Disclosure: I received the above mentioned game free of charge to facilitate my review. My opinion is honest and my own.
This awesome game from PlaSmart Inc. will be a holiday hit this year. Perfect for family game nights or big get-togethers, Drop Shot will have you on the edge of your seat as your race to the top and try to avoid the drop.
The game is recommended for kids ages 6+ mostly because of the small pieces. Little ones might get confused and think that the game pieces are candy, which is very easy to do. They are about the size of gumballs so be careful. We actually play Drop Shot at least once a week as a family before bedtime. My daughter gets a kick out of dropping the bouncy ball down the “plinko-style” shoots to see if they will knock our game pieces down. In fact, each time my husband or I roll the yellow ball on the die, we let Charlee drop the ball for us.
The whole point of the game is simple. Get your ball to the top and survive the ‘last chance drop.’ The game comes with three blue gates to protect your ball, four game pieces and one yellow bouncy ball. The only downside to the game is that it tips over easily. The best way to keep it from tipping over is to lean it against a couch or wall. So far, it’s been working well for us this way.
