Board Game Rank: Not Ranked


This game is basically a race between two players navigating the same maze.

Two large plastic reversible gameboards are used. The boards have a linear maze molded on one side and a circular maze on the other. The boards have "finish" holes at the top that each contain a metal contact. A wire leads from the board to a column that has lights in each players colour.

When the steel marbles used to navigate the maze all come into contact with their respective finish holes the column lights up in that players colour, indicating victory.

I have access to a copy.

I might just throw this away, anybody want it?

Good, some yellowing of cover & a bit of water damage. Unsure if works - needs batteries

Why did I post this game - for completeness? No, I left out most of the kids games .... Guess I can delete it since it's like a solitaire game and anyway doesn't need to be posted up on the game collection list with all of the big boys.

Owned when I was a kid. I may have liked it then.

A manual dexterity challenge... I'm too old for this stuff! Might be fun for a 10-year-old, but it's not my type of game.

Fun dexterity game for kids. A modern version of this classic game has been published. I'll upload a photo of it...

Nice plastic boards and fun dexterity game! I found it kind of easy, but with kids it would be great! When you get the balls in, it even sings a little song!!! :)
