Perfection Can Be Scary

January 30th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Video

One of the games that the kids got for Christmas was Perfection. Mara? Campbell? I can’t remember now who got it. It has been a little while. Well, when we tried to open it and play it during the holidays, we had a problem. We wound up the timer on the game and it proceeded not to count down. Nothing.

That was strange. So we brought it back to the store and they were out of stock and we had to wait. Well, a few weeks later mom got a replacement, brought it all the way home and sure enough, that one didn’t work with a different problem.

Next time to the store it was time to open up the game and try it out real time at the point of sale. In a way, thankfully, the next one didn’t work either because it proved to the store manager that Steph wasn’t crazy. The 4th game tried worked. And they wound it up again and it worked, and worked again. OK, this is the one to keep. Yes, is it likely to fail again based on experience. Sure, but we really wanted the kids to have it to try while it lasted.

And with good reason. The kids loved it and it was really fun seeing them enjoy it. Of course the best part is to see them react when the timer goes off. Here is some video of them playing it for the first time. We thought you would want to see it too.
