|Crazy Bones is inspired by a game played in Ancient Greece called 'Astragals', where children played a similar game using sheep's knuckle bones. This ancient pastime is also known as Tabas. Crazy Bones is a modern version of this game, played with characters molded from plastic. There are hundreds of individual characters, each character having a unique face and name. Other than the collectible nature of Crazy Bones there are multiple games that can be played with the figurines. |
Gameplay is as follows:
Traditional: players take turns flicking pieces at their opponents gogos, points are scored depending on how many of their opponents gogos are knocked over.
On-Line: players throw pieces towards a line on the ground, the closest to the line wins.
Bowling: players line up multiple pieces and 'bowl' a further piece at them.
Bomber: players place multiple pieces in a circle on the ground, then throw a further piece at them in an attempt to knock them out of the circle.
