The Card Game of Surfin' Steer!
Catch a wave in Cowabunga, the brand new card game of ups and downs!
Ride high on the wave, dodging obstacles as you play number cards to raise or lower the water level. Once the tide gets too high, it starts dropping. Too low, and it goes back up again. Each time the tide changes, somebody gets an obstacle card. If you crash on someone else's obstacle, it's wipeout city for you, dude! If you can finish the game with the least amount of wipeouts, you'll be the big Cow-huna!
<= Do note that the video shows a different (out of print) edition from the one we are selling.
Reviews & Comments
"Cowabunga is very light, but there's some fun and some challenge to playing it. There's also a lot of luck, but I don't mind that in short games. If the fun level is high, than luck is okay by me. While not very deep, Cowabunga is highly satisfying if you're looking for something a little different. The game is easy enough to play with kids probably about 8 and up but is entertaining enough to please adults as well. This is a terrific little filler game that will always be welcome at my table and will always have a spot in my collection. " Read the entire review by Stormseeker75 of BoardGameGeek.
"This game is best classified as light filler or a children's game. Its easy enough in concept that the strong emphasis on memory and basic math makes it almost seem like it was targeted at the children's market. But the general lightness of the game, cute components and “watch your buddy screw up” nature of the game makes this heifer a winner at any age."
