Drumond Park’s brand new table-top game Crazy Claw (rrp £22.99, age 5+) brings the never-forgotten thrills of the gaming arcade to youngsters aged 5 and up! From the start, everyone gets involved by pounding on the paddles to get the coloured balls bouncing and bubbling about within the box – while the first player, the Clawmaster, does his or her best to capture a ball with the grabber.
This is a super fun game, I think probably Harry’s favourite one so far. We were worried that he wouldn’t really get it because it’s for ages 5+ and he has only just turned 4 but actually it’s really simple once you start and it didn’t take him long to get into it and understand what he needed to do.
I will say it is a bit of a pain to actually put together, it didn’t help having a very impatient 4 year old watching you. Actually I think it’s difficult to put together but the teen does it really quickly, which he likes to show off! But once it’s put together it can be kept that way.
The teens didn’t find this one as exciting as the others but they have both played it with him (and really got into the game each time and wanting to win) I have enjoyed this one.
Can the Clawmaster keep his or her cool – and capture a ball? If you’re lucky enough to open a ball and discover a Toy Token inside which matches one of the pictures on your Collection Card, you place the token on the card and the empty ball is returned to the box. Then it’s the next person’s turn to be the Clawmaster, and if they grab an empty ball, bad luck – back it goes into the box.
Similarly, if someone picks up a ball containing a token which doesn’t match any of the images on their card – back it goes! But eagle-eyed players who do have that picture on their card then have to remember the colour of the ball and keep an eye on it as it bounces round the box – so they can pounce on it when it’s their turn!
