Who’s the G.O.A.T? from Big G Creative and designed by Peggy Brown, is exactly the game we need for stay at home fun. If you didn’t know, G.O.A.T. stands for greatest of all time, and finding out who is the greatest for a variety of different things is what the game is all about. It’s got squishy goats, it’s got a TON of cards with a variety of challenges, and it’s fun for a huge variety of ages even though it’s pretty G-rated.
How To Play
Everyone gets a squishy goat (there are 6 in the box) and then a card is flipped. The card is read out loud to the group and then on the count of “Ready-Set-Goat!” everyone tosses their squishy goat at the person they think is the G.O.A.T at that particular thing. You can choose yourself by tossing your goat up in the air and catching it. Everyone who has a goat now gets to compete to see who really is the G.O.A.T. Some cards are:
- Who can do the best pirate impression?
- Who is the best at performing I’m a Little Teapot?
- Who can make the best paper airplane using the goat paper?
There’s a pad of paper in the box along with some pencils and a timer which are used for various challenges. If there’s a clear winner after all of the G.O.A.T. contenders give it a shot, then everyone who voted for them gets a tin can token. The winner of the round also gets a tin can token – so if you voted for yourself, you’ll get two. If there isn’t a clear winner a vote is taken to determine who performed the task/challenge the best.
Who’s the G.O.A.T? has got squishy goats, it’s got a TON of cards with a variety of challenges, and it’s fun even for kids and adults even though it’s pretty G-rated. I tested it with a 5 year old and we had to skip some of the cards, but her I’m a Little Teapot performance killed us all! We’ve played several times, sometimes just one round sometimes multiple — and the scoring makes that easy. Choose to play until someone reaches a certain number of tokens, or until you’ve gone around the circle letting people be the card reader once, twice or three times. You choose what works for you! Everyone loved the squishy goats and pelting …I mean tossing them to the G.O.A.T contender was pretty fun too! Definitely recommend this one for your upcoming family game night.
