HedBanz Game Review – HedBanz is a fun, fast-paced game that’s designed for children 8 years and older. It’s actually one of those games that children and adults can play together. This makes it perfect for family game night fun. The rounds are fast enough so that no one has time to get bored with the game. Even if you have just a few minutes to play, you can get in a round or two.
The object of the game is to figure out who or what you are. Who or what you are is determined by the card that you choose. To begin the game each player places a plastic band around their head. Each player then picks up a card, without looking at the picture on the front. The card is then placed into the slot on the front of their band. All other players are able to see the card.
Once each player has their card in place, players take turns asking ‘yes’, or ‘no’ questions. Players continue asking questions until they either know the answer, or time runs out. If time runs out, the next person begins asking questions. Only questions that can be answered with a simple yes or no are allowed.
At the start of the game players are given three chips, when a player correctly guesses what is on their card, they are able to get rid of one of their chips. The player who gets rid of all three chips is the winner.
This game comes with everything that is needed to play including the timer. For those with younger children there is a Hedbanz junior game that’s is a bit easier and appropriate for children who are younger than eight. Hedbanz junior doesn’t use the chips, which makes it even faster to play.
The game is fun, and will provide a lot of laughs as players try to come up with questions to help them narrow down just exactly who is on their card. Pictures on the card can be either food, objects, or animals.
In addition to being a fun game, there are also educational aspects to it. Children learn to reason as they come up with a variety of questions to help them in their quest, they are also working on their memory skills as they keep previous questions and answers in mind. They learn to think logically as they come up with the right questions to help them take a guess.
All in all, it’s a great choice for anyone looking for a fun game to play. Add it to the game closet and you’ll find yourself and your children reaching for it again and again. Get ready for fun, and laughter each time you play.
