Chicken Chicken Game
This “Egg-cellent memory game” is simple; once you’ve seen five egg cards overturned, be the first to slap the deck and get a point. However, other cards in play may mess up your count! Hens sit on eggs and those eggs are out of play, but if a fox comes along, the hen runs away and the egg is back in play. Will you be able to keep track of the eggs with all the hens and foxes running around? Slap the deck too soon and the yolk’s on you! Extra bonus cards allow for other play variations and add even more fun and confusion. First player to get 3 points wins. 2-8 players, with a playing time of approximately 20 minutes. ~ Megan
Count your chickens before they hatch! Reveal cards one at a time, keeping a mental tally of the eggs. Be the first to slap the pile when you think the total equals five. But watch out! Chickens, foxes, dogs, and others get mixed in to fowl up your count. The more characters you add, the more eggciting the game! Win three rounds and you rule the roost!
Our family has long enjoyed playing co-operative games from Family Pastimes. We play competitive ones, too, but enjoy fostering team spirit as we all work toward achieving a goal. If you haven't tried this alternative to playing together, here's an assortment of some of our favorites from this company.
