Our giant version of the classic ball-drop game comprises three large pieces: a lid, a cylindrical wire cage, and a base with lumber legs. The doubled-up plywood rings that make up the base and lid consist of two rings of different sizes—a small one that nests snugly in the rim of the wire cylinder and a larger one that covers the top and bottom edge of the cylinder. To play, thread the plant stakes at odd angles through the middle of the cylinder, dump the balls in from the top, and see who has the magic touch needed to remove stakes without letting the balls slip through.
