K'nex Tossing Game

Introduction: K'nex Tossing Game

About: I create games out of K'nex and sometimes a non game but mostly games. I enjoy all sorts of video games from pretty much any genre. I don't own any consoles however, just a pc. I'm also in the middle prog...

I always like making K'nex games so here it another one. This game is based off this game my uncle made out of wood. It does not have a real name so I call it, The Tossing Game.

Step 3: How to Play

You can play with a partner or in teams. The object of the game is to gain the most points. The white and yellow zone is 1 point, the blue zone is 2 points, the inner red zone is 3 points, and in the hole is 5 points. Each person or team gets either 4 black snowflake connecters or 4 white snowflake connecters. Each person or team takes turns throwing 1 of there snowflake connecters onto the board. Make sure you stand away from the board. You are allowed to hit other snowflake connecters away with your snowflake connecter. After each person or team has thrown all there snowflake connecters onto the board, go and find out your score. If a snowflake connecter is in the middle of two zones, count the higher zone. If the snowflake connecter is off the board, it counts as 0 points. It is where the snowflake connecter stopped moving that counts, not where the snowflake first hit. Whereever the snowflake connecters are, when going to check your score it what they count as. After finding out your score find out who won. Whoever has a higher score is the winner. To make the game more challenging, stand farther away from the board. To make the game longer, have rounds or a score goal. We usually play until someone reaches a score of 10. That is all you need to know about how to play so have fun!

    That will cause the middle hole being to small that is would be impossible or all most impossible to get one of the snowflake connecters in the midde hole.

    did you try that because it's the same size as it is normally so it should work

    I tried it and it makes the hole too small for the piece to go in

    I tried to find a way to make it without having to tape the center piece but it did not work. I do have another idea so I might try it out sometime.
