Clumsy Thief Review- Card Game of Counting Cash

Clumsy Thief Review- Card Game of Counting Cash


– Hi! – We’re Rainy Day Dreamers. – And we’re trying out a brand new game. it involves money and
it’s called Clumsy Thief. ♫ Rainy Day Dreamers ♫ Rainy Day Dreamers ♫ – Since Clumsy Thief
is a game about money, how much does it cost? It’s about $15, if you can’t
find it in your local toystore we’ll put a link to it
down below this video. Looks really interesting,
I think you may actually practice some math skills
without really intending to. Let’s see what comes in the game. It’s basically a card game but it looks really interesting because it involves keeping track of how much money you have. So, we have the instructions. – It looks like it’s a
story starting itself. – Mm hmm, you guys take a look at that. We have a, cute little box here, we have a deck of cards,
heh, we have a jail. Ok, and you may have noticed we have some nice Easter decorations
that have started coming in here for our wall. Thank you very much for the Dream Team members who have sent those to us. – Thank you! – Now Ximena got a little
confused about the holidays. – Oh ha ha! – Thought it was Christmas. She was getting a head cold I guess so she wanted to wear that hat. – No, it’s so for the
money, when I steal it I can just shove it up in there. – I see, she’s gonna keep
piles of money in the hat. (laughs) Now, as near as we can
tell, the way this works is everybody gets seven cards face down you pick them up, you look at them and you’re trying to make money stacks. I think there are 96 cards here. Turns out, the other
parts, the other piece, of the cardboard in the
game, you don’t need that. It’s just a card game really. So we’re each going to
make our money stacks and then we’ll try to steal the
money from the other people. I’ll show you some of the cards it’ll make it easier to understand. All the cards are either money with an amount on them, or, you have a jail card, and
for a jail card to be any good you need to have some thief cards. Where’s one of those? Thief! Ok, so what you’re going to do is, you look at the money amounts of the cards in your hand
and then any two cards that equals $100 will allow
you to make a money pile. So you take those two cards, lets say a $20 and an $80, you
put them down, face up, and now you have a money pile. Now when you have your money pile, somebody else who has a card with a value that when added to the
top card equals $100 they basically put their card on top that’s now $100, and they
slide it in front of them. If you have a thief card you can put that on anybody’s money pile,
however much is in it, put the thief on top, slide it to you. But if they have a thief card, they can put a thief
card on top of the thief and slide it back. And then the last thing
are the jail cards. Once you put a jail card, which can only go on top of a thief, and
pull the pile over to you, it stays there, nothing
can trump a jail card so no one can take that
money away from you. That’s all there is to it. You take turns, everyone
then takes extra cards you go another round. Roxanna doesn’t look too optimistic about this being a fun game. – You’re gonna have to show us. – OK – I’m just so confused. – OK. – I think it’s pretty simple so we will show you here how
we would play the game. By the way Clumsy Thief
is for ages eight and up for two to six players. So here we go, seven cards
face down to start with. These cards just sit here. Everybody look at their cards. Now what we’re gonna look
for are money amounts that we can add together that equal 100. I’ll show you my cards. So here’s my set of seven cards you can see the amounts. Do any two amounts equal $100? If so, I will start a money pile. I also have this one, and this one. So I’m in pretty good shape
to start out here I think. Everybody make your money piles. Do some math in the head. (mumbles) And then you get that plus
that, no that doesn’t work. Oh, I got one, OK. Ok, now, the thief card
you can use at anytime. You don’t have to wait until anybody’s done with their stuff so if
you’ve got a thief card… Go ahead. – Ohhh! – Where’s the thief card? – Oh, poo. – Oh, yeah, you have to wait on that. The thief card you can steal at any time but I think you’re supposed to wait until everybody’s ready and
then you add the money on top but it said thief cards
are whenever you’re ready. So even the poo, can get
that in a little bit. OK, has everybody had a
chance to make their piles? You still working on it? – Oh, no you just stole mine. – (laughs) Can you make another pile? – No. – Ok, All right, in that case, everybody go! So basically it’s you and me trying to steal hers and her trying to steal ours. (Roxanna grunts) Darn it, Ahhhh Nooo Oh! $45 and $55, that’s $100. Is that my original one I just got back? – Yes. – OK, so I don’t have anything else that I can do with that. I do have a jail card,
I figured what the heck I’m gonna lock this down now. So, now that that’s all we can do, everybody takes a card,
and don’t look at it until we are all ready. As soon as you look at it, go again! Make a pile if you can, steal if you can, be a thief if you can. One, two, three, go! No, I can’t do anything. Ahh, she had a thief card so she was able to take my pile. – Do I keep making fresh
