I purchased this game and after 2 days, my girls (ages 4 and 6) officially love it!
It was entertaining to watch them play with Daddy. It is a spin-off of bocce ball, except it is completely laid back and filled with fun. Plus, it can be played inside, which is really nice for long winter months in Ohio.
We know that we were in for a good time when the rules read that the person with the cleanest shoes got to throw the boochie ball!
Each player gets a nerf ball, a plastic ring and a wrist tracker. You get points by being the closest or the second closest to the boochie ball. The boochie ball is 12-sided, and each side has special instructions for bonus points. You track your points with your wrist-tracker, which gives you special instructions on how to throw the ball. My youngest daughter loves the one where you have to make a sound effect before you throw the ball. My older daughter got a kick out of having to throw the ball while laying on her back.
The score only goes to 11, so the games are pretty quick, which makes it great for kids.
The only problem we have had is that one of the balls started coming apart where it had been filled. I stitched it up and it's as good as new!
Overall, we think it's a great game for the whole family.
