Water Works is a great game for the whole family. The object of Water Works is to lay down a series of pipe cards in order to create a leak-free pipeline before your opponent does the same. You can hinder your opponents' progress by sabotaging their pipes with leaks or caps, and you must fix any leaks they "spring" on you. It is not an extremely complex game, but it is a lot of fun. Although though the stated age recommendation is 8 to adult, my five-year old beat me with no problem the first time we played. This version comes with a bathtub-shaped discard tray and small metal wrenches you may use to fix leaky pipes. Much nicer than the version I remember as a child.

This set has the metal wrenches and the plastic discard tub we had in the set I grew up with. My mother, sister and I have all bought sets since finding this again and have gotten lots of friends and family hooked on the game. A maximum of four players can play at a time, but if we have more around the table, we'll just play in four teams. It's a good game for adults and kids to play together as, once they know the rules, it's an even competition.

This is a good game for kids learning to play games. There is not any reading involved, but taking turns and following directions are required. It requires some spacial planning skills and very very simple concepts of plumbing. Fun for kids, Moms and Dads.

I remember loving this game as a kid, and so did my cousins. We sat down to play it as adults and were very frustrated with the poorly written instructions. It took us about 40 minutes to read and then interpret the rules of the game. After that, it was a fun and relatively quick game (good for people with short attention spans). This game requires a big table to play on. The directions of pipes on the cards challenge players to plan their pipe route. In order to win, there has to be a specific flow. Young children may find the spatial element of this game to be frustrating.

If I wouldn't have played it, I never would have believed how fun this game is. Both my step sons are addicted game console guys, so that when they come to stay with us its a real workout to get them to do anything but just that. This game is one that they will ask about playing and we can involve the whole family. They have been playing this since age 6 and even my older children, 21 and 24, like this game. It is challenging but not so much that it allows players of all ages to play it.

I highly recommend this game!

Waterworks will be the most fun for grown-ups who remember playing it as a kid. We played very competitively and actually ran out of cards before we finished the game. Kids can play because the rules are simple and they may enjoy springing leaks on the other players. The more leaks that you play, the longer the game is, as each player has to fix their leaks. If you play conservatively, the game can be over very quickly.

Although this game was popular before I was born (in 1979), I played this with my sister when we were growing up and always loved it. The original that my parents owned disappeared over time so I bought this to play with my 7 year-old son. Maybe my son will play this with his kids one day!

Just as I recall it from the 1970's with the lovely little metal wrenches and hilarious bathtub (with drain!) card holder. This is a splendid strategy game for family play.
