Players: Chris, Mick, Steve O, Garry

This is another of Zoch’s manual dexterity games like Bausack and Bamboleo. Imagine a hamster’s exercise wheel, divided into numerous segments, separated by low fences (obviously a National Hunt racing hamster). The players each receive seven wooden pieces, which they aim to place ( one per person per turn ) within the wheel without any pieces falling out. Unfortunately, you have to place your piece progressively higher up the wheel, which causes it to roll and any pieces dislodged are taken back as a penalty. The first to get rid of their pieces wins.

All pretty simple but experienced gamers approach this challenge very tactically and attempt to place their pieces such that the next player has a near on impossible task of introducing a piece safely. It’s all good stuff but is slightly let down by the fact that when most of the pieces are already on the wheel, one person’s downfall means that the next player in turn often has a simple task of adding their last piece and winning.

That said, we all enjoyed it and this is one that non-gamers will love. From memory, it was Steve O that triumphed to prove he was a true rodent.
