Downfall is a game of gears, twists and turns, and strategy. Players take turns using their game key to turn one gear at a time, with the aim being to get all 10 of their tokens down through the gears and into their chute first to win. Players need to be strategic and think ahead. Every move could actually help their opponent on the other side of the game unit. While players try to outwit each other, they can practice valuable skills in strategic planning, critical thinking, and visual reasoning.
