Swingset Press Pajama Party Games Review

Swingset Press Pajama Party Games


About Swingset Press from their Facebook page:  Swingset Press has been blazing the tween product pack since 1994 when co-founder Ron Solomon left NBC where he’d written and co-created smash-hit tween sensations like, “Saved By The Bell,” and “California Dreams.” Since its start, Swingset Press, through Solomon and his wife, Iris, has created more than just products. The Colorado-based company has created categories, from photo phonebooks (“My People: Stuff Directory”) to black light diaries (“My Ultra Secret Stuff Journal,”) and most recently, its highly popular and fun line of pajama party games for tween BFFs.


Sleepover games 001

My older daughter, Michaela is almost 10 & is the typical pre-teen.  She loves pajama parties & playing games until all hours of the night.  When I told her she would get to review Ultimate Truth or Dare, Star Awardz, & Acting Out games, she was super excited!  She wanted to play them right away, but didn’t have any friends over.  So, she had to settle for her brother.  Let’s just say, the game didn’t last very long!  Ha-ha!  He was not impressed with these “girly” games.

A few days later, Michaela got to have a couple friends over & they played all three games.  Their favorite was Truth or Dare.  She liked that is was easy to play & has all the questions already printed.  She also liked that it didn’t have anything too “over-the-top”.  She’s pretty conservative & wouldn’t want to do anything really crazy.  There were truths like: “What is your biggest pet peeve?” & “If you had to go on a date with a friend’s brother, who would you pick?”.  A couple of the dares were: “Grab a broom and pretend you’re slow-dancing with your crush.” & “Smear jelly on your lips then wipe it off with your underwear…while still wearing them!”

The second game, Star Awardz, is more of a performance based game.  Players take turns performing various challenges from four categories.  They do things like singing a song like an opera singer, acting like they’re jumping out of an airplane, dancing around like a hillbilly at a square dance, or snorting like a pig.  The first player to receive all four “Star Awardz” wins.

The third game, Acting Out is a crazy fun game where players perform two cards at exactly the same time and have the other players guess what they’re doing before the time runs out.  There are silly things like: “Pretend you’re a runway model while you talk like the bratty kid you babysit” OR “Have a pillow fight while you hum the theme song to your fave TV show.”  Every game is different because each time you pair up two different cards.  There are 100 cards to mix up & have a super silly time.

Depending on personalities, all three games are great for teens and pre-teens to play.  They all require just 2 or more players & are for ages 7 and up.
