#BeyondTablet – Giving Game Time A Whole New Meaning

What happens when I get invited to get an advance sneak peek at the newest thing that is going to be on everyone’s wish list but I’ll be out of town?  Do I say no and make you and me miss out on the inside scoop?  No way!  I enlist my village.  While JustaBXgirl and I were visiting family in North Carolina JustaBXgrandpa and one of my nephews were working hard testing out the new Beyond Tablet.

This is a sponsored post. We were invited to attend the event as media and I am being compensated for writing this. As always all opinions are honest and in this case are solely those of the JustaBXfamily.  This post contains affiliate links.

I didn’t know much about what they were walking into other than that they had the chance to hang out having lunch along side some of my favorite blogging buddies at The Children’s Museum Of Manhattan (which we love and have a membership to) and that they would get to play with the yet to be released Beyond Tablet.

What is the Beyond Tablet? It is a screen-less tablet that simply put brings board games to life.  You place one of the Beyond games on top of the tablet and it comes alive.  The tablet gives instructions and can even offer feedback.  There’s no opportunity to get bored as you can interchange the game pieces making it feel like a brand new game every time.  It allows up to four players to get in on the fun.  And you will have fun.

Look at their concentration!

The Beyond Tablet comes with five games and is available on Amazon.  The games that it comes with are both educational and enjoyable.  Yes or No would be a favorite in my home.  It’s a trivia game that can be played from age 4 to adult with a varying difficulty that can lead to adults learning too!  Happy Tunes is reminiscent of Simon and requires the players to pay attention and repeat the patterns.  This would be frustrating for JustaBXgirl and me.  We always mess up on the Shopkins version of this on my phone.  All of the games that come with the system have an underlying educational appeal.  That makes me happy.  It is a little expensive at $199.00 so this would be a big ticket item but would also be a fun family gift where you know it would be used.

And of course there are additional game pieces that you can purchase to use with the Beyond Tablet.  My nephew and JustaBXgrandpa really enjoyed The Battle Of The Submarines.  The Battle Of The Submarines has the same premise as Battleship.  And who doesn’t love sinking someone’s battleship?  I’m really considering adding this as the group gift for JustaBXgirl and her cousins for Christmas.  As you know we all love board games and this seems like a good way to up the ante on family game night.  We will see.  Do you think your children would like it?  What would be their favorite game?

    We always do family game night and this looks like fun! Definitely in the Christmas list due to the price point.

    We recently started doing family game night. Our first game was Sorry, but now that we have this, mini can’t stop playing. She was so excited to play with us.

    I love the idea of this and I especially like that they are like the board games that we are used to playing. Sounds like something really fun to add to family game night.

    Wow this is nice. I love board games but no one else in my family does. This would be a nice way to get the younger kids interested in table top games.

      Yes, definitely a way to bridge the old school with the new school!

    Great idea very innovative. This reminds of when I was a kid and we used to play checkers and all of sort of board games.

    Cool! There’s something about a good old fashion game that’s so much fun. I could play one four hours.

    This looks like so much fun and not as much clean up as the old school games used to be. I will have to look into this for our game nights

    Wow that’s a pretty cool looking game. Might be a board game I’d actually like to try.

    This looks like a really fun game for when my son gets older. My husband and I play games but my son is just a bit too young yet.

    What a great idea. It’s nice to find something that doesn’t involve screen time that will appeal to kids.

    What a great alternative to staring at a computer screen all day/night. My four grandchildren would gain great knowledge from this educational toy.

    The Beyond Tablet sounds really cool and would be an awesome addition to game night. We love playing board games and family game night is right up there with movie night. We’ll have to check into this although it might not be in our budget right now. Thanks for sharing!
