Quick Take: Kids always get excited about this game when they see it in our game cabinet and they’re happy to set it up but I have yet to see a game get finished. I think they do a lot of good marketing for this game and it has a catchy name. The one big plus for this game is that a toddler can be around and screw it up and it’s not really a big deal to reset and play again or give them little pieces to play with while you play the real game and even if you lose a few of the noodle pieces you can still play this game, no problem.
How to Play: It’s like a variation of Jenga but with twisty plastic spaghetti pieces over a bowl with a Yeti monster balanced on top. You pull out the spaghetti pieces one by one, whoever pulls out the piece that makes the Yeti fall to the bottom of the bowl loses the game.
Variations: Technically you are supposed to only touch one spaghetti piece when making your move and if you touch a piece you are committed to it, like Jenga. However if you’re playing with small children, who cares, they can switch spaghetti pieces or use two hands, the basic motor skills required to be careful in this game are tricky enough for them.
