Elsa the wiggling cow loves to eat fresh grass. In this game the question which comes into play is how much grass can you pull from under Elsa before she tips over? It looks a lot easier than you might think. It is definitely a curious game of skill and technique.
HABA has always been known for the very best in quality in the products they produce and the Wackelkuh - Wiggling Cow Board Game holds true to that same quality. This game is such a perfect example of how simplicity can be so deceptive as you will soon see.

Here you have a wiggling cow who goes by the name of Elsa. The game board has an image which is a simulation of a field or farm yard upon which you place the firm square shaped tiles which represent grass. Elsa is then placed on top of these grass tiles, (easier said than done.) You have to remember that Elsa is a "wiggling" cow. She must be carefully placed on the tiles or else her legs will wiggle and down she goes!

What comes next is each player has to take the wooden fork which comes with the game and try to see how much grass they can remove from beneath Elsa without her beginning to wiggle and topple over. The concept of this task is such a creative masterpiece of deception, creating an illusion of a simple task to perform which soon afterward evolves into a quite stimulating challenge which will keep a child thoroughly engaged.
