I bought this classic game for my 3 sons to enjoy because I enjoyed it as a kid. The updated version is true to the classic, but a little more sturdy and built out of plastic levers rather than the steel rods I remember as a kid. This game requires some touch to make a basket with just the right pull on the lever. It also requires patience waiting for the ball to roll into a hole for the next shot. It's a nice break from fast paced video games and allows conversation while still developing hand eye coordination. The only problems I had were the court indentions did not seem to let the ball roll freely and equally to all the shooting spots on the court. And the backboards leaned slightly instead of standing straight up.
