This nostalgic wooden game first became popular in the USA in the 1940's and has been engaging game lovers ever since. Manipulate the metal rods to project the metal ball up the slope towards you to drop it into Pluto. Open the rods too much, and the ball will drop too soon into Mercury, Earth, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn earning the player less points. It's an incredibly addictive 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 made of solid Malaysian Oak wood in its natural color with a glossy finish. Game board is screen printed. The planet wells are lined with felt for softer landings. Some assembly is required.
