Bonkazonks is a strategy game where players flick, spin, stack and attack popular Avengers toys. Kids may also want to collect different characters and accessories.

What are Bonkazonks?

Bonkazonks are small top like figures that are flat on one side and rounded on the other. Some Bonkazonks could be a child's favorite Marvel's Avenger character like Iron Man, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Wolverine or Captain America.

There are also hundreds of other collectible figures. Each Bonkazonk is labelled and children can utilize the included pamphlet to begin marking which ones they own, and others they might want to collect. Kids will love collecting them, trading them, aside from engaging with them in competitive play.

Fun Face cases, such as Iron Man, Spider-Man or Captain America are available. Inside each face case are 4 Bonkazonks, a storage/display tray, a stunt card that teaches a new skill, a circular game board and an online code to learn new tricks.. The Face Case has a plastic lid that locks into place with a simple twist which encourages children to have a place to store their Bonkazonks and a way to easily transport them to friend's houses.

How to Play with Bonkazonks

Though Bonkazonks could be different colors, they all have the same general shape where they are weighted and rounded on one end, while flat on the other.

The flat side allows the Bonkazonk to stand in place. The rounded end allows the Bonkazonk to spin around and right itself. Bonkazonks are considered a "free-form stunt-battling game."

The game play itself sort of reminds me of old-school paper football games kids used to make where they would fold paper into a triangle, then attempt to flick it through 2 uprights.

Using various motions of flicking, spinning, and stacking, players attempt to complete any number of stunts, depending on the obstacles they have created. For example, they might try to flick 1 Bonkazonk and try and knock over another that is placed on the top of the target on top of the closed face case.

The instructions in the case included different ways to play. Kids may chose to use their own blocks or pieces of cardboard to create unique stacking designs during gameplay. 

As a parent, the best part of this game is that the toys are easily stored and transported in their containers. Though kids will enjoy playing these games with their friends, they will also enjoy playing it by themselves, developing challenges and perfecting their skill.

When the game was first released, there was an online component. However, this game play is no longer supported. While you might not be able to find these toys in the store aisles any longer, you may be able to still buy Bonkazonks on Amazon.com.
