"FAILboat is a beer and pretzels game -- you play it with a bunch of your buddies just for laughs. You control the boat that starts in the middle of the screen. You have about two minutes to rack up the highest score you can while not touching the top or bottom of the screen (which freezes your score) or the runaway boat going the other direction (detracts points from your score). There are also currents to watch out for, as they can push your boat into the obstacles and you have to compensate for that. Since the score racks up so quickly and the obstacles are hard to avoid, determining the winner sometimes comes down to just a few points. It's everything a party game should be -- simple to pick up, over with quickly, and keeps the players bunced up enough that you don't know who's ultimately going to win."
