Hasbro Family Game Night: living rooms and Yahtzee cups

Posted by: Randy at 2/25/2009 8:42 PM
Last week's Hasbro Family Game Night screenshots featured Scrabble, along with the omnipresent Mr. Potato Head.  This week's screens are all about Yahtzee (many of us still feel sorry for John Yan's headlong addiction) along with--yes--that selfsame and still omnipresent Mr. Potato Head.  There's also a look at the different living rooms you can host a game in, from a jungle treehouse, to a 007hideaway.  Expect screens of Battleship and Connect Four in the next couple weeks.

YAHTZEE JOINS SCRABBLE, BATTLESHIP, AND CONNECT FOUR TO MAKE A FULL HOUSE ON XBOX LIVE ARCADE

Pull up a chair in your own customizable game room as YAHTZEE joins SCRABBLE, BATTLESHIP, and CONNECT FOUR for the launch of the Xbox LIVE Arcade Hasbro Family Game destination in March!  Play original YAHTZEE or new versions such as “Block Out” where you can steal the category from your opponent by getting a higher score. 

Roll the dice in style by choosing and customizing the game room you want to play in—whether it’s in the middle of a tropical jungle treehouse, a secret agent’s headquarters or somewhere in between, you can choose exactly where you’d like to challenge friends and family to some classic board game fun.
