Your family takes centre stage in their own game show in Family Game Night 4 for Nintendo Wii. Read Kidzworld’s review for all the details.

Family Game Night 4 for Wii lets you play all of your favorite board games without all the mess.  This is the fourth game in the successful franchise. This time the focus of the game is a fun game show hosted by Mr. Potato Head. You can play by yourself or grab your family and friends to see which team can reign supreme. There are five games you need to master in order to win: Connect Four Basketball, Bop-It Bobtagon, Scrabble Flash, Sorry! Sliders and Yatzhee! Bowling.

Game Trailer

 

Connect Four Basketball

In Connect Four Basketball, players shoot colored basketballs toward a Connect 4 board. The object of the game is to get four of the same colored balls in a row. But, your opponent can try to stop you from reaching this goal.

Bop-It Boptagon

In Bop-It Boptagon, players must follow a list of instructions, pulling, bopping, kicking and twisting their way to a win. If you make a mistake before your opponent does, they get a point. The first team to earn two points wins the round.

Scrabble Flash

In Scrabble Flash, you must make as many words as you can using the same five letters. You cannot use a word that your opponent has already received points for. Try to make longer words so you can earn more points.

Sorry! Sliders

In Sorry! Sliders, players compete in a game similar to shuffleboard and curling. Each team has two sliders they can shoot down the board. You need to land your slider on the right part of the board to earn points. You can also push your opponent’s slider out of the way.

Yatzhee! Bowling

In Yatzhee! Bowling, players must knock over bowling pins in order to uncover numbers. Once you have five numbers you can choose to keep all of them, none of them, or as many of them as you’d like. Then you have one more chance to get new numbers. The player with the higher hand (full house, flush, straight) wins.
