    4.0 out of 5 stars Manic fun 30 Dec 2009

    Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    Our two children (6 & 8), and their cousins, love this game. When the penguin gets going, he throws out twelve tiles at a time, in a circle, and then someone calls out the category to find ('toes') illustrated on the tile, indicated by the coloured light on the penguin's head. He will change the category colour a few times, before repeating the tile-flinging. This repeats until all the tiles are used up, or the time runs out (indicated by a loud burp from the penguin). The winner is the one with the most tiles collected.

    I'd advise playing the game on the floor - the penguin flips the tiles a surprisingly long way, and they're bound to fly off a smooth table. Plus, when the action gets rather frenetic, there's a distinct possibility of someone small lunging for a tile on the edge of the table, and missing... You are given more tiles than you need for a game, which is good for the variety, but also because cards have a tendency to disappear, being flung with unerring accuracy through tiny cracks under skirting boards etc, never to be seen again.

    The penguins seems pretty solid. The tiles jam occasionally, and with the expected wear-and-tear on the tiles as they are grabbed by small hands, the problem will probably get worse as the game gets older & the tiles get more bent and dog-eared. However, a jam is usually solved by a gentle pull on the tile, and it doesn't seem to effect anyone's enjoyment.

    5.0 out of 5 stars flippin' marvellous! 7 Jan 2010

    We bought this for our 7 year old son - he had played a slightly different version at one of his friends and told us about it. It is very simple to set up and play but I would take note of the advice to play on a carpet or put a cloth on a table as the flipper is fairly powerful (cards all over the place on the first occasion!). The game itself is fast and furious and a hit with all the family, including grandparents. There are small educational points to be made but its mainly just old fashioned fun.

    This is a fun game, and adds to the enjoyment of the original game. All the family love it, although firing the cards across a wooden floor means that they can slide under the furniture if you're not careful!
