This game is a blast. Another top-notch "cabin" game that anyone can play, all ages. My nine year old daughter kicked my butt! I have the '76 version with the happy people on the cover, and we looked just like that when we played, except for the turtleneck sweater.

Got a wooden version of this game, the middle balls are on strings not sticks, and you start with 12 balls to place (this is fine with a 2 player, but would need to decrease as more play, or there is a ring that draws the strings in making the middle group more compact so the gameplay is easier). Even though I am clumsy and my wife TROUNCED me, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and with the ease of setup and speed of play (not to mention the wood looking much prettier) this will be a firm contender for a wind up/down or filler game.

Not a bad dexterity game for what I paid for it (20p). Balance the balls on the other balls. If any balls fall, they go into your hand. First to get rid of all wins. The available space fills up quickly so turns soon become tricky.

Played a couple of times then donated to school breakfast club.

We stand in the Atlantic, we become panoramic. The stars are caught in our hair, the stars are on our fingers, a veil of diamond dust.

Enjoyable dex game, but with four players sometimes punishes the same player over and over. Also, start with five or six balls or it takes too long.

Not terrible, but not great either. Would be better perhaps if one of my white ball pairs wasn't missing its stick, giving us a limited space to place the blue balls.

Its kind of an interminable dexterity game from the 70s. I'm not sure its really worth the effort, except that you can make lots of "ball" jokes while you play.

While it doesn't work entirely correctly, it is a pretty neat concept.

Good, simple dexterity game for younger kids. I've had my copy since my childhood.

The best thing about this game is the number of ball jokes you can make during play: "Your balls just dropped"; "Wait a minute, let me grab my ball"; "You have to be really delicate handling these balls"; etc. Needless to say, this is not a good sign.

1 play: 4 players

When I was a kid, this game was the bomb. Now that I'm older, it's a bust. How and why we played this as much as we did as kids is beyond me. OH,... childhood youth, how easly we were amused back then. Now in the era of video games, Games like these don't stand a chance.
