Frenzy Is Great! Review/Giveaway

Hello Agents!

How is everyone?  We are all doing great.  Today was a really nice day and pretty warm, so we worked in the backyard and let the dogs out for a while.  They loved it!  Since it has been getting colder we have been playing games inside as a family each night instead of volleyball in the backyard.  One night (and several times since:) we have played a new game we received from Kevin at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair called ...FRENZY!



Our family plays games almost every night -  we used to stay up until midnight at our Pastor's house playing games with their family.  We have one small bookshelf filled with games, and several shelves on a second bookshelf.  So yes, my family does enjoy having game time together.  :)


First, there are six decks of forty-eight cards each (2-6 players).  Each player takes one deck of cards (Red : Red faced Spider Monkey - Ateles paniscus, Banana Belly : White Bellied Spider Monkey - Ateles belzebuth, Sunshine : Black faced /Peruvian Spider Monkey - Ateles chamek, Cookie : White cheeked Spider Monkey - Ateles marginatus, Peanut : Brown Spider Monkey - Ateles hybridus, and Mitts : the Black handed /Geoffroy's Spider Monkey - Ateles geoffroyi.).


Each player should place five cards with the Spider Monkey face-up in a horizontal row in front of themselves.  Like this...



The object of Frenzy is "Spider Monkeys live in groups called bands, but break into smaller groups called troops during the day to find food including fruit, flowers, nuts, leaves, and sometimes even bugs and tree bark!  Be the first player to build a Spider Monkey troop by getting rid of your cards and yelling FRENZY!!"  


To get rid of your cards you start with a tail...


And add numbers (all players can participate in each pile)...


Until you get to the number ten...  


Then the first person (any player) to slap a "Head" card down on the stack of cards...


Gets that pile (which you set beside you until the end of the game)!  The first person that gets rid of all os his/her cards yells "FRENZY" and is the winner!  That means that you have played all cards including the 4 "Head" cards - you created a troop of Spider Monkeys!



When we pulled out this game, we knew it was one we would enjoy.  Our family loves the fast, beat somebody else to it type of games.  Our whole family really enjoyed Frenzy, and when we played it with some friends of ours they commented on how fun it was!  Okay,  have been offered a discount for all my Agents.  You have a special price of $14.99 (from $19.95) plus s&h!  you just have to call (630) 487-0270 and mention the coupon code : Family Fun.  

One of my Agents is going to receive one Frenzy Game!  Wow - make sure to enter below!
