Description

Players take turns rolling the die and using the "rammer hammer" to knock out a plastic brick from the wall that is of the color indicated on the die, and then stack it back on top of the wall. The object of the game is to not be the person that causes the "knockout" brick to fall out of the wall.

Re-themed as a "Bob the Builder" game in 2002.

Rated for kids. Terrible game, but gets points for shipping with a fun toy power hammer.

Nifty pieces in a dexterity game, not much fun other than that.

I just enjoy the aesthetic of this. I have a weakness for these ridiculous kids games with mechanized accessories.

Dutch version "Sloper!" by MB. Quite fun actually, sort of a Jenga with powertools. :) Has my little nephew smiling like mad (and my cat running around with a 'phat' tail.) My own 2 y.o. son will love this as well, I'm about to introduce it to him and see how it goes. It will be 'play' instead 'game' I'm sure. UPDATE: Sadly my cat died. (Of old age, not because of the game, so no worries MB lawyers!)

I've got nieces, nephews, and kids of friends, and they LOVE this game. I seriously want to find additional copies so I can build an enhanced backing board and play a taller version.

Knockout is like playing Jenga with Power Tool jackhammer. Even though it's for kids, Knockout is a nice break between better dexterity games like Jenga. Because stacking is different than Jenga, and you use an electric hammer(!) to remove block, Knockout has just the right amount of novelty to give it lasting interest. That being said, I never had this as a child so my nostalgic feelings for it are slight. You also have to accept that it's a terribly lucky game, with the Rammer Hammer being more novel than requiring dexterity skills.

Simple, silly fun, but fun to be sure. The game, as written, is pretty much guaranteed to end after no more than a dozen turns, but it's quick to stack back up and play again. I enjoy the game more than my rating would suggest, but only for occasional play. Right now, my daughter enjoys building random "towers" with the blocks and then knocking them down.

Battery-driven Jenga minus the tension - loud, ugly, messy.

With a fairly enjoyable jackhammer mechanic, Knockout is the perfect example of a 1990's toy/game hybrid. It's simple and kind of silly, but that's the point.

The gimmick of the jackhammer wears off pretty quick and there is not much game left. Dull.

Salvaged for the parts... which I've yet to find a good use for!

The little battery powered jack hammer is just plain cool.

Kind of like a more simple version of Jenga. Still fun though.

OWN Apr/04. We have "Bob the Builder" version, and the plastic wall won't stay up long enough (tips over) to actually knock out any pieces. Even my 5-year-old hasn't touched it since the week he got it. // OK, played it again with my 5-year-old. It was OK, and part of the game IS to straighten up the wall with the jackhammer if it's leaning (right in the rules). Bonus points for a game containing a power tool!

$1.99 at Goodwill. Worth 10x that based on how much my daughter loves playing it. It's like Jenga for kids, who really enjoy the bright colors and the Rammer Hammer.

Chintzy retheme of Jenga with cheap plastic blocks and a ridiculous mechanized jackhammer-like toy to push the blocks out. It's okay for the toy factor, but it's a real pain to set up, and it takes up a ton of shelf space for what it is. Jenga is a lot better choice, with a better tactile feel.

Neat twist on Jenga. The battery-powered "Rammer Hammer" is a lot of fun to play with. Currently residing at my parents' house where all of the grandkids can enjoy it.

Riotous dexterity game. The ramming tool and pieces are bright and of decent enough quality. On a par with either Villa Paletti or Jenga. Playing with large rowdy groups is a must. * Rating rises by an extra point for every additional player (over 2 players).
