Is there anything else like Igloo Pop?

Igloo Pop might not be the weirdest game I’ve ever played or the most unique but I don’t know of another game that’s anything like it.

Okay. Stripping all the gloss off the game, you have twelve rattles with two to thirteen beads in them. You have to figure out how many beads are in them by listening to them. Flipping them over to look at the labels is cheating :P

There’s a little more to the game than that. After all, you have to competitively listen to rattles and get points in order to figure out who wins the game. But the heart of the game is figuring out how many beads are in a rattle.   

I’m pretty sure that I’ve gotten rid of my copy. Igloo Pop is such a neat idea but it’s harder in practice to get more than a ballpark idea of the number of beads. Which wouldn’t be a game breaker for me except that I could never get anyone to play the game :P

It is supposedly a children’s game but I think our son would either get distracted by the toy factor or, more likely now that he’s getting older, frustrated with it. So I don’t really regret no longer owning it, even though we’re parents now.

All that said, I still like Igloo Pop. It’s such a fun idea and if there’s anything else like it out there, I don’t know about it.
