Players must use one hand to hang and balance the individual game rods on the frame without causing the structure to collapse. If you touch any of the suspended game pieces with your other hand, you have to take back your piece, losing your turn. Should you cause one or more pieces to fall, you have to pick them up and add them to your pile. The first player to run out of pieces is the winner.
Suspend can be played individually or with up to four players. A colored die is included to determine which color of game rod is to be used at each turn.
Suspend comes with 24 colored game rods, rods and connectors to construct the base, and a colored die. Before playing, assemble the stand on a level playing surface. Insert the frame rods into the holes of the wooden base, and then add the wooden connector and frame rod with hook. Distribute the pieces among the players, making sure each player has the same number of colored game rods. Place any additional pieces in a draw pile for everyone to use.
For versatile game play, Suspend can be played in four different ways. Beginner-level play allows inexperienced players to work their way from using longer pieces to shorter pieces, while intermediate play requires more experienced players to draw on another player's game rods should they roll a color they no longer have. The expert tournament requires advanced players to keep score using a point system. For individual play, the balancing pieces of Suspend can be used to create a freeform sculpture.
Suspend is a fun and challenging game of coordinating balance. Our testers found the game and its rules simple to follow and challenging to play. Rather than arbitrarily placing pieces about the frame, Suspend requires players to skillfully determine where pieces of different lengths will best balance. Players of all ages will appreciate the challenges to their hand-eye coordination and cognitive skills as they try to win the game.
