DISC DROP GAME - SETUP & DIRECTIONS
Supplies for Disc Drop Carnival Game:
1 Disc Drop Game (handmade as above or tabletop disc drop purchased see below)
Table for Ticket Box and Prizes with Numbers to Coordinate with Game
Assorted carnival prizes and buckets to match to the numbers at the bottom of the board.
Make This Carnival Game:
1 Large Sheet of Pegboard
Pegs for Board (120+ for large boards)
2 x 4 Wood Boards and nails or screws to frame the board and for the bottom of the game
Paint to add some bright colors and winning numbers to the bottom of your board
Hockey Pucks or Other Round Discs
Using the wood boards, make a frame around the pegboard to keep the discs in the game. In addition, you will need to build a frame to allow the game to stand upright and at a slight angle. (to allow the discs to slide down the board without falling off)
Add some boards in a a zigzag type design at the bottom of your board to have discs land in a few set areas (at least three) with assorted numbers that coordinate with prizes. (see image above)
Paint your game and decorate as desired.

How to Play the Disc Drop Carnival Game:
You may set this game up many different ways, but, the easiest way to play is to give, carnival players 1 disc. Players place the disc on the top of the board and watch the disc bump its way down the board and into the slot. The number on the slot correlates to the prize given.
For example, let’s say you choose 4 different carnival prizes / small toys to correlate to each number.
Prize Number 1 = Jelly Bracelets
Prize Number 2 = Spin Tops
Prize Number 3 = Whizzers
Prize Number 5 = Candy Necklace
If the carnival player plays the game and their disc lands on the number 5 then they receive a Big Fun carnival prize.
Additional Hints & Tips:
Note: if this game is at a fundraising carnival, choose prizes similar in value (and inexpensive) like carnival prizes under 10 cents or prizes under 20 cents for the numbers 1, 2 and 3 and a higher valued prize for 5 as it is less likely to be won.
