So the weather outside is not what you envisioned for you to shoot a few rounds of golf – what do you do then? Fret not, you can still enjoy your golf game via Magnetic Golf, where you can always kill some time at the office with this £11.99 toy.
Besides your little magnetic golfer himself (apparently there’s no female version of him – that’s not very representative, now is it?), you’ve got a green with a moveable hole, a bunker, a water hazard and some trees to set up your own personalised fairway. It’s not point and flick game either, just a fractional increase or decrease in swing power can drastically alter the course of a hole, making it something of a fine art. With a bit of practice you can perform chip shots, tee shots and some pretty tricky putts and, because it’s all magnetised, you’ve got at least some chance of getting a hole-in-one.
Magnetic Golf could be a physical version of a time killer, and at least you don’t have to fool around with Excel desktop backgrounds in order to fool your boss – be bold enough to tell them you’re taking five in order to get a better grasp on the future money-spinning ideas for the company.
