We are back with our family game night features for 2018. We love doing these fun family game nights and sharing the games that we try out each week. To start out the new year we are playing two really fun games from Goliath called Greedy Granny and Jumping Jack. We had a blast with both.
Jumping Jack is a fun kid-friendly game that adds the element of surprise that makes this a fun and thrilling game all at the same time. Pull carrots out but keep an eye on Jack the rabbits because when he pops out of the rabbit hole you will want to catch him to win.
In the box you will find:
The rabbit hole stand
Jumping Jack figure
4 carrot collecting buckets
Who Would Enjoy This Game:
Jumping Jack is designed for ages 4 and up and can be played by 2-4 players. It’s great for younger kids because it is really easy to play and a lot of fun. It’s perfect for teaching about counting and developing hand-eye coordination skills. It’s great for families because it’s fast-paced and full of laughs as you try to catch Jack when he jumps out of the hole. It will entertain the entire family.
Is It Fun:
Yes, we had a blast playing it. We would laugh every time Jack came hopping out of his rabbit hole as the entire family would dive to catch him. You never know when he will jump so that element of surprise makes the game super fun.
Gameplay is very easy. To set up the game place the rabbit hole base in the middle of the table. Put carrots in each hole around the base. Push Jack down into the middle of the hole until he clicks and is secure. Each player will choose a bucket and place it in front of them.
On your turn, you will spin the spinner. If you land on a carrot space you will pull the number of carrots you landed on (1 or 2). Put your carrots in your bucket. If you land on the X then you lose your turn. If you land on the bad carrot space you must remove a carrot from your basket and put it to the side. Continue playing, pulling carrots out fo the base until Jack jumps. When Jack jumps everyone tries to catch him while he is still in the air. If someone catches him then they win. If no one catches Jack then the player with the most carrots in their bucket wins.
No, it’s very easy to play and a lot of fun. Great for all ages.
Where Can You Find It:
Jumping Jack is available from Goliath Games! Available at Walmart, KMart, Khols, Target, & Amazon as well.
Do you like sneaking snacks? Then you are going to love Greedy Granny. Take turns trying to grab snacks from granny’s tray without getting caught. It’s a fun and fast-paced game that will keep you entertained for hours.
Granny Chair Base
12 Snack Pieces
Who Would Enjoy this Game:
Greedy Granny is designed for ages 4 and older and 2-4 players. It’s a great game for younger kids because it’s interactive and very easy gameplay. It’s a great game for families because it’s entertaining for a variety of ages and skill levels. The element of surprise is a lot of fun and makes for a lot of laughs.
Is It Fun:
Yes, we had a blast playing this one. When she sits up her teeth come flying out which made for a lot of laughs. You never know when she will sit up either which caught us by surprise a few times again creating a lot of laughs. It’s a great game that everyone can enjoy.
Gameplay is very easy. To set up your game build the granny chair feature using the instructions in the box. Tilt her back so she is reclined and insert the teeth inside her mouth. Fill the tray with all of the snacks on her lap. Set it in the middle of the table so everyone can reach her.
On your turn, you will spin the spinner. If you land on a green space you will try to steal a snack. If you land on a purple space you will put a snack back. On the green and purple spaces, you also have to press the button the number it shows on the space you landed to see if you woke granny. If you land on the circle with a line through it you lose a turn. Your goal is to swipe one of each kind of snack to win the game. If someone wakes up granny they have to put all of their snacks back and reset her so play can continue. Keep playing until someone has one of each snack and wins the game.
No, it’s a really fun game. It does have some small pieces (mainly the teeth) so not recommended for kids younger than four.
Where Can You Find It:
Greedy Granny is available from Goliath Games! Available at Toys R Us & Amazon as well.
