They sent along their latest game, Bouncing Bots for us to check out and we have to say – WHAT FUN!!!

2017 Preferred Choice Award by Creative Child Magazine. 

Bouncing Bots is the board game where players compete to get the best score by bouncing their bots on the highest valued numbers on the target boards. Score the most points to win!


To play, you set up both targets in front of the dueling players.  Each player selects two of the same colored bots.  There are 3 variations of the game depending on how many players you have.  This game can be played as a single-player challenge where you try to bounce 4 bots onto the target to score a minimum of 9 points to become the Wobbly Widget Warrior.

The game can also be played as a two player speed challenge game.  In this version, one of the players yells bounce and both players bounce their bots simultaneously.  The first player to land 2 bots on his or her target and yells BOT wins that round.  First player to win 3 rounds wins the game.

Finally, the game can be played by 4 players in the multi-player challenge.  Each player bounces both of his bots, taking turns between players.  After all bots have been bounced on to the targets, points are added and the player with the most points (with a min of 9) wins.

This is easy for young children as the targets can be turned over to form a bowl making bouncing the bots easier to stay on the target.  It’s also a great family game to play with kids of any age, even teens.  We liked playing this sitting on the floor and bouncing the bots off the carpet – it wasn’t as loud and proved a bit more of a challenge as we played with older kids.

Games are sold exclusively on Amazon and their website,
