The Fuzzies as a game is dead simple. You start the game by drawing a card with a color on it. Then, using either your fingers or some tweezers, players take that color Fuzzies from the stack of 100. Then, you try to put that Fuzzie on top of the stack. If you’ve played Jenga, this should sound very familiar. In fact, the doesn’t really have any differences from a rules perspective.
However, the components really change the game. Instead of wooden blocks, you’re using fuzzy little balls that stick together. As you build, the shape of the tower changes. This addition of randomness really ups the excitement factor from your standard Jenga game.
Look, at this point, I will follow Hague and the team where ever they go. And for this go-around, they’ve brought in Wolfgang Warsch, the creator behind The Mind and The Quacks of Quedlinburg (a Kennerspeil winner). That kind of brain-power behind something so ingeniously simple has me very excited to get my grubby paws on The Fuzzies.
The Fuzzies is on Kickstarter for 30 more days at the time of this writing. During the campaign, you can also pick up most of Hague’s back catalog alongside your purchase of The Fuzzies. If you haven’t checked them out yet, it’s worth doing some.
