Hasbro Games Review + Giveaway


Giveaway is closed!

Winner is:

#164 SharpTeethOfLove







Hasbro games has been in my family ever since I can remember! It was always so fun growing up with Hasbro games to play for entertainment! It always brought joy to our table as a family when playing Hasbro games!

The many games I remember playing growing up were: Candy Land, Operation, Clue, Battleship, Jenga, and Hungry Hungry Hippos. Those games were always so fun to me as a kid!









Paul and I enjoy the game Boggle at our house! It's fun because you can play with just 2 players so that's what we do sometimes! It's fun to come up with words out of mixed up letters in  3 minutes! The person who has the most words wins! This game can be played with 2-6 players! Boggle retails for $17.99. 



Growing up I always loved the game Life.  Believe it or not, Life has been a family classic for over 30 years. This game can be played with 2-6 players. This game is exactly what it is called. You can have kids, go to college, have a career, lose your job, have a lawsuit on you, get married, have a pay day, and many more things.

This game includes:

-Gameboard
-6 plastic SUV pawns
-Pink & Blue 'people' pegs
-3 Plastic mountains
-Plastic Bridge
-6 Plastic Buildings
-Label Sheet
-Spinner
-Stack of play money
-insurance policies and bank loans
-25 LIFE Files
-Deck of 36 cards
-Banker's tray
-Instructions



This game is the winner of the CLASSIC Award by Parent's Choice Awards.
Life retails for $14.99.



My thoughts on the game of Life:  I still love this game now as much I did many years ago. There is so much to this game that it will keep you entertained the whole way through. There is alot to the game so it will take you some time to read over the rules and learn what everything is. Your kids will love putting people into their cars and moving the cars forward! This game was very easy to set up at first. It comes with pieces that you need to attach to the board and you just do this the very first time. This game probably took us a hour to play with 3 people!






My cat loved that we were playing Life! She slept in the box the whole time we played and even much longer afterwards!


Monopoly Championship Edition is a game that includes top tips for winning and fab champion facts! This is a great way to pack even more fun into the game of Monopoly! This game includes a fun trophy so whoever wins will receive a fun trophy! :) 


This game includes:


-gameboard
-8 movers with carry bag
-28 Title Deed cards
-16 Chance cards
-16 Community Chest cards
-1 pack of MONOPOLY money
-32 silver houses
-12 gold hotels
-2 number dice
-1 speed die
-championship scorepad
-champion’s trophy
-6 name strips and instructions.


For 2 to 6 players. Ages 8 and up.  Monopoly Championship Edition retails for $19.99.




My thoughts on this game: I was really impressed with the trophy! I had never seen that with a Monopoly game before! I think it'd be fun for kid's to play knowing there's a trophy they can win! Paul's family has played Monopoly for many years and has enjoyed every moment with the family playing this game together! This game will entertain you for a whole night of game playing! There are many rules to the game, but it's easy to learn the rules. I think it's fun that the movers are so different like a shoe, dog, car, and etc. Monopoly is a good way to bring the family together and will involve everyone! You will definitely love the Monopoly Championship Edition!






Remember, Hasbro games this Valentine's Day! Give a Hasbro game to the entire family as a gift! You will love having a Family Game Night together!
