A Balero’s a Mexican Skill Toy Most El Pasoans Struggle to Master
Some people have no game when it comes to playing with a balero. A balero is a wooden toy that has a cup-like figure attached to a stick with a string.
The whole point behind this difficult and stressful game is trying to get the stick into the hole of the wooden cup. I am definitely no professional at that game whatsoever and still have high hopes I can one day win that battle.
I remember a long time ago when I was a kid, I was so determined to kick butt at that game I practiced religiously.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to earn a score since I can't land the stick in the hole, there are some people who can play with the balero like a champion.
I remember my dad would show me that trick a lot when I was younger and he was pretty good at it too.
If you're the type to get mad when you don't win a game then this game isn't for you.
I remember watching a friend try so many attempts and get so frustrated on his last one he hit himself on the forehead.
In my opinion, I believe this game is the hardest game I have ever played still to this day.
