If you believe Punxsutawney Phil, we still have six more weeks of winter ahead of us. We don’t mind though – we’re having way too much fun hiding out from the cold and playing our favorite games!


Whether they’re played around the kitchen table, on the computer, or on a smart phone – there are many ways to enjoy games! Hasbro is excited to introduce zAPPed Gaming, which combines the fun of traditional face-to-face game play with the increased functionality of digital gaming for a brand new, innovative experience. The Game of Life zAPPed, released Friday, brings the family-favorite game to life with the integration of an iPad. Simply cue up The Game Of Life zAPPed app on the iPad, place the iPad on the zAPPed game board, and watch as the technology of the app and the game pieces bring the game to life. Players can create and upgrade their own Peg Person and spin The Game of Life virtual spinner. When landing on a zAPPed space on the game board in their brightly colored car, players may unlock special features such as mini games, comical animations or a hilarious clip from “America’s Funniest Videos.”

The Game of Life zAPPed Edition is currently available on and for $24.99 and will be available in Toys “R” Us stores nationwide March 1. The accompanying app is available as a free download in the App Store. This month, we’re offering The Game of Life zAPPed edition for you to review.
