LMAO, lining them up and tipping them over is the fun part. There IS a game where you kind of match the number of dots in a line, but I've forgotten how to start it. Aren't there directions in the box?
You are missing out on one of the greatest family games ever invented. It is a great game for teaching kids addition because you have to add the dots together to know whether or not you score. Multiples of 5 are how you score.
