All good game nights have snacks, but with Chow Crown, the snacks are part of the game. Sign me up.
Hasbro takes eating competitions to a new, super fun level with this tasty party game. Designed for two or more players ages 8 and up, the rules are simple: Try to eat as many snacks off the forks as you can before the music stops. And—of course—you cannot use your hands. The player who gets the most snacks is the winner.
Snap the crown together, load in the forks, and add in your snacks. Obviously, Chow Crown comes sans-snacks, but you can add in just about anything you can think of. Marshmallows, Swedish Fish, Totino’s Pizza Rolls, Doritos, dried fruit, Rice Krispy treats, etc. Basically, if you can eat it, you can play Chow Crown with it. Just make sure your snacks are large enough for you to grab with your mouth at a slight distance—the smaller the piece, the harder it will be to bite. On the flipside, the heavier the snack, the easier it will be to snag, since the weight causes the forks to swing in your favor (thanks, gravity!).
Chow Crown follows the age-old moniker of easy to learn, difficult to master. The crown rotates in different directions, so just when you think you are about to chomp down on a yummy morsel, everything spins in the opposite direction.
I highly recommend making sure a few hair ties are on hand for players with long locks—for sanitary reasons, and to make sure nothing gets in the way of your impending victory.
The forks are all hand-washable, and easily snap off the crown so they can be sanitized after gameplay ends. The forks are also completely adjustable, so you can figure out which length they need to be for each player before gameplay begins.
Chow Crown will be an instant favorite with kids and adults alike. Gameplay is fast, intensely fun, and hilariously silly. To be honest, the biggest thing that kept me from biting more snacks was my own uncontrollable laughter.
Easily destined to be one of the hottest games of the year, it’s definitely a good idea to grab this before it’s gone from the shelves. One thing’s for sure: Victory never tasted so sweet.
