What It Is
The classic carnival attraction becomes a wet and wild suspense game. Dunk Hat from Hasbro is a classic Dunk Tank, like you've seen a million times, but this one you wear on your head! Seriously. The game has adjustable straps that allow it to be customized for any head. There's a tank on the top, and two targets on either side of the face. Oh, and goggles that are connected to the unit and cover your eyes. Fill the tank and then take turns tossing the foam balls at the targets. When you score a hit, your opponent gets wet. That's really all there is to it. Keep playing until it's time to dry off. Ideal for outdoors, but you could probably play indoors, since most of the water lands on your the person getting doused.
Is It Fun?
Like all suspense games, half the fun is anticipating the moment when it all blows up. In this case, when the tank tips over and you get drenched. This is great game for two players or more, and it lends itself to creating all kinds of "house rules."
Who It’s For
This is designed for kids ages 5 and up, but people of all ages who like the silly fun will get a kick out of it.
It's not for people who don't like to get wet or, say, the Wicked Witch of the West.
What To Be Aware Of
If you tilt your head slightly forward when you get hit, more of the water falls in front of you. That's either something you want or not. House rules!
The hat stays a lot more stable if you adjust it to fit players' heads snugly. Fortunately, it's very easy to adjust between turns.
