This hand-eye skill game is fun for the entire family!
Standing on opposite sides of the game, players attempt to knock a moving ball on the ramp into a hole by swinging the tethered ball into its path
If the ball is struck, the player wins the points
If the ball is missed, the next player must catch the swinging ball to win a turn
Balanko is such a straightforward invitation to fun that you almost don't need to read the rules. There's a ball on a string. There's another ball that rides a curved track. There are pits of various score values - the center and widest pit being, naturally, both the easiest to get the ball into and of the lowest value. There are sliding scorekeepers to keep track of your achievements.
Major Fun FamilyÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â have given Balanko the coveted "Major Fun Family Game Award" because it is the kind of game that will be as much fun for kids as it will be for adults and probably even more fun for kids and adults together. For similar reasons, it's also getting a Party Games award, even though only two people can play it at a time. And, if that's not enough to interest you, you should know that it is being seriously considered a Keeper.
