What It Is
PongCano is a fast-paced game of skill that has players trying to safely land a ping pong ball in the bottom of the PongCano Volcano. To play, divide the 12 chips evenly among the players. Place any extra chips in the volcano. Place the volcano in the center of the playing surface. Players take turns bouncing the ping pong ball into the volcano. If you miss a shot, you must place one chip in the volcano. If you make a shot, you take all the chips out of the volcano. The winner is the last player with all of the chips.
PongCano comes with a PongCano Volcano, a ping pong ball, and 12 chips. It is for two or more players.
Why It’s Fun
PongCano is like a family friendly version of Beer Pong—try to bounce a ping pong ball into a cup, or in this case, a volcano. The rules are easy to understand, which means less time learning how to play and more time playing. Even though the rules are easy, the game is still challenging. There is a learning curve to bouncing the ball into the volcano. You won't get the ball into the volcano every time—but that's the point of the game.
Who It’s For
PongCano is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
In PongCano, no player is out until all the chips have been won. So even if you don't have any more chips, you still get to play.
