Syd is 6 soon, and has recently developed a love of board games. When University Games got in touch and asked us to review Yeti in my spaghetti, I knew she’d be thrilled. The game has an RRP of £14.99 and is suitable for children aged 4 and over. It can be played by 2 or more players.

Yeti in my spaghetti - box

Inside the Yeti in my spaghetti box, you get a large red bowl, lots of strings of plastic spaghetti and a plastic “Yeti” figurine. To set the game up, you lay the spaghetti on the top of the bowl, then pop the Yeti on top (like this)…

How To Play

Starting from the oldest player, you take it in turns to remove one piece of spaghetti each. The player who causes Yeti to fall into the bowl is the loser. You can only use one hand at a time, and once you touch a piece, you can’t change your mind and go for a different one. As the game progresses, it gets harder and harder.

The game is very fast paced, and brilliant for filling 5 minutes. If there are a lot of players, you could always do a “knock out” style competition too. Syd and I had great fun playing this game, and I am pleased to announce that I am the champion! Poor Yeti got dumped into the bottom of the bowl a lot when we were snowed in last week…

Thoughts

All told, the game is great fun and I’d recommend it. I love that it doesn’t need batteries and can be played from start to finish in just a few minutes. This game is perfect if you have a little time to kill before bath time. Finally, you can buy here.
