Review:

Featuring a cast of characters deemed the "Unfindables" (including Yetis, gnomes, mermaids, dragons, and even the Loch Ness Monster) this fast-paced board game sends players on a mythic game of hide-and-seek.

Set up is simple: form a 3 x 3 grid of 9 game board cards: 8 are illustrated with "Unfindables" and 1 is the starlit mountain centerpiece of Yetis numbered from 0 to 8. Gameplay is fast and furious: one player flips a picture card and all players race to find how many total matches can be found on the grid.

Not only do players scan the boards to match the "Unfindable," they need to count how many matches they've found and be the first to snatch the Yeti holding up the number that matches their count. Then, as a group, players count the number of matching "Unfindables" and award the card to the player holding the correct number. The player with the most cards wins.

Thanks to the double sided "Unfindable" cards, this clever, fun, and habit forming game is different at every turn.
