This is a game that my cousin’s wife’s Grandfather had made and she wants me to reproduce it. This is a pic of the original one. I am planning on making some slight modifications to it.

Hate to show my ignorance, but what is the “game”?

Looks like this is a board for “trouble” or “sorry” or “Parcheesi.” Lots of possibilities for variations on the board if it’s one of the games I mentioned.

Interesting. I would probably find a dowl that fits into the holes. Cut it up to make enough for every hole and file the end to a point so they will make a mark on some hardboard so you can make a drilling template.

or you can probably get some peg board and lay it on top, mark the holes on the peg board that match the original game board and use that as a drilling template.

That would be the easy part I guess. The hard ormost time consuming part would be turning the play pieces.

The game is a cross between chinese checkers and trouble. I was thinking of the peg board idea. I will have to work that out yet. It uses marbles

What are the rules? I might make one for the grandkids. I would lay it out on pegboard and mark through to the lumber. The spacing wouldn’t be too critical as long as the marbles or whatever you use fits. I have seen games that use golf tee’s. I wish this website had a spell checker on it.

When I was a kid I played this game with marbles. It’s called “aggrivation” (at least that’s what my grandma always called it). We used a board that her father had made probably in the ‘40s and now I have it for me & my brood.

That is the name aggrevation. Don’t know the rules.

That’s freaky. This summer my wife had me make this:
Photobucket

based on a board she saw that came from my BIL’s family. Prior to that I’d never seen one before. Be sure to make yourself a template for those holes.
