This week for family game night we played a super fun game from Goliath Games called Catch the Fox. We have been seeing this game on commercials for awhile now so we were super excited that Goliath sent it to us to try out for Family Game Night. It was a lot of fun and action-packed. We also got some free item coupons from Ben & Jerry’s so we tried out some of their awesome ice cream and their new pint slices which were amazing!!
Catch the Fox by Goliath Games is a fun and fast-paced game that will keep you on your toes. Fill the Fox’s pant pockets up with chickens. Be careful though because eventually, he will lose his pants and the chickens will go flying everywhere. Your task is to catch the chickens and put them back in the chicken coop as quickly as you can. Be the quickest to save the chickens and win the game! It’s a super fun game that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
In the box you will find:
1 Fox (with pants attached underneath)
4 Chicken Coop game pieces
Instructions & Stickers
Who Would Enjoy This Game:
Catch the Fox is suitable for ages 4 and up and designed for 2-4 players. Even young children can play this one, it’s really easy gameplay and will be enjoyed for all ages. Just be careful with younger players with the chickens, they are small. Even though it’s easy gameplay it’s still a lot of fun and we all really enjoyed playing it cause you never know when the Fox is going to lose his pants so that element of surprise really provided a lot of laughs and fun. So it’s great for a family game night because everyone will enjoy it even if you have a big age difference in players.
Is It Fun:
We had a blast with it. The chickens go flying everywhere when the Fox loses his pants so there is a huge scramble to grab them all which led to a lot of laughs and fun. In fact, at one point the children were on the floor wrestling over a chicken which had us all laughing hysterically. Plus, it’s really funny when the Fox’s pants come flying off leading us all to laugh every single time.
This game is pretty easy to play. The first time you play you will need to take some time to set everything up. There are stickers you will need to attach to the fox and the die. Also, the chickens come in two pieces so you will need to put them all together. Once you get that all setup put the Fox in the middle of the table and give each player a chicken coop game piece to set in front of them. Place all the chickens in a pile to the side of where you are playing and put the die where everyone can easily reach it. To start lift up on the Fox’s arms, flip him over and pull out on the black tab until it clicks. Fold his pants up and put them up around his waist.
On your turn, you will roll the die. You will either roll a 1 or a 2. This is the number of chickens you will put in the Fox’s pockets. You can put the chickens in either of the pockets. At the end of your turn push down on the Fox’s head until you hear a click. Pass the die to the next person and continue to take turns until the Fox loses his pants. When the Fox loses his pants all the players will use one hand to pick up chickens one at a time and add them to their coop. Once a player has filled up their coop they are the winner. If no one fills their coop then you will play another round until someone has filled up their coop completely.
The only concern is for younger players. The chickens are small so supervise younger children to make sure they do not put them in their mouths because not only are they small but they are in two pieces so if they do put them in their mouth the smaller piece could easily pop out. My children are both old enough to know better but if you have young children be aware of that. The age restriction is 4 or older though and I’m sure for that reason.
Where Can You Find It:
Available at Target & Amazon!
What is Ben & Jerry’s:
I am pretty sure everyone know what Ben & Jerry’s ice cream is, if you don’t you are really missing out! Ben & Jerry’s is our favorite ice cream in our home. They have some super fun flavors and you never really know what the new ones are going to taste like sometimes but it’s always good no matter how funny the combination sounds. My favorite has always been half baked but we all have our favorites.
Ben & Jerry’s recently introduced the new pint slices which we were super excited to try out. Basically what they have done is taken some of their best flavors and sliced the pints in half and then dipped the slices in chocolate. They are amazingly good! Same classic ice cream but now dipped in chocolate. Everything is better dipped in chocolate.
Where Can You Find Them:
Available at most major retailers in the frozen department.
