Planning for the younger ones on family game day, I purchased this game for my husband and I to try-out for the children. As it turned out, my husband and I had a wonderfully fun time returning to simpler fun playing Kerplunk for hours. We sat outdoors on at the patio table on the deck and played Kerplunk as we carefully pulled out those little sticks and tried not to make marbles fall. The kids will certainly have a great time giving this game their full attention time and again! If you want to work to rediscover the inner-child within the adult with simple means, then order Kerplunk and some other children's games such as Pick-up-Sticks, Monkey's in a Barrel, and UNO, to enjoy hours of laughter and fun. Family Game Day fun, all electronics get turned off and set aside for good food, laughter, board and lawn games; as well as Billiards and Darts!

I bought this game for my grand daughter for Christmas. I remembered playing it as a kid. We had a fantastic time playing it. I love that it also teachs her about stradegy and planning her moves ahead of time. I like that she is learning life lessons and doesn't even know it. Thank you for a quality product at a great price.
Fun game that's easy to play for younger kids
I remember this game from when I was a kid, and it's still just as entertaining for my own kids! It's pretty straightforward, put the sticks in and try to keep the marbles from falling when you pull them out. It's very easy to set up and play, and my 5 and 7 year olds had no problems playing the game by themselves without any help understanding the instructions. The main downside, especially compared to the "old geezer" version is that the sticks are very thin and therefore they can be a little hard for the kids to get them in, they're not so good at holding up the marbles and unfortunately they're also easily breakable. The box is also not very strong and I had to get a zip-lock to put the pieces in. That said, it's still a good value for the amount of fun they've been getting out of it.

My son and I loved this game, he got it for Christmas and was thrilled to play it. I admit the quality of the game could be improved. The price needs to be dropped for this game, overpriced in my opinion. When you try to turn the chamber during your turn, the marbles fall unfortunately even without you pulling a stick. The closer you get to the end it becomes sensitive & imperative not to move it at all so it needs to be designed better. The sticks bent and some broke although we were only putting them in the holes to set up the game. My son had a blast regardless of the cheap quality of construction. However, it was still an amazing game and I will recommend it to our friends and family. It is a great game to help kids think & be strategic, it also brings families together to the table for fun!
Family fun with Ker Plunk!
Ker Plunk is a fun and exciting game to play. Set up was super easy and the game play instructions are straight forward. My 5 year old really enjoyed the game, but had some difficulty with pushing the sticks in the tube holes and needed assistance with twisting the tube after her turn. We had a great time playing with our family. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Not made like it used to be
The sticks that go through the holes are very flimsy and just slide out of the holes as soon as you put them in. Takes a long time to get them all put through, spend double the amount of time working on the game prep than actually playing. It took a lot of the fun out of the game for us.
