Description:

The chickens are hanging out on their colorful

wooden perch. But if one of them decides to

leave, the whole perch will teeter. Collect as

many chickens, hay bales and wagon wheels

before the rocking perch topples.

How many pieces can you save? The chickens,

hay bales and wagon wheels have different

weights meaning different point values. The player

with the highest score wins the game. Selecting a heavier

piece receives more points but entails more risk of making

the perch topple. If you cause the perch to topple, 5 points

will be deducted from your total.

An irresistible game of balance, laughs and fun where the

roost goes CHICKYBOOM

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and silly! I tried Chickyboom at a games cafe and loved it. I plan to get it for my nephew, but for now I'm enjoying it. It's a quick game, and for younger players it's nice that you don't have to take a piece if you find it'll topple the see saw. It's a great way to learn some scientific principles about balance and distance from the fulcrum, plus strategy like trying to arrange it so your opponent has to take a piece that will knock everything over. The game pieces can be arranged in many different ways, but for young children, some help will be needed to get it to balance. I think with some practice and helpful hints, most kids 7 or 8 will be able to set up the board. Figuring it out is good for developing fine motor skills, patience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A favourite in our house!! My 5 year old son received this game as a gift for his birthday from friends who have this game and love it. We love it as well and plan on giving it as a Christmas gift. The concept is simple enough, take an item off the board without the board toppling. The game does require a parent or older child to set it up (each time it topples) so if you are looking for a game that does not require parental involvement this game is not for you. I would recommend this game to anybody.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I give it a zero The little pieces that are to balance on the board do not stay on at all. As soon as you take one off they all fall off. My 6 to 9 year olds cannot even get the pieces on without adult help. Very frustrating not worth the money at all!!!
