Squawk is the latest addition to Mattel’s collection of games and will hit stores later this summer. In this new addition to the realm of roulette-style games, players test their luck to not only have the hen hatch an egg, but for the egg to crack chick-side up. The player that collects the most chick tokens by the end of the game is the winner.
Before play begins, kids set up the game area. The six chick tokens pop into the doors on the hen house and the chicken’s feet attach to the front of the hen house. Then, players put the egg—with the egg token inside of it—in the hole of the base of the hen house and secure the chicken in place over it.
The first player rolls the die and proceeds to push on the chicken’s chest the number of times shown. If nothing happens, that player’s turn is over and play continues to the next player. If the chicken “squawks,” the hen house will instantly burst open and the chicken will lay her egg.
Remember, a hen’s egg is only as good as what’s inside of it. The player picks up the egg and cracks it open. If the token inside lands chick side up, the player wins one of the tokens from inside the hen house. If the token inside the egg lands egg side up, then the player does not win anything and his or her turn is over for that round.
Players set up the hen house and continue to play until all tokens inside the hen house are gone. The player to collect the most tokens wins.
Squawk is full of little surprises that will keep kids on the edge of their seats. The fast-moving game is non-squawk fun and will keep the laughter alive all summer long.
