Hats Off - The Exciting Game of Skill For the Whole Family
Publisher: Peter Pan Playthings, 1968
|Table Game||Action||2 to 4||5+ Years||No dice||No|
In this fun game each player has a special launcher and 6 hats, which are a similar shape to a shuttlecock. The object is to launch your hats into the play arena and land them in holes of your own colour. Of course, many hats miss the play arena altogether and others fall into the holes of the wrong colour. As there is a bonus for being the first to fire all your hats, the game is frenetic with hats flying all over the place as players rush to be the first to say "hats off!"
Scores are tallied using the "slid-o-matic" slider at the base of each launcher. We recommend that 10 points are scored for hats that land in your own target area and 5 points for a hat in the wrong coloured area - this makes for a faster game and engages younger players more.
A charming and fun family game that was popular when most people in Britain had a black and white TV!
