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

Don't blow your chance at winning the new game of skill and suspense, Blowfish Blowup. Inside a plastic fish bowl are all sorts of treasures: coins, keys, gems, and rings. Take turns reaching inside the bowl to retrieve a treasure. But beware of the blowfish in the middle. If you make the blowfish inflate, you're out of the game. 

There are two ways to play once someone has inflated the blowfish. You can reset the game and have the remaining players continue playing until there is only player left, or you can have the remaining players count up their treasures, scoring points based on what treasures they have. The player with the most points wins.

Is It Fun?

This is a great combination of easy gameplay with a lot of suspense. Your steady hand skills will be tested each time you reach into the bowl, and you never know when the blowfish will blow, a surprise that young players will really like.

Who It’s For

Blowfish Blowup is for two or more players ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

You will have to assemble the game before you play, and the instructions are easy to follow. However, we did encounter some issues trying to reset the game after playing. When we pushed down on the fish to reset, it would inflate right away. We couldn't seem to figure out a fix for it; just keep trying until it finally clicks.
