Toss the linked balls onto the goal rack for 1, 2, or 3 points... or even 5 points if it bounces on the ground first. Family fun that sets up in a snap.
Comes with two sets of balls for 2 players or teams. Add additional sets for more players.
Bring the game indoors with soft balls (sold separately).
While I did not purchase this from Funagain (as it wasn't offered here when I purchased), I have this exact set and it is very sturdy, though lightweight, and lots of fun. Everyone from ages 5 and up can play (with distance handicap for the younger ones). Every time I pull this one out, people are intrigued right away and always ask where to get their own.
The gameplay is simple to learn and understand, and challenging enough and slightly random enough for an even keel with any combination of teams.
This is the perfect game to take along on picnics, camping, BBQs or any other outdoor gathering. There are indoor balls as well, but I've not tried them. Everything fits well inside the included cardboard box. I'm sure the box won't last forever, but I've taken it many places and it still holds up very well.
My rating of 4.5 stars is due to the price. It's a little on the high side for what you get. It IS quality components and everything fits together nicely. I've set up and torn mine down many times and it still works like new, but it is just PVC pipe and some golf balls on a string. I've had friends try to recreate my set using plastic pipe and connectors and while it's close, it's not quite the same. I recommend buying a pre-made set like this, but the price point is a bit steep.
All of that said, I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes outdoor games.
