Crazy Claw Review & Giveaway

We have received a new game from Drumond Park, brand new Crazy Claw….

crazy-claw-3d-hr


The action-packed game of boiling balls and grabbing claws. Everyone knows the excitement of the arcade game: now find the right Toy Tokens in the bubbling balls and you win! While one player is the clawmaster, everyone else batters the paddles to bounce the balls around until the claw finally catches one. The balls contain Toy Tokens, and to win the game you must collect the 3 toys shown on your collection card.

(rrp £22.99, age 5+)

Game Play

The initial set up of this game will take you around ten minutes as you’ll need to pop it together and put all of the stickers on. I’d recommend not mentioning to the kids that you’re doing it and sneaking off elsewhere to get it all ready – so much easier! You also need to put little tokens in each of the balls, so that’ll take a few minutes. After this first time set up, it’s just a case of putting the cube up and placing the balls inside, so it is much faster then.

crazy-claw-2

There is a plastic cube filled with plastic balls. Inside each ball is a token. Each player has a collection card as you can see in the photos and the idea is to grab the balls that contain the corresponding tokens to fill your collection card up. There are only three to get, though that is just the right amount of playing time as finding three can be tricky amongst all of those balls!

crazy-claw-1

Each player takes a turn to control the claw and grab a ball. Whilst they’re trying to do that, the other players hit the paddles at the base to make the balls jump around. Once a ball has been selected, it’s opened up to reveal the token inside. If it matches one of the pictures on that player’s collection card, they keep it and play continues. If not, it is returned to the cube.

The winner is the player to fill their collection card first.

The Verdict

This is definitely a hit in our house. It’s quite unlike any other game we’ve played, which appeals. The kids enjoy both hitting the paddles to put other players off and operating the claw. The amount of times that they ask to play this tells me how much they love it and all grandparents have had to get involved when they’ve visited, too.

It’s simple to understand and moves quickly, and though the recommended age is 5 years and up, my just turned 4 year old can easily play it. The only thing that can be a bit tricky is opening the balls themselves, though the more we’ve played this the easier they have become so we’re either getting better at it or the balls are getting a bit looser!

It’s a fun and pacy game that’s easy for all to play.
