The POOF-Slinky 0C602 Ideal BAS-KET Street Hoops is a classic skill and action game that features a full-court basketball game in a tabletop format, first introduced in 1937 and now with a new look. Each player operates levers that shoot the ball toward the basket. Whether a ball drops into the basket depends upon just how far back the lever was pulled. Practice makes perfect. Drop the ball from a height of about 12-inches onto the center of the floor to begin play. Scoring is the same as in regular basketball and can be changed throughout the game on the backboards. (2) points for court shots and (3) points for shots from the furthest two holes back from the basket. If the ball lands in the free throw hole, that player gets (1) free throw attempt for (1) point. When a player knocks the ball off the court, the opponent gets the ball at the center position. If the ball comes to a stop on the court where a shot cannot be made, drop it on the center court as if the game were beginning. Play can continue until a certain amount of points determine the winner.

The object of the game is to shoot your ball into the hoop by pulling your lever back just the right amount. This game is fast paced and will keep your child entertained for hours as they figure out the perfect speed and angle to score points. If you pull back too hard, your ball will go too far and you won’t score any points. Scoring is the same as in regular basketball and has 2-pointers, 3-pointers and free throws.
