Word Has it! & Yeti in my Spaghetti Games Review

Word Has it! and Yeti in my Spaghetti Game review on Serenity You

 

We love playing board games in our house and often have family game nights. The latest games we got to try out are both from University Games and they are Yeti in my Spaghetti and Word Has It! Yeti in my Spaghetti is basically a newer version of Kerplunk. Remember that game? I had it as a kid and it was one of my favourites. I used to play it a lot with my sister and when I won, she used to get made and stab me with one of the sharp pointy sticks that came with it. So I am glad to say this version is a lot safer and my kids wont be able to stab each other with he pieces of the spaghetti.

The aim of the game is to take it in turn to pull out a piece of spaghetti without making the yeti fall into the bowl. This is a quick and easy game to play and great for the younger children. And it doesn’t take ages to set up like the Kerplunk. It use to take me at least 15 minutes to guide all the sticks back through the tiny holes of the base.

Word Has It! is for older children and is suitable for kids aged 7+. It’s for 2-4 players and the aim of the game it to make the longest word in the given time to win the card. The player with the most cards wins the game. But there is a twist. For each round the answer has to begin with the letter that is spun. So if the card say’s ‘Something that is heavy’ and letter is L, your answer could be like mine, Lorry.

You have 40 seconds to find your letters to make your word and the player who makes the tallest word, provided that the word answers the statement on the card, win that round. Each player also has 2 special cards which they can play. One is for an extra 40 seconds, and the other is a ‘any letter card’. That means they have to answer the card statement, but their answer can start with any letter they like.

Caitlin who is 7 enjoyed this game, but needed to press the timer to re-start about 3 times each round as it took her a while to find the correct letters she need to make a word. Aaron (6) found this tricky, as he is still learning to spell most words. But he did manage to make some words which I was pretty proud of him for. We liked to play this game in teams with an adult on each side. But also great for helping the keeps learn how to spell.
