I remember playing Kerplunk when I was a kid. It was a great game then and still is to this day.
Kerplunk is an easy game to set up and play. Kerplunk is recommended for two to four players, but you can play on your own to perfect your skills at pulling straws out and having the fewest number of marbles fall. You’ll be game ready for game time. 🙂
Kerplunk is a blast from the past with a cool look and attitude! The object of the game is to skillfully remove the sticks from the tube while dropping the fewest marbles possible. the straws are passed through holes midway of the tube to form a lattice “web.” The marbles are then placed in the top of the tube and held in place by the web. Just set it up, start playing and watch out for marbles that go “Kerplunk” The players must use steady hands and a cool head to remove the sticks from below the marbles. This best game from yester-year is just as much fun today! Share your great memories or start new ones! You and your friends will have a blast playing Kerplunk, just don’t let the marbles fall! For 2 to 4 players.
One of Mattel’s most popular games for over 35 years
The game consists of a clear plastic tube, 30 thin sticks, and 32 marbles
Play begins with the players inserting the sticks through the tube and then pouring the marbles into the top of the tube
Players begin to carefully remove the sticks one by one, be careful not to let any marbles drop

Kerplunk is recommended for ages 5 an older due to the small playing pieces that can be a choking hazard. I agree with the age ranking set for Kerplunk.
Kerplunk is a perfect game for kids to play on their own or for family game nights. Kids can easily set Kerplunk up without help and be playing in minutes.
The Kerplunk box that we have has a new look to it and looks like this…
I love that there are so many ways to play Kerplunk if you get creative. You can have designated colors and pull your colors out. You can just take turns and pull any color out you wish on your turn. You could even add a die to the game and roll with whatever it lands on is the number of straws you have to pull out on your turn. There are a ton of ways to be creative and add fun challenges to Kerplunk.
Kerplunk is a timeless game that is a ton of fun to play. It gets you thinking and looking at where the straws are and what effect removing straws will have to the marbles sitting on them. Kerplunk leads to holding your breath as you sneak a straw out and a ton of laughs.
I have always found that Mattel products are amazing quality and engaging and Kerplunk has blasted itself from the past into the present with just as much excitement and quality that I remember from yester-years.
You can find Kerplunk at Canadian Tire, Real Canadian Superstore, Toys “R” Us, Walmart, and online at Amazon.
