This nostalgic wooden game first became popular in the USA in the 1940's and has been engaging people ever since. Manipulate the metal rods to project the metal ball up the slope towards you to drop it into the Fifth Stage. Open the rods too much, and the ball will drop too soon into Earth or another stage, earning the player less points. It's an engaging game that will have the whole family shooting the metal ball down the rails and shooting for the moon! Seems simple enough right? See for yourself why people go crazy for this game. Looks great on coffee tables or an office desk, adding a stylish flare to any space. The board is solid Malaysian Oak wood with a walnut stain and a glossy finish. Game board is screen printed. Some assembly is required.
