My boys are big time into Marvel and DC Super Friends characters. As a family, we’re all into games. The Joker Fun House game from Wonder Forge Games was perfect for us since it tied both of those into one!
Calling all Super Friends: The Joker is up to his usual tricks, and he must be stopped! Superman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Batman team up, calling on their special powers — X-ray vision, lightning speed, force fields, and the Batarang — to dodge The Joker’s gags and stop him in his tracks before he reaches the getaway car. The Fun House game board is supercharged with preschool play power: a wacky rolling ball, secret messages, and a launching Batarang will draw young super heroes into the action!
My kids couldn’t wait to play this game. I was pleased at how easy it was to set up, and how clear the instructions are. This game is for ages 4+, and can be played with 2 or more players. As long as your child knows his colors and numbers (or has someone to help him), he can play this game!
It is so much fun because it’s the good guys (Super Friends) vs the bad guy (The Joker). One player is The Joker and the other players are the Super Friends. Super Friend players must team up and work together to get everyone to the finish before The Joker reaches his getaway!
There are quite a few pieces to the game. The Super Friends have a spinner, and The Joker has a spinner. Each Super Friend has a fun special power that helps to defeat The Joker, but even Joker has something up his sleeve to keep from being captured. The super powers are a blast for the players and those watching the game as well.
My kids loved this so much we decided we needed to bring it to church on Sunday and share it with their friends. All of the kids loved it, and they did such a great job taking turns and cheering each other on. Many of the parents wanted to know where they could get the game for their kids because everyone loved it so much.
We play this game on a daily basis here at our house, and I anticipate it coming with us to church weekly now as well.
