Counteract Game from Ideal

Vintage Game Demonstration: Counteract from Ideal (1971)

Editor’s Note: Counteract was a game that “challenges your judgement and defies your sense of balance”. Two or more players were tasked with keeping the game tray balanced as a series of weights were redistributed around the playing surface to nudge the Counteract ball towards the centre of the tray. The player who landed the Counteract ball into the winner’s circle without upsetting the balance won the game.
