  • This sounds like it would be fun to play on sunny days when you don’t feel like going out anywhere. So simple to make too

  • Passing this on to my youngest son – maybe he’ll get his kids outside to enjoy some sunshine and he’ll enjoy the respite too. It’s a great game – shouldn’t go out of fashion.

  • My son is too old for this now, but it’s so clever. I know a friend who will love this for his daughter.

  • I am sure if you asked at some building sites you could get some off-cuts, cut them to length and sand them until smooth, then stain them. Often some rooms have timber floors. You may be able to get off-cuts from a timber yard instead of buying one long length.

  • Yes, we play domino sometimes. We further love “The Game of Life”. Really entertaining!
    Lately I bought a new game called “The Telepaths”. Very nice too!
