Our 9yr old son brought game for himself today only to be totally disappointed. On opening box batsman's head was broken off & rope holders missing. Played a few shots as shops closed (and son was in tears) and then the bowler to break off at feet. Very disheartening. As a young girl we had this game at home and played for many many hours (having 5 brother didn't have a choice) but quality of this these days and changes made I don't think have been thought over very well :(

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?

I figured out that I wasnt holding the bowlers arm down hard enough, great game, I would definitely reccomend buying it.

It seems like a good game but whenever we bowl the ball it bounces 3 or 4 times, is this meant to happen or is there something im doing wrong?

I agree with all above - some good and some bad changes compared to the orginal, however all minimal; my kids love it and know no other, so that is OK with me; recommended for kids over 5/6

My initial response was similar to some of the criticism above, particularly regarding the bowler. However with a bit of practice the improvements to this new version add a whole new deminsion to the game. Try bowling a little slower by not pulling the bowlers arm right back and adjust the length as well to control the bounce. The batsman, I feel, has more power than past versions. I've found it possible to hit the ball as around the ground and even the occassional 6.
Awesome fun!!

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

As usual, 'improvements' have been made but not tested by anyone who actually cares. ie marketers/bean counters/ carpet strollers. the ball bounces far too much, no runs can be scored in front of the wicket. joke. do not buy.

I was given this game for a christmas present and was very keen to play it, like I did many years ago. Unfortunately we cannot figure out how to work the bowler. The direction is impossible to work out and the ball bounces over the height of the batsman when you do get it straight.
