The i-Top (Goliath Games) is similar to a regular top, but larger and thinner. The color I got was Infinite Purple with silver plastic. It comes in two other colors, Mega Gear Blue and Vortex Red.

After you spin, it lights up with a high score number in red. It also gives you the last person’s spin number. If you spin it at least 99 times, you can unlock all the different animations. Then you refer to the box to find your achievement. For example, Lucky Charm means nothing is luckier than spinning 888.

I like this a lot. It could entertain you for a while. It would be better if it played sounds or said the score. I recommend playing this on a large, hard, flat surface. It would be fun for two to six players.
