I received an email from Clever Girls & Ubisoft a while ago announcing they were looking for UbiChamps {like me!} to try out their new ABBA You Can Dance game for Wii. They recommended the reviewer having a 70s theme party to celebrate at the beginning of December. Since I knew my 30th birthday would coincide with this idea, I jumped at the chance to try the game. Of course at the time, I didn’t know I was pregnant times three & would be pretty exhausted by mid-December.

But when the disco ball & game arrived, I got excited! I planned for a low-key dinner out with friends on my birthday then invited them back here for a Wii ABBA You Can Dance party. My sweet hubby set it all up the night before & later admitted he couldn’t help but try out the game for himself {& set a few high scores}.

I was planning to just sit out & watch {& take photo evidence} of my friends jamming to ABBA’s greatest hits, but I couldn’t resist.

My friends can dance!

The 18 years of dance classes in me couldn’t miss shaking it a little to Dancing Queen {the prom version} as well as a duet with Sarah.

Cheryl & Sarah breaking it down & then the babies & I took a spin.

We took a break for water & birthday cake before playing another couple of rounds.

My house might be messy & tree half decorated, but the disco ball & game made the party!

I was pleasantly surprised how well the game picked up on our moves while just holding the controller in our right hands. And I got so excited when I saw “PERFECT” or “GOLD MOVE” show up on the TV!

After telling my mom about the game, I’m planning to carry it with me up to their house for Christmas. I really can’t wait to see my family shaking it to ABBA too {we might have to organize a four then four challenge to see who gets the highest points}.

If you have a Wii {or maybe hoping Santa brings you one for Christmas}, keep this game in mind. The 26 ABBA hits vary in speed & you can have a great time no matter what dance level or skills you may have. I haven’t tried out the Karaoke setting yet but I know that would be hilarious! I was very blessed to have Ubisoft mail me ABBA You Can Dance for Wii, but you can purchase it online or at your local ToysRUs {a store I’ll soon be very familiar with I suspect!} or on Amazon too.
