toy guide

Board games are a huge hit in our house. Prior to Covid, we would have a games night once per month with family but that has obviously changed. Klask is a game of skill and speed where players maneuver their strikers using powerful steering magnets to try and get the ball into their opponent’s hole. Players must also be weary of the tiny white magnets on the board for if they get to close to one, they will attach to their playing piece. If two magnets attach, their opponent scores a point. If a player gets their playing piece caught into their own goal, their opponent marks another point. First player to 6 points wins the game!
