Promoting good sportsmanship and a fair deal, this unusual game stresses teamwork over a competitive nature. Players choose a Packy Play Fair game piece, spin the wheel and pick a card. Each card teaches kids how to be good sports. If Packy does the right thing players move ahead, and if he doesn´t, players take one step back. Twists and turns make this game exciting.

The kit uses interlocking pieces of pre-cut wood to make a basic model on to which electrical and mechanical components are added. Each kit builds into a fascinating machine that is fun to assemble and great to play with. Once assembled, players test how steady their hand is by trying to move the wire loop along the same course as the jagged wire without touching it, which would result in a buzz.
