Once you set the timer, it's a heart thumping race against time to take your spin spike and transfer your spinning plate on and off of all 3 spikes and returning it to the base. It sounded so simple when I first read the instructions, but boy was I wrong! Once you get the technique right, it does get easier :-)
After a few games , It does get a little tedious so it's good to shake things up a bit and make it more complicated. Maybe try putting a spike on a much higher level or in hard to reach areas? Its a great game, but does need a certain amount of imagination to stop it from becoming boring. Overall, we both love this game and my daughter still beats me hands down every time!
