Ah, Italy. Where Galileo meets Gelato. And you meet eight of the most hilarious,
action packed events starting with a sack race in pot holed Naples.
its on to Pisa to balance a pile of pasta plates. Six more zany events make
this an intensely fun game from U.S. Gold.
It'sa wild. It'sa wacky. It's Sports-A-Roni!
Take eight of the silliest sports ever invented. Put them in eight
of Italy's liveliest locations. Then invite 18 different countries to
compete. And what have you got? Some downright, old-fashioned,
Start with a sack race in pot-holed Naples. Then pop over to Pisa
to balance a precarious pile of pasta plates. Next it's on to Rome,
where you'll hurl Casanova's boot with or without a bootful of
water. Then try to pole vault the Arno river without ending up
with your head in the sand.
Scale a pole in Verona that's coated with Italy's finest olive-oil
and topped with her bubbliest seltzer. And if you're really
starting to climb the walls by now, Venice is the place to do it. But
don't forget your hat!
When you take part in a pillow fight on a wobbly gondola, someone's
going to end up in the canal. Then last but not least, pogo through a
field of ancient ruins bursting balloons as you go.
Play as many games as you like. Against as many as six opponents.
Then view your final scores and placements on a special screen at the
end of each event.
Sports-A-Roni. It's enough to make you a little crazy. Which is
exactly what makes it so much fun!
