The game consists of a transparent plastic tube, plastic rods called straws and several dozen marbles. The base contains four separate numbered trays and the straws are passed through holes in the middle of the tube to form a lattice. The marbles are then placed in the top of the tube and held in place by the lattice. The onomatopoeic name of the game derives from the sound of the marbles tumbling to the base of the tube during play.
Players take turns removing sticks from the tower while trying to minimize the number of balls that drop
