Heads Talk Tails Walk

Ages: 3 and upManufacturer: ThinkFun Inc.


This animal matching game with a very silly twist was a fast favorite of our testers. Designed for 2-5 players ages 3 and up, the goal is to correctly match Head and Body tiles to create one of the games 10 adorably illustrated animals such as, a seal, an elephant, a monkey, a snake, a frog, and more.

Game setup is quick and easy: Stack the Large Body Tiles face up in the middle and lay out the Small Head Tiles face down around it. Players take turns flipping over Head tiles to try to match to the body tile shown. If it’s a match? Great! Keep the tiles and it’s the next player’s turn. Uh oh, not a match? This is where the fun begins! ALL players then have to move in a circle around the tiles as a group imitating the walk of the animal shown on the Body tile and “talk” like the animal shown on the Head tile. Our testers delighted in roaring like a dinosaur while galloping like a horse and slithering like a snake while barking like a seal. Once all players have returned to their seats, the Body tile is turned back over and it’s the next player’s turn to flip a Head tile. Game play continues until all the tiles have been rightly paired. The player with the most matches wins the game!
