Makers Manual #45: ⁠Analogue Box Game

Shigeki Fujishiro

Makers Manual is a collaborative project between exciting makers and STORE STORE. These downloadable manuals are a practical guide to making at home for beginners and experts.

In this manual we will make a game of rolling a ball in a paper box. I will show you one example, but the basic structure is up to you. The rules are very simple and the goal is to be able to hold 3 balls in 3 holes at the same time. The space is divided into two levels, with pitfalls here and there. After falling into a hole, you can go up to the second floor from the ramp as many times as you want. The materials are paper boxes with a little stiff paper to make the second floor. When making things it’s important to savor each side of the game, as a maker when you are making it and as a player when you are playing it.
