Thank you doubleDD for posting your Coin Drop Game.

Dave I saw your Coin Drop Game posted here and showed my wife and the ladies she and I play cards with on occasion. I asked them what they thought about this game. They all said make it and we will come play with you! So I did and we have a date for Friday afternoon.

The box is Mahogany 9 5/8” L X 4 3/4” W X 2 3/8 H The top is maple. the numbers and letters are peel and stick.
Thanks again Dave for sharing your talents and introducing me to this fun game!

Here is a Youtube video that shows how the game is played.

Looks great tony. A nice added touch with the recessed coin pull. By any chance are those glasses there for you to see the numbers? LOL.
The video makes me laugh, this guy throws dice like a pro. I played the game as two players just as he did, we both lost.

H3ey Tony, that is a good game and a great job.
Might just have to make one myself if you don’t mind.

Thanks Jim,
I wish Dave lived a little closer to me Jim; so I could win all his coins! :)

Thanks Dave,
I need those glasses are to keep my eyes from getting tired when counting all the money I win! LOL!
The guy in the video did have a good Idea about everyone putting a quarter in the box and that’s what you get if you win. It’s better than winning all those pennies. You can still add the coin pull. A penny is 3/4” and fits perfectly in the hole!

Thanks Bob,
You know me Bob anything I make is ok to copy. And I know Dave wouldn’t mind one bit either. We would love to see your version of this game too! My slots are a bit sloppy; I think my 1/8” spiral bit was flexing under the stress. Maybe took too much with each pass.

Tony, you just beat me to it. I also plan on building one (or two) :-)

How did you cut the slots for the coins? Such a cute little game.
