also our 1 year old helps by stacking up the cubes.) I would recommend it to any family with preschoolers up to early second grade (older kids play with the words always covered). My kids have been able to play it by themselves with very little teaching. Other reviewers have complained about Boggle Jr's lack of buzzers, music, timers, and competitiveness, as well as the fact that their kids actually had to look on the cubes for the letter they needed-- these are all plusses if you ask me! This game has promoted concentration and focus in my kids, and the sound of busy, thinking kids emanating from the dining room is far sweeter than electronic noises any day.

    For pre-readers this is a great toy!
    This is a wonderful item to encourage pre and beginning readers to grasp the concept of identifying each individual letter's shape (through matching) and that when put together in different ways, they form words for favorite objects.

    This is so important to preschoolers and those on the verge of reading. Once you get the game and see it, you'll find various ways the game pieces can be used to help your child at whatever prereading level he or she is on.

    One of the most underestimated games for this age. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Bop It - Is it a game or is it real?
    So, I'm minding my own business, doing my work, when my boss runs up to me with Bop It. "You've got to try this!" he demands, a maniacal look in his eye. I gingerly take the odd plastic toy. It looks like some tribal weapon, a misshapen club. My boss smacks the large "Bop It!" button, and immediatly the thing starts emitting a drum beat. Convinced it's possessed by some ancient god, I'm about to cast it away when it yells, "Bop it!" I instinctively hit the button. The drums continue. "Pull it!", the toy barks. I desperately yank on one end. The drums continue. "Twist it!" is the next command. Twist what?! I panic, then make a grab for the little twister device on the other end. "AAAaargh!!!" yells the machine, like a man falling off a caldera into molten lava. I was too late! The drums stop.

    My hands shaking, I put the toy down.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Teacher excited about Bop-It
    Bop-It has been an excellent addition to my first grade classroom. This game is in high demand each morning as students actually wait in a line to play! What's most exciting is while students think they're simply playing a fun game, they are also enhancing their eye-hand coordination as well as their auditory skills. This is a game that parents and children can play together and both enjoy! Bop-It, a durable and relatively inexpensive toy, is one I would highly recommend to game lovers of all ages.

    Great game for many ages
    Bop-it is a very fun game for many people. It tests your reflexes in a fun way. It's also nice it has so many different games to play.

    Bop It For Road Trips!
    I had no idea Bop It was so much fun. I am a mom of 4, my oldest is a nine yr old boy. He got this for Christmas last year.We went on a 9 hour road trip over the summer. My son decided to bring Bop It. I thought it might distract my husband while he was driving, the only distraction was that he wanted to play.I couldn't resist myself. We ended up having a contest to see who could get the farthest. My son won with a score of 99. It is a great toy for concentrating and motor skills.Even my 5 year old played, though he was a little young for it. It was an absolute blast. We played with it for hours. I should mention that my kids chose to play this over there game boy advances for almost the entire trip!

    It never dies !
    We have had this toy for 4 years--same batteries mind ya' just went for a new set. Ths thing is great fun for everybody, kids & adults. Play it in the dark- you'll crack up. THe best toy invented for the money !! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Even electronic toys have gone extreme. Kids love the original Bop It, an electronic toy that challenges response time to pull, twist, and bop different parts of the toy. The extreme version adds two more tasks, more sounds, and a taunting, smart-aleck announcer who directs the game. As you get better, the game moves faster until you miss a beat and lose, accompanied by a fair amount of noise and ridicule from the toy. People who don't think they'd ever want to play Bop It Extreme won't be able to put it down; it instills a compulsive need to bop till you drop. It can be played in a group and makes a good party game--even for serious adults. --Lynne Sampson ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best toys EVER!!!
    Now, mind you, this is coming from the perspective of a twenty-something. My friends and I are all addicted to this game. So, it's a big crowd pleaser with young adults, and even adults who wish they were young. However, it's also a lot of fun for older children.

    I would not advise buying this toy for a young child, because it requires a lot of fine motor skills, coordination, and concentration. The premise is simple. The game talks and tells you to do one of five things: bop it, flick it, spin it, twist it, and pull it. The game tells you to do one of these things, and then you pick the part that corresponds to it (they are labled with the same names) and perform the required action (ie, if it tells you to "pull it" you pull the little blue thing).

    Amazon has provided an online version of Bop It Extreme that you can try out for yourself to see what I mean. However, be warned. The online version seems to be a lot easier than the real thing for some reason.

    This game is challenging, and will force you to play it over, and over and over...

