Tonight after watching a movie and eating pizza (yummy) We had family game night :) Thanks to the awesome people at myblogspark.com and Hasbro we had a new game to try out. I was excited to get Giraffalaff Limbo and Scatterpillar Scramble in the mail, if for no other reason they are made by Hasbro, the same company that makes elefun the elephant! (My kids' favorite game)
Even though we got 2 games in the mail, we decided to do one a night. We started with Giraffalaff Limbo. First thing to note is that the game requires 3 AAA batteries which are not included. Assembly was very smooth and straightforward. The only tool required was a phillips head screwdriver to unscrew the battery door. It should be noted that after assembling the side supports of the game, they do not come apart to fit back into the box.
When assembled, the game consists of the two side supports, the horizontal limbo bar, and a spinner card.
Each round, someone spins, and whatever method the spinner lands on (limbo, crab walk, bird walk, etc) is the method for that round. Everyone has a turn, and whoever knocks the bar off of the supports is out. Then the winners of that round get to try another round, but with the bar moved down a notch. My kids (4 and 2.5) were most interested in spinning the spinner, so we kind of made our own rules as we went. We kept the bar at the highest, and just let them keep going with no winners or losers.
Overall, it was a fun game, and there was alot of laughter during the time we were playing. The game plays a nice, fun, upbeat tune, and when someone knocks the bar off, it erupts in a fit of laughter which my kids found hilarious. We don't have much storage space, so the fact that it cannot be easily broken back down for storage is a drawback. I think it would be great at parties and cookouts though. :)
Giraffalaff Limbo can be purchased at most toy retailers including Amazon.com, Toys R Us, Target, etc.
