Make a fun game of Ring Toss, nice and easy to make, fun to use when you have time to kill!

This is a game we play at my camp, Belknap, and is a fun way to pass time. It's deceptively hard and addictive. requires ver few materials, most of which you probably have at home!

This is my first instructable, hope you like it. Comments are welcome!!

Step 1: Gathering Materials

You're going to need a few things before you start.

First, find a nail long enough to have about an inch and a half sticking out. Oh yeah, you need a hammer, for obvious reasons.

The next thing to find is some string, or twine. For length, you want about 5 feet, that way, if you have to much you can shorten it. Better safe than sorry!

You want to find something to suspend the string from, like a clip in my case, or maybe another nail.

And last, you need to pick up a ring. I got mine from Home Depot. It is nickel plated 1/4" by 2" steel rings, that come in packs of two.

Now that you have that, onto the construction!

excellent tutorial! exactly what I needed to set up a ring toss of my own.
My day plays with this every morning before work. It's very hard for me to beat him.
I went to a bar that one of these. Great fun. It was amazing how much people got into putting that little ring on the hook. There was one guy that spent way too much time there and didn't miss it was impressive.
My old roommate and I just happened to make one of these in our old apartment at the beginning of this summer, it was great for fiddling with while on the phone (we got no service in the house, what can ya do?). Little tip though; only use woven twine or something that will not unwind and lengthen itself (getting the length right is super important) , we ended up using heavy duty fishing line and it worked out perfect.
