A race against time kind of card game with super cute Disney Tsum Tsum characters on them, stored inside a super cute Disney Tsum Tsum tin, fans will love this Disney Tsum Tsum Bubble Fever game! Esdevium Games has kindly sent one to us for review.
Disney Tsum Tsum Bubble Fever card game (suitable for children age 6+, approximately £7.99) comes with a super cute tin to store the cards (suitable for travelling!), 16 Bubble cards, 96 Tsum and Starter cards, and an instruction sheet.
The Tsum cards consist of normal Tsum cards and large Tsum cards (those with x3 on).
To play, each player gets a certain number of Bubble cards (depending on the number of player there are), and an equal number of Tsum cards (mixed with Starter cards).
All players play at the same time by flicking open the top card onto a discarded pile. At the beginning, as soon as they see a Starter card (which has a number of Tsum Tsum characters on), they can place it in the middle of the table as long as there are less than 3 Starter cards.
Players will then try to match their Tsum card with a Tsum on the Starter card, and build up that stack of cards based on that first Tsum card character.
Players can use their Bubble card to claim a stack of cards from the middle of the table. The more cards there are the more points it will have. Those will be placed next to the player as a Claim pile (not to be mixed with their discard pile, which is the original deck of cards in their hand).
The game ends when all players have used up all their Bubble cards.
Players will then have to add up the points they get from the Starter, Bubble and Tsum cards, but minus the cards that are left in their discard pile. The player with most points win the game.
I swear I was better at the game because I'm quicker, but at the end it was Abby who won because she claimed bigger stacks with more Big Tsum cards in them!
We love it because the cards are super cute, and we all play at the same time so there is no waiting needed. Kids will deal the cards slower so as the adult I'll have to wait for them, but that's ok, it's quite relaxing for me and still fun (especially when the cards are so cute!).
It's also a brilliant game for little ones to practise their Numeracy by adding and deducting points!
If you love Tsum Tsum and a quick game, especially during travels, it's definitely worth considering getting Disney Tsum Tsum Bubble Fever, which is out now in all good toy stores.