    You won't regret buying this game, whether it is for yourself, or for an older child. Oh, unless you are a parent and hate loud toys. There is no volume control on this toy, so you will be annoyed. Fair warning. :)

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Commands will Haunt your head!
    I never imagined how addictive or fun this toy would be from seeing the ads alone, then one day my friend got it and threw it at me to try. I was instantly hooked and had to get one.
    Its a great toy to train focus and speed thinking along with great eye/hand/ear coordination. The pace and variety of moves (spin, flick, pull, bop, twist) keeps the game challenging and interesting for a long time.
    Aside from regular solo Bop-it, there is also Bee-bop (instead of verbal commands, sound effects only are used), and the best part is the "group play" in which "pass it" is added to the commands and you dont want to be the one who gets stuck with it and screw up. (and yes, the toy will taunt you!) This is always a lot of fun to play in groups,especially if everyone jams along with the beat.
    With all that said, you will annoy most other people in the room with the noise this toy makes...unless you let them play, and then everyone will have those sound effects and beat box running through their heads!!!

    bop it EXTREME
    I'm just a kid so I know fun. My best friend Lauren came over to play and brought her brother"s bop it extreme in case we got boarded. We ended up playing it for most of the tiime and she was over for 3&1/2 hours. This toy is really, Really, REALLY FUN. It's great for kids of all ages. My friend Lauren's little sister Allie can play it and she's only 3( she's really good too!) I recomend this toy for any person age 3 and up. If(when) you buy it you won't regret it because this to will ROCK YOUR WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Play the original first before this one
    I like the game .People say its great.In my opinion,it's good but its not great.This was the 1998 sequel to Bop It(1996).plus,there was a sequel to the Bop It- Extreme:Bop It-Extreme 2(2002 or 03).Since this was the 2nd bop it,this has 5 actions:Pull it,twist it,bop it,spin it and flick it instead of 3.the game is a little too hard.I can never get the high score.The game is even more nuts when there is sounds instead of words.This is fun it's just that i'd rather you buy bop it before this one

    Ain't the thing I was expecting,
    Hi ya people,once again I got a nother toy. It is kind of fun in a way. Now, on to the review. In a way it is fun. I mean, sheesh, go buy bop it extream 2. This thing don't even have something to make it SHUT$& ! Yeah, there is'nt much differince in the game thingies. No diff at all. Next to that bop it extrem 2 has a head phone plug to lisin and play without disterbing anyone. Now, bop it extrem before you play choose what setting you want. I know beep-bop solo is when you play by yourself. Bop box is when you here tunes and noises. I don't know about the other settings. They ain't all that challenging. I bet you are wondering how to turn it off. Well, after you lost put it down gentley and it is automaticley shut off. So I recomend bop it extrem 2 more than I recomend bop it extrem. Hope this review was helpful! Late ... Read more

    Perfect gift for my Grandparents
    This turned out to be the perfect gift for my Grandparents because this edition is from their generation. Not only is it nostalgic, but it also fun to play.

    Clue is so wonderful!
    This is a very fun game. Can be played for hours and hours, and even better, for kids, it makes them think, something some of them aren't doing nowadays! The game is really a murder scene, and throughout the game, you must find out the other players cards, so you can discover which cards lie in the confidential envelope. Find out who the murderer is, which weapon, and in which room first to win. The perfect game for all! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    If you remember playing the popular original in the early '80s, you may want to get this Trivial Pursuit 20th Anniversary edition for nostalgic reasons. If you remember a lot of the last two decades, you'll want to get this edition to test yourself. Moving around the circular board, players collect wedges for correct answers to questions on "all things trivial from the past 20 years." Examples are: What tennis star was forced to do sit-ups in her crib? What became the third nation in the Western Hemisphere to hit a population of 100 million? What was the last Dune novel to be written by Frank Herbert? These and the remaining questions are distributed from a fancy new card shoe that is included. The back of the card dispenser has a small compartment for storing the tokens, pie wedges, and die. The board sports a more streamlined look these days, but still folds up into that familiar pie-shaped wedge when game play is over. --Pam Lauer ... Read more

    Well, it is called trivial for a reason...
    Being a fan of all things trivial and trite, I own (through thrift stores and garage sales) even the original Trivial Pursuit and its companion packs. Naturally, I purchased this version (you can never have too much trivia). However, I was somewhat dissappointed.

    It's not a matter of how trivial the information, nor how difficult the questions, but rather--how poorly the questions are written. They are written in such a convoluted manner that my boyfriend and I give each other credit just for understanding the question at times. The question content is extraordinarily obscure at times, but they are generally diverting (who knew that Saddam Hussein wrote romance novels?)

    I can't help but lament--if they had just hired a better proof reader, editor and writer for the questions this edition would have been one of the best in a long line of Trivial Pursuits.

    Questions Are Hard!
    Maybe I'm not old enough to remember EVERYthing from the past 20 years, but I thought that I might have had a good shot at it. This game was way too hard, though. I think if you're a trivia buff then this might be the game for you, but otherwise the questions are way too...well, trivial.

    Love it
    My husband and I got this game for Christmas 03 and have already used all of the cards. We have weekly game nights with friends ans everyone loves this game because all of the questions have happened since 1982. The only thing is that they need more cards from this time.

    Completely trivial trivia
    My family has always enjoyed playing Trivial Pursuit on holidays but when we recently played TP 20th Anniversary during a family gathering, we were very disappointed. We thought that this version might be a little easier for some of the younger family members that wanted to play along with the adults. Like many of the others that have reviewed this game, we too found most of the trivia so obscure that it nearly made the game unenjoyable. In addition, many of the questions seemed to be worded so poorly that we could barely understand them, much less answer them. I recommend sticking with one of the previous versions of this game. They were much more enjoyable.

    It is a very good board game. And I feel you can learn so much and it challenges your knowledge. ... Read more
