Making memories with your family with game nights make for an awesome chance to revive some old classics. Family game night should always include classics such as Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit. I remember as kids we would play monopoly all the time with extended family during the holidays and it would get very competitive. So I was excited to have my cousin and our families try this out and get to see what Hasbro has to offer for our favorite family games.
The Hasbro Game Channel offers so many great games for the PS3 that we have. They also have games for all other consoles such as Xbox and PS4. You can try out Monopoly, Risk and Trivial Pursuit. Starting this fall, the Hasbro Game Channel will be available to download on Xbox One, video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. All games will also be available for download individually on the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Here are details about each game:
- MONOPOLY Plus – MONOPOLY Plus brings the world’s favorite family gaming brand to a new level with the original 2D MONOPOLY board as well as a colorful and lively animated 3D version that evolves as you progress in the game. MONOPOLY Plus lets players choose their favorite ‘House Rules’ to customize gameplay. Up to six players will be able to enjoy MONOPOLY Plus online or offline.
- RISK – Strategy fans will venture into stimulating modern warfare combat with RISK. Keeping the authenticity of the 2010 rules as the standard, RISK offers a new strategic experience with a familiar map layout optimized with modern armies, 3D tactical battlefields, configurable win conditions and rule variants. Online league play will allow players to compete with people from around the world.
- TRIVIAL PURSUIT Live! – Trivia fans can test their wits in this new take on the world’s most well-known trivia game. TRIVIAL PURSUIT Live! transforms the classic experience into a TV-show setting with reinvented question formats, customizable game lengths and a variety of game rounds and rules to keep players guessing.
My cousin also included her own thoughts after trying out this game, “I had a great time trying it out and I would definitely recommend this game!! Great time to spend with the family!! The more players the better the game!!”
The board game monopoly is a classic in itself, however seeing the 3D version is pretty cool. I played it first in classic mode with the living board and with the family ranging from ages 7-37.
The family all had a great time playing this game and the graphics were awesome. How the pieces moved were cool and funny when they get knocked over by the dice.
The controls for the game were easily laid out, even a 4 year old could possibly do it.
The Banker is always encouraging you and cheering you on as you play. All in all we all had a great time challenging each other and it’s just like the classic board game. The time goes by faster due to the fact that everything is automatically calculated.
I tried playing the online version which was played in the classic mode and waited 5 minutes for players to join. It was like playing regular monopoly but with players from anywhere, this made it intriguing. I was doing poorly in this game, I kept on following the person in front of me, which was frustrating, and so I had to pay rent since they kept buying up the properties :(. I also went to jail 3 times. It just wasn’t my lucky day.
I ended up owning 2 properties throughout the game and being poor and eventually I had to declare Bankruptcy. I had fun playing the game even though I lost. Can’t win them all!!
In all the game is a great game to play with your family and when you don’t have anyone else to play with you can join people online to play with them rather than by yourself. The game does give an option to play by yourself if you wanted to.
Key things we liked:
Playing with family
GOING TO JAIL
Online play rolling doubles
