Toys R Us has another round of 3-day deals going on, starting today and there are some hot ones. Besides 20% off select Lego and up to $30 off Disney Frozen items, there are a bunch of Hasbro games on for 50% off. Electronic Battleship may be on your to-give list (its actually on mine!), and it is now only $24.97, with a regular price of $49.99.
As I said in another post, my in-laws and I trade family board games at Christmas. This year they asked for ideas as with as many kids as we have, both families probably have quite a few board games. The game they wanted is Battleship, so of course, I've been watching for deals on this game. I could get them the regular Battleship game, which is priced at $20 at Toys R Us, but this looks like much more fun.
What makes it more fun? You can use preset layouts, it makes fun noises and lights up and the best part - you can play against the computer, so you don't need a second player.
I actually think I'm going to order one of these for my oldest son. We played Battleship two nights ago together, as this was a favourite of mine as a kid and he loves it. His younger brothers have trouble playing with him, as getting the letter and number right is crucial and that is a bit tough for him. It is rated for 8 and up, so that makes sense. If I get him this one, he can play it on his own, rather than waiting for me to get my stuff together and sit and take a break with him.
I tried to price compare and didn't find the electronic version of this game at very many stores. I personally think it is a good deal though, considering the regular one sells for what it does at most stores. I'm going to pick up two right now and pick them up at my local store so I know I'll have them by Christmas. While our elves found out that you can order by today to get it by Christmas, this could be iffy if you absolutely have to have it by then. If I did want to get it shipped, it would be free as you get free shipping on orders over $25.
There are lots of other Hasbro games on sale right now too, which look super fun for your family game nights.
