Hasbro Gaming Crate “Binge Gaming” Party Box November 2017 Review
An informative card noting the premise of each game is included so you know what to expect. This was extremely helpful to read through before opening each game.
Ages 8+, 2+ Players
Too cold outside to play corn hole? Don’t worry, this tabletop touchdown game is just what you need! You can play this game literally anywhere for some coin-tossing fun!
There are three different versions that you can play with this. There is the standard two-teams style, a two-team relay style, or a speed chase, which involves four players instead of teams. I played this at home with my husband, so it was just a one-on-one game, and let me tell you, we had a blast! I can’t wait to play with more people so we can try the relay version.
21st Century Problems
Ages 18+, 3-6 Players
The goal of this game is to guess each player’s first-world issues. It’s a great way to tease everyone for the “21st century problems” we all love to complain about. The monthly card notes that in order to win, “you’ll have to know just how miserable and ungrateful your friends really are.”
Basically, the object of the game is to collect as many stars as you can, and that is what will determine the winner. You will start by selecting one person that won’t receive four cards (everyone else gets four cards to look at). Make sure you don’t show anyone your cards! Once you have read your cards, you want to pick one that you know will upset the player without any cards the most. Slide your card on over to that person. That person then picks the most tolerable card to the worst one, and that is how you win stars! Once that round is up, you go to the next person that will be the decider on which 21st-century problems are the worst!
I decided to take this game over to my weekly family dinner to see just how well we all know each other. Let me tell you, this game is so funny and so true! We were all belly laughing through each round.
Hold That Face
Ages 18+, 4-8 Players
We all have faces that we make in certain circumstances that your friends and family could probably imitate or guess what’s wrong fairly quickly. I know I do! This game is all about guessing that face! The goal of this game is to get each player to guess what you are reacting to by your face alone. No words or sounds allowed!
This game has four decks of cards for happy, sad, scared, or mad. You want to select one from each pile for however many teams you put together. You will then go from team to team reading the card, silently making your face into the mirror and seeing if the other team can guess what you are reacting to. Each correct guess earns a point, but if the team guesses wrong, the team making the faces gets another turn.
This game was serious fun and another that I brought to my weekly family dinner. We all realized that we knew each other a little too well!
Bonus Game: Magic The Gathering
This game wasn’t listed on the monthly card so I imagine it is a cool bonus item. From what I could gather with this deck and online, Magic The Gathering is a trading card game. This particular deck comes with two ready-to-play 30-card decks. I can’t say that this is something I think I will get into, but the cards are really cool to look through. I am going to ask around to see if any of my friends would like this unique game!
Bonus Game Pieces
This cool bonus item is a set of emoji-shaped Monopoly pieces that are inspired by Hold That Face! So cool! I might use these the next time I am feeling emotional and just quietly slide one over to my husband so he knows how I’m feeling, hahaha!
The Verdict: This was my first time receiving Hasbro Gaming Crate, and I really loved it! We didn’t play too many board games when I was growing up, mainly because I come from a fairly competitive family, so games weren’t always super fun to play. As we have all gotten older, we have found a new love for board games and realized we can play them nicely together! I was really excited to receive this Hasbro Gaming Crate because each game was right up my alley. I was able to play some at home with my husband first and then took some over to play with my family at our weekly dinners. Each game was so much fun and had us all laughing together so much that now my husband and I want to plan a game night with everyone again! The games are timeless, so I know we will be playing these over and over again!

Value Breakdown: This box is $49.99 a quarter, and I received a total of five products, counting the two bonus items. That calculates out to about $10.00 per item, which is a great overall value for so many board games! While I wasn’t able to find all of these online for purchase, most board games that are similar to these came in well above that average value, so you really are getting a lot for that quarterly cost.
