Cooome on down!
Okay, there are no doors with cars or washing machines behind them. The next step is actually to drop the Plinko chips into the gameboard. It may not be large enough that you need stairs to get to the top of it, but at 26 inches tall it is big on fun. It’s a colorful board that brings back memories to many and can be assembled quickly and easily. Some may take “premium wooden board” to mean it’s a hefty piece of lumber but in actuality, it’s a thin, durable board that is easy to move around.
Parents will need to install three AAA batteries in it ahead of time for the lights and sounds to dazzle. Players drop their chips into it to activate the noises and colorful display — and to work their way towards victory. The player whose chips land on the highest numbers wins!
Plinko has been a favorite of kids who pretended to be sick in order to stay home and watch TV for years, and this game finally brings it home. It’s a competitive game, but kids can feel like they’re working together as they ask five questions each during the question round. They’re able to take turns but ultimately declare one winner — and that’s priceless.
