KerPlunk was one of my favorite games as a child. (I like noisy stuff) It consists of a hollow plastic tube, colored straws and marbles. Basically the straws fit through the middle of the tube in a layered web and you pile the marbles on top of that. Players take turns pulling the straws out and hoping that the marbles don't drop. The player that dropped the least marbles at the end of the game wins.
I have fallen in love with playing games again. What are your favorites?
