    What’s It About?

    King Pong is a deceptively simple game.

    Players are faced with a strange transparent box with a configuration of pyramid shapes inside. It does actually look like something you would find in a sci-fi film. Around the box are four trays (which we’ll get to in a bit)

    “These days it isn’t hard to find family games that are fun and challenging for both kids and adults. That said, there is something classic and cool about Rummikub. ”

  44. dina dos santos

    Now while Anti-Monopoly may share quite a few elements with its more well-known counterpart, these two board games are quite different. Where good old Monopoly focused on teaching you about managing your cash flow and about eventually becoming a monopoly in order to be victorious, Anti-Monopoly, as the name suggests, turns this concept on its head. Instead, Anti-Monopoly has two factions competing against each other, the monopolists and the competitors.

    While Monopoly is considered one of the most beloved board games out there, there are those who believe that the game’s focus on monopolies is poisoning young minds and that teaching them about the continual battle between large empires and small businesses are far more important. Enter Anti-Monopoly.

  62. Matthys Van Eyssen

    In an industry, filled with all kinds of shiny new board games with interesting mechanics, Anti-Monopoly, just as its counterpart, suffers from outdated mechanics and a dull design which makes really difficult to stand out.

  63. Felicity

    Now, this might sound like I’m reading to much into the game, but I found that kids can learn valuable life lessons by just having fun, no matter how simple the game might seem. Who would’ve thought that a game called King Pong would be able to help me teach my kids about life?

    Kids do so enjoy playing games with their parents. Special bonding time :)

  64. David

    “Although Anti-Monopoly should be commended for approaching the Monopoly concept from a different angle (some would say a more realistic one), there are a few issues with the game.”

    King Pong, the crazy ball bouncing game; where the first person to bounce all of their balls into their opponent’s tray wins. Who will be the next King Pong champion?
    Bounce it high or bounce it low this game tests your accuracy and speed, as you attempt to bounce your balls one by one through the open window or down the funnel at the top. Empty your tray and you get to shut the door claiming defeat on your rivals.

    “These days it isn’t hard to find family games that are fun and challenging for both kids and adults. That said, there is something classic and cool about Rummikub.

    Many of us, no matter our age, are familiar with a little board game called Monopoly. It’s a board game that has taught many young kids about money and the dangers of not having any. While Monopoly is considered one of the most beloved board games out there, there are those who believe that the game’s focus on monopolies is poisoning young minds and that teaching them about the continual battle between large empires and small businesses are far more important. Enter Anti-Monopoly.

    Where trivia games tend to be overly long and drawn out, a game of 20 Questions plays surprisingly quick, even with the full complement of 7 players.

    Over the years, board games have evolved from simple answer and question fests into complicated and involved beasts with various mechanics and hordes of little plastic or wooden pieces. Aity of the board games of days gone by. I still have fond memories of testing my general knowledge with board games like Trivial Pursuit and realising just how little I know. So, when I received 20 Questions I was excited to dive into the world of trivia once again, for better or worse.

  167. Zamandayi Kunene

    You’ve all probably played any one of the many stacking games out there; you know the kind, stack one wooden block on another until the stack inevitably falls over. It’s a very basic principle and one that proves that even the simple task of carefully stacking something can be entertaining. What most of these stacking games thrive on is the tension created when placing (or removing) a new block. It’s this tension that makes playing these deceptively simple games so much fun. So, how does one improve on the age-old formula of stacking? By cranking up the tension even more, of course. Boom Blast Stix does just this by adding an element of surprise to the tension making sure each failure is a memorable one.

    I chose this one because, Jared, it’s not relevant to only the new (and dull) anti-monopoly, but also this pretty little thing called life. Either you win by making others bankrupt, or you win by being the richest.

    Adulthood in a nut shell.

    P.S: The pawns are dull, because when we kids, everything was fun. You could be a boat, a dog or a shoe. Nobody would bat an eye. Now you’re an adult, you pretend to be a hat, everybody loses their minds.

    So, be a boring pawn.
