What It Is
It might look funny to say, but it's a lot of fun to play. It's Gnip Gnop, which is “ping pong” backwards! The object of this game is to be the first player to get all of your balls into the holes to win the round. The best of five rounds wins. To start playing this two-person game, each player picks a ball color (pink or orange) and places one ball in each of their four chutes. Then, at the same time, players smash their ejector buttons to launch their balls at the holes. If a ball goes through a hole, it will roll down the chute on the side of the game base. The first player to get all four of her balls through the holes wins the round and receives one point. Keep track of your points using the scorekeeper on the side of the game base.
Is It Fun?
This is a classic game, literally. Parents and grandparents might remember playing this when they were kids. And now it's back to test the reflexes, skill, and aim of today's kids. It's easy to learn how to play this fast-paced game, but it's going to be challenging to launch your balls through the holes. And that's all part of the fun! It's a satisfying challenge to get the balls through the holes, and kids will like slamming down on the buttons to launch the balls, especially because doing so makes quite a loud noise. This is a game that you can play over and over and over again, and you'll definitely want to, too.
