Ultra Dash

This is one of the best gifts I ever gave to my Nanny Kids. I create different obstacle courses indoors and outside for my Nanny Kids. No two games are ever completely the same. Ultra Dash is a test of speed, agility, and reaction. As the kids get older I make the courses more difficult.

Unlike board games, Ultra Dash players aren’t limited to a tabletop. Instead, kids have the freedom to arrange their target course however they want. They can place all five of them in close proximity, or scatter them around the house so there’s room to run. Kids can even play outside once the sun goes down.

Kids can race against themselves, challenge friends, or capitalize on cooperative play options. And with fun sounds and flashing lights that identify whether or not players hit the right target, kids of all ages can get involved.

Place the five different colored plastic targets around the room, house, or backyard. When the clock starts, the tagger will light up a random color, indicating which matching target kids have to hunt down. The tagger features a built-in screen, so kids can tell it how many players are competing, and which game mode (there are three) to play.

In Beat the Clock, youngsters race to hit all five colored targets as fast as they can, in an effort to clock the lowest time. Whoever makes the rounds the quickest, wins. It’s the ideal mode for some friendly competition amongst friends, and it can even be used when young ones just want to challenge themselves and beat their personal best.

Target Tally lets players set their own time limit, and then challenges them to hit as many targets as they can in that time. The default limit is 20 seconds, but kids can increase the time in 10-second increments to enjoy longer games.

Relay Race is a game for one team versus another team. In this game each team has a certain amount of time to hit their targets and complete the course. The tagger has to be handed to the other teammate and the team member has to hit the next target, then they hand the tagger to the next player until the course is complete.
