1) I've seen a lot of complaints about the durability of this game. My six year old son and I have played numerous games and have had no issues with the durability of the pieces. All of the pieces are made of plastic, but by todays standards, they're of decent quality and fit together and come apart easily.
2) A lot of people have also complained that the game pieces don't fit together well or fit too loosely. Part of the strategy of this game is using the weight of the pieces to hold the pieces together. Another part of the strategy is learning how and where to build so that the weight of a new piece doesn't cause old pieces to shift and fall off or bring the game down. While my son struggled with this the first few games, he quickly caught on and now loves the game and often plays on his own to see how long he can build the arms.
3) A lot of people also complain that the game is "too easy" to win. While I do wish that they had included about 10-15 more pieces (really, how expensive could that have been to do?), there is no "winning" the game. If you manage to get all of the pieces in place, than the rules state that the next step is to remove one piece from either of the two shortest arms and place it on one of the other arms. By doing this, it really is only a matter of time until someone loses, and it's another depth to the playability of the game.Read more ›
- It is an interesting concept in that you get to build potentially different designs
- Magnets are involved (it acts as the 'adhesive' that drops all the pieces when under too much weight posturing on any given side), those are always entertaining to the children
- The pieces are colorful
- The base is fairly well-made despite being a simple plastic construction
- The pieces that attach to each other to develop the designs do not connect poorly, in that the connectors are too wide. More often than not you will find that the pieces will fall apart just after a few turns.
- Due to the poor connectors on the pieces, if there is any length whatsoever (i.e. 3 linkages or more), the line will be highly susceptible to swaying, and oftentimes it will sway onto a piece of the base structure and rest upon, which is against the game's rules.
- Generally speaking, it fails to hold the attention of the young, and frustrates the old as the pieces keep falling off due to the poor plastic connector build rather than the 'fun way' of having the magnet dropping.
- This game is a shining example of poor execution of a concept that may have otherwise resulted in a great family game.
- This has been one of the poorest games made by Parker Brothers, hands down. It is not a functioning game by any standard, and as such should not even be released in its current form.
- I personally could not recommend this game to any other individual, not even as a giveaway.
Everybody knows Jenga, a classic, simple and exciting game that uses rectangular blocks of wood or plastic. Jenga is a great game, but this game that carries its name is a black sheep in the family.
