Quick Take: Yes, you are literally catapulting goats onto a mountain in this fun little playdate game. I adore quite a few things about this game - not many pieces so there is minimal cleanup. Assembling the mountain is quite easy. And it's not loud like Don't Break the Ice or gross like half the playdate games out there. Grandparents could easily play it with their grandkids and have a blast, the rules are minimal and it's quick to get up and running. Don't knock the silly, non-strategy games for your kids. They're fun, they're easy, and they serve a great purpose. And your kids can generally play them together without you having to be involved. Bonus!

 

Variations: If someone is too good at this game make them use their non-dominant hand on the slinger catapult device.
