The Fuzzies

Play OverviewPlay Overview

The Fuzzies (2021) is a dexterity game where you remove and replace small fuzzy balls from a furry tower. Like Jenga, it's a challenge of not only deft movement but also carefully planning which ball to move. The twist here is how the forfeits introduce all manner of imaginative complications that both make it more challenging but also more fun.

Play involves drawing a card and then carefully removing a matching fuzzy ball using either tweezers or your fingers and then sticking it back on the tower. You have to be seated and can't move from your seat while you are working on moving the fuzzy ball.

If any balls drop off you have to draw Forfeit cards equal to the number of balls dropped and do the challenge on your next turn. Things like covering your eyes or playing with your non-dominant hand. The game ends when someone knocks over the tower, at which point they lose and everyone else wins.
