About Bambooga

Bambooga is a human puzzle game where players use color wristbands to bind their hands and feet to one another, leading to a sticky mess of people. The goal of the game is to crawl, walk, scoot or jump one's way towards the finish line, all the while maintaining the connections that are determined by a shake of the Bambooga Shaker.

Bambooga is part of a social entrepreneurship project sponsored by Kids Ark Foundation of Thailand. A portion of the proceeds from the manufacturing of Bambooga will be used by Kids Ark to fund projects that support education and improve standards of living. Additionally, Bambooga is safe and eco-friendly, adhering to "green" manufacturing practices with second-generation cloth material and sustainable bamboo construction. Even the packaging is part of the game.
