I love gaming with my family, and that usually means classic board games and cards that are apprioriate for my daughter's age. Recently, we have revamped our game nights by playing some serious rounds of Hasbro's new Twister Dance.
The game updated the classic Twister, which I still love, by adding a new spin on the game where players have to dance on colorful spots (red, blue, yellow and orange) to either programmed music or tunes for your own music player.
How it works is simple. You choose either the programmed music, which features songs like "Till the World Ends," TWISTER REMIX, performed by Britney Spears,"Whip My Hair," performed by Willow Smith, "We R Who We R," performed by Ke$ha,"Cupid Shuffle," performed by Cupid, and "Caught Up in a Twister"or music from your MP3 player, where you will have to follow the bright lights from the Twister console and keep up by dancing on the colorful Twister spots. With your own music, the innovative console works by detecting the music and creating the lights for you to dance along. This includes dancing at three levels: Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced that will have you moving in seconds.
We stuck to the beginner level, and since my daughter is four we had fun moving around and dancing to the music but had difficulty sticking to the beat. In this Twister that doesn't really matter since the game is all about moving, having fun, and simply enjoying a new way to spend time together.
Britney Spears, who joined forces with Hasbro in early February to release Twister Dance, said, '??Dancing has been such an important part of my life since I was a little girl. As soon as I saw the new Twister Dance game, I knew I wanted to be involved. I think kids will love rocking the spots and dancing to the music as much as my boys and I do. It'??s a lot of fun!'? In the video, Britney shows off her famous dance moves while playing Twister Dance.
Besides launching a new music video, Britney is also inviting fans to be a part of her new fansourced video. By showing how they rock the spots to Twister Dance, fans will have a chance to be a part of the video, and will also be entered for a chance to win $10,000!
