Big Potato Blockbuster

If you’re feeling reminiscent over the once popular home movie rental service, or simply want to showoff your acting skills, then the Blockbuster game from Big Potato is for you. Made for a minimum of two people, this retro-inspired game has two parts. In the first, two players from opposing teams go head-to-head in a movie buzzer battle. In the second, it’s time to brush up your acting skills as each person reinacts as many movies as they can whilst their team guess. So whether it’s just the two of you after the little ones have gone to bed, or your aim is to tire tiny tots; this nostalgic game will have you taking a trip down memory lane.
