The vuvuzela has taken a lot of heat lately. Some people think it's annoying, but I'm a big fan.

In case you don't know, the vuvuzela is that horn they keep playing at the world cup. Here's the users manual.


Nothing helps you pass the time in a slow-moving, low-scoring sport like an incessant buzzing sound.

But I think the vuvuzela is underused. There are lots of other slow moving, low scoring games that could use a little vuvuzela style spicing up.

Therefore, I'm working on a new Vuvuzela Expansion. The expansion will include one vuvuzela in your choice of colors. Much like the "Big Paws" from Snow Tails, this expansion would be compatible with many different games.

I've listed a few games below, but I'm sure I missed a lot. Please feel free to add any games that you think would be improved by a vuvuzela expansion.


I realy should give haslo credit for bringing that vuvuzela picture to my attention.

If the chess clock is not enough to pressure your opponent into making a bad move, imagine his reaction to the constant buzzing of a Vuvuzela.

Even if it doesn't force an early resignation, it might convince him to go for a quick win, opening him up to an easy counter-strike.

We could breathe new life into this old classic by playing the songs on the versatile vuvuzela.

With the expansion, you can try to name that song in one note.

You can drown out your opponents boasts about their wood and what they would do if they only had a sheep.

In addition, you could eliminate all the trading, transforming it into the multiplayer solitaire that we expect from our Euro Games.

Exchange the foam guns for vuvuzelas. Proceed as ususal. Then, every player has to decide himself whether one vuvuzela, a few inches away, pointed at his head, possibly ready to be sounded, is enough threat to chicken out or not...

If you use the Vuvuzela expansion constantly as a party I don't think their will be a lot of monsters left in the dungeons anymore. So just treasure to get (ow and still watch out for the traps).

A new way to eliminate some of the game's notorious fiddliness, and add some realism in the process! Every time an investigator loses a sanity, simulate the effect in real life by blaring the vuvuzela in the player's ear!

And every time an investigator loses a stamina, have his/her player be the one to wield the vuvuzela - the beating that follows should nicely illustrate what just happened in the game...

Carcassonne, the king of expansions, must have a Vuvuzela expansion too! Completists are bound to buy the Vuvuzela expansion. Six Vuvuzelas in the appropriate Meeple colors are included. Instead of giving advice to your opponents/friends on how to place the tile, you can now voice your dislike by sounding the Vuvuzela. New tiles will be included with the Vuvuzela icon included. If you complete a feature that has a Vuvuzela in it, you must take a Vuvuzela from an opponent of your choice. End of game scoring will award 10 points to the player with the fewest Vuvuzelas.

The vulvuzela expansion fixes the shortcomings of a game about the world cup that was released prior to the event. It provides total immersion in the theme.

It also brings a new card:

With the expansion if you bingo with VUVUZELA you do not only get 50 extra points but also get to blow the vuvuzela in you opponents face.

The Travel scrabble expansion comes with a tiny, but amplified, vuvuzela.
