Sorry! Card Revenge takes a classic game into the future with this easy-to-learn electronic edition. Players start with 5 cards each and take directions from the host—a fast-talking, oversized, electronic Sorry! pawn with an attitude—as they try to play out their cards into the discard pile. Discard matching card colors or playing cards in numerical order. Discard a Sorry! card on an opponent and they must tap the pawn for directions. The first player to play out his or her cards onto the discard pile 4 times wins. Game includes electronic talking pawn, pawn stand, cardholder, deck of cards, 16 plastic pawns and 4 home boards.
Sometimes it takes some radical re-engineering to breathe new life into a classic board game. In this, the latest incarnation of the old favorite "Sorry", the traditional board has been scrapped, replaced by smaller individual boards given to individual players. But the star of the show is, improbably, a simple red pawn game piece, blown up to enormous proportions and imbued with the power of speech. Players draw game cards from a deck beneath said pawn who offers sassy commentary on the proceedings. It was a touch disorienting for those of us raised on the traditional game but the process of learning to play an old game in a new way offered plenty of challenges and fun. --Charlie Williams
