I have never played this game before and I am a mother of 3 in my 40s. I purchased them to teach my children and Girl Scout troop about the Jewish holiday in December since my children's godfather is of Jewish Decent, my way to honor him. My oldest 15 year old son and I had a blast learning how to play, my son was a spinning pro but I have to keep practicing. They are really balanced and a great weight so spin wonderfully when I get it going. I am looking forward to my Girl Scout troop members responses!
