I had high hopes for this game, being one of the few for the younger age range available, and to encourage family time yet I am dissapointed. It's a lot flimsier and cheaper manufacture than I expected for the name - something I might've expected if anything from a cheaper non branded version. The plastic sticks are bendy and generally too short...we spent most our time trying to get them to stay in the holes during attachment as they kept falling out. Also nothing much happens...by the time you've spent your adult time setting it up to impatient requests to begin the game then you do and it's over pretty quickly, the marbles often falling in large numbers at once down a very short slide, then to be collected by you and transferred into your area for score counting. My neice got a similar monkey version from elc and it was cheaper and no worse, and had more interest to my daughter and neices who liked the animal element. I think this toy is just for parents like myself who remember the name but in reality, as a game, it's not very good or well constructed.

I can't understand how this game made it past the testing phase (i.e., where real kids test it). It falls to bits very easily (none of the parts click together and it relies on the players never knocking or bumping the tower, otherwise the whole thing has a tendency to collapse).

I don't know why MB can't just make a game that comes pre-assembled and works like the older versions did. Kerplunk, when assembled, only takes slightly more volume than when it's packed (except it's tall and slim, rather than wide and flat like the box). So why sell it as a flat-pack?

I'm planning on using glue to join all the bits together - hopefully that will make it less frustrating to play.

As with some of the other reviewers I was disappointed with this. Its construction is flimsy, the sticks don't stay in the holes well, you have to hold the top when sticks are pulled out or it may fall over. I'm sure it's construction used to be much simpler and stronger years ago. It's not user friendly for small children which is a shame as it should be so much fun. Buy something else and have more fun.

I was quite excited by the prospect of KerPlunk as I remembered it from the days when I was a child. I therefore had not opened it as it was for a present. My daughter was excited by the prospect of the game but once we opened it, it appeared quite tacky and not very easy to put together.
The marbles didn't roll down the spiral shoot as they should have and got wedged in - old version was so much better when it just fell! It was only played with on several occasions and has been put on the shelf in the bedroom - it's okay, but a bit disappointing.

Just to add my tuppence worth to the list of disappointed mums and dads who've already said it all. I too loved this game as a kid back in the early 70's. It was one of the 'must have' games of that era, along with Battling Tops, Mousetrap, Etch-A-Sketch...
Now that I'm a dad myself I was really looking forward to playing some of those old classics with my own daughter (aged 6), and I thought dear old Kerplunk would be a good place to start. Easy to set up and get the hang of for a little one, and not too hard for the grown-up to lose at it deliberately, if you know what I mean.
Well, what a disappointment it turned out to be. The biggest problem with this new "improved" version is that it's SOOO fiddly and precarious to set up. Whatever you do, don't cough or sneeze while you're doing it or you'll be chasing straws and marbles all over the floor for the next ten minutes. The straws are too thin and flimsy, and the holes that you have to slide them through are too big in comparison. For every two straws you successfully slide into place, another one falls out. HOURS of fun.. :/
And the whole tower structure is just too rickety. The original version was a solid tube that slotted firmly into the base. This new self-assembly version is comprised of no fewer than six seperate pieces, every one of which adds to the difficulty of construction and is a potential weak link in the structure. Again, why? Whoever designed this should be forced to play it for all eternity with an endless succesion of impatient children..
Why oh why can't they just leave well alone??

The game itself is classic. Insert the myriad of sticks to form a web, place the marbles on top, and in turn remove each individual straw without allowing the marbles to fall through.

However, the flimsy, poorly designed tower assembly doesn't fit together properly and easily falls over throwing the marbles all over the floor and ruining the game. This was a pain for adults playing it, never mind children! The tower also falls over when trying to insert the sticks now too. The tower also doesn't turn on it's axis any more, so any cascading marbles just fall into a narrow canal at the bottom that you have to now manually scoop out and place in your own player sector...so not for the larger handed player!

The robust, quality built game I knew as a kid has now been replaced with a tacky, cost cutting design that will probably result in the game being stuck in the loft as we can't be bothered with it. Actually, ebay might be a better idea!

I'm now off to write a review about how Hasbro has ruined Operation too......
