Test your pulse by building the best nest in Go Cuckoo!
All the nests are occupied, and the cuckoo Kuki doesn't know where to leave her eggs... Can you help her create a safe home for her chicks? In Go Cuckoo! players must build a nest out of sticks and keep the precious eggs from falling out.
Designed by the duo formed by Josep Maria Allué and Viktor Bautista, Go Cuckoo! won the prestigious French As d'Or award for best children's game in 2017, but now returns to stores with an updated and renewed design by illustrator Monsuros. A game of Go Cuckoo! can last about 15 minutes in games in which 2 to 5 people canparticipate, from 8 years old.
In Go Cuckoo! you must keep your composure, because it is vital in this game of skill! The objective is to build a nest on a can with wooden sticks, similar to those in the popular Mikado game, which represent the branches of the nest. On each turn, players must remove the sticks and carefully cross them to support the eggs. You must be careful not to knock over other sticks or previously placed eggs. The first player who, after running out of eggs, manages to place the cuckoo Kuki in her new nest will win.
Go Cuckoo! is an ideal game to havea good time with the little ones at home. Players will test their skill, pulse, and patience to create the perfect nest. For adults, the game can become a challenge when it comes to creating more or less stable structures, and those who boast of having a surgeon's pulse may encounter the small factor of chance that the precondition of drawing a stick with both ends of the same color. A versatile andvery attractive game that can be taken anywhere thanks to its format.
One of the most special elements of Go Cuckoo! is the can itself where the game components are kept. In addition to being an attractive aesthetic element, this same can is the base that will be used during the game to form the Kuki cuckoo's nest. The players will placethe wooden sticks on it to try to place the eggs later.
Another essential componentare the wooden sticks, which have a formatlike that of the traditional mikado, the classic game of adding sticks without the restfalling down. As was the case in that game, the sticks have both ends painted and depending on the color, the players' turn willproceed one way or another. Finally, the eggs and the wooden figure of the Kuki cuckoo stand out, solid pieces of good wood that the players must arrange in the nest of sticks.
During preparation, each player receives the same number of eggs (if there are any leftovers, they are returned to the box). Next, all the sticks are placed inside the bottom part of the can, which also serves to save the game.
The wooden pieces are painteddifferent colors on both ends. At the beginning of the game, only one end will stick out, since the other will be at the bottom of the can, away from our sight. On each turn, players must take one of theswabs and check if the color of the top part matches the color of the bottom part. If the colors of the ends match, the player will place the stick crosswise and then try to place one of his eggs. If the colors of the stick do not match, you will have three attempts before losing your turn, but you must always place the drawn sticks. If at any time any sticks fall from the nest structure,they must replacethem, and the shift will endimmediately. If one or more eggs are dropped, the responsible player must add one to their reserve. When a player manages to place his last egg, they must place the figure of the cuckooKuki... And they will win!
