Can you remember where the yetis are hiding? That's the object of the hide-and-peek memory game Yeti Forgetti, a follow-up in PlayMonster's Yeti line of games that started with Yeti in My Spaghetti.
To start playing, shuffle up the cards and place them face down. Set the three yetis and the snow crab in the middle of the playing area, and place an igloo over each one. Then take turns moving them around to mix them up.
Now you're ready to get the game going. Take turns drawing a card and doing what the card says. There are four different cards. A Swap Igloos card means you must swap two of the igloos without lifting them up. If you draw a Peek card, you get to peek into any one igloo through the hole in its top. A Reveal card means that you can lift up one igloo so that everyone can see what is underneath. And if you draw a Yeti card, you have to remember where that yeti is hiding. So if the card shows a yellow yeti, you must lift up the igloo with the yellow yeti underneath. If you get it right, you win that card. If not, your turn is over. But if you reveal the snow crab when lifting up an igloo after drawing a Reveal or a Yeti card, you must discard one of the cards you've earned.
The first player to collect three cards wins the game. (The instructions don't say the cards have to be one of each yeti color.)
This is a cute way to play a game of memory. The igloos move around quite a bit, so you really do have to pay attention. Little kids will like that it's sort of like playing hide and seek with the character pieces, and there's always that suspenseful moment when you lift up the igloo and are surprised that you either remembered the correct yeti or found the dreaded snow crab.
Yeti Forgetti is for two to four players ages 4 and up.
The game includes four igloos, three yetis, a snow crab, 32 cards, and rules.
The cards are small and can be difficult to shuffle.
