Think Fun "Hyper Swipe" Game Review "Holiday Gift Guide 2011"

With chilly weather starting to really take over the days and nights, we are in need of some new games to play. Our family is always playing games, usually a game every night. Sometimes it can be junior monopoly, guess who and also a favorite matching games. Matching games are a great way to exercise our kids brains as well as ours, but at the same time have a fun family time together. I was sent a game to review called the HyperSwipe from ThinkFun. The name of the game is truly the game.

About the company: ThinkFun was founded in 1985 by husband and wife team Bill Ritchie and Andrea Barthello. They were founded with a dream that could change the world through play, and at 25 years young, they are living that dream.  Today, ThinkFun is a respected global company represented in over 60 countries and translated into over 20 languages.

There are several different online games you can play. While they also offer apps for the iPhone and the Android. So, whether you are home with the kids or at the Dr.'s with your little ones you can offer them online games to play.
HyperSwipe Game of Speed & Visual Tricks $24.99: HyperSwipe will put your reflexes to the test as you race against your opponents to collect the most image matches. Image cards pop out of the HyperSwiper as fast as you can grab them, so you’ll have to think or match fast and move at hyper-speed!

~Instructions


I knew right away that when I got this game out of the box my kids where going to go crazy. Since, our family already plays tons of matching card games, this was going to be great for my kids. Although, my kids usually play the memory match games that you take turns and turn over cards. This is totally different, but still the same concept, "Make Matches". 


The game was super easy to set up. All I had to do was put 2 AA batteries in the HyperSwiper. Once I did this, I then put the round cards into the machine. So, while my kids were eager to get started I shuffled the cards and gave them 5 square cards a piece. 


Once you turn the HyperSwiper on it slides a round card up just enough so you can see some of the images on the round card. If you have a card that matching one of the images you grab the card, one point for you. Although, my kids soon realized that you do have to be careful since some of the images look alike. If you grab a round card that isn't a matching image you then loose a point. Plus, there are treasure and trash cards which offer really cool features.


My kids had a blast with this, I swear they played for a really long time. There was a lot of laughs and giggles during the time of playing the HyperSwipe. I know that my little boy is only 4 not really the right age, but he played and had fun as well. This is a great family fun game and would make any little kid happy at Christmas.





Where to purchase: You can purchase the HyperSwipe and other games on Think Fun website. You are also able to order from Amazon. Prices will vary depending on what you purchase.
