Klask is an action board game that combines aspects of table football and air hockey. Your aim is to use your under-the-table-magnet-controlled player to push the ball into the opponent's goal. The twist is that you lose points if you inadvertently push your player into your hole or knock into the other pieces in play. It's a raucous but highly skilled game of cat and mouse as you try and outmanoeuvre your opponent without coming a cropper.
