Foxy Pants is a fast and fun new table top game from Drumond Park, challenging you to see if you’re fast enough to save your chickens from the hungry fox! We’ve been playing this game at home with the boys, and Drumond Park are giving away one game to a lucky In The Playroom reader too – Enter at the end of this post.
Foxy Pants is a fun game for all the family, suitable for children aged 4 years old and up. While playing, children can build up their fine motor skills and dexterity as well as improving their reaction times, but most importantly have lots of fun and laughs!
This hilarious game is simple to set up – you just lift Foxy’s arms up, turn him upside down and pull the string which will release his trousers. Pull them up around his waist and push his arms back down – then place him in the middle of the playing area, put the 21 Chickens together next to him and give each player a Chicken Coop. There are also a couple of stickers to apply when first getting Foxy out of the box, but no assembly needed.
The game concept is very easy to grasp, so great for younger players. The player who gives the best chicken impression goes first … and play continues clockwise. At the roll of the die, each player puts as many chickens in Foxy’s pockets as is indicated by the number rolled (1 or 2). At the end of each turn, the player must press Foxy’s head once (until you hear a clicking sound) and if nothing happens, play passes to the next child.
But watch out! Foxy is a sneaky, greedy kind of guy, and when his pants get full, they might just fall down! When they do – and believe us it all happens in an instant – all players must quickly grab as many chickens as they can, one by one and with one hand only, and place them safely in their chicken coop.
Each coop has 5 spaces – the first player to fill all the spaces in their chicken coop is the winner and that thieving Foxy is beaten once and for all! If two players fill their coops at the same time then both are winners.
We played with our younger boys, who are 7 and 8 years old and both of them enjoyed the game, especially the fast pace of it. It’s a fairly quick game, so ideal to fit in when short of time – or play over and over again for a longer session! Each game can be played with 2-4 players.
Foxy Pants is available for an RRP of £22.99 and is available from toy shops and online, including Amazon. Visit DrumondPark.com for more information on stockists.
