Mindware Tightrope Game
An unusual marble game that players are sure to “flip” over...more than once! Players take turns setting up the pegs and stretchy bands that creates a web suspended over the playing board. (You soon learn that you want to create "tracks" that will convey the marbles.) Now let the fun begin! Players take turns placing their color-coded marbles on the web. The object is to be first to place all your marbles. But it’s not easy! When your marble falls it often takes others with it and you’ll have to get rid of them, as well as the ones you had at the start. The playing board has a clever design— a trough to capture the marbles that fall, so no one (especially little sisters and brothers) have to run around during the game to retrieve the playing pieces. Marked 6 and up, but we think it’s going to be tough for most 6s and 7s. It's more like a choice for 8s and up. Designed for 2-4 players.
