Be the first player to complete your own pipeline from valve to spout by connecting enough pipe cards in between. But beware--your opponents are building their own pipelines and will be delighted to ruin your best laid plans by springing leaks on your pipeline. You'll have to repair those pipes or make detours. Call for the plumber! Complete your pipeline first and you win!
I've reached a stage where due to work commitments, both my wife and I can only start winding down after 9pm every weekday night, leaving very little time to undertake any meaningful activity with our son.
So, light games which are fun yet challenging to both our son and us have become very important in our lives.
Of course, as he grows, so do the type of light games we play. Now at 10, Waterworks is STILL one of our favorites along with Mamma Mia, Milles Borne, Upword, etc.
WW is fun, never leaves you out of the game (like when other players sabotage your pipe!), gives you options (like do I spend a turn advancing my pipes or retarding other players progress?), and plays fast.
This game is simple and easy to understand. It was a lot of fun to play with mischevious people but would probably become boring if played with unenthusiactic people. (What game wouldn't?)
If you like to play game, though, and you have 3 or more friends to join in, I think this would be a great game to buy.
This is a very unique and creative game. It's simple enough to be understood by younger children and it's really unlike any other game you've played. It's not another 'roll-the-dice (or spin-the-spinner)-and-move-your-pawn-around-the-path-on-the-gameboard' game, nor is it a another 'suits-or-colors-and-numbers' card game. As an added bonus, it's actually educational, teaching small children about tees and elbows. It probably won't qualify you as a plumber's apprentice, but it's more than most kids know about how the water gets to the faucet.
