Squashed {Giveaway} Closed

You might say we have a fair amount of board games. You might even say we’ve played a lot of board games. We like to have fun, that’s what we say! Whether we’re playing at home just the two of us or getting together with friends for a game night, My Man J and I are always keeping an eye out for a new game to add into the mix. At first when PlaSmart sent me Squashed I thought it would be all too easy and there wouldn’t be any thrill or thought to it. How wrong I was! Let me give you a run down of this game and see what you think of it. PlaSmartLogo-1024x427 Their mission states “(PlaSmart Inc.) seeks out interesting, one-of-a-kind toys that meet its ‘smart and simple’ philosophy and avoids toys that are difficult to understand or operate.” I would have to say that this game totally lives up to that! The content is basic and the instructions are simple. IMG_4463 Squashed is for ages 6 and up. The ‘board’ of this game is actually a large, grey cube with holes in it. One side opens so you can store all of the other pieces inside of it. Also included are a felt playing mat to rest the cube on, instructions, a 6 sided die, and 16 pegs in 4 colors. You can play with 2,3 or 4 players. I’m so glad you can play with 2, finding games for 2 or more players can be difficult. IMG_4469 The whole object of the game is to be the last pawn standing. You roll the dice to determine the amount of moves you get to make. With each turn you take you can squash pawns into the cube or make your way to the king. IMG_4471 If you make it to the king you get to flip the cube and squash all of the pawns on one side into the cube! Some times you have to sacrifice your own pawns to win! There was more than one point in the game that I was sure I had My Man J bested, then the cube would flip and I’d be in a bad way. IMG_4478 Pros:

  • There is a lot of replay value on this game. We only played with 2 but I’m sure when adding more players it would get even more intense!
  • This game is really simple to get the hang of. I think younger children could definitely learn to play quickly. It also gives you the opportunity to add some strategy, so I think it’s great for adults as well.
  • One round of this game can be quick. With just two of us playing it only took us about 10 minutes to complete one round using two colors a piece (a recommended way to play with 2 players).

Cons:

  • The cube was a little hard to open at first, but now that we’ve opened it over and over it’s getting easier to manage.
  • One round of this game can be quick. This can also be a con if you’re looking for a more competitive game and want to spend a half an hour or more playing one round.

Overall I like this game. It’s different and gives you the opportunity to be strategic or you can play relaxed. You can play it with your young children or take it to your next game night. It’s definitely worth having in a game collection.

The winner of this giveaway will receive one Squashed game to add to their game collection!
