Peter Parker may not have the best work-life balance, but his masked alter-ego is sure-footed even on the slippiest rooftop. In this Ultimate Spiderman Tip It Game, players test their own balancing abilities, developing their concentration and dexterity as they do. Spin the wheel and see what color ring you must remove. Can you collect three discs of the same color without toppling over the tower? It’s easier said than done with this terrific tipping toy!
Anyone with superpowers has a choice – to be a hero or a villain. In this fun light strategy dice game, players have that same choice. The Ultimate Spiderman Face Off Dice Game pits our favorite webmaster against his thick-skinned foe, Rhino. Players place the five character dice in the awesome Spiderman/Rhino shaking cup and roll. They then decide whether to “go hero” or “go villain,” and roll again. There are more heroes than villains, but the villains are worth more points, so your choice requires thought and consideration. With great power comes great responsibility. Will you be a force for good – or seek out more power?
Can you crawl to the top of this tumbling tower before the Green Goblin tears it down? Spiderman Jenga is a cool variation of the classic cascading block builder. Each player must try to move their Spiderman marker up the building and try to catch the Green Goblin first. Spin the wheel to see how many blocks you must remove and how many stories you can climb. But beware – some blocks (like the Pumpkin Bomb block) have additional instructions that can help or hinder your progress! It may collapse, but this game sure won’t let you down!
