Just in time for summer, Swingset Press Games has three new games perfect for sleepovers, birthday parties, or even a girl’s night out. Moms will love these games because they will be reminded of their own childhood playing charades and truth or dare. Their daughters will love how these games have been updated for the 21st century! With texting and cell phones truth or dare will never be the same!
Ultimate Truth? or Dare!
How would you respond to: “on a scale of 1 to 10, how cute do you think you are?” or “would you dare eat five potato chips using only your feet (eiuw!)?” At this sleepover, anticipate the most revealing, perhaps grossest and most hysterical when playing the boxed set of Ultimate Truth? of Dare! It’s the Ultimate Truth? or Dare! because the choice is ultimately yours. Pass or choose, win or lose, the first BFF to reach 100 points wins. But be careful, the spinner may throw a surprise at you that might help or hurt you in the game, like the Safe Zone, that skips your turn, or the Dare Squared card that delivers two dares that you must accept on your turn.
Comes with cards, spinner and instructions for a memorable party.
Here’s a game for girls who never get stage fright. Kids have to stop laughing long enough to
guess what two challenges the player is simultaneously performing before the time runs out. A
fun example for the two challenges: “ACT like an Olympic freestyle ice skater” while you pretend to “BEG your parents to raise your allowance!” The ACT cards require you to pantomime in place, jump around, use your body to do whatever it takes to make your BFFs guess what your card is. You can make noise but not with your voice. The SOUND out cards allow you to sing, squawk, or talk as loud or softly as you need to help your friends guess that card. No actions though, nor can you say words from the card!
Game includes 50 Act Out cards, 50 Sound Out cards, a score pad, mini-pencil, 60-second timer and complete rules.
What makes a S.T.A.R.? In this game it’s anyone who can Sing, Toe-tap, Act and do something Ridiculous. Finally a pajama party game for multi-talented girls who have star qualities! You can’t be good at just one of these things to win the game, though—you have to go for it for all four types of S.T.A.R. Awardz! During the game, you’ll have to sing a song and keep its beat to impress your friends; show some fancy footwork; give an Oscar-worthy performance of your dramatic interpretation; and show your buds something rare, remarkable and downright ridiculous.Wrote one fan on the Justice store website: “this game rocks for sleepover parties and birthday parties! It’s so fun if ur not shy so if ur not shy and u love being silly this is the game for u.”
Game comes with spinner, star-shaped cards, a timer and set of 75 Challenge cards. If your BFFs applaud you, you’ll take home all four S.T.A.R Awardz! The first to collect one of each of the four wins.
Review - After hearing about these games, I immediately thought of two of the sweetest babysitters I have ever met! They are both 12 years old making them the perfect age to try out these games! They both have cell phones, live two houses down from each other and pretty much live at each others houses! Their favorite game was Ultimate Truth or Dare! They had a blast calling random cell phone contacts, answering questions about themselves and pulling off weird and sometimes disgusting stunts! They really enjoyed Acting Out and S.T.A.R. Awards too. Pretending to be a famous movie star or earning points for knowing how to act somewhat ridiculous is, for some reason, extremely fun for girls this age! I would recommend these hilarious games for anyone with daughters ages 7+.
