Goblet Toss

Game Rules

Player throws tree ping pong balls at goblets. If one ping pong ball lands in a red goblet the player is a winner.

Game Description

The box is built on a base of 18″ x 18″ plywood (3/4″). The two sides of the box are 18″ x 18″ plywood that is 1/2″ thick. The two sides have the top corners cut off (about 3 inches) and sanded.
The back is 18″ high and 19.25″ wide, and this also is made 3/4″ plywood. This is attached once the base and two sides are in place.
The front edge is an 18″ piece of 1.25″ x 1.25″ wood.
The goblets may be either glass or plastic.
Three of the goblets are painted red. Two coats of red spray paint are recommended.
Simply place the goblets in the box, making sure the red goblets are spaced away from each other. Since the goblets do not move, and the ping pong balls are light, we have never found a need to attach the goblets to the base.
Be sure to buy a package of at least six ping pong balls, as they have a tendency to get crushed.

Carnival Games

Hey Jack, Thanks so much.

My 7 year old daughter just climbed on my lap and we watched some of your videos together.

There are some games I know I could do in time for my son's birthday.

Love it!
