Take one-part technology and one-part idle time activity, add some high-tech electronics and a dash of creative craziness, and you have – Cuponk! – the newest game from Hasbro.
Quickly soaring to the top of the Top Hot Toys for Christmas 2010 list, Cuponk took the nation by storm. What used to be an idle-time kid’s activity, (or a college dorm party game), has now grown into a national craze with unbelievably creative challenges.
New designs and challenges are propelling Cuponk to the top of many Christmas wish lists for 2011 once again.
Cuponk Game Commercial
Like the old-time Slinky, the humble ping-pong ball has helped folks idle away time while they waited for something, or had nothing else to do. Then bored collage students took it a step further by adding challenges and rewards to bouncing that ping-pong ball into something, like an empty cup.
Now the Cuponk Game by Hasbro has become a Hot Toy for Christmas 2010. Add a few themes, like wrestling or gorillas, flashing lights and sounds, and you have Cuponk! So simple, yet with unlimited, and sometimes unbelievable challenges, this simple cup and ball game is taking the world by storm.
How to play Cuponk
To play the game, players take turns trying to bounce a ping-pong ball into the Cuponk cup in a certain way. When a player succeeds, they get the point and a new round starts with a different “bounce” challenge to accomplish.
The Cuponk game includes:
- An electronic light and sound cup that lights up and makes sounds when a Cuponk ball bounces into it
- Ping-pong balls with custom graphics
- “Challenge” cards which show different types of bounce-tricks a player must do to win the round
- Themed cup-collars or ramps to be used in the challenges
Cuponk Game Themes:
Hasbro currently has three game themes:
- The Gorillanator – King Kong is on the loose, and some of the challenges in this game pack will take play to new heights
- Let it Rip – Just how wild-n-crazy can a challenge get – wait untill you see the ones in this game
- Wrestling – Le Campeon – No simple one-bounce, two-bounce tricks here. These challenge cards take “technique” to new levels.
