I built three of these for a craft sale last month. I sold one there then the person who bought that one contacted us to buy the other two. Gifts she says.

Thanks to LJ Stevemarin in one of his WWMM videos. If not for him I’d never heard of the game.

It is a fun game to play; so, now I need to make another one so we have one.

Enjoy!

P.S.
I didn’t write the dimensions down so like most things I build I’ll resort to guess work.

Thanks for looking and for your comments. It had been awhile since I seen Steves video. I kind of went of the cuff when I made these. So, I just watched it for a refresher. I like the way he did his build, esp. with the spacers in between the tabs and using a shorter rod with plugs to hold it in place. I’ll follow his instructions more closely next time.

Enjoy!

I started building these, from Steve’s plan also, just about the same as you did. My first one was used at a party we had for friends and family and that resulted in orders for 3 more. Those three orders brought in 7 more orders and so on I think that now I’m up to about 16 games I have made and I don’t even have one for myself. Yours look very good so keep up the nice work and expect to make more.

very nice. My Dad had made some similar for gifts years ago. Curious for what price these are fetching?

Thanks! I let these go for real cheap at 15. The person I sold them too said she would pay more. However, she had purchased several other items so I gave her a discount. Being that these were the first ones I built I wasn’t looking for a profit. I was more looking to see if there was an interest in them. I could of easily sold them for 25. If I make to sell in the future I’ll make minor improvements and sell for 25 to 30.
