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.

Yeah I play pretty much all types of guitar except classical. I can play just about anything with strings.
Hello K~SC. Do you still do knex? If so, are you working on anything?
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.
Ok. I think we all get an time where that happens.

i dont get how it works
(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
ooooo

I remember this game, its on that gam where you have to get the marble to the ell before time runs out. Or at least a version of tis is. This looks great, 5*

"Hit the spot" game sounds inappropriate for a family-friendly game.
Hit the G-Spot. Now that's a game I would play.

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