This retro tabletop game, reincarnated from the early 1970s, is making a comeback to a new generation. A sort of table tennis with a twist, Gnip Gnop has a plastic court that is a bit flimsy but requires much less room than a ping-pong table. The rules of play are simple: Each player starts with six balls. Players must smash the three buttons in front of them to launch balls through the three hoops onto the other side of the court. The object of the game is to get all six balls on the opponent’s court. The button smashing is a great way to get out frustrations at the end of a hectic day. Beyond that, there’s little more to the game and, it’s uncertain whether this classic can compete with the video game offerings of the new millennium. It’s possible that this may appeal more to 70s-era parents who are nostalgic for reminders of their youth. --Cristina Vaamonde

My boys (ages 4 and 5 1/2 got this for Christmas last year. It really is a lot of fun, but the game constantly falls apart with regular play. It ended up being thrown out this spring as the balls were dented and lost and we couldn't deal with snapping it together anymore. Not worth the cost unfortunately.

I remember this game from my youth, and am delighted that my son and I can play it together without one of us consistently winning (I go a little slower at times to give him a chance, but other times he beats me without "help"). A little noisy and not as sturdy as I recall, but we can play several games without him tiring of it. It's a good value considering the length of our sessions with it.

This great game from my childhood prompted me to seek one out for my own rambuncious kids. In searching Ebay for vintage games I noticed the company was again manufacturing "new" games and so I decided to purchase a brand-new "clean" game. However, my new purchase seems to lack stability as compared to the original. Most matches require continual repositioning of the cover/lid to keep the game from coming apart. The buttons also don't seem to have the oomph of the original. There is definately a difference in an "original" Gnip Gnop game and a new one. If I were in the market again, I would opt for an original rather than a new model, newer is not always better.

I bought this for me and my 9 year old daughter to play. I figured I loved it when I was growing up I thought she'd like it too. Well, since it arrived 2 days ago she asks me about every 5 minutes if we can play the game. I still enjoy it too. Great game.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Chris Crawford on January 3, 2009
Remembering Gnip Gnop from my childhood, I bought one for my kids this year. The game play is the same, but the game is smaller and the constuction quality is completely insufficient for a game that has kids pounding paddles as quickly as they can.

The game falls apart regularly. When it does, the balls can escape the play-field, so of course they get lost. This is a fundamental design problem, not something specific to my copy. I would try gluing the whole thing together, but with the pounding the game takes, I doubt the glue would hold.

Avoid this product, or buy with the knowledge that it has a usable lifespan measured in weeks.

Our children had this game when they were younger and I bought each another game for Christmas to share with their families. Children as young as 3 or 4 can join in - and there are no batteries to worry about replacing! You can have fun without the worry of someone getting physically hurt - just hurt feelings when they lose.

My husband and I so enjoyed this game as children that we decided to purchase one for our daughters, ages 10 and 7. It is definitely not as durable as the original. It's very easy to put together yet it can come apart during normal play. To the point we have to put pieces back in place between games or either hold pieces in place during actual play. A little frustrating; however, my daughter absolutely love the game. I guess since they never played the original version from the 70s they have nothing to compare it to. I would still purchase it again but would not it expect it to last for the long haul.

This is an old game from the 70s or so, but has an action oriented appeal even for a five year old girl. Unlike so many electronic games this one needs no batteries nor much in the way of instructions. Play is almost universally understood.

As such this game has withstood the test of time, and is fun for this age group and for older siblings and parents to play along as well.
