PlaSmart's Drop Shot Game has our boys competing
at least two or three times a day to see who makes their ball to the top
first. It has become one of their new favorite games.
Drop Shot is a game of luck and strategy.
The object of Drop Shot is to be the first player to reach the top.
Each player chooses a different colored marble, yellow, red, green
or blue. They begin by rolling the die,usually starting with the youngest
player. The player can move their marble in any direction
according to the number they have rolled. If the player rolls a bar, then
there are little bars they can place throughout the game, to block other
players from getting ahead. If the player rolls the yellow, then there is a
yellow marble that the player can choose to release it in any slot, and as it
randomly rolls down an isle it may knock one or more players back to start.
We love to have our family game nights, so we look for
games that are durable, and will last through some of our boy's rowdiness.
Drop Shot is a keeper, and our boys have even gone to the PlaSmart
web site to add some games to their Christmas lists.
