The header says it all.

I played with my kids who got frustrated and bored immediately, because the dang toy springs shut at the slightest touch, with the pieces going everywhere. Why wasn't this as fun as I remembered it growing up? Then I did a search for vintage (meaning 1970s decade and earlier), and immediately grasped the problem. The new pieces are hollowed out and don't even have a bottom. As a consequence, they are so light, that the spring mechanism shoots them up into the air at the slightest touch. It's nearly impossible to accrue "points" and we spend a heckuva lot of time refilling the spring board with these hard-to-manage, feather-light pieces after almost no one gets any points.

Just find an old version. This new one is total crap. I'm embarrassed I bought it for my kids and two neighbor families, too, for Christmas. Total cr@p.

This was not the game I remember from decades ago. Instead of using wooden pieces it uses light-weight plastic ones instead, which fly in all directions when the rubber-banded springboard releases. This means that a few moves in the springboard results in nearly all of the playing pieces being ejected from the playing surface. Quick, but frustrating games where we spend more time picking up pieces than playing the game. The original game used a metal spring and wooden pieces that were more stable and less apt to go flying at the slightest movement.

In short, I was very disappointed in this new version of the game and will discard it or give it away.

I am sooooooooo disappointed with this game. I got this for my 5 and 7 year old children to play hoping it would be as I remembered it from my childhood. Unfortunately, it is so cheaply made that it is unplayable. Once loaded, the first pull sends all of the pieces flying. We only manages one or two times to get 2 or 3 pulls before it "exploded". At first, I thought it may just require some practice to get the right pull technique down. Nope! Doesn't matter how subtle or gently a piece is removed, the trap springs and sends the plastic flying. We tried this many, many times and finally have given up. I was originally worried that the spring device would be an issue - the loading and staying in place. But it's not that - it's just that the pieces are so insubstantial that they cannot hold the spring at bay. I was hesitant to buy this originally but my memories overrode my good sense. This is not the first cheap game that I have gotten that has disappointed. Should have known!!! The concept/design is ABSOLUTELY awesome but the quality of THIS version of the game makes it impossible to play.

I just processed a return request and am hoping it is approved. Otherwise, this game will have to be thrown away. No sense even donating it. ;0(

It was exactly what I was looking for, my grandson loved it!!! He has played it endlessly since they have been out of school almost an extra week because of the Midwest snowstorm.

My mom purchased this game for my husband as a nostalgic present. We were so disappointed with the quality and look. The cheap plastic board and game pieces are nothing like the original wooden game. Also, it does not work properly. The pieces fly everywhere at the slightest movement, probably because the spring-loaded bar has been replaced by a rubber band system that is too tight. Worst of all, we could not return our board game as it was past the 30 day return policy of a third party seller. So much for getting a jump start on Christmas shopping... I guess when you order a gift, you better open it immediately or you're SOL. Wish I could give it 0 stars as the whole experience was that bad! What a disappointment!!

Not a fan of this version at all. It feels so light and flimsy, the pieces go flyin' and it's quite frustrating.

I ended up finding the original wooden version from eBay and am quite pleased with that one. I'd recommend skipping over this new version.

I remember the old game with wooden pegs and wooden board; this is all lightweight plastic and the pieces go flying with the least movement because they have no weight. Worthless. Each game lasts a minute.
