Flying Kiwis is an exciting skill game in which you can shoot kiwis with ramps to make them fly. Great for children’s birthday parties. Kiwi birds may be flightless, but with a little help from you, they can take to the air — possibly winning you Flying Kiwis in the process.
Who can catapult the kiwis into the box in the right formation?
The Kiwis are loose! The little Kiwis would like to go on vacation and relax a little far away from New Zealand. Too bad it’s not that easy, because although they’re birds, unfortunately, they can’t fly!
Another idea is needed. The Kiwis decide to smuggle themselves into a fruit transport. And what would fit better than kiwis? They are transported all over the world – so your vacation is secured! Catapults are quickly built to carry the little birds into the fruit crate. And now you come into play! Help the Kiwis get the best spots for their journey!

How to play?:
Aim of the game:
Whoever manages to be the first to land four of their kiwis in a square in the crate wins immediately. Otherwise, the kiwis are flicked until they are all in the box. Now the points are counted. The player with the most points wins the game. Each player starts with a stack of ten kiwi bird discs and a catapult ramp of sorts that has a rubber band on it. Everyone sits around the game box, which has sixteen pockets (or landing spaces) in a 4×4 grid. When someone gives the signal, everyone starts launching their kiwi discs at the box, trying to land them in the pockets. If someone creates a 2×2 square of kiwis or a 1×4 row of kiwis in their color, they win the game instantly — so don’t let them do this! Cover up their discs with yours, and keep shooting until all the kiwis have flown.
If no one wins instantly, then each player claims any stacks in which their kiwi is on top, taking all of the kiwis that lie underneath their bird as well. Players then stack their tokens, and whoever has the tallest stack wins!
