Do you have the balls… of wool …
to keep your Granny at the top of her game?
Or will you be needled and stitched up by the other players?
Your Granny's position as the town's top handicrafter is threatened by upstart contenders from a new retirement community. Your task is to try to help her, while distracting and sabotaging her competitors – but if you don't keep your loyalty hidden, the other players will definitely stitch you up!
Watch: How to play Granny Wars
Pick a granny at random, memorize who you have and start playing cards on the piles. The aim is to end up with your granny having the highest points, but don't be in a rush to put all the good cards on her, otherwise you make it nice and easy for your opponents to work out who you are and try to sabotage you. Cards also have the ability to bounce, put a +3 on a -3 and you can send that -3 onto someone else's pile and it works for both positive and negative cards.
We only picked up this game as my eldest thought it would be hilarious to gift to his own granny and got a lot of play time thanks to it being easy to throw in the bag and play anywhere.
