A fun game the whole family can play!
Just like in the traditional version of the game, Sorry Spin players draw command cards in order to race their pawns around the board towards home. In this version, however, each of the playing boards actually spins, thanks to five gear-shaped disks that link them all together.
If players land on a spin space or draw a spin card, they get to rotate the central board and change everyone's position--for better or for worse. That makes the race for the win uncertain and more exciting, so the 30 minutes Hasbro says to allow for the game will surely pass quickly.
Fun for the Whole Family
Sorry Spin is a fun game the whole family can play. Designed for ages six and over, the game features command cards with simple wording that's ideal for those just learning to read. Also, the game pieces are designed to fit small hands, so moving pieces around the compact board is easy. When it's time to spin, the finger holes used to rotate the boards will easily fit children's fingers, and the boards will turn smoothly.
From Box to Game in Minutes
Sorry Spin comes packaged as five separate disks with interconnecting tabs that lock together to make the playing boards. Assembly is easy when parents help children carefully fit the tabs and disks together--at the same time--to link the boards. All that's left is to stack the cards, choose colors, and decide who goes first.
What's in the Box
Five rotating game discs, five plastic disks, four plastic arms, four rubber feet, 16 pawns (four of each color), 42 cards with storage box, and instructions.

1) Assembly is required. No tool are needed but you do have to align the cogs so they spin properly and make sure all tabs are clicked in place, or the spinning function will not work smoothly. It took me a total of 5 minutes to assemble the spinning board. I did have to take out a couple of the home zone parts and re-attach so the cogs aligned properly. I think if you get it right the first time and do it when your children are not around trying to "help", then it should easily be done in a couple minutes.
2) The play instructions are easy to understand and follow. There are colored pictures to aid in visualizing the explanation of the rules. The game is rated for Ages 6+ and that seems right on the mark where my kids were concerned. My 6 1/2 year old was able to sit and follow the structure of the game whereas my 3 yr old wanted to randomly move the pawns and spin the board like it was a merry-go-round.
Both kids did lose interest after about 15 minutes, as did I. I would recommend this game to play when you need to fill a short period of time or along with other games when playing for longer.
It plays remarkably similar to original Sorry. With its simple, unpredictable card-based game play and its quick turnaround action, Sorry Spin can be great fun, but it is hardly a replacement to its predecessor. I prefer the sensation of thumping pawns along on a durable one-piece classic board over the airy feel of a hollow plastic system of cogs.
It's a little bit different. It's fun. I just prefer the original.
Whether you'll like this game mainly depends on whether you like the original Sorry. In my opinion, the game (both original Sorry and Sorry Spin) is too simple for adults, but perfect for young children. Although there are a couple of new elements, this game plays very similarly to the original. The game pieces are pretty, and the I really like the spinning gears that comprise the board. One aspect I find valuable is that you can let someone else win, and you have some control over how long the game will last. If you've played with young kids, you understand the value of these attributes.
It's flexible enough in how you divide your moves, on certain cards, that you do have an element of strategy, but this game is mostly one of luck. I think it would be a great aid to a child learning how to count, or working on subtraction skills.
The board does not fit back into the box, once assembled, so I simply never put it back in there. Nothing on the board broke... but I just don't think it will last if I keep snapping it together and apart. I got a medium pizza box (clean and unused) and it solved the problem. Having something more than a piece of cardboard to play on really helps keep kids interested.
To sum it up: if you really like Sorry, consider buying this game. If you're looking for something as complex as holographic nuclear laser chess, this isn't what you're looking for.
But that's not how the game is played. You move around the main circle but the SORRY cards often ask you to rotate -- not spin -- the gears and reconfigure where your game pieces are in relation to where they need to go. It's not very complicated but it is rather ingenious. How do they come up with these things?
My wife's biggest concern was, how do you get it back in the box. Will it end up like other toys and games that were not designed with how to store them? Actually it's pretty easy to disconnect the gears and get them back in the box.
I grew up playing the original SORRY, a fun classic game that's kind of like Parchessi with cards instead of dice. The classics are classics for a reason, but this game is a nice variation with just enough gimmick but not enough to overshadow the fun of the original.
