Same game, just with hip/trendy photos and sayings.
on August 30, 2014
This Spot It Hip version is just a slight change from the original Spot It game in that the photos on these cards are meant to represent a more hip feeling vibe. Examples of the photos and captions are: pound symbol, "Fo Sure", converse like high top sneaker, mustache, nerd glasses, "bro", "sup", @ symbol, tube sock, under wear-"tightie whities", balloon dog, roll of cash, video game controller, bacon, zombie, sushi, head phones, cassette tape, album, "Angry Kitty", robot, unicorn, "dude", coffee to go cup, donut, thumbs-up, dinosaur, and boombox. There are many more also. Other than the different pictures and sayings its the same game as the original Spot It. My family loves to play games of all kinds together. We played this game once through all the cards and none of us got excited. We all kind of just looked at each other and collectively thought, "this is it?!" Because the game is fast paced, and each "hand" is a race for who can state out loud first what the single matching pair of pictures is between the two cards, we found that we didn't have any conversation while playing. A round for us was just watching the cards being turned over, looking for the match, then turning over the next pair of cards. We did not find it to be very fun or stimulating, or engaging. I think this might be fun for very young players. The game is listed for ages 7-adult and for two to eight players. My family of four (2 teenage boys and 2 adults) got through all the cards in well under ten minutes.
