Advantages: A fun game that anyone can play
Disadvantages: Method of rolling the dice
I bought Frustration for my Daughter as it was a game that I had when I was younger.
It is surprising how things have changed since the original game was made. The newer modern version no longer has the push down method of rolling the dice that it once had. So you do not get that metal click that you used to hear when someone took their turn. Instead, each player has a coordinating colour lever that you press instead. Personally I did not know what was wrong with the old method and thoroughly enjoyed pressing the middle down to play. Plus you have to keep taking the levers off in order for the game to fit back in the box.
Instead of plain pieces that you move around the board, you have little genies in colours coordinating with the colour of your team. They are blue, yellow, green and orange.
There is one added change to this game - there is a gold genie that you have in the centre of the board. If you spin and it is the green genie, you can put it in your place. That way you are protected if the other players try to get you out. However, if you land on the red genie or if someone else gets the green genie it gets put back in the middle or given to another player.
I still enjoy this game even though it has changed somewhat. I will be keen to see whether my Daughter will sit through a whole game when she is a little older as at the age of 3 - she gets a little bored.
