This is one of those nights where nothing is new. So even tho some of you probably don't care I'm going to post some pictures of the Game I made over the weekend. Now I'll start with a picture of all the parts needed. Most have been cut to size.
Next is a picture of all the pieces layed out so I can see if they are going to fit how I wanted.
After glueing and nailing the pieces together I put the felt under it to see how it will look. This is when I decided to paint it.
And the last picture is of the final product. I thought it turned out pretty good for my first try. How To Play
Its a pretty simple game to play. You roll the dice on the playing surface and add them up. Then you knock the pegs (numbered 1-9) down that add up to the total of the dice. example...if you roll a 4 and 3 = 7 then you can knock down the #7 peg or the #3 and #4 or the #5 and #2 or the #6 and #1 or the #4 and #2 and #1. You must roll both dice ! They must stay on the playing surface. Once you roll the dice and can't knock down any tiles you lose. Or if you end up with the #1 being the last tile, you lose. If you can knock down all the tiles you win. Very simple but not as easy as it sounds. I played 25 times last night beating it on my second and 25th try.
