Set-up is easy.

To fling the ring, you aim your lifeboat, slot a ring, bend the ring towards you just exactly as much as you think necessary and then release it.

Ring-O Flamingo, a.k.a. "The Frantic Fling-a-Ring Game," is, as advertised, a game that is at least as much about ring-flinging as it is about being frantic.

Each player gets one of 4 plastic "lifeboats" each of a different color, each containing a set of 12 flat, flexible, plastic, lifesaver-like rings of a matching color. The rings are placed, one at a time, edgewise in a slot in the front of the lifeboat. To fling the ring, you aim your lifeboat, slot a ring, bend the ring towards you just exactly as much as you think necessary and then release it.

Your goal, should you be goal-oriented, is for your ring to land, quoit-like, around any of the 7 plastic flamingos (yes, plastic flamingos), and not around either of the two plastic alligators.

The flamingos and alligators fit into slots in the thick game board. Turned 90-degrees, they stand firmly enough to resist and staunchly deflect any inaccurately flung rings. The board is thick enough to withstand repeated reassembly.

Ringing an alligator is a bad thing to do and makes you lose two points. You get 2 points for each of your rings that is first to ring a flamingo, and one point for each of your subsequent flamingo-ringing ring.

Since everyone plays simultaneously, mastering the "frantic" part of this "Frantic Fling-a-Ring" game is as crucial to success as good aim. Since being the first to ring a particular flamingo gets you twice as many points, the need for speed is clearly established. And, of course, the faster you fling, the less accurate you become. The tension makes the game even more challenging, and instructive.

On the other hand, ring-flinging is so much fun that it almost doesn't matter whether you manage to get a ring around anything.

I gave this as a gift and the mother reported that the kids have been playing it every day! The kids range from ages 4 to 9 so that's a bonus that they can all play together!

This is a fun game for both kids and adults. We laugh out loud every time we play this game, and we find ourselves playing it over and over. Set-up is easy. It has won several awards, including Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, Dr. Toy's Top 100, etc.

I am a nanny/babysitter, and I bring this game with me to many children's houses. It is always a hit, and they always demand that I bring it back next time I come! One 4-year-old who can rarely be persuaded to step away from the TV asked where the "on" button was, and when I explained that it had no "on" button and that he had to make the rings fly himself, he said, in amazement, "You mean it doesn't have batteries?" LOL! You can choose to play a frantic game where everyone flings rings at once, or you can slow things down by taking turns and flinging one at a time. You can keep score by giving 2 points for the first person who rings each flamingo, one point for everyone else, and subtracting points for getting a ring on the crocodile; you can just add up the rings that land on anything; or you can forget about keeping score and just have fun! I have never met a child who didn't enjoy thins game. They also seem to really like helping to clean up by sorting the rings onto the correctly colored boats!

Fun for the whole family. "Rings" or lifesavers as the game officially calls them flying everywhere. Fun game that is easy to play without much instruction for little ones.

Total chaos with just two players as the rings go flying - even worse with four! Like the addition of the alligators and what happens when you knock someone else's ring onto one!

I thought it would be a little easier to get the rings on the flamingos. The fact that it is more difficult, makes it a more fun game to play, though I think winning might be more from luck than skill.

I originally bought this game when I was planning a beach themed party and was trying to find a few indoor games that we could set up inside as an alternative to the outside activities. This is a fun game. My 5 year old enjoys it and usually has as much success as I do. My 3 year old has a hard time flipping the cards onto the flamingos and often gets no points but is happy to try and play along with the rest of the family. It is not a game chosen very often, has little educational value (you could have kids work on basic addition keeping score) but is a quick and fun game.
