Balancing Act

It's polite to keep friends hanging in this exciting game of chance and coordination. A sturdy metal base holds shifting stacks of color-coded rods representing up to four players. As the structure grows into a web of anticipation, the name of the game is balance. Every new rod shifts its center of gravity, challenging the next player up to build with a light touch. The first player to successfully prop all of their pieces onto the stack wins! It's not the destination (winning!), but the journey, that makes this gravity-fueled game of building strategy as exciting on the first as the fiftieth play.

Includes wooden base piece, wooden die, and 24 notched rods (in 6 colors) made of steel, rubber and plastic. Made in the USA.
