Most of the games sold for less than $200 or $300 are either missing parts, or the tower does not work. There was a huge lawsuit against (was it Mattel?) the manufacturer because they just outright stole it from the designer, so very few were actually sold

I remember seeing a kickstarter for a revival of the game, which is pretty great

Didn't say they were cheap. Just like the Schwinn Grey Ghost I always wanted and can't afford now.

Lucky for me my mom is kinda a hoarder. I asked her if she still had it about 5 years ago and she did! We dug it out and it did not work. A goggle search and wd-40 good to go.
