Tennessee-based maker Kyle (aka Shadowman39) spent over year constructing a full-size skeeball machine from K’NEX building toy pieces. This incredible machine is functioning, coin-operated and counts points with a mechanical counter. Take a look at all of his images on Instructables and see it in action in this video.
This game is a lot of fun to play, for me and my family (my dad has the highest score, over 400 points). I’ve only scored in the 1000 point hole 2 times, and I haven’t seen anyone else score that one, so it’s very hard to get the ball there. Playing time for one game is about 1:30, plus how long it takes to throw eight balls.
