Wonky is ready to take its place in your Family Game Night rotation. Testers described it as being a lot like Jenga, but with a unique twist. The game is all about stacking Wonky cubes, wonky because they are “crazy-shaped” with 3 flat and 3 curved sides so the tower you are building quickly becomes wobbly. If the cubes fall, the last stacker needs to draw three additional cards. The first player to rid themselves of their cards, or the person who can stack all nine cubes, is the winner. The game is faster paced than Jenga thanks to the three-second rule (just 3 seconds to make your move), so stacks fall much more frequently. Testers explained that as they got more comfortable with the game and the stacking these oddly shaped cubes, they could turn their focus more to strategies like blocking other players. It’s always good to see games that have room for growth (think Free Parking). The game pieces are all good quality and the packaging is cute with a “wonky” shaped box. Huge props to the game developers for including the little bag to keep all the pieces together for easy storage and the ability to take Wonky with you to play at larger gatherings.
