Who remembers the playground game where you hold your hand out for someone to slap, only to pull it away just in time?
It is one that still gets played to this day, but now there is a whole new game from Jakks Pacific to bring it into the home.
Slap Ninja is the new, fast paced skill and action game for 2 players aged 4+.
There are two ways to play:
- as the Ninja Master who presses the trigger to use his Huge Karate Chop SLAP to defend his precious coin from his sneaky opponent.
- as the Student, you rest one hand on the karate bench and try to tap the coin in the Ninja’s hand to defeat him, whilst the other hand hold the bench leg.
There are three red stars on each side of the bench that light up one by one, depending on which side won the game.
The first player to defeat their opponent three times is the winner, and the loser gets ZAPPED!
The ZAP is a strong vibration for the loser which feels funny, but doesn’t hurt.
Slap Ninja is great fun and the kids love their tournaments. My only feedback is that Sebby (6) struggles to push the trigger hard enough for the hand to register a slap, but I am sure he will get stronger as he practises. The game requires 3 x AAA which are included.
Slap Ninja! It takes seconds to learn, but a lifetime to master!
