Summary: The games are....fun-ish. But half of the games they list require you to purchase them. Didn't I already buy the game? These in game purchases are annoying and just wrong, especially when you consider the fact that this game is not inteded for the hardcore gamers, but made for families (most of whome have a limited income, just saying). Battlefield 4 makes sense to have in game add on's, but family game night?
Summary: We had a lot of problems with this game, especially with the errors telling us we had only sample/trial versions of games, and needed to BUY them to play them. (Uh, hello? We bought the game disk itself?! What was the point?!) After a lot of finagling, and spending a ridiculous amount of time trying to determine what the issues were, the game "magically" fixed itself, and we were able to play the games.
Summary: I got two copies of this game as a gift for me and a long-distance friend so that we could play online together. Well, what EA doesn't advertise is that they've pulled all online functionality from this and hundreds of other titles. This was huge letdown for a couple of people who just wanted to play Sorry from several states away. If you plan to play locally, the games are okay; I recommend just getting the actual board games and having the tactile experience.
Summary: My wife & I were both stuck at home over the holidays with the flu so this collection has been a godsend to keep us from going stir crazy! So far we've only played SCRABBLE and BATTLESHIP, but I'm sure we'll eventually move on to try all of the others. This collection has been a lot of fun. Sure, some of the set-up on SCRABBLE, for instance, could have been better.
Summary: I got these initially because I loved the idea of playing games without the mess of cleanup. However, now I think I would prefer games without a TV on. We did have a couple of fun adult game nights playing scrabble. Nice game to mix it up a bit, or to have a group game night.
Summary: It's so nice to be pleasantly surprised when you purchase something.This is a must for family game night. There are great games to choose from and easy instructions . Also, many levels from beginner to expert.Just remember to share and take turns!
