Picked this game up last week at a dutch toy shop that gave away a free lego golden dice with every board game.
Did not have high expectations of this one, because the box art looked kinda silly to me.
I mean collecting eggs, how can you design a game around that?
Back of the box
Inside the box we have the lego dice, two bags with parts, building instructions and the rules of the game.
First bag has 33 white "eggs" (dome tops) and one golden egg and some parts to create the brown and grey chickens.
Second bag has some more interesting parts, even though one would probably not buy Kokoriko as a parts pack.
These round white plates with open stud are only used in lego games:
And, finally, a closer look at the rare pink parts:
Building the dice:
Building four grey chickens:
Building the three brown chickens and the rooster:
Final look of the game:
I do not have the energy to explain the game myself, so I scanned the rules.
Since you can make two "worms" with the included pieces (one with and one without a face), we play the game with the houserule that if you roll the pink face, you can guess which piece is the "worm". If you guess wrong, you have to remove one of your eggs, if you guess right, you get eggs for all of your chickens, grey and brown.
So what do I think of this game?
Well, the box says 6+, but you can play it already with three and four-year-olds, older kids may even find it a little boring.
Children learn to count, what doubling is (rooster) and to assess risks (should I take an egg or steal a chicken).
In short: excellent, affordable little filler game, if you have children in the age range 3-6 years, I recommend picking up this game, otherwise skip this one.
