EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Steal the treats without waking up Granny in the Greedy Granny game from Goliath Games. Granny loves her sweets, but she's not so great at sharing. As she snoozes, 2 to 4 players take turns spinning the treat wheel to see if they should take or give back a treat. But be careful because one wrong move will wake Granny up. To play, spin the spinner, see where the arrow lands, and do what that spot indicates - take a treat from the tray, put one back, take one from another player, or miss a turn. Players will also have to press the purple button next to Granny the number of times specified on the space in hopes that she does not wake up. If Granny wakes up, the player whose turn it is has to return all their treats to the tray. The first player to collect one of each of the four kinds of treats wins the game. 

Is It Fun?

This is a suspenseful, silly game that's easy to play with plastic treat play pieces that offer a fun touch. Even though you know Granny may wake up, it's still surprising, and funny when she does. There are many games on the market that share this type of suspenseful game play, and some offer a a more exciting ending. That said, this does not require whipped cream or water to play so clean up is easier. No batteries are required, and set up is simple as well. 

Who It’s For

Greedy Granny is for 2 to 4 players ages 4 years old and up. It's a game that the whole family can play together.

What To Be Aware Of

No batteries are required. Set up, and game play are easy to do. When Granny wakes up, her teeth are supposed to fly out of her mouth but that did not happen when we played. She still sits up abruptly, which sends the treats flying.
