Assemble the parts to create a clicking pie thrower. The “pie” is either the included sponge, wetted, or whipped or shaving cream. We prefer whipped cream. It’s tastier and doesn’t burn the eyes.
Box includes clicking pie thrower, throwing arm, pair of handles, chin rest, splash guard, spinner, and sponge.
Players take turn clicking the pie thrower according to what number they spun on the dial. Each player who gets through all their clicks for that turn receives one point. Getting pied means zero points for that turn. The first player to reach 25 points wins.
The sheer popularity of this game speaks to its ability to entertain. It works well with those who like slapstick humor, surprises, and fast paced games.
We’d like to clear up some confusion about the throwing arm. It is not defective. The curved part is meant to face the person at the pie clicker. The hollowed out part does indeed face away from the person. The reason being that the curved part of the hands acts as a surface for the whipped cream to rest on. If you were to turn to hand around, and fill the hollow part with whipped cream, you would have to scrape it out between each turn, wasting a whole lot of delicious dairy product in the process. Additionally, the hollow side wouldn’t be as good at throwing the pile of goodness, as it would be more likely to just cradle it, keeping it all for itself.
The splash guard (the part that looks like a face) isn’t super durable and can get bent and warped fairly easily, so keep that in mind when packing the toy for storage. It does wipe down pretty well, so long as it doesn’t get water logged and has time to dry once put away.
The throwing arm isn’t all that strong and doesn’t hurt when it smacks a player in the face. It generally ends up tossing the piled up whipped cream without ever really making direct facial contact.
The included sponge is meant to serve as a stand-in for a pie, but we think using whipped cream is just so much more fun. We’ve heard of people using shaving cream, but use caution as shaving cream can really burn the eyes.
There have been a number of counterfeits being made, so we’ve come up with a list of some things to check for authenticity.
--The toy is called Pie Face, but some counterfeits have the word “Cream” and “Game” printed on the title.
--Box should say “Whipped Cream Not Included” instead of “Squirty Cream Not Included.”
--Check for either the Hasbro logo on the bottom right corner of the box, or the Rocket Games logo on the upper left. Hasbro bought the licensing rights from Rocket Games in 2015, so the logo might be different depending on when the game was purchased.
- Wipe down after use, especially if using whipped cream to keep it from going sour
