Something Wild! is a new Funko card game that every Disney fan is sure to love! A fun family game that is perfect for game night. Thank you Funko for sending us Something Wild! to try out. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
My family is big on games. We have a family game night at least once a week and is always a great bonding experience for us. Electronics go off and we just enjoy each others company. So whenever we get the chance to add another game to our collection, we take it.
Something you might know about me is that I have a bit of a Funko collection. I am also a tad obsessed with Disney. So when Funko offered to send me a copy of their new game, Something Wild!, that is coming out on August 15th, I just had to say yes. A card game featuring some of my favorite Disney characters — complete with a collectible mini Funko?! I didn’t even have to think about it.
Something Wild! puts a new twist on family game nights with six different Disney-themed sets featuring adorable figures of our favorite characters. A new line of card games featuring beloved Disney characters and collectible Pop! pocket figures.
Play numbered and colored character cards to make sets and runs. Score a set to snag the character figure’s special power that helps you win! The first player to score three powers wins the game. Combine multiple games to add more character cards, more Pop! figures, and more powers to your game!
Why We Love Something Wild!
Something Wild! immediately became a family favorite for several reasons. First of all, it involves Disney characters. And any game that involves Disney characters is a hit in the Smith household. We were send the Aladdin and the Toy Story packs but honestly, I know we are going to purchase all the rest. There isn’t even a question in our minds about it. Once they are available on August 15th, we will own them all.
Personally, my favorite aspect of this game is that you can mix and match different decks. It gives you more special powers to play with and makes the game even more fun. Don’t get me wrong, you can totally have a blast with just one deck too! With the low price point of $8 a deck it is more than worth it. I would pay that for the mini collectible figure alone but shhhh… don’t tell Funko!
My husband’s favorite think about Something Wild! is that it is short enough to be able to get a few rounds in after dinner. He works long hours so by the time we are done with dinner on a weeknight, it is practically bed time for our young daughters. Now we have a fun game we can sneak in before bed!
Something Wild! is also really easy to figure out. My daughters are 7 and 9 and they had no problems with the rules. By the second round of play all four of us completely understand the game, and were working on our own strategies to win.
