Absolute rubbish. What a disappointing example of why marketers and advertising boffins should never be allowed to alter anything that was once good. The original game was awesome. This new version is a disgrace. DO NOT BUY.

Advantages: NOTHING

Disadvantages: EVERYTHING

Agree... So many differences between my nostalgic aka original Test Match board game & the new version I recently purchased for my 7 yr old boy. To me, old school is best. In saying that, we have already broken the trigger action batsman & need to find a replacement. Can anyone suggest where I can get one without buying a whole new game?

So many fond childhood memories destroyed by this modern day travesty. The bowler here is useless and seems to be designed to break . The old ramp style bowler made the game so much better. The field ripped and is impossible to keep flat. So disappointed

Advantages: My childhood version of the game

Disadvantages: Everything about the new version

The quality of this game is now just rubbish. After half a day of play the spring loaded bowler is broken, and the mat is impossible to get flat. Where on earth can I get a new bowler??

Advantages: The idea of playing this again after many years.

Disadvantages: Everything else, especially the quality.

Yes, I too had the original test match as a child and they have completely ruined this version - The bowler with the shute is gone and replace by a catapult that rarely ever gets the ball near the bat. And the Batsman is no longer string drawn but is trigger operated and just has no power. The ball now has an off centre so it doesn't roll straight and the felt is almost impossible to iron flat. Amazingly disappointed
