Advantages: Fun, novel, for everyone.
Disadvantages: Balls are easy to lose, takes a while to reuild the game.
I was really pleased to see this game. It's one which you'd think would have been invented a long time ago. It's also refreshing to see games of this sort being made these days where everyone and everything seems to revolve around computers and games consoles.
For children, this game will improve hand-eye co-ordination and manual dexterity, and the coloured balls will be visually stimulating for them. I can also imagine drunken students having a lot of fun with these and I, as an adult, am planning to take them to parties myself. I have not yet had the pleasure of playing this game under the influence but I can imagine I'll spend the next 2 weeks looking for stray balls.
The above is my personal review of the product, and below are some specifications from the manufacturer and from Amazon.
WobBally is a great new, fun game for family and friends for 1-6 players (aged 5 upwards). It consists of a tower of 98 very unstable balls and can be played in three different ways.
All versions start by placing the WobBally tower on a firm hard surface. The tower contains a ball-bearing, self-leveling device (fun in itself!) and once the tower is centered the clear outer cover on the tower can be removed and play can begin. Test your skills and patience by tapping the balls into the tower one by one. But watch out because the player who causes the tower to collapse is out of the game!
How to Play WobBally
Version 1: Each player takes turns to knock any coloured ball from the tower without the tower collapsing. When a player does knock over the tower, everyone shouts "WobBally" and that person is out of the game. Rebuild the tower and then take turns again until one player is left--the winner!
Version 2: Each player throws a numbered dice and the player with highest number goes first. Players then throw the coloured dice to determine what colour ball they have to knock out of the tower, but they can choose a colour from any level. Play continues as with version 1, until one player is victorious!
Version 3: This play combines the numbered and coloured dice. Each player has to throw both, selecting a colour to remove and the level to remove it from. So, for example, the dice may show a blue ball from level 4. If no balls are left of the colour shown on the dice, the player has to knock a ball off the top level level 7! Play continues until one player is left and is crowned the winner.
123 balls including spares
1 coloured dice
1 numbered dice
6 playing sticks
A game surround that ensures no balls are lost
All dice and sticks plus spare balls are very neatly encapsulated inside the centre of the WobBally tower.
My summary: Overall, this game really would appeal to everyone, from children and families to students and adults. It's a lot of fun and easy to get into. It's an understated game which I think is already a classic.
Summary: Ball you need for a good time.
