The game came well packaged and the sturdy box was bigger than I expected. No doubts about what the game was going to be with a picture of it and three excited persons on the front. Inside was a snug fitting polystyrene container.
The game itself is made from strong plastic. The surround has spaces for 16 shot glasses that are numbered with either a red or black band on. Hang on 36 numbers plus zero on the spinner, 16 glasses? Aha, clever! Some have 2 numbers, some 3. Bet that is going to be fun after a few rounds! The spinner unit revolves really well on a spike that has a small amount of lubrication on it so feels just like the real thing. Small pot like a mini film case is in one of the glasses, containing two silver ball bearings, a good idea in case one goes missing party time.
The rules such as they are appear on the box cover, pretty simple, spin the wheel, launch the ball and drink whatever numbered glass it stops on, until only one person can go on. You can even make up your own rules such as girls drink a red on red spins, boys on black if your numbers are small.
This game is an ideal party game especially for a smaller group. You can go through it as fast or slow as you wish. We tried with weird cocktails with the good old ice breaker names such as ‘Sex on the Beach’ etc. Also used as small shots game with brandy, whiskey, vodka, rum and used as a non-alcoholic game for older children with various cordials and fruit juices.
I didn’t put the glasses in the dishwasher so cannot comment on their suitability, but they are small enough to not be a problem hand washing. All in all, a simple concept for a drinking game to help your party go with a swing.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for something easy and enjoyable as a bit of fun.
