Summary: The sequel to Carnival Games comes to you complete WITHOUT the best feature of the original - competition mode. Whichever genius figured eliminating multiplayer game functionality and features in the sequel to this multiplayer oriented game was a good idea hopefully has his head on a stake. My family and I were really excited about getting this game until we got it and found that out.
Summary: It's too hard and requires such precise movements to get it right. My kids can't be successful at all, and even my husband and I get frustrated. And, just like another Carnival game we had, it takes too long to watch through all the corny animations to get to actually play. It's gone already - sold in a garage sale. We'll be avoiding this series of games from now on.
Summary: I was looking for something to play with other people and bought this as an cheaper alternative to Mario Party games. My conclusion is that you get what you pay for. It was mildly entertaining for an evening but we were unable to unlock any other levels even though we played the levels it asked for over and over. 2 stars because it wasn't super expensive but if I had it to do over, I would've invested the money in a board game instead.
Summary: we like this game because our two year old can do the blow up the balloon game, mom and dad can do the harder games like speed bingo and there are games for everyone in-between the game catches the feel of a real carnival, i feel getting some cotton candy when we play.
