People have been getting twisted and tangled playing Twister since the 1960's! You'll fall over with laughter as you get 'tied up in knots'! Twister is played on a large plastic mat spread on the floor or ground. The mat is the board game. The mat has four rows of large colored circles on it with a different color in each row: red, yellow, blue, and green. A spinner is attached to a square board and serves as a die for the game. The spinner is divided into four labeled sections: right foot, left foot, right hand, and left hand. Each of those four sections is divided into the four colors (red, yellow, blue, and green). After spinning, the combination is called (example: right hand yellow) and player move their matching hand or foot to a dot of the correct color. There is no limit to how many can play at once!
The game is abstract, each player has set of pawns of his color. Each turn player rolls a die using the Pop-O-Matic and selects one of his pawns to move. Pawns can enter the track from Home base only on a roll of six. Each pawn needs to travel around the board and finish on the Finish lane. If pawn of another player is bumped, the bumped pawn is returned to home. The goal is to be the first one to get all the pawns to the Finish lane.
For advanced players, we suggest that when a piece gets bumped, it should only be bumped back to its START space, rather than to its HOME. Only when bumped from their START space are pieces sent HOME.
The mystery face game where you flip over a collection of faces with different color hair, eye color, hair, hats, glasses etc. to deduce who the secret person is that your opponent has chosen. You flip over the hooked tiles as you narrow your choices by asking characteristic questions.
Yahtzee has been one of the most popular dice games in the United States since its introduction in the 1950s. Today, over 50 million games are sold each year. The game was invented by an anonymous Canadian couple, who called it 'The Yacht Game' because they played it on their yacht with their friends. The best 'hand' in a game of Yahtzee is a five of a kind. The game is played with five dice, and if you get five dice all with the same number, then you’ve scored a 'Yahtzee'. The name of the game is also the name of the best hand. The odds of rolling a Yahtzee on your first roll are 1295 to 1, so you won’t see that happen too often–at least not on a single roll.
