I Want My Teeth Back, By Exploding Kittens - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:           Board game for kids 

Rating:                      ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

Recommended age:   4 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Kids that enjoy games with a mix of luck and strategy + a SUPER cute theme! 

“I Want My Teeth Back” - what a giggly FUN name! This is another fantastic, loved-by- the-kids game from the popular Kitten Games series from Exploding Kittens , and I seriously can’t wait to tell you more! Thank you VR Distribution, this is pretty awesome! 

Why I love ❤️ this game? 

(1) CUTE Theme About Monster Meef & Teeth-Collecting 

We love the cute story and theme of “helping Meef the monster to get his teeth back” - it is fun, silly, and refreshing! To set up the game, place the spinner and the deck of 57 cards at the centre of table, and throw two teeth tokens on the landing mat. Each player takes turn to draw a card, and decides if they want to play it / or save it for later. Some cards allow us to spin the spinner for a specific number of times, some allow us to place extra teeth on the landing mat, some give us additional spinning chances if we collect matching set of cards. If a spinner stops and points at one of the two blue lucky tooth sections - you get to collect all the teeth from the landing mat (and don’t forget to refill the mat with 2 teeth tokens right after). The first player who collects 12 teeth and brings a BIG grin back to Meef - wins the game! This game is easy to learn, quick to play, and would guarantee a giggling-filled moment! 

(2) A Game With Good Mix Of Luck & Strategy 

I love the good mix of luck and strategy in this game - nothing too complex for young kids, but interesting enough to train up some critical thinking and decision-making skills of our little people. There are 4 different kinds of tooth cards - each card rewards a player with a single spin, but 2 matching cards would give you 3 spins, and 3 matching cards for 5 spins! Our young players need to adopt the best strategy to outsmart each other - should you play a single card for an instant spin, or wait and collect matching cards for more spinning chances? And don’t forget to take advantage of the fluctuating number of teeth tokens on the central board (not all spins are equal!). 

(3) Fantastic Artwork & Components 

The artwork is super CUTE! We love that the teeth tokens have a variety of expressions on them, the monster Meef is adorable, the short story gives us a smile, and the separate instructions for grown-ups and little ones are such a nice touch! Awesome game indeed!
