Get the ball through the hole. A classic game of skill based on the traditional game of Bilboquet.
It looks simple enough: pick up the paddle, gently swing the ball in an arc and have it fall through the hole in the other end of the paddle.
However, it is a great test of hand-eye coordination. It takes much more subtlety than is anticipated. After you practice for a while you can definitely get it in the hole much more often.
Makes a great party favour, desk toy or stocking stuffer.
