Gogos are cute game pieces that you can collect, trade, and use with a variety of games. Gogos are sold in packs of three - three Gogos and three Gogo stickers. You can buy a sticker book that includes all of the name of each Gogo as well as rules for playing different games.
Most games involve rolling/tossing the Gogo and then scoring points by looking at how the Gogo landed. Each Gogo has a different scoring system - so the sticker book comes in handy if playing by these rules.
Crazy Bones have been around for years but have recently seen a revival in availability. Crazy Bones are based on an ancient Greece children's game called Astragals. You can play the game suggested to play with these pieces or make up your own.
Several specialty sets of Crazy Bones have been released outside of the United States like Pokemon and Marvel. The current Gogos for sale in the United States are sold by Magic Box, Int.
Each Gogo comes in several colors and some even have a special one that is painted with more details. These rare Gogos are sought after by collectors and for the casual gamer can be a great addition to their game pieces.
Also because of the size of Crazy Bones, they can be used as replacement game pieces for many board games that use pawns or other figures to mark player's spot on the game board.
Gogos make a fun collectible for game enthusiasts since there are several games you can play with Crazy Bones. The plastic game pieces do not take up much room and can be stored without taking up much space. The Crazy Bones also make excellent replacement pawns for board games like Monopoly and Sorry.
