Crazy Yoomi Duo iPad game is part app part real world board game

Dec 7, 2010

Toys R Us has a strange game that is for the iPad with equal parts of software app and real world board game. The game is called Yoomi Duo and has a round chip holder that puts chips into the right bin based on answered given in the game. The point of the game is to guess what the other player would do.

Questions are things like would the other player stay up or sleep, fly to the moon or go to the bottom of the ocean. The players apparently take turns and the player with the most tokens is the winner. The game is travel friendly and can be played on the road.

It's not cleaner at a how exactly the chip dispenser knows what is the correct answer, or why you need a real world dispenser at all. The game can be pre-ordered right now for $39.99 with an estimated ship date of December 9. I would not want that chip thing sitting on the screen of my iPad with my kids anywhere nearby.
