Big Little Games Flingin’ Frogs Review (PlayMonster)

What It Is

Big Little Games Flingin' Frogs involves catapulting 12 miniature frogs onto five tiers of lily pads. Each tier is worth different points, and the object is to score the most points. The game comes with a lily pad with five levels and 12 colored frogs to fling. Each player chooses which color frogs to play with: purple, blue, red, or yellow. (There are three of each color.) Stack the lily pad levels with the lowest point value (10) on the bottom. Place the assembled lily pad on a level, steady playing surface. On your turn, position a frog to "stand" on the playing surface and aim it toward the lily pad level you hope to land on. Using your finger, press down on the frog's rear to fling it forward. As your finger slips off, the frog should jump toward the lily pad. Once your turn is over, keep your frog where it landed on the lily pad and let the next player go. Watch out because other frogs may knock off your frogs. Once all frogs have been flung, the game ends and players count any points their frogs have scored. Any frogs not on a lily pad or in the pond are worth zero points. Frogs in the pond are worth 10, the bottom pad is worth 20, the next pad up is worth 30, the top pad is worth 40, and the flower is worth 50. When the game is over, the lily pad pieces turn into a storage and travel case. The game is for one to four players.
