DescriptionHasbro Family Game Night 3 is the third installment in the board game-to-video game franchise by Hasbro and EA.
All of the games are more or less true to their board game counterpart, usually having some added mini games or interactive parts not found in the originals. All games can be played in either the Original version or a game mode called Remix, which adds new rules, switches gameplay mechanics, or simply makes it into more or less a new game entirely. There is also the option of playing a full game or a quick game for each of the five games (which either is made up of a much simplified board or fewer rounds than the full version).
The game hub is an amusement park, where all the games are seen as rides or buildings and where the players pick which game they want to play. There is also the option of changing outfits for Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head (who can be seen wandering around the park). After a certain number of games have been played, mascots, confetti, statues and various items are unlocked for the amusement park. They fill no other function than adding visual flair to the hub.
The five featured games in this compilation are:
When the player has figured out all of the essentials, (s)he can go to the pool room in the middle of the mansion and line up the evidence gathered. If it all matches, the player wins the game.
The Remix mode has the same basic game play but with added events, such as rooms getting locked off from investigation, suspects getting murdered as the game progresses and much more.
The Remix mode has the players take turns the game ends when the timer ends or when the game hits 10 bars' length. Whoever has the most points at the end wins.
It doesn't matter which player crosses the finish line first, as the money is all added up after all the players have finished. The one with the most money at the end of the game, wins.
In the Remix version of the game the player earns extra steps by landing on money making spaces or minus steps if landing on money losing spaces. In this version it's a race to the finish , and the player to cross the finish line first, wins.
In the Remix mode, however, the game is real-time and while everyone still gets their turn, there is a ticking clock and anyone can show a hand at any time. There is also only one point card at the time in the middle of the table and all hands are visible to all players.
The Remix mode has the players competing to get a certain number of pieces of cheese first. This version is very different from the Original mode game in that the game takes place on a totally different game board. The players also get to place traps in specific trap slots along the road to hinder other players. Landing on one of the traps triggers a mini game where the player has to time a button push or lose a piece of cheese. There are golden spanners along the way which makes the player immune to one triggered trap.
