Introduction: Knex Hit the Spot Game


Hey guys,
I'm back, well for a while anyway. So do any of you remember the game Hit the Spot? I used to play it when I went to my grandparents house. If you don't remember it, the point was to get the ball to the top by moving the bars apart. It's a simple game, but takes some practice to get down. Anyway, I ran across it the other day and made it out of knex.

So here it is. The knex Hit the Spot game. Tell me what you think.

Hello K~SC. Do you still do knex? If so, are you working on anything?

author

I sadly don't have enough time anymore. I do however want to come back and post some new stuff but as well as not having the time I seem to be fresh out of ideas.

author

(Late, but better late than never) You put a ball on/between those yellow bars. Than you just move them in ←→ directions to guide the ball to the top

"Hit the spot" game sounds inappropriate for a family-friendly game.

Hit the G-Spot. Now that's a game I would play.

author

Yeah, I was building a ball machine, but I'm thinking of tearing it down and building something else.
