In this speedy bluffing card game, you and your fellow players are crafty crooks making a break for it after a huge heist! Try to walk away with the greatest stash of loot, but keep an eye on the growing police presence – if a raid is triggered, the player with the most loot is busted and loses everything they’re holding! Then the game continues, with more loot and raids to come!

Finesse, strategy, and speed all come into play in Bounce Off, a fast-paced family game from Mattel.

Each round lasts just a minute or two, which makes Bounce Off a great party game or a fun addition to your next family game night. Once you play just one round, this will climb to the top of your list of fun games!
