Boom Blast Stix

Boom Blast Stix is a game whereby springs with a hair trigger mechanism are placed one by one ontop of each other. The real ‘WOW’ moment in the game comes when a mistake is made by a player, causing the pile to wobble or topple, which in turn sets of a chain reaction through the springs and creates an explosion of plastic parts that will fly up to 2 metres in all directions! The correct choice of plastic, extensive testing, and control of fine design tolerances around the hair trigger mechanism were the real challenges with this project.
