Whoops marbles game
Whoops – shooting for the groove.
With a skilful but not too forceful flick of the wrist, players shoot their colourful marbles along the board. The middle lane is the launch ramp where the marbles pick up speed and, after making a U-turn, roll over as many ridges as possible. Up to four players take it in turns to propel one of their marbles along the board. Three scenarios are possible: The marble can a) (as hoped for) stop in one of the grooves in the right or left lane (the further it gets the better), b) remain on the launch ramp or c) get stuck in the groove at the end of the ramp. The large metal ball is the joker – each player is allowed to use it once every game. With the joker, players can knock opponents' marbles out of the way or into the penalty groove, or bring their own marbles further along the board.
Premium board games. From Alfaset of Switzerland.
It is the outstanding workmanship that makes Alfaset's board games so special. The Swiss manufacturer uses mainly native woods such as maple, birch, and beech and is fitting together the individual parts with fascinating precision; all elements are neatly bonded and the surfaces meticulously finished. In short: Alfaset's games are in a class of their own. And they also appeal to both, children and adults! The rules are simple and easy to follow, and success depends on luck rather than on talent. This is why sometimes players are being driven up the wall – but just as quickly back to the board again.
The games are made in the company's five own workshops near Lake Neuchâtel, Switzerland. To a large extent, Alfaset employs people with disabilities who work together with qualified carpenters.
Not suitable for children under 3 years. Choking hazard: contains small parts.
Community games of the first order. From Alfaset from Switzerland
The games from Alfaset convince with their exceptional processing quality. Because the Swiss manufacturer processes mainly domestic woods such as maple, birch and beech uncompromisingly: the accuracy of fit of the individual components is impressive, the elements are neatly glued, the surfaces carefully treated. In short: Alfaset's parlor games clearly stand out from the crowd. The same applies to their ability to inspire both children and adults. One of the reasons for this is that the rules are as simple as they are comprehensible, and success does not depend on talent, but to a large extent on lucky coincidences. This occasionally drives some people up the wall, but just as quickly brings them back to the board.
The games are all manufactured in the company's five workshops near Lake Neuchâtel. There, Alfaset employs mainly people with disabilities who work together with skilled carpenters.
Not suitable for children under 3 years. Risk of suffocation due to small parts that can be swallowed.
