EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Challenge yourself to daring feats with a ping-pong ball when you play the game Smash Pong. This is a two-player or two-team game where players try to complete challenges involving an air-powered launcher and colored ping-pong balls. When you complete a challenge, you earn the challenge card. The first player to earn three challenge cards wins.

First, you pick a challenge card. In all the challenges, you have to get the ball into the bucket. But you might have to do it by launching the ball and bouncing it off of a wall, or launching the ball with the launcher at a 45-degree angle. There are also two player's choice cards that either give you the option to pick your own challenge or give your opponent the option to pick the challenge you must do.

When you've gotten your challenge, load your ping-pong ball into the launcher, slam down on the launcher, and watch the ball fly - hopefully into the bucket. This can send the balls flying up to 25 feet. 

Is It Fun?
We're seeing a lot of these types of challenge games right now, and that's because they're just silly fun. The game does require a bit of skill, so it may take a few tries to get the challenge right, but that's all part of the gameplay. We also like that this game is open to the possibility of players creating their own challenges. The crazier the better. We can see kids and adults sharing videos of themselves playing and successfully completing their challenges on social media.
