Default Dumb dora here! Breeze. What are the hansbro games?

We sail in September on an 8 day cruise. Excited to the Max. but I have read about the Hanbro Games..and I was thinking it is like Disneyworld..the Studio..recording....but then I read a review and it sounded like Trivia and games like that were highlighted.

We love Trivia.We turn up for most matches. We won the Super Duper Trivia Match on the Dream last October...We had the best team ever,,,and we did not know a single one of them pre cruise. That is one of the things I like about cruising..the people you met ..who live in interesting, different places...so....

Is it Trivia?
Scattergories?
Panels on the state like Family Feud?
Does the audience interact?
Do you play in teams?
Do they still have ordinary trivia at other parts of the ship?
Thanks for the information.

It's various games, you don't get to pick your own team. It's the Hasbro Game Show.

They are life size board games played up on the stage where members of the audience are picked to play. Around 8 audience members are picked to play by the cruise director. Usually two games per night. On my cruise it was played two nights.

Below are some of the pictures of them.

If you want to get picked make sure and sit on the bottom floor...not in the balcony...on the end of the row...do not stand in the aisles. You will need to scream, yell, jump up and down and act like a fool to get a chance to answer a question. If the answer is right, you are then picked to go on stage and play the Hasbro game.

Games consist of such things as Yahtzee, Connect Four, Operation and other Hasbro games.

It is a shame you have to act like a fool to get picked.

Thank you all for the pictures. It looks like a family type thing, and while I admire families that take enough time to spend with their kids, it does not look adult. Do they still have regular Trivia Games? If not..I will cancel. My husband...a Jeopardy devotee loves Trivia and the Casino. he spends a great deal of his time in both.

AND my DH and I keep our only grandchild, a two year old beautiful little girl, two days every week during the school term. (DD teaches). And we get down on the floor and play pony...squeak like pigs...and dance with the gang on Yoo Gabba Gabba.

Not meaning to sound like a snot...when it is YOUR little darling...playing froggies and jumping all around the Living Room is pure delight. Plus reading Sammy and the Seal 400 hundred times.
thanks again. Happy cruising to all of you.

So do they not still have Trivia?? Can not imagine that this takes over for all of that?

There was a lot of trivia on the Breeze in December...I don't think you will have a problem finding trivia.

As far as the Hasbro games...we went once...no need to ever go again.

I too, attended "Hasbro" once. Not my cup of tea either. I'd much rather go to a show, see a comic, or even a juggler! (Yep, It's that bad IMO)
