Sometimes you want to start a party of with a bang, and there are only so many ways to get party attendees excited about standing around and talking. Which is why playing games of speed is a great conversation starter. It’s name is Lightning Reaction, and it is both a game of suspense, and the element of surprise.
There are four controllers, a button is pressed and a red light flashes with creepy music playing. As soon as the light at the base illuminates green, you must be the first player to hit the button on the controller, or you will be punished with an electric jolt. Needless to say, this is a hilarious game, that involves a lot of people screaming and tossing their controllers. But! It is a great way to get things going at a party, and only need 3 AAA batteries to function. You can adjust the shock with a dial if you don’t want the end of the game to be too shocking for you. A $30 price tag means you can take this home without breaking the bank.
