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.Read more ›
My daughter at 4 - LOVED and understood the concept. But had a hard time aiming the rings. I can't say it was her age, however...because I had a hard time, too!
But, none-the-less, I can see the value. There's a point-counting aspect, aiming aspect, dexterity and just overall fun and excitement. Very nice game!

Simple game but challenging enough to make it fun. The best thing about it is that an older person can play with a younger one and still have to work at it.Published 6 months ago by Mary
Big Hit at a 3 yr old birthday party. Ages from 3-12 enjoyed it. It's a short thrill but when you have a theme and need a game that a 3 yr old can figure out... Read morePublished 16 months ago by M. J. Vickers
Fun for the whole family. "Rings" or lifesavers as the game officially calls them flying everywhere. Read morePublished on February 4, 2014 by busymomPA
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!Published on August 20, 2013 by Amazon Customer
Cute game. Bought this for my 7 year old niece and her friends to play with on a trip. They didn't really settle into the game but enjoyed flipping the flamingos.Published on March 23, 2013 by mathteacher
