If you’re looking for a fun preschool board game look no further than Yeti in my Spaghetti, a hilarious fine motor-focused game that will get your child excited to save the yeti from falling into a bowl of spaghetti noodles! Plus it’s also a great food board game the whole family can participate in playing for a quick win and round of fun.
What is the age group for Yeti In My Spaghetti?
The game is recommended to be played by 2 or more players of the ages of four and older. Although the box or instructions don’t tell you this, Yeti in my Spaghetti takes about 10-15 minutes to play, including the setup and is manufactured by PlayMonster.
What is inside the game?
When opening the box to this game, you will be greeted by three different types of pieces. First, you will see a big red bowl with a white yeti inside. Then, you will notice the 30 yellow thick fake spaghetti noodles
How do you play Yeti In My Spaghetti?
Once you’ve set up this game, each player will sit around the bowl and will pick someone to go first. That person will take one piece of spaghetti out the bowl by sliding, slipping, pushing, or lifting it out, but they have to try and be as careful as possible so that they don’t disturb Yeti or let him all into the bowl.
If the person who just went successfully removed a noodle, the next person will do the same thing, again making sure not to let Yeti fall, and so on. If Yeti does fall either during or immediately after your turn (he has to fall completely, hanging by a noodle or shifting is okay!), you lose and the game is over.
The objective of the game is to remove noodles without being the one to let Yeti fall into the bowl!
What are the game rules?
When playing, there are some rules everyone has to follow. If you touch a noodle, whether or not you intended to, you have to take it. Also, you may use either hand to remove your noodle, but must only use one hand at a time. The other rules are that you can only take one noodle per turn, cannot touch Yeti, and cannot shake or move the bowl.
Who is this preschool game perfect to play with?
Although Yeti In My Spaghetti says it should only be played by children over 4, I think it is fine to be played by three-year-olds and maybe even some two-year-olds because there are no small parts that could be choking hazards. It is a very simple game, so I think it would be a great game for preschoolers to have some fun. Of course all game play should be supervised by an adult.
Are there any learning or benefits to Yeti In My Spaghetti
Yeti in my Spaghetti could be beneficial for young kids because it can help with patience (having to wait their turn), gross motor skills (having to pick up only one noodle), and being careful (making sure they are careful when taking noodles so that Yeti doesn’t fall into the bowl).
Here’s what we loved about this game
What we liked about this game is that it’s really simple and easy to learn, doesn’t take too much time to play, and it can be played by a family with such a wide variety of ages since even most toddlers can play.
The game could be improved by with these additions
What we would improve about Yeti in my Spaghetti is that although the simplicity of the game is great for preschoolers, it can get a bit boring sometimes so it would be great if they had added some more components/rules that you could add to make it a little more complicated. Also, the noodles don’t sit well on the bowl, so I would improve how they are shaped and fit on the bowl.
Before you can start playing, you have to set up the game first! In the case of Yeti in my Spaghetti, that is very quick and easy. All you have to do is take all 30 of your noodles and spread them out across the whole top of the red bowl. Then, you just place Yeti on top, in the middle, and are ready to play!
