Advantages: Cheap, easy to use
Disadvantages: Not for the arthritic
A fantastic ice breaker of a game, this has come out at teen parties and awkward family get togethers all over the world throughout the ages.
How much does it cost
The game is available on Amazon for 7.26GBP, I bought my game for 12.99GBP in Hamleys about ten years ago. It has been well worth it as its a game the family can play, kids can play or dinner parties can descend into chaos after a few bottles of wine and the introduction of this silly game!
What is it
The box used to have some unfashionable people twisted up on the mat to show the fun that could be had, nowadays, the figures on the box are cartoons to avoid the box dating very quickly. The box comes with a large spotted floor mat, There is also a spinner which is held my the moderator who spins it to decide who twists where.
How to Play
Basically you can have up to four people on the mat and one person controlling the spinner, the spinner spins the wheel and whichever colour it lands on the player has to put either their hand or foot on that coloured spot, as the game progresses and it becomes difficult to reach across the mat to have hands and feet on the relevant spots, you are compromised by the other 3 players who are twisted in your way also trying to maintain position on spots.
The game itself is incredibly simple but it is great fun, the winner is the person who maintains their position when others fall over.
For me this is a great game, timeless really, i've enjoyed it as a kid with the family, had great fun after a few beers and it is great with the family too, it is physical and ridiculous and after playing this game you really do feel closer to the people you play with, but you have to have a bit of confidence to play as its not for people who are very shy.
Overall this is another 5 out of 5 for me, writing these board game reviews has made me realise just how good they are for families and how sociable they are compared to computer games.
Summary: A classic game of embarrassment and flexibility
