Three More Hasbro Game Night Games Announced

    As you may have read in yesterday's Marketplace Schedule - April 6th - April 20th post, the 2009 XBLA Award winners have been announced, with Hasbro Family Game Night picking up the title of "Best Family Game."

    Hot off the press following that victory, EA have announced that there will be three more games joining the seven currently available in Hasbro Family Game Night, each including "original and remixed modes, online and local multiplayer, and leader board support"

    To celebrate the big win and thank all of “the people out there who truly believed a Spud like me could make it to the top of the XBLA charts”, Mr. Potato Head has asked his friends at EA to put together a special collection of new titles to add to the popular HASBRO FAMILY GAME NIGHT line-up:

    JENGA – The original towering, toppling wood block game includes Classic Play and ‘Chance Blocks’, where players must perform challenges, such as removing red blocks or defusing bombs.

    PICTUREKA – Find it fast—find it first! In this exciting game of visual hide and seek, players race the clock—and each other—to see who has the best eyes and who can think outside the box.

    CONNECT 4×4 – With double the grid spaces and double the players, this new take on the original CONNECT FOUR game features a remixed ‘Super Squares’ mode where power-ups reside inside the board itself.
    The games will join the roster of Hasbro board games already available, and while it hasn't been confirmed yet, it is safe to assume that each will have its own 200G achievement list, probably bringing the total for Hasbro Family Game Night up to a whopping 100 achievements worth 2,000G!

    I've done a little bit of digging, and it does appear that Hasbro owns the licenses to all three of these games worldwide, so hopefully that means we won't see the same North American-exclusivity placed on any of the titles like with https://www.trueachievements.com/dlc.aspx?dlcid=79. Hopefully...

    No word on prices (though a safe bet would estimate the same 800 MSP the other titles had), nor on a release date any more specific than Summer.

    Hmm... These are 3 of the games from Family Game Night 2 for the Wii... Minus Operation and Bop it. I wonder it those will be coming as well.

    You'll have to make a stack of your controllers before trying to remove the one in the middle!

    I love Jenga but I don't think I'd ever want to play it in video game form.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who immediately expressed a "Jenga? The hell?" sort of sentiment here. :)

    That's exactly what I was just thinking... I'll hate having 600 missing points because of this, but not enough to spend 30 bucks on filling that hole.

    I would like to see how Jenga would function on the Wii.

    For the Xbox my only guess is a little pressure on the trigger and steady movements with the joystick.

    Buy Boom Blox.
    P.S. Act like my whole post is enclosed in [sarcasm][/sarcasm]. It's easier that way.

    Did you not play Sorry Sliders? That game shouldn't work with a controller, but it kinda does.

    Nope, to be honest I'm not really a big fan of any board game on the Xbox. I have played shuffleboard on a console before though and I suppose it probably works the same as Sorry Sliders. But Jenga, I just can't wrap my head around it.
