Back in August we showed you a cool new toy introduced by game veterans, Winning Moves. These new Splash Cards allowed you to play any game that is normally played with a 52-card deck IN YOUR SWIMMING POOL! I have to say that not only were they a hit with our family, they were a lot of fun for the people whose swimming pool we were “borrowing”. As a “Thank You”, we left our copy with them to continue to enjoy for the rest of the swimming season.
But as a regular reader of SahmReviews you know that this was not our first experience with products from Winning Moves. We were lucky enough to find both Canasta Caliente and Classic Waterworks at our local Goodwill and featured them in our Thrift Treasure series. As with these examples, one of Winning Moves’ specialties is the reissue of classic games that we all grew up with. These are but two from their library and here are three more!
Originally invented in 1904 and a popular stock market simulation game. Shout your deal and trade your cards to “corner” the market. Be the first to get all the cards of one commodity, ring the bell, and you’ll win the hand. You’ll feel like a trader in the “pits” of the exchange! Beware of the Bear and take your chances with the Bull.
Connect 4 & More
Great Connect 4 play and a whole new way! There are 3 new Connect 4 games: Backwards Connect 4, Connect 4 any color, and Connect 4 Teams.
The first, and original, car racing game! Be the first to finish the tour and you win! But look out, your opponents are ready to wreck your journey with penalty cards, such as flat tires and burning oil! Save your remedy cards to help you get you back on your way!
With all of these at great price points (under $10) they make great stocking stuffers or a gift exchange gift for someone who enjoyed them years ago. Be sure to see all the other great classic titles Winning Moves has on their website and give them a follow on Facebook or Twitter to see what else they have in the works.
They’re even having a Ouija event in Salem, MA! But if you have purchased a board, you probably already knew that!
What classic game do you remember playing the most? Do you still own a copy?
