Chickyboom is a great introductory game for children. The pieces are made from wood and are brightly coloured and beautifully made. The object of the game is to remove as many of the points from the balancing bar as possible, without knocking it all down. You can build the balancing bar however you like, which can make it more or less complicated.
In Chickyboom, the chickens are hanging out on their colourful wooden perch — but if one of them decides to leave, the whole perch will teeter. Collect as many chickens, hay bales and wagon wheels before the rocking perch topples. How many pieces can you save? The chickens, hay bales and wagon wheels have different weights, meaning different point values. The player with the highest score wins the game. Selecting a heavier piece receives more points but entails more risk of making the perch topple. If you cause the perch to topple, five points are deducted from your total.
