Enjoy a Family Fun Night with Star Wars games from Hasbro

 ** A Geek Daddy received the featured products to review for free **
We try to devote an evening each week for either a family movie watching or game night, but recently we combined those two themes to enjoy a Family Fun Night playing some great Star Wars games from Hasbro.  My passion for Star Wars has rubbed off on my kids so our whole family was excited about having some fun playing games like STAR WARS LOOPIN' CHEWIE and STAR WARS R2-D2 BOP IT!  Thanks to our friends at Hasbro, we're also sharing our excitement about these great games by giving away a huge prize pack of Star Wars games to one lucky A Geek Daddy blog reader.

Both of my children really had fun with Loopin Chewie which we played for over an hour during our Family Fun Night.  While my son tends to be more of the Star Wars fan of my two kids, the competitive side of my daughter really came out as she faced off against her brother and parents - she had such a blast playing this game I don't need the Force to foresee us playing Loopin Chewie a lot more in our future.

One of the most recognizable characters from the Star Wars saga, Chewbacca, has been combined with the wild fun of Hasbro's popular children's game LOOPIN' LOUIE to bring zany, fun-flying action from a galaxy far far away to your home right now.  Recommended for ages 4 & up, players must help CHEWIE co-pilot the MILLENNIUM FALCON by sending him swinging straight into the STORMTROOPERS on the other players racks.  Use the lever in front of you to knock the Millennium Falcon away from your rack of stormtrooper helmets as it soars around the play area while trying to swing it into your competitors rack.  Time when you hit the lever just right and you can really get Chewbacca flipping the Millennium Falcon around.  The last person with a stormtrooper helmet not knocked over is the winner of LOOPIN' CHEWIE!

Another game our whole family enjoyed was BOP IT! STAR WARS  R2-D2 Edition Game.  Since we got this game there have been a few times I've been at home and heard R2-D2 chirping in the other room to find my wife playing this game.  In this game where you have to quickly follow instructions to bop it, twist it or pull it my wife has gotten up to 62 repetitions.  Impressive, most impressive especially when I average about twenty before messing up and my daughter is at about eight.  My daughter has really latched onto this R2-D2 Bop It! game not only because she likes playing the game but it is also a sturdy built model of the droid and has great sound effects to also make it perfect for just playing pretend Star Wars adventures with her other toys.

Just like the classic BOP IT! game, players must twist, bop, and pull the R2-D2 figure in response to his commands to be the last JEDI standing in this fun and fast reactionary memory game.  The BOP IT! STAR WARS R2-D2 Edition Game which is recommended for ages 8 and up features STAR WARS movie sounds and the voice of C-3PO.  If this cool toy has caught your attention note that it is exclusively available at Wal-Mart.  I honestly have to say this is one of the best Star Wars branded items I've come across recently and if you are shopping for a fan this is something that is sure to delight if you pick it up for them.
