I bought this game for my nephew for Christmas and he/we love it!

The game is very educational in both math and strategy skills. The cows are adorable and the illustrations on the cards got more than a few giggles out of both kids and adults.

In a time where video games seem to overpower educational toys, it is my job as the "cool Aunt" to provide board games, something lost I'm afraid to today's youth. However, my nephew wanted to play this one, over and over and over, forgetting about video games for awhile.

The game basics are pretty simple, you have to lay down cards until a wave crests (addition) and then bring the wave back down to shore (subtraction). When the wave hits a certain number, you or an opponent get a special wipeout card. If you lay a card and the total of the wave (someone has to keep track throughout) equals the number on their wipeout card... WIPEOUT, you have to grab a cow. The object is to have the least amount of cows at the end of the game.

I highly recommend this game to everyone, you won't be disappointed! This game is fun for both kids and adults!

Cowabunga dude!

My son just turned 7, and this is one of the games I bought him for his birthday. In addition to being kind of fun, it gets the gears moving because you have to remember numbers that you want to avoid when you're adding and subtracting. That's really the gist of the game.

Everybody takes an Obstacle Card. This card is a cute picture of a surfing obstacle (shark, rock, lochness monster, etc) with a number on it. Obstacle card numbers range from 10 to 30, and when somebody's holding an obstacle card in their hand, you don't want to be the person who puts down a Wave card that ends up totaling the number on one of those obstacle cards.

It's the wave cards you play throughout the game in a play-a-card-draw-a-card mechanic. Start out the game with a number...say, 10. You discard a Wave card that has the number 5 on it. Now you're at 15. Next person discards a 6. Now you're at 21. Next person discards a 7. Now you're at 28. Whoever plays a card that puts the total over 30 has to give an Obstacle card (the card with the number you want to avoid) to the player to their left (or right...I forget). When you pass 30, you have to go back down again, so now it's time to subtract. So if it's on 32, you play a 6 and it's down to 26. Woops! Somebody has an obstacle card with the number 26! You get a Cowabunga cow (a little figure of a cow holding a surf board). As soon as somebody collects four of these cows, the game is over.

The one with the fewest cows by game's end wins.
If there's a tie, the one with the most obstacle cards wins.

So you have adding...as cards are played, you lay down a card on the discard pile and shout out the number of the running total.

You have subtracting...

Cowabunga is a fun card game for all ages. Not only is it fun to try to make everyone else wipe out, but it reinforces adding and subtracting skills as well. I knew very little about the game before I bought it. [...]. After reading the brief description, I decided I had to have it. It was very easy to learn and we caught on quickly.
