Review:
The game board, a farm scene, is painted on the inside of the bottom of the box. The goal of the game is to roll a ball through the legs of six animals that are positioned on the magnetized playing surface. Each player in turn holds the box and tilts it forwards, backwards and sideways to guide the ball between the animals' legs in a sequence determined by random placement of cards showing pictures of the animals. Each time the player succeeds, she must make the sound of that animal. When the 40-second sand timer runs out, the player's turn ends. For each card successfully played, that player's scoring piece, a miniature clothes pin is moved forward one square on the rim of the box. The game is noteworthy for the unique game board, the use of magnets, and the scoring process.
