Slap Wacky! Named Winner of a Parents' Choice Award

After being thoroughly evaluated by Parents’ Choice Foundation’s panel of educators, scientists, performing artists, librarians, parents and kids, Morning Star Games’ new card game, Slap Wacky!, was named as a winner of the Parents’ Choice Fun Stuff Award.

 “We are very excited about this honor,” says the game’s creator and Morning Star Games President Allen Wolf.  “Slap Wacky has been catching on with kids and families across the nation.  It’s great that the Parents’ Choice Foundation has recognized how amazingly fun this game is.”

The Parents’ Choice Foundation is the nation's oldest nonprofit guide to quality children's media and toys. The Foundation’s purpose is to search out and recommend fun, safe and socially sound  products that help kids grow – imaginatively, physically, morally and mentally.  Parents’ Choice Foundation strives to provide parents with reliable, unbiased information about tools to help their children learn, explore new challenges, discuss ideas and pursue dreams.  Slap Wacky! was chosen from among hundreds of games submitted to the foundation.  Only three other games were awarded the Parents’ Choice Fun Stuff Award.

To play Slap Wacky!, players compete to connect the most shape patterns with their cards.  The player who completes a pattern slaps it and takes the cards for the points.  Six different patterns can be created at a time and players use block cards to slow others from completing shapes.  When the cards run out, players count the points from their cards and the player with the highest points wins.  At the recent Mensa Mind Games competition, judges noted that Slap Wacky is “a fun game that evokes speed and challenge and is enjoyable for numerous rounds of play.  The bright colors and unique patterns are engaging.”

Slap Wacky! has won multiple awards including the 100 Best Children’s Products by Dr. Toy, iParenting Media Award, Seal of Excellence Award from Creative Child, the Adding Wisdom Award and The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval.  An iParenting Media Awards Reviewer calls Slap Wacky! “fun and wacky.  It encourages group play and family interaction which is a lot of fun and very important in this day and age.  This game allowed our children and us to interact with one another and we had a very enjoyable time together playing it.”

Wolf got the idea for Slap Wacky! while preparing for his annual game night.  “I created the test version of the cards to play it with my good friends.  It was immediately a hit.  You can play a game in under 5 minutes so we found ourselves playing it over and over to see who would win.”

Slap Wacky! is for ages 7 and up and retails for $11.99. Games are available at specialty toy and game stores or on the web at
