Fun Family Gaming with Spin Master Games

Does your family love to play games? Do you play the same games with visitors over and over again during the holidays? Liven up the party this holiday season with games from Spin Master Games. You may already be familiar and own some of their games already but now they have some brand new ones to enjoy.


 We received four of their new games including Shark Mania, Family Challenge, Moustache Smash and Hedbanz Act Up!. I thought it was pretty neat that these four came in a larger box that held all of them. Makes it easier to keep them all together for family game night and also easy to take to friends and families homes as well. They all looked so fun we didn’t know which one to start with.


 Shark Mania was the very first game we played. This game is very fast paced. The object of the game is to get yourself to the green island safely meanwhile collecting as many gold coins as you can. Be on your toes though because it’s a timed game and the shark just may knock you off the bridge taking you out of the game. This game was super easy to assemble and fun to play even though I kept getting bit by the shark, bahaha.


 The kiddos thought Moustache Smash was funny since we all had to wear these fake moustaches while playing the game. This game is fast paced as well. The dealer flips cards over for the other players and if the card matches the mustache they are wearing they smash the card with their moustache. Be very careful though because if you smash the wrong card you lose 2 cards! This game is pretty hilarious and went over well with everyone.


 Headbanz Act Up! was one of the games I couldn’t wait to play. Again this game is another fast paced game that works with a timer.  Everyone wears a different colored adjustable headband and draws a card to put in that headband. The object of the game is to get rid of all your blue tokens first. You get rid of your tokens but guessing the person, place or thing that appears on your headband cards. By rolling the die the color will dictate who will ACT UP by acting out the word on the other players card.


 Does your family like a challenge? The Family Challenge game is a great game for friendly family competition. Everyone competes in different kinds of events including Vision, Agility, Smarts and Luck. The object of this game is to win the most challenges and medals. This game will surely keep your family entertained.


We think all these games are fun and would also make great gifts this holiday season.  You can find them for purchase at Kmart, Target, Amazon and Toys R Us.

    That looks pretty good! I love the Spin Master games and how they’ve brought back Headbands for kids lol. I think my own would really like that and I’m going to try and scoop this kit as an addition for under the tree.
