Product Description This isn't your parents' Spin the Bottle. Back in their day, they actually had to use a gross empty bottle that didn't spin very well. Borrrring! Electronic Spin the Bottle takes the old party favorite out of the dark ages and into the 21st Century. The see-through blue plastic bottle lights up when you spin it and makes cool sound effects as it whizzes around. When it comes to a rest, the light beaming out of the bottle cap will leave no doubt as to whom it is pointing to. Over 130 commands are programmed into 3 categories: Truth, Dare or Kiss/Forfeit. Tell the truth - which teacher is the most boring? We dare you to dance under the table! Will you kiss the spinner's nose, or will you forfeit? The bottle is held in place by a stand, so you can really give it a good spin, and let the fun begin! Comes with electronic bottle, stand, instructions and batteries. For ages 9 and up.

George managed to beg off with a simple "Oh myyy." That never seems to work when I do it.
And so we played. I'm unsure how Betty pulled it off, but no matter how I spun, it never pointed to Pierce. Nope. It always went to Betty, like some possessed green arrow. "Come here ya big teddy bear!" she'd say. "Who's ready for seven minutes in heaven?"
Now, don't get me wrong. Betty's not a bad kisser, but come on. She knows my bread is buttered on the other side.
Taking pity on me, George got me the "Electronic Spin The Bottle" game--something "to keep at the ready, in case of Betty" he said with a laugh. The next time she popped by for cocktails, this time with Liza Minnelli and Daniel Craig in tow, I brought out my new toy.
"But I already brought a bottle," Betty complained, waving that green fiend of hers.
"Don't get your Depends in a bunch," George chirped. "It's time to upgrade. What's the matter?" he asked, with a wink at Liza. "Afraid of a little girl-on-girl action?"
"I have an idea," Betty deflected, clapping happily on her jumpsuit. "Who's up for charades?"
As he set down the device and pressed the button to begin, the bottle spun, and everything went into slow motion. I became lost in the depth of his sea blue eyes, and wasn't released from the rapture of his gaze, until my best friend tugged on my arm and said, "It's you! It landed on you!" As that back-stabbing ex approached for his kiss, my life changed forever. I stabbed him in the back. I would have never been able to have my revenge if not for this wonderful game.
There were about 15 of us at a summer party last year at a house in California. It was mixed company and I didn't know everyone there (some being friends of friends). There was music, alcohol, and food. Pretty standard vanilla weekend party, right? Well, the party had been going for about an hour when Jon turned down the music and announced that we're all going to play spin the bottle.
First, some background on Jon. He's the type of guy who always brings a guitar to a party and plays Wonderwall by Oasis. He drives a Porsche his dad essentially gave him and he basically thinks he's god's gift to women.
Because it was Jon's party (as it was at his house and all), I knew sooner or later he was going to turn the spotlight on himself. Well, it was either this or Wonderwall, I guess. As we all gathered around in the living room I wondered aloud how we were going to play 'spin the bottle' in the middle of a carpeted room. That's when he produced his fancy 'bottle'. It was the electronic thing featured here. Again, if you know Jon, he's always got some gadget or remotely controled junk from Amazon. Honestly, I don't know where all of it goes. I swear he must just throw it away a week after he gets tired of playing with it. This electronic 'spin the bottle' game must have been his fascination of the day.
So we're all sitting around like we're preparing for some some sort of séance and he starts it up. He shows off the different modes, which consist of some flashing lights, a robotic voice, and some spinning.
"Is this thing really necessary, I mean can't we just use a plain beer bottle and our imagination?", I ask. "Hey, just give it a shot man" replies Jon.
Jon messes with the controls and the robotic voice announces: "KISSING GAME". There are some side looks around the room and some giggles. I catch Sarah's eye and then we both look away. I invited Sarah to the party hoping get to know her better in a relaxed social setting. It would be beyond my dreams to get paired up with her by robo-bottle. As the thought entered my mind I felt a wave of anticipation and nervousness pass through my chest.
After the first two people were chosen, the phrase "KISS ON THE CHEEK" rang out like it was spoken by a robotic choosing hat from Harry Potter. "Awww" "Sweet" were some of the comments after the peck was given.
This continued for a while and everyone seemed to be having fun. With the next spin, the bottle gradually stopped at Sarah. Her eyes slightly widened and she dropped her gaze to the floor. The friend she came with exclaimed "Ooooohh Sarah!" and the bottle started again. Now, with a normal bottle you can anticipate where it will stop as it slows down. The action on this e-bottle was uneven and mechanical. It spun around a few revolutions and then abruptly stopped pointing at me. A thousand things went through my head and I could feel my heart beating in my throat. I raised my eyebrows and began to say something when Sarah got up. She was flushed red and bumped her way out of the circle. Jon was the most vocal, saying "Aw, come on. Don't be like that". As Sarah hastily headed for the kitchen, I looked over at her friend who dropped her eyebrows and motioned me with a head tilt toward the open door Sarah just went through.
I waited until the bottle was spinning again and got up to follow her. When I got to the kitchen, it was empty but I could see Sarah through the window on the deck. She looked back when the door opened then resumed gazing at the neighborhood lights below. "Is this deck taken?" I asked. Immediately, my conscience berated me with an "I'm the village idiot" thought. "Hey" she said with a half-smile.
"Look, about that in there, it was just a stupid game. It..." I started to say. "It's fine", she started. "It's just... well... not in front of everyone", she finished. "Ok, so I'm not some hideous thing the bottle would have forced on you", I said. "Whatever! You're nice", she said. We talked for a while on the deck about simple stuff like where she was from, what I was doing that summer, and the job she hated at the mall.
After a bit we decided to join the party again. When we walked back into the living room it took a few seconds for our eyes to adjust because the lights were out and they were now using a few candles to light the room. Everyone was silently gazing at the glowing bottle. "Hey, are you sure about using candles on the carpet, I mean..." I started to say. Jon broke his gaze and screamed "SHUT THE F@#$ UP!". That startled me into a quick silence. I shot Sarah an incredulous look to see her trying to make sense of the situation. As I stood there, I noticed there were small piles of things near the bottle. Some sticks, some brownish/blackish stuff (it was too dark to make out) and a pile of what looked like hair. The bottle spun twice; choosing two people in the circle. It then commanded: "BRING THE CHILD". The two that were chosen by the bottle rose up with dead-pan looks in their eyes.
I grabbed Sarah's hand and pulled her back into the kitchen. "What the hell was that and what the hell is going on?" she said shaking. "I don't know... I don't know what happened, but I think we need to leave" I said as I tried to give her my most reassuring 'trust me' look as my nerves danced in my gut. She shakily agreed. We exited through the garage and left in my car. "Bring the child? What were they going to do?" Sarah asked when she was settled enough to talk. "Look, I don't know but maybe we should call the cops or something, like, just to have them check it out", I said.
Well, besides being freaked out, Sarah and I are safe. However not everyone got out unscathed. You can read more about what happened later in the local paper. It's... bad.
But I had to warn you about this thing. It looks like there's just one left.
I honestly hope it gets purchased and destroyed.