piles out of my stuff? – Yes, every time you can
make a pile with your cards you have to make a pile with your cards. – OK – Oh wait, wait! – Oh you can make one, good. Got $20? – I’m trying, I’m trying, it’s
all the numbers… (laughs) – It’s all the numbers. That’s the idea, it’s fast paced numbers. – I’m not good at fast paced numbers, I’m good at slow paced numbers. – OK, then here we go
again, one, two three! – Ooh! oh! – Yeah? There you go, now you can make a new pile. – Wow! – OK
– Stealing your pile. – I’m glad I used that jail card earlier. – So my pile doesn’t
get mixed up with yours I’m just going to put it there. – I think this will work better honestly if we have three piles
and we each take one than me handing them out each time. So let’s try that. When somebody has no cards left or there are no cards here then it’s done. Ready, one, two, three, next! – Wait, wait, wait, no. – (laughs) A little math
issue going on there, OK. – Oh, ha ha. – Oh, I got my first jail! Oh my gosh! – Oh, well you can use
that whenever you want. – All I’ve gotten is like,
money the entire game. – There’s a new pile in case anybody… – Wait but if I have my own pile can I add something to it
or does that not count? – You can, they seem to think it’s not a good idea in the
instructions but I don’t know. If you want to get rid
of some cards, go ahead. – Oh wait, oh wait, oh wait. – You locked your down own into jail? – Mmmm, yeah. – Roxanna you’re ahead, somehow. And I’m certainly behind. – Can you put this on the 25? – 25 on the 25, that’s your pile now, for the moment. Cause I got 25, thank you. – Oh and thank you! – Oh. (sighs) I was ahead for a moment. – Oh can I? – (coughs) Yeah take all
my money, that’s fine, – It’s ok if I? – Sure, go ahead. – You always have this one. – Yeah. – Can you plop this onto the 55? – Sure. Not only that, I’ll plop this onto the 40 and when they figure out it’s one pile! – Wait! – Oh wait, yeah. – Oh yeah. – Yeah, yeah yeah. – If we clear a little room here I may get more money at
some point in my life I don’t know. Oh, I can take that one. – No! That was my biggest one! – Yes, that’s the big
chunky one, I like it! – Well I can’t do anything else. Wait, can I? No wait, yes I can!
(giggling) – Ah. – Ah I have one thing! – Oh I caught that at the last moment. – One two three. I’m taking this nice big pile. – No, Oh. – Hmmm. (giggles) – Oh, what did I make just then? I made a neighing sound! – Huh? – Darn it! – Can you put this on the 85? – I’m gonna put the 75 on the 85. – Oh, (giggles) what’s happening? – Math skills are not
improving as the game goes on. (laughs) – You can steal from me if you want. – I’m stealing, thank you very much. I’m stealing this, woah! Wherever it goes, I’m stealing! Nope, It’s not gonna
stay with you that long. Sorry. Tell me the one you
want I’ll slide it over. I’m just gonna go, can I
go shopping for a second? – Da da da, no poking through! Just judge by what it looks like on top. – I’ll do the, the upper one. – The upper one. That now becomes yours forever. – Phew, because this one is full of $50s. – Oh. – So it’s worth more. – No, if it has the same number of cards then it’s got to be the same. Cause it has equal amount… – Oh, I thought it was like… – Well I’m gonna go ahead and play my last two cards, that
makes 100, that makes 100. I’m completely out, game is over. But I guess you guys can
continue to play this round. I don’t know if the gameplay
stops when I do that? Oh go ahead, take my money. Ok, now the extra cards
you’re not going to play put them up here, these
are all throwaway cards. Don’t count for anything. Then you add up how much money you have. Now jail cards, zero. Thief cards is zero. Those cards are zero so you can take out your jail and your thief and then add the rest of them up. Can you do that in your head do you think, or are we gonna need a calculator? – Wait, of how much money is on each… – How many hundreds you have I guess is what we’re actually looking for. If you keep them together
you should be able to add them in hundreds
pretty quickly, pretty easily. Ok, I know how much I have. 19-15, $1,915. – This doesn’t work, I think
I matched something up wrong. Did my plan not work? – No you, no depending on the stacks you can end up with
having leftover amounts that don’t match anywhere. – Oh, thank goodness. – So let’s take these separate, 1,335. 1,915, $600. Good job Ximena. – Wait, I won? – Yeah, by a lot. – OK, we need to put them
back together and shuffle. Did you guys want to play again? What did you think of the game? – Yeah, yeah, yeah! Can we play again? – The rules became much
clearer as the game played. – OK, so it was a good game afterall? – Mm hmm! – And did it help you do a
little math in your head? – Yes. – Hmm, yeah, yeah. – It makes you try anyway, yeah. Now it is good for that. So we will shuffle these up
and we’ll play another game. If you’re interested in this
game called Clumsy Thief we’ll have a link to it
down below this video. Goes for about $15 and apparently the 11 year old age
bracket, and the 14 year old age bracket both say it’s a fun game. I’d like it more if I
hadn’t lost by so much. But, no it’s good for
practicing doing the numbers in your head and doing them fast. So, we will be doing
some other game reviews in the future too. You can keep checking
