This week has been a little busy for us with Spring Break and the kids visiting grandma. However we were still able to fit in a game night. This week we played a great game from Peaceable Kingdom called Feed the Woozle. It was a really fun cooperative game that is designed to get the family up and moving around and working together.
Feed the Woozle is a fun cooperative and educational game. There are different levels of play so you can easily adjust it to make it easier or harder depending on the age of the kiddos playing. The game requires you to work as a team so it’s a great way to get the kiddos working together and communicating. It involves some fun interactive steps that is fun for getting up and moving around. I like games that get the kids up and moving and this is a really fun one. The object of the game is to feed the woozle some silly foods. Each time you successfully feed the woozle with the big spoon you get a yummy card. Once the team collects 12 cards (before you run out of food) then you win the game.
In the box you will find:
1 Woozle Monster Stand up
24 Food Tokens
12 Yummy Tokens
1 Large Die
1 Large Spoon
Who Would Enjoy This Game:
The game is designed for players ages 3-6 and 2-5 players. It’s geared more towards younger children. My daughter is 7 and had a lot of fun playing it though. However our older kiddos had fun but were not as excited about it as my 7 year old. You can adjust the difficulty level. Level 1 just involves using the spoon to transfer the foods to the woozle just walking back and forth. Level 2 introduces the spinner, you will perform the move while you walk across (examples are things like marching, hula dancing, spinning, etc). Level 3 requires you to close your eyes and have your teem mates direct you to the woozle with communication. Our favorite was level 2 and we had a lot of fun doing the moves back and forth. It’s a great game to build cooperation between a group and really fun for families.
Is It Fun:
We really enjoyed it. It has a lot of educational value like working together, cooperation, communication, and coordination. My 7 year old really loved it. It was a little to easy for the older kiddos but if you have younger children it’s a hoot and lots of silly fun when you introduce the spinner.
Game play is very easy. Set up the Woozle about 10 feet away from your playing area on a table. We left the yummy cards on the table with the woozle so we could grab one when we succeeded. At your playing area set down the spoon, die and food cards. Appoint someone (an adult) to be the spin master in charge of the spinner. On your turn roll the die, place the number of food pieces on your spoon you rolled on the die (example if you roll a 2 pick 2 food tokens and put them on the spoon). Now if you are playing level 1 just walk to the woozle and try not to drop any food. If you are playing level 2 have the spin master spin and announce what move you will have to do while walking to the woozle (examples spinning, hula dancing, bunny hops, going crazy, marching). If you are playing level 3 close your eyes and listen for your team mates to tell you where to go. When you get to the woozle feed him the food tokens. If you drop a token on the way there it doesn’t count, just set it aside. If you make it you get 1 yummy card for each food you delivered (so if you feed him 2 foods you get 2 yummy cards). You will take turns doing this until you are able to feed the woozle 12 foods. If you run out of food before you get to 12 just start over and try again.
I don’t have any concerns with this one. It’s a lot of fun.
