Play Monster Yeti, Set, Go!
(Play Monster $19.99)
This is something like a Mini-Skeetball game. Players set the "meatballs" flying by hitting their Yeti on the head. The object is to be the first to get one of the marble meatballs into the top ledge or get one on each ledge. In our trial games, one player managed to send her meatballs into the next door player's mountain on almost every play. Needless to say, that player (sigh) did not love this...but all the other players did enjoy it. There's not a lot of learning here, except maybe being a good sport. It is what it is...a game of chance that has novelty appeal and a lot of action and laughing. Marked for 4 and up, we think it's more like a fun choice for 5-8.
