Building on the tremendous success of Suspend, the new Junior version brings this blockbuster balance game to younger kids with brighter colors, lighter pieces, and a brand-new spinner. Game play is easy: Simply set up the frame, spin the spinner, and balance the color-coded pieces to create an incredible hanging structure. Race against your opponents to be the first to run out of pieces-but watch out: One wrong move and the whole structure could fall! This thrilling game is perfect for young players-there is no reading required, and the skills to succeed grow with every game. Kids learn how to balance and counterbalance, take smart risks, and foresee consequences, all the while having lots of fun.
Suspend Junior is a balancing game that is as easy to understand as it is difficult to master. With each turn, a new piece is added to the transforming vertical sculpture, causing the balance to shift and the difficulty to increase. Recommended for ages four years and up, this balancing game tests your nerves and helps develop hand-eye coordination, cognitive skills, and interpersonal skills. Players must use one hand to hang and balance the individual game rods on the frame without causing the structure to collapse. If you touch any of the suspended game pieces with your other hand, you have to take back your piece, losing your turn. Should you cause one or more pieces to fall, you have to pick them up and add them to your pile. The first player to run out of pieces is the winner. Suspend Junior can be played individually or with up to four players. A colored spinner is included to determine which color of game rod is to be used at each turn.
Suspend Junior is a fun and challenging game of coordinating balance. Our testers found the game and its rules simple to follow and challenging to play. Rather than arbitrarily placing pieces about the frame, Suspend Junior requires players to skillfully determine where pieces of different lengths will best balance. Players of all ages will appreciate the challenges to their hand-eye coordination and cognitive skills as they try to win the game.
