Ker plunk is a very fun game though sometimes frustrating, aged from about Seven to A - Hundred and Seven the players are from at least One to Six. The games equipment consists of a plastic shoot and a plastic circular oval with holes in it also a collection of marbles and straws.

The game is set up with a shoot at the bottom of it to stand on, an oval with holes in it you need to poke the straws through the holes and drop the marbles onto the straws so that it is therefore relying on the straws.

The idea and aim of the game is to gently take out the straws one by one without any marbles falling down, you then need to keep on keep on taking out the straws until you have taken them all out. The person who has let out the most marbles loses th game.

The scary thing about the game is that you know all the marbles are balanced or are relying on are the straws.
A good tactic is to practice a lot and at the beginning it may help to touch a few straws before you take any out, until you get better at the game.

I like the game because although it is frustrating, in the end when you win you’ll find out it was worth it.
Now you have read this opinion and are getting all excited and want to tell your mum to get it for you, I suggest you go out of the house and immediately buy it (you should find it at all good stores) happy playing!!!!!!!!!!!
