If you’re looking for quirky games, this one is the best. This card game for ages ten and up involves harvesting vegetables to build your own deck of cards with new powers while ridding your hand of artichokes. You win when you draw a new hand that has zero artichokes in it. Comes with forty artichoke cards and thirty-six vegetable cards. Each player begins with ten cards and draws five more. They compost unwanted cards. A ton of veggie fun.
There is no taking turns in this energetic game of Cat and Mouth. Once the board is set up with the cat’s head and mouth in the middle and the game begins it is every man for himself as he tries to fling balls of one color to the opponent’s side. The magnetic cat’s paw on either side throw the balls through the cat’s mouth until all balls of one color are on the opposite side. Crazy fun.
