Connect 4 Game
This game is incredibly fun and addictive. It is easy to play. One player is yellow and one is red. The player puts their ring on the little launcher then presses down on it and when they let go it launches the ring into the top or bottom tray. The player that gets 4 of the same colored rings in a row wins.
Both players should launch their rings at the same time and this allow things to get hectic. Rings will be flying all over the place, bouncing off each other and landing on top of the other player's ring taking their spot.
There are 2 boards and you can win by getting four of the same color in a row on either board.
Recommended for ages 5 and up. Players 2 to 4.
Get the Connect 4 at: Amazon.com, Walmart.com and Ebay.com.
Bop It XT
This game calls out commands (pull it, bop it, twist it, flick it, spin it, shake it). It's up to the player to do the commands. As the tempo revs up it is up to the player to keep up. Get your play right and you keep going. If you get it wrong then you loose your turn.
If you child is too much of a couch potato then this will be a nice toy to get some movement out of them.
Read through the reviews at Amazon before you buy. Some kids really like this game and then others don't seem to be coordinated enough to find it fun.

The big update is the use of electronic banking. Transactions are completed by the banker debiting or crediting each players account as appropriate.
