The Bejeweled Frenzy Game for both this review and giveaway were provided by Hasbro. Any opinions expressed are my own!
This Spring, I confessed my obsession with the game Bejeweled in my review of the Hasbro Bejeweled Board Game. Well, now they have gone and further fueled my obsession by introducing the Bejeweled Frenzy Game!
This is the “official” game description:
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.
This afternoon I finally had a chance to play the game. Although it is suggested for ages 8+, I figured the super-smart Little R would be a worthy opponent, despite being only 5 years old. (You can see his serious concentration in the picture below!)
The game is FUN!! It was easy enough for a little kid to play (with some helpful hints along the way), but it would probably be MORE fun with kids a bit older or with adults, because then the real strategy could begin. Besides the fun of playing, I also liked that the cards were both nice and thick and PRETTY! They are all sparkly shiny and make for some glittery fun. It's also great that the cards and jewels all pack away in a plastic carrying case. It makes it perfect for taking along on road trips, camping excursions or visits to Grandma's house.
