Fun little dexterity games -- kind of like Piratenbilliard without the mallet. There's more luck than skill involved if you insist on popping the balls up, but if you gently nudge them then you have much more control.

Fun game that scales well for children. Youngest daughter gets no Crocs. We find the endgame (5th pyramid ball) works best as a sudden death shootout next to pyramid. Great game and so visually enticing nobody can say no to a game.

Piratenbilliards-like, with great graphics & a nifty elevated board. Not very deep, but then again, who needs deep all the time? (And not as much of a kid's game as advertised... it takes a bit of skill to flick the marbles into position.)

An interesting and original dexterity game that will have you running around the floor looking for wooden marbles. It plays quickly and offers an original dexterity challenge. Moreover, it looks very good and should appeal to kids. If this kind of things appeal to you, then this is a good game to get.

This is a totally cool and silly game. It can be fun and frustrating in a good way. Fun times and laughter will be had, with this one. The kids will love it. Trying to get those wooden marbles, through all the obstacles is just plain fun.

This game is well made and looks great when all set up and the net underneath to catch the balls works great. Way to go Haba!!!

Fun game but limited replayability for adults (good laughs whilst it lasted though). Unfair criticism for a childrens game, but hey it's my comments.

Tentative rating based on one play with adults. A surprisingly fun party game that kept people gathered around the table. Not sure how replayable, but it was fun the first time. Looking forward to trying with kids.

Great kids game that adults can enjoy as goofy fun. I know it works better if you take your time and push the marble softly from spot to spot... but where's the fun in that?!?

There's not much to this game, and flicking the balls with any accuracy can be a bit frustrating if you take things too seriously. However, watching and playing this game was a riot. Not a lot of replay value for adults, but probably a decent kids game (more social and less complex than Labyrinth).

It's a decent game, with some fun action, but I feel that as a dexterity game there just isn't enough control. At the end of the day, for as fun as it could be it certainly overstays its welcome. Really, this was quite a disappointment, compared to what it could have been. Ultimately, it is just for kids.

I rate children's games according to how excited I am to play them with appropriately aged children.

As usual, HABA does not skimp on the construction materials of their games. Very impressive looking game when put together.

The idea is cute--floating blocks down the Nile to the site of a pyramid. Along the way you might fall victim to the crocodiles. The winner is the person who gets the most points building the pyramid.

This is is a difficult dexterity game for adults. Maybe kids will do better. I am visiting my older grandson soon and was playing this to see if I wanted to take it. I found it very repetitious, even though there is strategy--but it is strategy that would elude a 6 year old.

I am keeping the game, but not taking it with me--there are better games to take up space in my suitcase. I suspect it is a game that is not going to see a lot of play.

A bit of silly fluff. Looks great set up on the table, though!
