Keepy Uppy: The Game is based on the tried and tested formula of keep-up, and its inspiration is both its biggest strength and hardest challenge. The game undoubtedly has universal and enduring appeal, but does it need any more than a ball and hours of patient practice? The answer lies in Keepy Uppy's winning combination of street-wise style, gadgets and spectacular stunts, all working within rules designed to reward the best combination of hard work and flair. The goal is to beat your opponent in three of five challenges that are all variations on the basic premise of juggling the ball without going outside the circle or using your arm or hands. The challenges range from straightforward to more complicated set pieces and freestyling tricks, one of which involves removing and replacing your shirt, and doing a few press ups in between, all the while keeping the ball trapped still on the back of your neck.
The package includes a ball, a pop-out skill circle (which can be folded down for storage), a counter/timer and a comprehensive guide to the rules, including yellow and red card pages for issuing fouls. You might not become Keepy Uppy King (or Queen) without putting in serious practice time, but it will be great fun trying. --Steve Napleton
