If you had to choose between these three expensive dexterity games which would you choose and why or do you have another to recommend?



Poll
Which of these dexterity games would you choose?
Bamboleo $49.95
Bausack $41.95
Hamsterrolle $42.95
All (money is of no consequence)
None, I don't like any of them.
None, I'd choose another...

I'm guessing that once I buy one I'd be disinclined to buy one of the others. Which would get played more in a large family setting? I would likely pull this out to draw in my non-gamer family members or during large parties.

Like all novelty games, I find the replayability is inversely proportional to the WOW factor.

That said, Hamsterrolle has the biggest wow factor but gets stale quicker. Bausack is the least impressive to see played, but will have the most humor and variety in play. Bamboleo is a middle ground between the two.

and yes you can own all 3 as these are the types of games you can only play a limited amount of (in the overall sense are all wow factor games with less replayability).

I haven't played Bamboleo. Both Bausack and Hamsterrolle involve dexterity and good judgment of balance. What Bausack offers that the others don't is appeal for artistic types. It's as much fun to make a beautiful or unusual tower as it is try to optimize for the game objective.

Bausack actually has instructions for four games using the pieces. That might help to keep it from getting stale.

Plus you get the opportunity to ask people if they'd like to play with your Bausack.

Apparently nothing more is needed. Thank you very much for your help.

Bausack is the clear winner.
