Pros: Scooby Doo, fun, easy to play
Cons: setting up game
I was gifted a bunch of games through freecycle a few years ago. A lady had a lot of games that her children had outgrown and I was lucky enough to be the recipient of the games. We love to play games so this was a great gift for us. One game we received in the bunch was Hold On Scooby Doo. We had never heard of the game but with looking at the rules we knew it was something that we would enjoy playing.
Hold On Scooby Doo is recommended for children five and older and requires two players to play. Hold On Scooby Doo is made by Pressman. The object of the game to be the player to not make Scooby Doo fall off the wall.
Hold On Scooby Doo comes with a purple plastic wall frame, forty four orange plastic bricks, a Scooby Doo and Shaggy figure, 2 green ghost hands and rules. The figure is of Shaggy holding a frightened Scooby Doo.
You will need to assemble the wall before playing. Put the wall in the middle of the playing area and stack the bricks to make a solid wall. You will stack the brinks four wide by eleven high. Once the wall is built, place Scooby and Shaggy on top of the wall in the middle.
The first player takes a ghost hand and pushes out one of the bricks. Players keep taking turns pushing out bricks until Scooby and Shaggy fall off the wall. The person who made the wall crumble and Scooby and Shaggy fall is not the winner the other player is.
Hold On Scooby Doo is a fast paced, easy to play game. It is like Don’t Break the Ice but with Scooby Doo and Shaggy.
Hold On Scooby Doo isn’t really educational but it does help with taking turns, strategy and hand eye coordination. Hold On Scooby Doo does not require reading or math skills to play. It also does not require batteries.
We received Hold On Scooby Doo for free but I see they sell it online and in stores for around fifteen to twenty dollars. If you are interested in Hold On Scooby Doo, shop around for the best price.
Hold On Scooby Doo is fun to play but can be a pain to set up. It seems it takes just as long to set up the game as it does to play a game. Of course my children don’t seem to mind this. They love playing over and over.
I think Hold On Scooby Doo would make a nice gift for any child who likes Scooby Doo.
My son liked playing with the Scooby Doo figure outside the game also. The only thing I minded about that was that he would sometimes forget to put it back in the box and we had to search for it before playing. You could actually play without the figure if you really had to. If you knock the wall down you are not the winner. It really doesn’t matter if Scooby and Shaggy are sitting on top of the wall or not.
If you own Don’t Break the Ice I wouldn’t run out and get Hold On Scooby Doo as they are relatively the same game. But if you have a Scooby Doo fan, I think they would enjoy this version of the game.
We have since given Hold On Scooby Doo to my nephew who is a huge Scooby Doo fan and he enjoys playing it as much as we did.
We would recommend Pressman’s Hold On Scooby Doo as it is a fun, quick game to play.
