EA Games~ Wii Hasbro Family Games Night 2

Traditional family game nights take a new twist with the Wii and EA Games Hasbro Family Game Night 2! The always charismatic Mr. Potato Head hosts your evening of fine family fun and makes old classics new favourites through the kinesthetic interactive entertainment of Wii technology. Hasbro Family Game Night 2 allows four people to play against each other in 5 popular Hasbro games--the toppling, suspense action of Jenga, the hand steadying surgical practice of Operation and the wit and strategy of Connect 4 x 4 combined with the eye popping I-Spy of Pictureka! and the actions sequences of bop it!
When my kids and I slid Hasbro Family Game Night into our Wii we were welcomed by the familiar yet changing face of Mr. Potato Head. Set in a TV game show format you can customize the game by changing the game room theme, and rearranging Mr. Potato Head's appearance! Win and collect parts for the coveted golden potato.

Hasbro Family Game Night 2 is the perfect game for family gatherings this holiday season and will bring your family together year round as they ooh and ah over each suspense filled move and laugh at each others fumbles and bumbles. The weekend we received this game my son happened to be hosting a friend to a sleepover and all that night and next morning was packed with Hasbro game action! Our living room was filled with the sounds of laughter, cheers, and jeers. A fabulous party highlight is the opportunity to play in Game show mode which allows you to compete against each other in games randomly chosen by the spin of a wheel!

Everyone will have their personal favourites. My 9 year old son enjoys the fast paced challenge of image hunting in Pictureka. Definitely not as easy as one may think! My daughter Emma, age 7, proclaims her favourite is Connect 4 x 4 the newest take on a classic game of strategy and let's face it a little luck! My 5 year old daughter, Bronwynn, thinks Operation "Rocks" but admits it's pretty tricky for a surgeon as young as herself! Finally, I am partial to the suspenseful and wobbly, nerve racking action of Jenga. My hubby loves games period so asking his favourite is probably a moot point!
I personally love seeing recognizable classics revisited with a new digital twist that breaths new life into them for the modern kid in a modern age. Though admittedly I will never tire of traditional board games which will never be replaced! EA Games brings traditional games to life and adds a new buzz of excitement to family entertainment and togetherness!

Hasbro Family Game Night 2 is rated E for everyone and for the Wii carries an MSRP of $39.99. Hasbro Family Game Night 2 is also available in the Nintendo DS format.
