So it’s not really accurate to say that like Scrabble, Simon is the lastest Hasbro game to get the electronic treatment because Simon was actually one of the first electronic games on the market back in the 80’s. But this updated version called Simon Flash certainly expands what the original Simon was capable of. Not to mention making it far more portable.
Simon Flash is composed of 4 blocks that light up red, blue, yellow and green, and in addition to letting you play a traditional game of Simon where you repeat an ever expanding sequence of colors, the cubes include other game variants too. Like the classic peg-based game Mastermind, for example, where you work to figure out a secret color combination in a set number of moves. There’s no word on when Simon Flash might be available, but your safe bets are sometime in the Summer or just in time for the Christmas holidays.
