This game board is 24” x 24”, made of 3/4” Birtch plywood with Black Walnut trim. I made my own trim from my stock. The colors are Acrylic paint and outlined with black acrylic paint. The finish is 1- Sander sealer, 2- 4 coats of satin Poly, 3- Lightly rubbed with steel wool and then waxed.

I turned the 16 pegs and painted them then coated with gloss Poly.

This game is played with playing cards each card lets you move your pegs according to game rules. We learned this game last winter while in Florida. It is a fun game to play and get dirty and did I mention FUN!!

Nice job… made and posted one myself a couple of months ago.
Never heard of the game until someone asked me to make a board.

Great looking board and playing pieces. It looks like a lot of time went into making it look just right.

Nice looking board. Comparing yours and Ellen’s, it is fun to see how creative one can be on this.

Great job in turning those pieces- they all look identical!!

How did you do the lettering/numbers?

Lew, I cheated on the lettering and numbers…... just a little. I have a label maker that will print on a clear backing. I think it worked well at least well enough for me.

Thanks for looking,

LOVE the game Tock!

that’s the firs time however that i’ve seen someone do it to 20, i’ve only ever seen 18 then “home”
and i notice you bypassed the idea of the middle “pass through”
(they sell the game in 4, 6, 8 Player versions.

I’ve even seen someone on here make a 4 and 6 version player on one board. there was an “inner track” and “outer track” depending on how many people were playing..

I “believe” it goes to 18, cause you can do some forms of math, say you’re on 15, and you have an 8 (though it works with almost any combination i believe) If you add the 15 and 8 you get 23, add the 2+3 of 23, and you get 5.. from 15 with an 8 you’ll land on 5. (again, it works with other positions and played cards)

Nice board!

That’s a beautiful game board and I love the colors and the finish. I don’t play board games very often but the rest of my family love them. It looks like an interesting game; what is the name of the game? – I’ll pass the info to my family. :)
