On ‘Go’ or the count of three (we covered the card with our hands so that no one could cheat), you then need to copy the puzzle on the card using your puzzle pieces.

The first to complete it is the winner and presses the other player’s coloured button to pop their board which causes their pieces to fly out.

The players then need to check to make sure that the solution is correct. If not the other player wins that round. You then change the puzzle to start the next round. 

Each match usually only takes a minute or so to play and on first look, the game looked appeared to be aimed just at children. I presumed that I would continually beat my kids( I never let them win) and would become bored. However, after they both played a couple of times and learnt the shapes it became anyone’s game and they have beat me more than I would like to admit.

The game is also more nerve-wracking than I would have guessed. You can’t see what pieces your opponent is placing on the board just hear them trying to fit them in and reaching for next shape. This makes you try to go faster, making them go faster and you both end up making mistakes.

The instructions leave it up to you for how many rounds you can play so that the game can be as long or as short as you like. We have tended to the first of 5, 7 or 10 depending on how much time we had on the day. 

What we thought of Kanoodle Head To Head?

We have all really enjoyed playing Kanoodle Head To Head. It is such a simple game to set up and even more so to play and each match is very quick, which all make it highly addictive.

The fast matches also make it an ideal game to play when you are short on time and the fact that it all packs away into a small board makes a great travel game. 

Kanoodle Head To Head has become a go-to game especially for the kids who frequently pick it up to play it together with surprisingly very few arguments – and I don’t think you can get a better recommendation than that.
