Product Description

Product Description

Here's a game that's hands-down fun! When a player has a pair of cards to play, everyone slaps the Slam-O-Matic. The last slapper loses a card. Full of action, it helps kids release lots of energy-and the only thing getting smacked is the game unit. Comes with Slam-O-Matic game unit, 42 cards and 4 rubber feet. For 3 or 4 players.

Amazon.com

Does he have a pair--or is he faking? Yes! No? What should I do?! Be right, be fast--but don't be last, or you'll end up the loser in Hands Down, Hasbro's "game of slap-happy fun." It's the perfect choice for energetic, competitive 6-to-12-year-olds who love to tease. There's not a lot of strategy involved here--it's something like an energized version of "Go Fish": players draw and combine cards to make a pair, and then--wham!--it's all hands down on the Slam-O-Matic unit (a groovy plastic playing surface sporting four spring-loaded "hands"). Last one down forfeits a card! Hands Down is a hilarious icebreaker as well as a fistful of fun. No batteries necessary. Hands Down can be played by three or four players. --Julie Ubben

Hands Down is another game that has lasted generations. Originally created in the 1960's, it was so much fun that it has remained on toy store shelves and in family rooms since. It seemed when I was growing up that my parents always included at least one game when we were children. Hands Down was the game left by Santa Claus one year.

As my younger brother and I looked at the box, we wondered if it was a dud or if it would be a really cool game to play. We found it to be a blast, especially if we could talk someone else into playing with us.

Hands Down is a cross between a card game and a board game. There is a slapping machine (which has a lever facing each of the four players) and is make of sturdy plastic. When the lever is pushed down, a plastic hand that is the same color as the lever goes down on the card, which is placed in the middle of the machine. Luckily for most parents this machine is already put together so there is no assembly nightmare! A deck of cards is the other component of this game.

The play begins by each player choosing a colored hand (blue, green, yellow or red). Then the cards are dealt - each player receives four cards and the remaining cards are placed face down in a "draw" pile. Each player takes turns drawing a card from the pile - if you get a match, you slap your colored hand down. The last person to slap gets one of his cards taken by the first person that slapped. The slapping machine decides the order because the lever and colored hand are color coordinated and the "hands" lay on top of each other in the order they were depressed. So the colored hand on top is the one who gets a card taken away.

Our family played this game a lot during the 60's. We had a blast with it. I didn't think much about it until this year when my son turned 6. It's a blast for family fun!

A friend brought this to our house to play with my daughter and her daughter. I'm not much of a game person so I sat out the first round while the three of them played - and laughed a lot! Then they drafted me into the second round - it was so much fun I couldn't wait to play again.

It's primarily a game of luck, but you do have to be quick on the "hands down". You don't need any skill, and it's not what I would call an educational game, but for a VERY fun game with friends or family, it's a sure winner!

I got this game for my daughters (now 10 and 14) and it is a riot! You do have to have 3 or 4 players to play but you can't beat the fun! Even Dad, who does NOT play games joined in on this one. The concept is very simple, you try to get matches, if you do you hit your hand down (last one down picks a card) if you don't you can try to fake out the others so you have to pay attention. Helpful hint, put it on a cutting board to save your table because it gets a little wild! 5 stars all the way!

Played this game as a kid. Still love it. Good for teaching observation and matching skills. Not quite as sturdy as I remembered it being.

Simple to play for the young kids. Great fun slapping the hands. Great for a cold and or rainy afternoon inside.

The hands were generic compared to what I played as a child. Numbers used to be on the hands and sturdier plastic
