Shoppin’ Blowout

Anyone old enough to remember the show Supermarket Sweep? No? Ask your parents. That was then, this is now, which brings us to Shoppin’ Blowout, a fast-paced game that might very well become a family favorite in your home. The game’s object is to collect the items with the highest number of points so that your shopping cart is filled with value at the end of the game. But here’s the fun part: all the players are trying to collect the same items simultaneously, and the first one to grab it and add it to their cart gets to keep that piece. But watch out! Because not only can items be stolen from your hand or out of your cart, but there are other items with no sale tags. If you accidentally add those to your cart, the point value for that item is deducted from your cart at the end of the game. The setup for this game is straightforward and quick. Simply lay out the board, add all the plastic item pieces to random “stores” on the board, grab your shopping cart, and off you go. There is a corresponding app that you can download. The app is a replacement for the included cards and adds a slightly cooler feel. Both will tell you which items each player is tasked with buying each round. Shoppin’ Blowout will surely bring out the competitive nature in all the players, but in an entertaining and enjoyable way. There will be a lot of laughing, and the overall volume in the house might go up a notch, but that’s what makes this game so fun. And no review would be complete without a mention of durability and cleanup. The game board and the pieces are durable, so you don’t have to worry about them getting damaged. Oh, and everything fits perfectly back into the box, ready to pull out for your next Game Night.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

FALL ‘22

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
