Family Game Night 4: The Game Show Detailed

By Rebecca Smith, 7 years ago
The Hasbro Family Game Night series has been heading further away from traditional board games with each new instalment. Hasbro Family Game Night 2 included Bop It!, although this was never released on the Xbox 360. Family Game Night 3 saw the inclusion of Twister, but unfortunately arrived one month too early for Kinect compatibility. It should be of no surprise then that the newly announced Family Game Night 4: The Game Show will have full Kinect compatibility.

The game is based on the Family Game Night show that airs on The Hub television network, and will come with six activities:

Connect 4 Basketball: the winner is the first team to shoot four balls in a row of one colour
Scrabble Flash: re-arrange tiles to make words - the longer the word, the higher the score
Sorry! Sliders: achieve a bulls-eye or block your opponents with enormous game pieces
Bop-It Boptigon: perform the right movement at the right time at an ever increasing pace
Yahtzee! Bowling: roll giant bowling balls towards the pins for scoring combinations
Monopoly Crazy Cash Machine: large prizes for the family who emerges triumphant

The gameplay can accommodate two players individually or simultaneously, and offers avatar integration. Players can also customise the length of the game show or set different rules.

Family Game Night 4: The Game Show is due to be released in Autumn / Fall 2011.
