How To Play Giant Kerplunk

The game base has compartments numbered 1 through 4. Each player selects a numbered compartment to use throughout the game. Choose a player to go first; play then passes to the left. On each turn, slowly rotate the tube so that the window opening is lined up with your numbered compartment. Be careful not to move the balls.Choose any stick and carefully pull it all the way out of the tube, trying not to move the balls and causing them to fall. Note: The first stick you touch is the stick you must pull, but you may hold the tube steady with one hand. When you’ve removed the stick, place it aside. It’s now the next player’s turn .

NOTE: A player’s turn is not completely over until the moment the next player touches the tube to rotate it, or touches a stick. Any balls that drop before the next player touches either the tube or a stick are added to the first player’s score. Balls that drop during your turn will automatically go into your numbered compartment. Do not remove them -- just leave them there until the game is over.When all the balls have dropped into the game base, each player counts the number of balls in their compartment. The player with the least number of balls in their compartment is the WINNER
