The Boardrun – an Interchangeable Marble Run: 4 Steps (with Pictures)

Looks simple enough.  Perhaps a present for young (5-10?) kids?

Heck, my brother and I tried making “pinball” games on our ping-pong table (circa 1974-5, St, Thomas, grade 5).  Lots of cardboard and masking tape.  Barely worked, but occupied a lot of time.

Could be made into a challenging, puzzle-solving game.  Like make a peg board version of bells, buckets, etc.  Like a physical version of the “Rube Goldburg” machines.

If do, to make a template as large as possible, or a full horizontal line, to make holes accurate.

Con: no screens, no chat, no socials.  No one does this stuff now….
