Be Fast or Your're Last! Get Ready! Here's a game that's hands-down fun! When a player has a pair of cards to play, everyone slaps the Slam-O-Matic. The last slapper loses a card.
Full of action, it helps kids release lots of energy-and the only thing getting smacked is the game unit. Comes with Slam-O-Matic game unit, 42 cards and 4 rubber feet. For 3 or 4 players. Amazon.com Does he have a pair--or is he faking? Yes! No?
The object of the game is to make the most pairs. If you are the last person to 'slap-in' after as a pair is played ['Hands Down'] then you lose a card from your hand.
What should I do?! Be right, be fast--but don't be last, or you'll end up the loser in Hands Down, Hasbro's "game of slap-happy fun". It's the perfect choice for energetic, competitive 6-to-12-year-olds who love to tease.
There's not a lot of strategy involved here--it's something like an energized version of "Go Fish": players draw and combine cards to make a pair, and then--wham!--it's all hands down on the Slam-O-Matic unit (a groovy plastic playing surface sporting four spring-loaded "hands"). Last one down forfeits a card!
