If you've never played, you'll get a kick out of throwing the Bolas at the targets and watching them wrap around. Then, you'll start to get the hang of it and start aiming for a particular level.
Oh yeah, there are rules! They come with the set. So, you'll know how to play once you get the game. I'm just saying that's how I got addicted to the game. It felt to me like throwing an ancient weapon in a legendary war.
But, my friends snapped me out of my daydream. I woke up at a tailgating and that was even better. I'd rather have beer, burgers and some good ol' tailgating games than be at war any day!
