Play-Doh Smashed Potatoes

Play Doh Smashed Potatoes by Hasbro

Play-Doh Smashed Potatoes is a Hasbro game that is fun for youngsters ages 4 and up. It is a lightweight game, weighing only 2.8 pounds. Therefore, it is highly portable. It is a great game to play for youngsters at home, during sleepovers, camping and parties. It is a game that can be played by youngsters all over the globe.

The product dimensions are 15.8 x 10.5 x 2.5.

The game includes a game board, two game board pegs, four cans of play doh, eight mash machine parts, a spinner and two potato moulds. Each player gets to mould a potato pal pawn out of play doh and then move the pawn across the board using the spinner. Depending on where the pawn lands on the game board, the spud can get sliced, snipped or pressed into a chip.

The object of the game is to get the pawn out of the kitchen and back to the farm. The first person who accomplishes this is the winner.

The game is easy to understand and play. However, it is not so easy to win this game. It is challenging as a player gets smashed over and over before they get to the end to win. Initially, my youngster and I kept mashing our potato when landing in the mashing station. However, we soon realized that we should wait for another play to get to the mashed station before we get mashed. Children love mashing the potatoes, making chips or chopping up the potatoes. It is a delightful, non-violent game.

I find that children play this game for a long stretch without getting bored. Once a game piece is smashed, you get to start again. It is a lot of fun getting a chance to demolish the opponent’s play dough character.

Play Doh Smashed Potatoes is a great game to give as a gift to a young one. Everytime we play the game with children other than our own, they ask their parents if they can buy the game. It keeps the young ones occupied for over an hour at a time.
