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

Coilz are spring-based collectibles intended for trading and on-the-go playtime. In total, there are 50 Coilz in the first season, all of which are available through random blind box-style booster packs of four or eight.

The Coilz Cup is a self-contained game set, including six Coilz, two backboards, two friction pads, a game ball, a distance marker, and a set of game instructions. It offers upwards of 10 gametypes out of the box, including traditional "hoops," and even bowling-style games.

The Coilz Stadium is designed as a more impressive "playset"-style upgrade to what the Cup has to offer, which also slightly expands gameplay options in the process. Included in the box are a set of four Coilz, one Coilz Cup, 10 targets, all game board pieces, and a collector's guide. The board is a double-sided play area that accommodates for over 15 styles of game, many of which are expanded versions of offerings from the Coilz Cups. However, certain game types will receive a boost because of the board layout, in particular the HORSE-inspired game mode and bowling mode.

Is It Fun?

It will be for some, but not for all; while a fine concept, and one that was highly functional and play-worthy, it didn't exactly strike me as something exciting or groundbreaking. Honestly, I found myself kind of bored during play testing, despite having respect for the wealth of options available. While I applauded the collectability of the Coilz themselves, I felt like the art (which is honestly the most important element of this collectible) didn't really offer anything more exciting than what equated to an emoji.
