When Addict A Ball arrived at our door I knew it’d have us all fascinated, frustrated and intrigued for hours, and it hasn’t disappointed. With the name Addict, it certainly lives up to this and all the family have tried for hours to complete and although we can get further all the time, the end still defies us.
The game is enclosed within a giant plastic ball and consists of a maze which goes every way imaginable. There is a small silver ball which you have to get from one end to the other. The maze is marked with numbers along the way which you have to follow and it guides you through. There are three starting points, so if you keep getting stuck at a certain point, you don’t have to go right back to the beginning, you can step in at the second or third starting points.
To get through involves a lot of twisting and turning to balance the ball along it’s path and just a slight wobble can make the ball fall off of it’s track. The game is aimed at all ages and both my 8yr old daughter as well as us adults have all spent much time playing with this. It’s one of those things where you are determined to get further than the last person and the challenge keeps you motivated to keep trying and trying again until you succeed.
The plastic around the ball has a slight flexibility to it, to prevent it from cracking if it has dropped so it is very durable. This game has widespread appeal and is something you keep coming back to in order to out do your previous attempt. I imagine this would make a wonderful Christmas present for any family who like a challenge and being suitable for all ages means this is a very versatile gift!
