How can you not love a game that has rubber chickens and a silly name! But there is more to this game than wacky names and squishy poultry – Flickin’ Chicken is a high energy game of strategy!
The Tournament Edition of the game includes 6 uniquely colored rubber chickens, a game disc (like a frisbee), a score pad and a storage bag.
The game is played by throwing the disc as far as you can. Next, you take turns flicking your chickens. There are nine rounds and it plays sort of like a golf game. You have to throw your chicken as close to the disc as possible – every time you miss, you get a point – just like golf. The object of the game is to be the one with the least points by the end of the ninth round! And to keep things interesting, the disc has two sides with a center based bonus of sorts (or not bonus). Depending on the side it lands on after tossing, you will either add or subtract an additional point if you hit the center area of the disc upon flicking your chicken to its final resting place of the round.
Flickin’ Chicken is great because of it’s versatility. It’s a game for kids and adults, indoors and outdoors and because of the Tournament Edition’s storage bag, you can take it with you to the beach, the park or even just your backyard!
