Press Releases


PLANO, TX – September 18, 2018 – Pressman® has been bringing families together through innovative toys and games for generations. Mastermind® and Hydro Strike® charmed families in the 80’s and are back once again for more family fun.

Pressman strongly believes in the power of play, as families who play together, stay together. That’s why two timeless favorites are back with a new look and feel. Parents will reflect on fond memories and be delighted as they have the chance to introduce these classics to their children.

Hydro Strike was a watery blast in the 80’s and is here to make a splash in 2018! In this head-to-head pinball game, players need fast flipping fingers to shoot the ball into their opponent’s goal. When players score, their opponent gets a surprising spray of water to the face. Children will love competing to be the first to spray Mom and Dad in the face. The first family member to score five times wins.  Designed for 2 players, ages 7 and up.

The family will love testing their code-cracking prowess and STEM skills with Mastermind, the challenging game of logic and deduction. Family members will take turns being the Codemaker and Codebreaker. The Codemaker sets a secret code, then the Codebreaker must use their smarts to unlock it. Designed for 2 players, ages 8 and up.

These Pressman favorites are a touch of nostalgia for Mom and Dad, and tons of fun for children. Family game night is the perfect way to spend tech-free time together and learn vital life skills. Mastermind and Hydro Strike are available at all major retailers.
