Suspend, with the packaged rules, is fun for a short time. It's interesting to play out your pile of bars with three friends and watch the structure evolve. As adults, the basic rules simply make the game too easy and if you're the first player it's very easy to win. Adding the dice rolls adds a bit of luck to the gameplay, since you might lose your turn by rolling a color you've already played. After about five games of playing by the rules, the game becomes less interesting and fun.

In order to make the game more interesting, last longer, and allow for more players - 4 player maximum is very limiting. We changed the game to have a pull pile and to be point based.

Place all bars in the center of the table. All players will pull from these bars. Play starts with the first player and proceeds clockwise.

Phase 1 - The Build
The player rolls the dice to determine the bar color to be placed. If there are no bars of that color, then the turn moves to the next player. If there are bars of that color, then place the bar on the structure. Any bars that fall during that players turn are negative points for each notch in the bar. For example, orange bars are -7 and yellow bars are -2. All bars that fall off the structure are placed back into the pile. The bar being placed by the player must be placed (hand removed) for play to continue to the next player. If the bar being placed also falls, the player receives negatives points for that bar.

Phase 2 - Deconstruction
The player removes a bar from the structure. Only one bar can be removed per player turn. If more than one bar is removed, then the player receives negative points per notch on each bar removed; this includes bars that fall during removal. If the player successfully removes a single bar, then that player receives positive points equal to the number of notches on the bar.

Once all bars have been removed the player with the highest score wins.

By changing the rules, the game is opened up to a larger number of players. The game also lasts longer with bigger, more unstable structures. The game also becomes more strategic and is often about how to cause other players to lose points. For even more fun, we added a second set of Suspend.

Lastly, as a gaming group we feel that Suspend could benefit from additional pieces. For example, pieces that are bent, pieces that are not symmetrical, etc. would make the game more challenging.

Comments about Melissa & Doug Suspend Family Game (31 pcs):

Hoolee Molee !!! Bam! my sixteen year old said "wow! it sounds like UNO and Jenga all in one game! I changed my mind, can I still play too?" My sisters and their young kids played with my kids all afternoon today. They also took pictures of the package so maybe they will be ordering one soon too. Thank you for giving us a game where teens, pre-teens, and younger kids can all work together to create this "Metal Monster" for fun or as a competitive game. Even the adults enjoyed playing it and "helping" the younger ones.

Comments about Melissa & Doug Suspend Family Game (31 pcs):

This was meant as a gift for 2 kids, but any adult visiting gets hooked on this game! It is challenging but in such a fun way that even our 7 yr. old who is easily frustrated and is under the suggested age range enjoys it greatly! It has been the hit of all the Christmas gifts this year! I plan to buy more for the kids to give as a gift to birthday parties they will be attending in the future.
