Each and every weekend my family and I put some time aside to spend together to either play games, watch movies or carry out some kind of team activity.
Yeti In My Spaghetti
We were recently sent ‘Yeti In My Spaghetti’ from University Games to play, review and to share with my readers. Yeti In My Spaghetti is a hands on, practical game for two players and over, ideally suited towards children aged four years and over.
Included within the Yeti In My Spaghetti game is:
- 1 x Spaghetti Dish
- 30 x Noodles/ Plastic Spaghetti Strands
- 1 x Plastic Yeti
- 1 x Instruction Sheet
The Aim Of The Game
Players must place the noodles/ spaghetti strands in a criss-cross fashion across the dish then place the Yeti on top. Once the game has been setup players must then take it in turns to remove noodles from the dish without disturbing the Yeti, if the Yeti should fall to the bottom of the dish then the player which last removed a noodle/ spaghetti strand successfully becomes the winner.
The children already have a colossal collection of games all of which have been played with, enjoyed and put to great use over the years. There are a few games however that share particular similarities whether it’s the aim of the game or the overall design.
Upon opening and putting together the Yeti In My Spaghetti game we found that were instantly reminded of ‘Ker Plunk’, a game which requires players to remove straws from a beaker without disturbing the marbles which are placed on top. The player which completes the game with the least marbles in their tray wins much like ‘Yeti In My Spaghetti’ where the winner is the person who last pulled a piece of spaghetti from the tray without disturbing the Yeti.
Quick, Easy & Simple Gameplay
This game takes very little time to play which is ideal for younger children given that their attention spans tend to be short. Yeti In My Spaghetti is a really simple game and in all honesty given the size of the items included and the simplicity of the game itself I would actually recommend that this game could be played by children aged two years and over as it really is that easy!
We played several rounds of this game together as a family, the children seemed really excited by the game and seemed to really enjoy taking turns removing noodles from the bowl. Much like Jenga and Ker Plunk, Yeti In My Spaghetti will inevitably result in wreck and ruin building tension and excitement as the game goes on.
