According to the promotional wording on the back of the box, this game will allow you to “strike out spare moments of boredom.” I must be missing something. After about two or three times, I think anyone over 6 years old would have had enough of setting up the penguins and knocking them down. Since the game is “not for children under 6 years,” I’m not exactly sure who the target audience would be.

Here’s a link to a toy site that shows Buddy Hackett’s Pendulum Curve Bowl, a table-top bowling game I have owned since the 1970s. I haven’t played it in years, but for reasons I am not quite sure of, I can’t seem to part with it. One thing I am sure of though, is that it is taking up a heckuva lot of space in one corner of the garage.
