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.

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!

I expected the game to include the "bathtub" card dispense as shown in the photograph in the advertisement. i enjoyed the game with my grandson while he lived here and wanted to send a copy of it to him in Japan. He will get the game but the advertisement photo was misleading.

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.

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.

Great game. I remember playing it as a kid and played it tonight with my 8 and 10 year olds. I haven't played it with my 5 year old yet but it's simple enough where I think she'll get it. However, the wrenches were not in the box (we substituted with crayons). Also, the box is very tight for the cards and we ripped it trying to put the game away, so I ended up just putting the cards in a ziploc bag. I noticed another seller has a wooden box included with it for the same price. Look for that one instead.

This game is awesome. I've introduced Water Works to friends and family of all ages. Its quirks (like the little metal wrenches and leaky pipe plays on other players) add a dimension of fun not found in any other game. Quick, easy to learn, and no plumbing experience required.

Beware of the leaky T!!

Package arrived in battered box. Looked like it had been opened. Was supposed to include wrenches to play the game, but all wrenches missing. I am handicapped and it is too difficult to return the item. Liked the game when I was younger and wanted to play with grandchildren.
