These were supposed to be in the blog. I started it out as an unfinished project and thought I could add photos. Oh well here they are. A few more pieces need to be added. Will post pics when they are done.

This really brings back memories. About 40 years ago my Great Grandfather made one of these game boards for us kids. It was made of plywood and wasn’t nearly this nice. He called it “Wahoo” and it played a lot like “Sorry” using marbles and dice. Spent a lot of time on the carpet playing that game, glad to see it has not disappeared.

Exactly, my cousin’s wife says it is a cross between trouble and chinese checkers. I want the instructions to the game so I can make one for myself.

I looked for and found “aggration” rules at http://files.boardgamegeek.com/geelfile_view.php?fileid+2679 . I think there are several variations of the game and board. Hope to build some for the grandkids myself. This is a new one to me but it looks interesting.

Got to love google to validate rusty memories: Wahoo or Wa Hoo, The original text isn’t very PC regarding Native Americans and some of the Boards are swastika shaped. The only thing missing from your board is the shortcut spot in the middle. (edit) My bad, not all of the boards have the shortcut spot.

Rules / How to play

My wife has been after me for years to make one of these. She’s already got the marbles. Sets them out where I can see them every once in awhile, lest I forget. Looks like you’re doing a nice job.

Hey, it must be in the air. I’ve got six of them being made in the garage. I have the original that my grandfather made in 1967 and my brothers and sisters told me this is what they want for Christmas. I see Dkol noticed the missing hole in the middle, and additionally the ones I have also have two additional holes for each player, one on each side of the “home” row. Mine are about half done so I’ll post them up here in a day or two. Did you use solid wood?
