The South Tyrol Game
The players steer a ball with levers through the holiday paradise, past lively scenes and lots of comic details. From the ski slopes to a hospital full of legs in plaster, or would you prefer an après-ski party? A Grödner artist, Teo Mahlknecht, carved the 10-metre-long tourism pin-ball machine out of pinewood.
