To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I played this when I was younger and I loved it, so I bought it for my granddaughter the only thing I would say is that there should be more sticks and more marbles. I am not sure if its because am bigger now and the game seems smaller. or if it actually is smaller, either way we are still having great fun playing with it.
What a shame this is. I remember this game from years ago and it was good fun and of good quality. Unfortunately this new version is as other reviewers have already pointed out of very poor and cheap quality. Shame on you Mattel when I used to see your name on the box I know it used to guarantee good quality but from now on if I see Mattel on the box it will symbolize cheap tat and I will avoid at all cost.
Sticks are poor quality and don't stay in the holes, which is part of the point of this game. You don't want them sliding out before the game starts. At textual of sounding like an old fart, the product was way better in the 80s
A classic game...made as cheaply as possible. Technically it works and you can play, but the sticks are flimsy and sad, and very annoying to use. If you have too much angle, they slid out. Nothing makes games with small children more fun than extra aggravation. I guess the company wanted to save the nickel rather than give its customers a game that would endure...but hey, capitalism, am I right?
Yet another childhood classic ruined by corporate greed.
In general game if good but we were not happy with condition mine come in my mum opened bag the marbles were she cut fingers taking marbles out as there bits of glass where marbles had banged each other this I am not happy with your product
Poor quality. No stars really but can't have that option. Sent it back as there was no bottom section but 2 top sections rendering it useless. Wondering if it may possibly be a cheep imitation. Spoiled our intended Christmas day fun.
