Crazy Claw is a scaled down arcade grabber style game, which will give players an easier chance of winning the game, rather than the larger real-life version.
Crazy Claw comes from the amazing Drumond Park crew and this one is a big hit in our house. When we were sent this game, we were very excited as we always wanted to play these in the arcades, but knew our chances of getting anything would be nearly nil! Crazy Claw combines a grabber element with the fun of a ‘board’ game.
The rules and set up are quite simple. Inside the box there is a clear plastic square tube, which needs to be pressed into shape to become the case of the box. There are sets of 4 different coloured balls with tokens inside which you need to grab with the hand claw and then match the tokens with the pictures on your card.
Sound easy? Well, you also have to be quick and have a steady hand as the other players are out to make it as hard for you as possible by frantically pressing the paddles on the game which make the balls you are aiming for fly off in another direction!
The first to collect all their correct tokens from the inside the balls and match them to their card wins the game. It’s a simple, fast and furious game.
We have played this a number of times and the laughter and noise which we make is hilarious. It’s a real, ‘wake the street-up’ kind of game. Perfect for family parties (Halloween and Christmas is coming up!).
We have slightly modified the game play by adding little sweets in each empty bouncing ball (once a token is removed from the balls, the empty ball is put back in to play so others could potentially pick an empty ball). So, if someone does pick an empty ball, at least they have a little surprise treat. The kids love this version…and I don’t mind it either! 🙂
The game is for 2-4 players and is aimed at 5+ age. The simple paddle pressing twist on this game makes it a fun and noisy game. The children get really excited and it feels like you are playing the game all the time, rather than waiting for your turn as you are constantly doing something. The RRP is £22.99 and is available from all good toy retailers.
We really enjoy this game. Lots of laughs, lots of noise and giggles. Great fun for all the family of all ages.
