OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Introducing DROP IT! A new game from THAMES & KOSMOS for 2 to 4 players.  A game of strategy that is designed for ages 8 and up. Choose a shape and drop it in the drop zone. This colorful, inventive family game is not as easy as one might think at first. Once colors have been chosen by players, one at a time each drop a shape into the vertical game board's drop zone. Players earn points for the highest level that their shape reaches when it lands and extra points for touching bonus circles. Sound simple? It's not. The shape you dropped is not allowed to touch matching shapes or colors after it lands. The guide panels on the sides and bottom of the drop zone dictate where you should aim but if you break a landing rule, you will go away empty-handed. The winner is the player or team with the most points at the end. The game comes with dropzone, base, scoring board, 4 colored score markers, 4 side marker guides and 2 base marker guides, and 36 game shapes in 4 colors. There are also joker and point markers for each of the 4 colors to be used in cases of scoring and redemption. Drop It can be played with individuals or with teams. Instructions include additional versions for easier or more challenging ways to play.
