Here's a replacement bag. We sell 'em by the pound: the half-pound bag will get you an assortment of approx 35 colorful glass marbles of various styles, ranging from 9/16" to 1-5/16" dia, although most of them will be the smaller sizes.
Multiple game sets don't come any cheaper. You make a checkerboard and we'll supply the checkers. You get (3) sets of standard, 24-piece, 1-1/8" dia, black and red plastic checkers with the traditional grooves to make kinging easier. Nice rainy-day project for a passel of bored kids, checkerboard creation.
Bored with looking at bicycles on the back of your playing cards? Sick of that one-eyed jack and the king with the ax? Add a little fun to your gin rummy with these full-tilt theme cards. Regular 52 decks, plus jokers, poker size, but with some of your favorites on both the backs and faces. You pick: Bigfoot; Marilyn Monroe in all her movies; Star Trek stars; Harry Potter and friends; Marvel superheroes; Bacon recipes galore; or a whole kennel of Dachshunds.
New Sudokun hope for the English major or art student in your life. This clever, non-numeric Sudoku puzzle uses colors instead of numbers on the (9) 2” cubes with 1/2” squares. Position them in the tray so that no two colors are adjacent, and you win. Has two trillion (2,000,000,000,000) combinations and over 500,000 solutions. For ages 8 to adult, but frankly we don’t know why. From ThinkFun®.
Our each is a standard set of (28) cream colored, black divot dominoes, sized 1-7/8" x 15/16" x 5/16" thick. Includes a wooden case and a tiny sheet with the rules for Double-Six, one of the endless popular domino games.
Could be. You could put ten of them in there, plus a little bowling ball from the Pocket Bowling game. Features (10) 1-1/4” tall pins and a 5/8” dia steel ball, ready to roll down the 11-1/4” long x 4-5/8” wide rubberized lane. The good news? No foul line!
Half of the best stuff in the world comes in a can; the other half comes on a stick. (It’s true, don’t argue with us.) Now you get to pick from two kinds of canned fun, both in 5-5/8” x 4” x 2-1/4” deep cans with hinged tops. You pick. The Pranks in a Tin has straw finger traps, a whoopee cushion, nose & mustache glasses, a joy buzzer, the nail-through-finger trick with a bloody bandage, and a squirting ring. Go make a pre-adolescent happy. The Classic Games tin holds a standard deck of playing cards, rubber ball and (10) metal jacks, tiddlywinks with a small felt pad, (30) pick-up sticks, and (5) shooters plus (30) smaller glass marbles, and not an electronic game in the bunch.
Uwe Meffert is the Erno Rubik of the non-cubic universe. You decide which of his puzzles you want to be driven crazy by: the Pyraminx is a 3-7/8" pyramid with different colors on each face, if you can get them there. Rated 3 stars of difficulty out of 5. The Gearball is a baseball-sized sphere with (6) facets that you try to align in their appropriate color before you just throw it into the mean neighbor's yard. Rated 5 stars out of 5 for difficulty.
Ten furlongs are condensed to (7) inches, with very small horses, in the Desktop Derby, a 6-horse straight track that lets you win money while you teach the children the evils of pari-mutuel betting. The electric track pulsates and moves the nags along at a pace of about 45 seconds per race, with heart-stopping lead changes. The best part is that they're un-handicapable: a different horse, in a different lane, seems to win every time. Measures 9-7/8" x 3-1/2" x 2" high and runs off (2) "AA" batteries, included. (Stable the horses in the base between races.)
