MB Games originated in Massachusetts in the 1800s and were responsible for many well-known games such as Twister. In 1984 they were taken over by Hasbro who still use MB as one of their brand names. Downfall is a game I remember enjoying playing as a child in the mid-1970s although my Dad always seemed to win. Fast-forward about 30 years and I ended up buying the game for my own children to play, we have the traditional shape board but I have noticed that Hasbro have recently brought out a funky new shaped game however on closer inspection the game-play seems to be exactly the same as on the rectangular shaped frame with the exception that there is an alternative ...

Downfall, is another board game which reminds me of my childhood. I spent many happy times competing against family members. In order to see who could get their small counters through the circular cogs first. So I had no qualms in buying this game for my daughter for Christmas a couple of years ago. Infact, I was eager and excited to recreate the wonderful experiences this game had brought for me. However, I have to say, this game seemed to be of much better quality years ago. Although the rules of the game remain the same. The actual quality of the game structure is of a much more flimsy and cheap quality. The setting up of the game, seemed to ... Read the complete review

Downfall was one of those games that I grew up with, in the seventies a game of Connect 4, Operation, Junior Scrabble, Monopoly or Downfall was about as exciting as it got in our house. I have to admit to Downfall being my favourite game when I was growing up. Downfall was one of those games that really made you think. Each player had 10 counters of different colours and had to make the counters progress down through 5 cogs with little gaps in to the bottom. The aim was to make your counters progress whilst turning the cog in one direction only and not inadvertently helping your opponent out. I think I played the game so much in my youth and into my ...

Ahh those many rainy days I have spent playing downfall. The board is vertical like Connect 4, and consists of a number of cogs which hold pieces in their grooves. The aim is to turn the cogs and get your pieces to the bottom, however there is a nice twist. Neither player can see where their opponents pieces are as you play on opposite sides of the board. So when you turn a cogs to get your piece to the bottom you may also be helping your opponent in getting their pieces to the bottom. This is fun especially for young children, however older children and even adults can memorise where the grooves are on the opposite side and easily win (not that I would ever ...

There are many games on the market these days that help stem those hours of boredom on a rainy day. However, many of these modern games are electronically and some often require a degree in science and technology to actually play. Luckily there are still some games from the passed that have stood the test of time and have come out fighting, being almost as popular now as they were when they first came out. And what's more, many of those types of games don't need that degree in science and technology, nor even do they need batteries to actually play the game. One game in particular, which has been around since the early 1970 and is still selling as well as ... Read the complete review
