In the box: 2-piece wooden base, 5 rings, 5 colored dowels
A "retro" packaged tossing game for the table top. I already have several vintage packaged games and, IMHO, there is nothing exceptional about them except the price. However, I have never seen a table top tossing game before, so thought this one was worth a try. Each wood piece for the base measures approximately 10" X 2", and the removable, colored, wood dowels are 3 1/2" tall. So yes, you really can play it at the table if you want. Each of the rings has a colored bead that matches a colored dowel, and each dowel has a number associated with it so that you can keep score If you want. I put a towel under the base so I don't take any chances on scratching a wood table. Quick and easy to set up, this game turned out to be fun and worth the $4 investment.
- Forget about the points and/or color matching, just see how many of the dowels you can ring.
- Practice throwing all rings onto one dowel before trying for a variety of distances.
- Stand while you play.
- Give each player a chance to throw two or three rings and see who can rack up the most points.
- Aim for one color, but turn the base as you go so that you are throwing at that color from different perspectives.
- Skip the colors, call out the dowel you are going to ring by identifying the position - right, left, front, back, and middle.
