It’s a sparkly flurry of a card game as kids race to match gems and build the largest stack of cards in Hasbro’s BEJEWELED Frenzy game. Kids will love competing with their friends to collapse their stack, collect Boost Gems and score the most points to win! The game comes with a link to redeem four Rare Gems to be used in the Bejeweled Blitz online game. Mobile device not included. To access the digital features, you must be 13 years or older and have a valid Facebook account. Additional terms and conditions apply to digital features offer.
As soon as the game arrived Jordan (18) and I played a few games. The rules are very easy to understand basically you each get one card to start with then you deal as many cards as there are players into the card holder, dealer goes first choosing a car that hopefully has a gem that matches there card. When you have 3 matching gems you collapse those cards into a stack and continue playing. Each game takes about 15 minutes to play. We had fun and I won both games.
I brought Bejeweled Frezny with me to church the other night, I often let the girls play a game at the end of class if they get their work done. This time I was playing with a nine year old and an eleven year old. Both girls caught onto the rules quickly and there favorite part was earning the pretty Boost Gems. The older girl loved the game and the younger girl said it was a bit slow but she would play it again.
If you are looking for a fun game that can be played by kids of all ages, Bejeweled Frenzy might be just what you are looking for. To stay up-to-date on all sorts of family game night fun make sure you follow hasbrogamenight on Twitter and on Facebook.
