Disclosure: I received a Squawk sample from Mattel to facilitate this post All opinions are my own.
My daughters have always loved board games. Although my autistic son requires a much more engaging game to keep himself interested. Because we love board games in our house, I have always made an effort to find at least one board based game a year that will interest my son enough to keep him playing. Squawk, with it’s noises and opening doors will definitely accomplish that.
Our youngest daughter always makes an attempt to include her brother in most of the board games she plays and while she is not always successful in getting his attention, he will actually sit and play with her on occasion. Using games like this will mean that not only will he occasionally sit and play with her, but he will enjoy it as well.
One egg? One rubber chicken? One exploding hen house? What is this game?
It’s a giggling Squawking fun game for 2-4 players and recommended for kids age four years old and up! The Squawking chicken sound effects make the game more fun, as well as bring a bundle of laughs to your family game night.

How to Play Squawk
Roll the dice and then press on the chicken’s chest the number of times shown on the dice, and you’ll hear a funny “SQUAWK!” If she doesn’t lay an egg, then it’s the next player’s turn. But if the hen house opens, she’ll lay an egg that you get to crack open.
Did the token inside land egg side up or chick side up?
Egg side up: you’re out of luck this time, and it’s the next player’s turn.
Chick side up: you get to collect a chick token. Reset the chicken and keep going until all six chick tokens are collected.
The player who collects the most chick tokens is declared the winner. Recommended for kids ages 4+
