Firstly, I apologise for not posting yesterday. It has been a crazy half term, the kids have been home and I just couldn’t get time to myself to write. Bad timing, Hazel… bad timing! Any way, who fancies a game of Cobra Paw?
Today’s review is Cobra Paw. A hilarious but simple game for the family. You’ve got be super quick, with epic reactions to win this game. Could you become the next Cobra Paw master?! Created by the awesome team from Bananagrams (another epic game, read my review here) this is another addictive game, perfect for whipping out at parties or when confined to your caravan during a wet summer British holiday.
How to play Cobra Paw
The game is so simple to learn how to play. It takes seconds to set up and learn.. literally. The aim of the game is to grab the most correct tiles, beating you opponent(s). To set the game up lay all 21 tiles (known as Clawfuku Stones) face up, showing their unique patterns. Scroll down for a video!
The player with the smallest paw goes first. Roll the 2 dice to find out which tile you must grab.
Using ninja-like reflexes all players must find the one-and-only correct tile. If you do so before your opponent, lay it infront of you… still visible to your opponents. There is only 1 tile that shall match the pattern of the 2 dice rolled, so be quick… you can’t both win!
Whoever grabbed the correct tile, rolls again. What’s that? No matching tile? Someone must already have it! QUICKLY steal it from that person, before they notice!
And that’s it. Play until one person has won 6 Clawfuku Stones. Simples.
The rules are easy. You must only use 1
hand paw to grab a stone and you cannot try to cover or hide your collected stones from other players.
There are 3 other variations of the game – No Touchy, Ghosts Of The Fallen and Two Ninja Stand off. All are really easy too play, and equally as much fun.
Game contains: 21 Clawfuku Stones, 2 Catnippon dice, Instruction booklet
I really liked that the box is small enough to pack in a suitcase for holiday fun. The illustrations are flippin’ adorable featuring a Cobra Paw Ninja-Cat. Very funny! My (nearly) 6 year old really enjoyed this game and totally got the aim of the game. I was very surprised at her ninja-like reflexes too! My 4 year old did struggle though, and got frustrated as she didn’t quite have the ninja reflexes to win.
