    • Great Fun Had by ALL ages

      Hoolee Molee !!! Bam! my sixteen year old said "wow! it sounds like UNO and Jenga all in one game! I changed my mind, can I still play too?" My sisters and their young kids played with my kids all afternoon today. They also took pictures of the package so maybe they will be ordering one soon too. Thank you for giving us a game where teens, pre-teens, and younger kids can all work together to create this "Metal Monster" for fun or as a competitive game. Even the adults enjoyed playing it and "helping" the younger ones.

    • Fun game for the whole family
      Reviewed at http://www.melissaanddoug.com

      This was meant as a gift for 2 kids, but any adult visiting gets hooked on this game! It is challenging but in such a fun way that even our 7 yr. old who is easily frustrated and is under the suggested age range enjoys it greatly! It has been the hit of all the Christmas gifts this year! I plan to buy more for the kids to give as a gift to birthday parties they will be attending in the future.

      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)!

    • Great game
      Reviewed at http://www.melissaanddoug.com

      This is a great fun product! fun for the whole family and works great to develop hand-eye coordination, patience, and understanding of physics. It would be nice if there was some sort of expansion that can be added to it to make the game more expansive and even more fun. We try to think of ways to add more people and make the game longer and more difficult but all we can come up with is buying a second to add people and more pieces. All in all a great product and fun every time you play.
