Spiderweb Splat Game
I liked this, but you have to use your finger to fling them on the board.

Nice idea but hard to play
Used as one of our games at annual Halloweem party. Board is thin cardboard and did not hold up to wind even though we punched holes in it and tied it down on a pitch back net. Flies are VERY small and got lost in the grass almost immediately. Once it got a little darker, kids couldn't see the flies at all. I suppose if you are using this indoors it would be "okay" but don't expect it to last more than one party. Didn't work as a party game for our outdoor group of kids.

It was very fun and the bugs stay sticky when they are washed!

Made the kids giggle. That's the point!
I read the reviews and was worried. Too sticky flies, lose the sticky, etc etc. The key is to FLING (like a frisbee) the flies! Not toss. They are sticky but they have to be sticky or they wouldn't stay. I used this for a 3rd grade class party with every child having a dozen or so tries. And they stuck the whole time. The flies were sticky at first, but I just showed them how to do it and they got it quick. Hold the fly by the wing or antenna and fling it. Worked like a charm. The more they were used the less sticky they became. Kids loved it and giggled when they "flew" off in the wrong direction. I bought 2 and put them side by side so if the flies went on the other card it counted too! The adding numbers made the teacher happy too! Pure fun.

Cute game idea, poor supplies
I needed a Halloween game for 150 kids. However, this game board is flimsy and will need further strengthening to use. Also, the very few sticky spiders included will NOT hold up to 150 kids - especially outdoors. Should be made of corrugated posterboard and include double the sticky spiders for the price.

spiderweb splat game
My mom bought this for my Halloween party and it was really fun and the flies were very sticky. We enjoyed the game very much.

I bought this game for my youngest daughter's class Halloween party and it was a big hit. We took it outside when the party was over and the kids hung it on the outside wall and played with the students from other classes and age groups. It was great entertainment. Thank you Oriental

Bought for 3 year old's preschool party. Could not even use because the spiders are way too sticky and wouldn't even come out of my hands let alone a 3 year olds.

Scrunch and splat
I definitely liked the artistry of the web. And the activity was hysterically funny. I just know that more sticky spiders are needed, because they can't help but get dirty and unsticky. So maybe three additional spider packets would be great, even if slight price increase.

You get what you pay for
In theory this is a great concept, unfortunately the material of the flies makes them stick to you and not where it needs to go, they also get really dirty, really quick and when dealing with kids parents (yup it was the parents and not the kids that had a problem with the flies), the game didn't last but the kids had fun.
The paper playing mat is thin paper that shipped half folded and makes it difficult to tape to the wall because it kept curling, for the price though it is what I expected. You get what you pay for just don't expect it to last past one use (event).
