      We had players from 9-71 playing this game. All had a great time. It is very easy to set up and play. The quality is very nice. Even the plastic tube it came in seems like it will last!

    • Classic Game
      Verified Purchase

      Classic game. Purchased as a Christmas gift for my grandson. I’m sure he will love it. Packaged in a clear, plastic tube. The ends of the tube were a little crushed. But, no damage to game. Pieces intact. Would have preferred a box for storage as the tube will not stack nicely with other games, and crushed ends keep it from standing up on end.

      This looks like a fun family game for people with kids in early grade school and older. I bought it for a gift, so I don't know exactly how it works, but it looks like an interesting and challenging game.

      Suspend, with the packaged rules, is fun for a short time. It's interesting to play out your pile of bars with three friends and watch the structure evolve. As adults, the basic rules simply make the game too easy and if you're the first player it's very easy to win. Adding the dice rolls adds a bit of luck to the gameplay, since you might lose your turn by rolling a color you've already played. After about five games of playing by the rules, the game becomes less interesting and fun. In order to make the game more interesting, last longer, and allow for more players - 4 player maximum is very limiting. We changed the game to have a pull pile and to be point based. Place all bars in the center of the table. All players will pull from these bars. Play starts with the first player and proceeds clockwise. Phase 1 - The Build The player rolls the dice to determine the bar color to be placed. If there are no bars of that color, then the turn moves to the next player. If there are bars of that color, then place the bar on the structure. Any bars that fall during that players turn are negative points for each notch in the bar. For example, orange bars are -7 and yellow bars are -2. All bars that fall off the structure are placed back into the pile. The bar being placed by the player must be placed (hand removed) for play to continue to the next player. If the bar being placed also falls, the player receives negatives points for that bar. Phase 2 - Deconstruction The player removes a bar from the structure. Only one bar can be removed per player turn. If more than one bar is removed, then the player receives negative points per notch on each bar removed; this includes bars that fall during removal. If the player successfully removes a single bar, then that player receives positive points equal to the number of notches on the bar. Once all bars have been removed the player with the highest score wins. By changing the rules, the game is opened up to a larger number of players. The game also lasts longer with bigger, more unstable structures. The game also becomes more strategic and is often about how to cause other players to lose points. For even more fun, we added a second set of Suspend. Lastly, as a gaming group we feel that Suspend could benefit from additional pieces. For example, pieces that are bent, pieces that are not symmetrical, etc. would make the game more challenging.

      This was a gift from my mother to my little ones. She was so excited to give it to them as she demoed it at the store and knew they would love it. Upon opening the game, we found it was missing a key piece, necessary to play the game. I called the customer service number on the packaging and was DELIGHTED by my experience. Someone answered my call after two rings, knew the product well, was polite, intelligible and immediately helpful. The piece in question has been shipped and we will be playing with this game in a few short days! Thanks, Melissa and Doug. Keep up the good work!

      I bought this hoping I could give it to my brother an his family, but I almost kept it. This game was engaging and challenging enough for two mechanically-inclined adults, one developmentally challenged pre-teen and a teenager who is usually glued to his video games. I built the set and began dangling the pieces, hoping the kids would ask what I was doing. Once they came over to the table and the game started, they were hooked (and so was I)!

    • Replacement parts would be awesome...
      Reviewed at

      Would love it if we could get replacement parts. The thin plastic container started cracking and crumbling almost immediately and we've since lost the dice and one of the blue "sticks" through the cracks. We have since put the pieces in an old whiskey tin but the lost parts take the shine off the game.
