Nintendo’s New Carnival Games

“I wanna play Carnival Games!”

This is the sentence that greets me multiple times a day ever since I received a copy of the New Carnival Games for Wii in the mail. I can hardly blame the kids, to be honest. New Carnival Games is fun. With six different categories to choose from, each category boasting games of stratgey and chance, New Carnival Games is something all three of my children can enjoy.

The games range from tossing a tennis ball into a fish bowl, to shooting a ball at a clown, knocking out his teeth, to a Haunted House where you can shoot ghosts and goblins. You can even try your hand at driving in the Bumper Cars. Every time the kids play a game they have the opportunity to earn tickets, just like a real Carnival. Those tickets can later be turned in for prizes, or used on games that require tickets to play. It ignites a bit of cometitive drive, allows the kids to use strategy and, for my oldest, it is giving him a chance to practice his math skills.

Who says video games are a waste of time?!

In the spirit of full disclosure, I will say that some of the games are a little challenging for the kids – even for my oldest – but there are enough of the easier games to keep it balanced making this a fun addition to our Wii library.

New Carnival Games retails at only $39.99 making this a great stocking stuffer or under the tree gift. It is available for both the Wii and for Nintendo DS, which means it could potentially be used as you head out on your holiday travels.

    My family has the original carnival game and we play it all the time. So much fun and we would love to be able to play with this one. This would be a great gift. I don’t think anything is wrong with playing video games as long as it is just not 24/7.

    I used to love to play games at the carnivl when I was younger. Now they cost so much. What a fun way to play at home. Love it!

    Bebe Boy James would really like this, but Grandbebe Boy JoJo would LOVE this! When he visits (which is often), most of the games that we have are too difficult for him to play. This would be something much easier and more fun for him! Thanks for the chance to win!
