Enjoyed it until it got too stiff to play in 48 hours
on 24 December 2015
Bought this game for a family member for Christmas. They opened the present a few days ago (celebrated early due to family visiting that live far away) and everyone really enjoyed playing it.
We did notice that when you turned the game to either side, for the end columns, it was a little stiff.
Within 48 hours this stiffness has gotten to the point where an 11 year old was not able to play the game. The stiffness also interfered with the ability to push the ends in to place the blocks...now when you 'bop it' the console is so stiff that the ends don't pop back out, you have to forcefully pull them back out with both hands.
Family members who have played quite a bit are commenting on soreness in their hands / wrists because of the force they are having to use to turn and push the sides in, and as I said the younger kids can't use it anymore.
I am disgusted with how quickly this product has broken. What a disappointing Christmas gift...
