Bounce It-In is played on a 5x5 grid with 25 holes. Each player on their turn attempts to bounce a ball once off of the table into the game board grid. Players start with 24 balls of four colors split up evenly amongst the players.
There are four different games that can be played with the game set. Sometimes the goal is to get 5 balls in a row of any color, other times the goal is to score points and sometimes a combination of both. An insert goes underneath the grid that shows what the point value for a particular hole is.
