How to Play Yeti in My Spaghetti
The game is set up by placing the bowl on a flat surface and randomly organising the spaghetti in a criss-cross fashion across the bowl. The Yeti is then placed on top – this is best done in the center but you can place him where you like. This is a game for two or more players and the oldest goes first.
The noodles are all different in the way they bend and curve and each player has to take away a piece of the spaghetti using just one hand (you can swap hands but only hold the spaghetti one hand at a time). The aim is not to let the Yeti fall into the bowl – and if it does then the player who was last at being successful to remove their spaghetti is declared the winner! It is okay if the Yeti is dangling – you only lose when it completely falls into the bowl (so you may even skillfully get down to the last piece of spaghetti!). You cannot test the noodles out – so the first one you touch is the one that you have to pull out. There are no instructions about what happens to excess noodles that fall out but we just assumed that they were just bonus ones that came away.
Conclusion of Yeti in My Spaghetti
I loved that Yeti in My Spaghetti is such a straightforward game: With a minimal amount of (good quality) pieces it is easy to set up, put away and store (although it is a little annoying that the Yeti comes attached through the box so when it is removed there is a hole in the packaging which the spaghetti can fall out of). The rules are simple and straight-forward making it a game for even those who have difficulty understanding. Great for turn-taking, fine-motor skills and problem solving from a young age. It is great fun to play and I would recommend it.
