I just happened upon this game because my son (6 years old at the time) was really interested in aliens and ufo's. What a happy surprise! It's very easy to understand- can be played by two people or two teams - and the main idea is that there are two UFO's each trying to pull in cows from the middle. The little cows are adorable- and players roll dice to see which cow or combinations of cows can be sucked closer to their UFO. The first UFO to collect 3 cows wins the game. It's straightforward and moves pretty quickly- you won't be in it for marathon sessions like some other games. It's different from all of the other games out there and makes a perfect gift!

Quality game. A little simple for my taste, but a good way to kill some time with the kids. There is a little strategy in figuring which cow(s) to try to move, advance yourself or set back your opponent. It's based on Yahtzee rolls, so that part is pretty much chance.

Confession: I really want to be a Yahtzee fan. I know, it's THE classic dice game. It's a mix of tactics and luck, which can be fun. But I hate wasting dice rolls. I hate waiting around while other players do their thing, which I can have no influence over. And I hate using up the scorecards, in case they never print them again (I know, OCD, but it's how my mind works).

Anyway, I do play Yahtzee sometimes, but it's always tinged with a bitter taste.

No longer! Cosmic cows solves all the problems of Yahtzee. You almost never waste a dice roll. There's very little waiting around. The dice rolls of the other player ALWAYS impact you. Conflict is built into the came. And, best of all, there are no scorecards.

Also, you get 10 cute plastic cows. What's not to love?

My only gripe is that it claims to be a game for 2-6 players, which is disingenuous. It's a two player game. You can add more players by playing in "teams", but why would you want to do that?

If you've ever fantasized about becoming an alien and abducting cows to force them to take part in an extra-terrestrial tug-of-war contests, this game might prove too much for you to handle. Purchase at your own risk.

Otherwise, highly recommended.

Got this game on a whim and something to kill time. The rules are very simple and would probably really be good for a parent/child game night. We decided to change the rules to make it a little harder and it made the game drag a lot. Typical Yahtzee style game, dice chucking game.
The theme is cute with cows and aliens but that's pretty much it.

My husband brought this home from a gaming convention a few years ago. We love this game, I had to buy it for my sister (who loves cows). It's just like Yahtzee so we also use it for the kids to learn some math skills.

Its a simple game, best played by 2 players, but you could do teams by switching off. Pretty easy to learn and can be very fun if you enjoy games like Yahtzee. Great for kids and adults.
