One problem with our set...one piece was deformed and we couldn't do a lot of the projects because of it, but my husband contacted the company and they sent a whole new set of coaster pieces, so we have extras now instead.
Happy with the customer service sending us a new piece for free and some extras, because my son was quite upset when we couldn't use the toy much due to the defective piece until we got the new ones.
When we first opened the box, I was pretty overwhelmed by all the pieces and was immediately concerned that ThinkFun had made the game over-complicated. Track pieces come in several colors (each color indicative of a different degree of vertical drop) and different lengths. The lengths are indicated by small circles imprinted on the plastic that are a little hard to see, but I think that the lengths will become more obvious the more we play (and we could always take a sharpie to the dots to make them more visible if we decide it's a problem). Just a round or two into the game, though, the organization of the pieces began to make sense and my concern about it being over-complicated faded. It took my daughter a few more rounds to understand the implications of the colors and what they indicate about vertical drop, but she caught on within our first few plays too.
Each challenge card tells you how to set-up your board and what pieces you'll need to connect the pieces you start with. Then, the player figures out what to do to complete the roller coaster from there. When they're done, there's a marble in a little plastic housing that they can use to test their track. The first four challenges were very simple, but good for orienting to the game. After that, they got a bit trickier, and we hadn't even ventured past the "easy" ones, so I'm sure there's lots of room to grow with this one.
Another nice bonus with this game is that players can also get creative and design their own coasters without challenge cards.
