Sparks are gonna fly in this lightning-fast card game! Quickly rid your hand of cards by playing numbers in order. Lay down a run and consider yourself in the zone. But don’t get caught ZZZ-ing or else Zap! – another player will steal the lead! Be the first one out of cards and zero in on the win!
Zip Zap is a super fun, super easy game for kids of all ages to play! All it took was one quick sample round and even the youngest among us were ready to roll! Easy!
No durability concerns here – the cards are made well to last long. With younger players Mom or Dad (or older kids) may want to help with clean-up to make sure no cards are misplaced – otherwise no worries!
So…for a card game to have solid Visual Appeal you have to know that something good is up. Sure – the colors are bright and fun, but that isn’t what makes the look of this game so special…it’s the game play! Watch a couple of kids playing Zip Zap and you’ll seen super-engaged, super-happy kids laughing and having fun. When other kids watch, they can’t wait for their turn! There is no better Visual Appeal than that!
Zip Zap plays fast – and unique each time. Excellent Functionality!
Well…here’s the only downside we could find. After all, Zip Zap is a card game, and with a price tag of more than $10 it didn’t sit quite will with our staff. Cut down on the packaging, make it more simple, whatever needs to happen, our team would have loved for this pricing to come down considerably.
We’ve had plenty of card games in here, but none have been quite as fun to play as Zip Zap. We think it comes down to the game play and the pacing of it – it moves, it keeps kids engaged, and it is fun. And since we’ve never played anything like Zip Zap, it’s easy to see why they’ve earned all 5 stars in this category.
We love Zip Zap! We don’t like the price – but other than that – this game is a hit! It’s easy to learn, built to last, and above all fun to play! You’ll like it! Your kids will like it! We like it! If the price tag doesn’t discourage you, Zip Zap is a great addition to your game collection!
