Ringo Flamingo

Flip the rings


Pink flamingos stand in the blue water of the lagoon and it could be so nice and beautiful - where it not for the nasty green crocodiles, not at all peaceful, who threaten flamingoes. But luckily players can help with safety belts!

Flamingoes and crocodiles are placed into the slits of the board, the board is put into the box and the box is set on the table so that each corner points at one player.

Now each player is given a boat and twelve safety belts, eleven are put into the boat and the last one is put into the slit at the bow of the boat; boats are placed at a distance of about 20-40 cm from the box corners. And now the fun can begin!

All now play at the same time; you bend back the safety belt in the slit at the boatís bow and let go - the belt/ring flies towards the lagoon at flamingoes and crocodiles. You take up a second ring and flip it and do not pause to check if you put a ring over an animal or not. When all players have flipped all their rings, all loose rings are removed and put back into the boats. Then you collect all rings that you put over a flamingo and from those rings you put back one into the boat for each of your rings around a crocodile.

If you then hold most of the rings you are awarded a shell chip. Then the next round is played and if you own most chips after three rounds you win!

Pure action! Pure fun action! The catapults in the shape of a boat are an ingeniously simple mechanisms and not only children have fun in flipping the rings - uups, again I did hit a crocodile despite there being so many more flamingoes - come on, letís play again!
