I enjoy dexterity games and Bamboleo is one of my favourites. And it sounds so simple: all you have to do is remove one of the wooden pieces without everything crashing to the ground.
You start with lots of different wooden shapes – from rectangular blocks through pyramids to a sphere. These go on to what is usually described as a pizza base – a thin wooden disc. This, in turn, is balanced on a narrow stand. And now you can see the problem: remove any of the blocks and the disc will sway, dip and, quite possibly, topple over.
It's simple, it's fun and it puts children and adults on an equal footing.
