We have a bit of a disconnect in our house when it comes to family entertainment. We all love games so you’d think that family game night would be the perfect solution, but no…that’s not always the case. You see I like board games and some video games, but not always the same ones my husband and son like. They tend to get bored with traditional board games and I can only take so much war and shooting. Quite the quandry right? That is until now because the Hasbro Game Channel has given our family the perfect solution!
The Hasbro Game Channel is a destination for family game entertainment on leading consoles, featuring games based on Hasbro’s most popular brands, including MONOPOLY, RISK and TRIVIAL PURSUIT. The Hasbro Game Channel is available to download on the Xbox One video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. All games will also be available for download individually on the Xbox 360 from Microsoft and PlayStation®3. The first three brands available on the Hasbro Game Channel will be MONOPOLY, RISK and TRIVIAL PURSUIT, and will offer players a brand-new way to experience these classic brands.
Last weekend my son had his best buddy over and we all played a round of MONOPOLY Plus. It was a ton of fun — honestly I had way more fun than the standard board game because of the interaction that comes with playing on the XBox One console. It totally brings the world’s favorite family gaming brand to a new level with a very colorful and lively animated 3D gaming board that evolves as you progress in the game. MONOPOLY Plus also lets players choose their favorite ‘House Rules’ to customize game play and you can have up to six players (even if you have only one controller that’s charged…yes that happened!).
Unfortunately after claiming that my Monopoly skills were unmatched, I was shamefully beaten by a 12 year old. Have no question there will be a rematch!
At the end of the day, this was some of the most fun we’ve all had in a while and I think we’ll definitely be playing Monopoly Plus on the XBox One on a more regular basis. The Hasbro Game Channel brings a whole new light to family game night!
