I love it when you stumble on
such an innovative game idea; Crazy Claw (RRP £22.99) makes me feel nostalgic
of all the seaside trips as a child playing in the amusement arcades. This game will go down a treat at Christmas,
there is nothing worse than getting the wrong presents but this game cannot
help but delight! My youngest can turn
his nose up at certain board games but this one got his seal of approval, which
says a lot. I think because it’s quite
a novel format, no board to manoeuvre round, he is quite practical and hands on
so this game suits him.
Children will love the challenge
of trying to capture the balls. It’s no
easy feat as it’s difficult not to get distracted by everyone frantically
pushing on the paddles making the balls leap around. It’s good everyone has something to do now so no one gets fed up
waiting his or her turn. It can just
get a little CRAZY…
Once you capture a ball you get
the excitement of seeing if it contains a toy token that you need, if it does
you can place said token on your collection card and return the empty ball back
into game play. Then it becomes
progressively trickier as more empty balls mean it’s harder to find toy tokens!
It’s quite a simple game to get
the concept of but very addictive. It’s
aimed at children 5+ and my 7 and 9 year old certainly found it lots of
fun. It’s a good idea as a Christmas
present because you can play it on Christmas day without having to first learn
lots of rules, which can be quite frustrating for this age range. You can instead dive in and get
grabbing. The winner is the first to
collect the three toy tokens they need to complete their collection card and achieve
the glory of being the ultimate Clawmaster!
