The Rock-It 3-D‘s claims to turn anything into a speaker left me pretty skeptical…. until I tried it for myself. This little gadget is only about three inches long but don’t let its small size fool you – this product is one of the coolest things I have seen in a long time! Rock-It plugs into your music device on one end and turns your music into sound vibrations. On the other end is a small “pod” that sticks to anything and allows the sound to be not only heard but amplified. The sound doesn’t get distorted and offers good bass and volume. The more Rock-It’s you attach, the louder it gets. As I am writing this review, I am actually listening to Christmas music through an empty UPS box. How cool is that?

While doing so, players have to keep their piece on the board while avoiding their opponents or knocking opponents off the board. The last one still “alive” wins!
