Hex Bug Lovers Will Love This Game! There's A Bug In The Kitchen

Holiday wish lists are being made now in my house and I am sure my kids are not the only ones dreaming of Christmas morning already!

Check out this fun and family-friendly game from Ravensburger called Bugs in the Kitchen.  We have done quite a few Ravensburger puzzles. In fact, they are currently the only puzzles I purchase. For more than 125 years, Ravensburger’s stand-out offerings – from “larger than life” 3D building sets and kid-powered toys, to dazzling puzzles and multi-award-winning games – have helped deliver hours of quality play time.  Bugs in the Kitchen is a perfect addition for your home that would definitely entertain your family over and over again!  Please find more info on the game below.

Guide the Bug into Your Trap to Win
There's a bug in the kitchen! Hurry--get rid of it! The "bug" is a battery-operated Hexbug nano that crawls across the 3D game board as players attempt strategic moves to lead it into their traps.  The board features 24 utensils that rotate in place to create paths for the bug. Roll the die to see whether you can turn a fork, knife, or spoon to change the bug's trajectory. Start the bug in the middle of the board and move fast to turn the utensils in a direction that will lure the creeping creature into your snare. Be careful, a wrong move can let the bug escape your trap! Each bug you capture earns you one bug token, and the first player to collect five tokens wins the game.

The Hexbug® Nano from Innovation First is a micro robotic creature that reacts to its environment and runs on one AA battery (two included). The board can be set up for 2-4 players. The specially included die shows a fork, spoon, knife, or a question mark, telling the player what utensil they can move. Ages 6+, SRP $24.99

·         For 2-4 players ages 6 and up
·         Playing time: 15-20 minutes
·         Contains 1 Hexbug® Nano® with 2 batteries

The 411 by Maria:

We love our Hex Bugs in fact we have over 15 of them and they can usually be seen walking across the table or in their Hex Bug Habitrail. Now, we have a new way to use them and we love it!

There is some assembly required. The game is easy to put together. You simply punch out some circles or winning game pieces to be exact and insert to pegs into holes (that would be the silverware) roll the dice and go.

The game does come with a bug which we used to first time and have played enough to use each of our 15 bugs already.

The goal is to get the bugs to come to your side of the kitchen.

To play:

Roll the die
Depending on what you land a spoon, fork, knife or question mark you turn that utensil. If it is a question mark, turn whatever will bring the bug to your side of the kitchen.
Every time you get a bug in your section you take a game piece
The person with the most game pieces wins!

We loved it! The bug is jumping, you are flipping utensils and hoping that the path leads to your area. You can play with as few as two people and up to four. If you are doing two you simply use these little rectangles to block the other two areas.

Kids as young as 4 can play this game even though the age says 6.

Disclaimer: No monetary compensation was received. A complimentary game was delivered for my honest opinion.


  1. This makes sense! I always wondered--what exactly do you DO with a Hex Bug? Now I know you play this game!

  2. This sounds like fun. My oldest granddaughter is fascinated with bugs and I bet she would love this game :)
