Dead Man's Drop Disk Game
Cheaply manufacured and not worth the cost of shipping; let alone the cost of the item.
Purchased for a game to bring to a school Halloween party and annoyed with the results. The coins you use to drop are too big for the gaps between the pegs. Often they stop during their travels getting stuck. Also, the coins when they do travels sometimes bounced off the board. It would have been nice to have a flexi-covering which was removable for when the coins stick.

I was super excited to get this game for my own children and the ones in my classroom. I played it a few times, and one of those times, I realized that the pegs on the whole right side were too close to the ones next to them, and the discs would not pass through! Luckily, my husband is handy (I didn't want to return it because I needed it for a class carnival) and he moved all the pegs over for me. I re-painted it and it's as awesome as I hoped it would be now!

I didn't expect this to be as nice as it is. It is nearly all wood and the graphics are very well done. The little wooden "coins" feel nice in hand and kids LOVE this game. They wanna play it over and over. It was bought for a b-day party, but has become a favorite toy in our house. The kid make up weird rules like, "jump one one leg if you get less than ten points" and they like to pretend to run a gambling den for pirates, lol.My husband and I love the plinking noise b/c we know our son and his friends are busy w/o being in front of a screen. So worth the money. The only downside is that I wish it had a storage bag with it to keep it looking nice and so the pegs don't catch on anything while in storage.
