Hasbro Game Night BEJEWELED Frenzy Game Review

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post.  I received a complimentary BEJEWELED Frenzy game for review.


Monopoly.  Scrabble.  Pictionary.  Who remembers playing these games when you were back in the day?  I remember playing these game on  game night at my house when I was a kid and now that I'm a mom, I'm carrying on the family game night tradition with my family and we're STILL playing many of the games I grew up with.  We've added a few games to our family game nights but this is the first time we've added a game which got it's start online.


Have you ever played Bejeweled?  You know the online game where you try to match gems in a row causing the row to collapse.  My mom loves playing Bejeweled online so when I told her Hasbro was adding a Bejeweled board game to its lineup, she was already making plans for our next family game night.  


BEJEWELED FRENZY

Age: 8+; Players: 2-4 
Approximate Retail Price: $14.99

It’s a sparkly flurry of a card game as kids race to match gems and build the largest stack of cards in Hasbro’s BEJEWELED Frenzy game. Kids will love competing with their friends to collapse their stack, collect Boost Gems and score the most points to win! The game comes with a link to redeem four Rare Gems to be used in the Bejeweled Blitz online game. Mobile device not included. To access the digital features, you must be 13 years or older and have a valid Facebook account. Additional terms and conditions apply to digital features offer.


Our Thoughts:   The game is fairly easy to play:  Match 3 gems just like in the online version, collapse matches and collect gems.  If you've got little ones in your home, be careful as little ones will be attracted to the oversize gems and the sparkly cards.  The game is for ages 8+ but the Littlest One and the Little Old Lady (both 2 1/2 years old) both wanted to join the game and had to be coaxed to play their sparkly cards much to the chagrin of the older kids who were playing rather competitively.  The game is based on the accumulation of points players own by stacking and collapsing gem patterns.  


EDUCATION ALERT: BEJEWELED Frenzy can be used as a learning tool.  Yes, the mom in me really loved playing BEJEWEL Frenzy with my kids because it reinforced patterns and many elementary and middle school math classes teach pattern recognition.  I know, everything doesn't have to be a learning tool but if the kids are having fun AND learning, that IS a win-win.  


The BEJEWELED player in me loves this because it brings to life one of my favorite games and I can play with my family and friends.  No more solo games at my computer or on my cell phone or tablet.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
