Big Little Games Super Shooter Basketball Review (PlayMonster)

What It Is

Big Little Games Super Shooter Basketball is a mini basketball game for one or more players. There are three games to play: Horse, Around the World, and 3-Point Shootout. In Horse, the first player decides where they want to shoot the ball from, and places the shooter there. Then he places a basketball on the shooter. When ready, tap the back lever of the shooter to shoot the ball. If you make the shot, the next player must try to make a shot from that same spot. Anyone who misses after the first player gets an "H." If the first player misses the first shot, the next player tries from any spot. Once someone makes a beginning shot, everyone else must make that same shot or gain a letter. When you miss enough shots to spell "horse", you are out of the game. The player left after others spell "horse" is the winner.

In Around the World, players must make shots from seven different spots around the basket. Keep going until you miss a shot. On your next turn, you can start at the spot where you missed. The first person to make it back to the first position and to make the last shot wins.

For 3-Point Shootout, each player must shoot four times from five different spots around the basket. The player who makes the most baskets on their turn is the winner.

Super Shooter Basketball comes with a hoop with fold-down backboard, an attachable basketball shooter, and three mini basketballs.
