ToyFair15HorizontalYup, Mad Cave Bird Games is a real name for a company. I swear I’m not making that up. To prove it to you, I’m going to cover two of their games I saw at Toy Fair this year.

ColorKu – $34.99

ColorKu is bascially Sudoku but with colorful wooden balls instead of numbers. The game comes with 104 different puzzle cards that you need to solve. Just like in Sudoku, you can only have 1 of each color in every row and column. There’s 3 additional packs of 104 puzzle cards that can be purchased for $9.95 each.

Tic Tac Ku – $29.99

Tic Tac Ku

An interesting twist on Tic Tac Toe. Played on the game board as ColorKu, players play a game of Tic Tac Toe where they’re trying to win the different zones on the board by getting 3 in a row. The gimmick here is that each player controls which segment of the board the other plays their next turn in. By placing a ball in the lower right hand corner of a segment, the next player must now play in the lower right hand segment. Played a ball in the middle of a segment? The next player has to play a ball in the center segment of the board.  It actually works out pretty well. Also, if you already own ColorKu you can just buy a Tic Tac Ku pieces kit for $14.95.
