Frenzi Card Game
FRENZI CARD GAME
Frenzi is a brilliantly frenetic high octane card game!
The two sided cards in Frenzi consist of a range of different shapes and colours, with a different number of shapes on the 64 Frenzi cards. Players get a base card showing a particular set of characteristics, and then everyone plays at the same time flipping cards over to try to leave them matching their base card while the sand timer runs down, looking to have the most matches when the time has run out. There are 9 rounds of play with each having a different matching objective e.g. match the colours in one round, the shapes in the next etc.
The thing is with this type of game it’s difficult to communicate the quality of the playing experience by describing what you have to do in the game. Instead we prefer to look at the dynamic of the play – in the case of Frenzi, play proceeds (as the name suggests) at a rip snorting speed, with players having to move as quickly as they can to try to turnover and show matching cards, but at the same time the other players are frantically doing the same thing leading to a great deal of excitement and a little tactical play. Do you focus on an area other players aren’t playing in, or do you follow behind another player changing the cards they just flipped? Sometimes you can end up with a standoff with another player who takes exception at you changing the cards they just turned, but all the while another player might be quietly sneaking ahead on the other side of the cards!
This is the type of game that becomes a family favourite – it can be played by pretty much anyone, you don’t need any particular knowledge or a particular mindset, all you need is a pair of hands and your eyes! And it doesn’t take any time at all to get the hang of the rules, which can only be a good thing!
WHO’S IT FOR: Frenzi can be enjoyed by nearly anyone, we’d say it starts around 6 years of age, but you could play this game with family or friends at nearly any occasion.
THE TOY VERDICT: We loved this game. It’s quick and simple, but utterly compelling! Players quickly get into it, and before long are well into a frenzied, frenetic gameplay. Highly recommended.
