Hasbro Gaming #FunAtHome


Board games remain one of the best ways for families to connect in a fun environment. With more time at home, board games provide an ideal way to pass the time while still keeping everyone entertained and, in many instances, learning some new skills.

Hasbro one of the world's largest toy, game and entertainment experience companies has a few suggestions on how to put a new spin on classic fun by adding a fresh twist to the games that fans have come to know and love including Jenga, Twister and Monopoly amongst others.

To start you off, we have come up with a few suggestions on how to ‘change up’ some Hasbro favourites -can you think of a better way to raise the fun? ​

1.Chopsticks Jenga Anyone?

It’s usually a simple equation. Gather your family together, throw in a lot of laughter and a little attitude, and get the Classic Jenga party started. Pull the block, stack it on top, and hope the tower doesn’t crash down – easy, right? But have you tried using chopsticks instead of your fingers to move the blocks? Take it up a notch by having your family use chopsticks to pull blocks and stack them – who has the steady hand now?

2.Layered Up Twister.

Get moving with the classic game of Twister. Take turns with the spinner. You'll be tangled up and laughing out loud in no time! Be the last one standing and win, but could you pull off a win with five or more layers of clothes on? Start the game with all the items in your winter wardrobe try your best to twist and tangle with the added warmth. Or how about Twister Sumo-Style? Tie a pillow around your waist and try navigate the Twister board with the extra weight. And finally there’s blindfold twister - have your teammates shout out directions to you while you navigate the board ‘in the dark’

3.Mark Your Territory on MONOPOLY Mzansi.

The familiar family game with localised streets and properties for South African players can also get a fresh approach. Flip the rules and introduce a new approach; if you have lived on one of the streets on the MONOPOLY Mzansi board in real life, you automatically own that street at the start of the game. Try switching out Monopoly Moolah for IOU’s i.e. ‘make the recipient a cup of tea’, “I owe you one backrub’ etc and claim back the IOU’s after the game. Monopoly is a great way to teach the kids about budgeting and negotiation skills.

4.Set up four.

Connect 4 boards to create a square shape, enjoy some disc dropping fun and play musical chairs while attempting to complete all four boards.

5.The Classic Operation Game.

This game tests who has the steadiest hand but who can operate the fastest when they have a ticking timer in the background?
