Don't buy this
December 02, 2006

I bought this because I like games that involve traveling on paths, or linking paths together, plus it was on sale. I was very disappointed when I actually played it. Only two of us were playing, and after about an hour, we quit because neither of us was close to winning, and it was just plain boring. Neither of us could find a way to solidly get ahead of the other. Although there are ways to affect your opponent's pipeline, we just kept going back and forth trying to mess each other up. My friend and I must be either way too smart for this game, or way too stupid. You also need a HUGE amount of room to play this game. Before we decided to quit, we had almost filled up a small dining room table with our cards. I can't imagine how much room we would've needed if we had kept playing. If you have 3 or more people, you should probably play on the floor! I was also bothered by the box insert, in that it has two wells to hold the cards, but no separate place to put the small carboard pipe wrenches. After one play, I gave this to my mom and told her to give it to a church rummage sale. Giving this game even half a star is generous.

Great quality time game ...
August 05, 2004

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.
