Player tosses two balls into the game box. All the holes in the box are randomly numbered from one to six. Player wins in the two balls land in holes that add up to either 7 or 11.
This game is basically a box with angled sides and back that have 12 holes that are randomly numbered from 1 to 6 (see picture).
The base of this game is a board with 2.5″ holes that measures 17″ wide x 17″ deep (see pictures).
The pictures are very detailed with the measurements, but all the sides measure 15.5″ high on the inside. The back and side boards are all built using 1/2″ plywood.
The back board measures 32″ at the top (from the outside of the game) and 17″ at the bottom. The height is about 17.25″.
The two side boards measure 25″ at the top (from the outside of the game) and 17″ on the bottom. The height is about 17.25″.
The front edge piece measures 17″ long, and is about 1.5″ wide. We used a scrap piece of molding for this front piece.
Here’s where it gets a little tricky.
The game is built on a small platform that is 2″ in height in the back and 1.5″ in height in the front. The two side pieces of the platform start as 2″ in the back and end up as 1″ in the front. All pieces of the platform are built using 1/2″ plywood.
The back platform measures 16″ x 2″.
The front piece of the platform measures 16″ x 1.5″.
The two sidepieces of the platform measure 16″ x 2″ (in the back ) and 1″ (in the front).
The holes are number using decals available from any office supply store. We’ve used 3/4″ sized decals.
For the 7 – 11 decals we’ve used 4″ decals.
You may use either foam balls, tennis balls or wiffle balls for this game. we find that the dense foam balls seem to work best.
- One sheet of 4′ x 8′ plywood that is 1/2″ thick – You’ll have plenty left over
- One piece of molding that is 16″ long
- One package of decals numbering from 1 to 6 that are 3/4″
- One package of decals numbering from 1 to 6 that are 4″
- Paint as needed
- A drill bit (often called a hole saw) that cuts 2.5″ holes
- Two dense foam balls
