Ok, here's how it works.  You work during the week and on Tuesday, you post what you made.  It's a way of getting more folks interested in this board.  If nobody is interested, I won't do this again.  But for today, here's my post for Toybox Tuesday.

It's an old fashioned board game which I made from a chunk of plywood and a dowel.  It's called Nine Men's Morris and it's played similar to Tic-tac-toe.  I painted a pattern on it, because I really don't like the look of plywood.

I remember this game - My Dad made me a version of this years and years ago!! Your execution of it is great - I like the painted board. I want to play! I want to play!

So for ToyBox Tuesday, do we post things we've made in this thread? I love the idea. I'm not sure I have a toy to post this week - I'll have to dig through my craft pictures and see what I can come up with Smiley.

At this point I would say post whatever you have, just so we can get this started. 

And, yes, post in this thread.

I found a little toybox guy that I haven't posted yet Smiley.

My offering for ToyBox Tuesday is a zombie frog sock doll named Henson. I made him for the Creepy Cute swap a few months ago.





Hope you like him!

Jerpie!! What an adorable little guy. The details are so impressive. I love how you did the ears and his facial expression is priceless. What is his body made out of? It looks so soft. Perfect for a baby.

Thank you for sharing him!!

What an awesome idea!  And this will make me start making more things so I have them to pass out at Christmastime! Smiley

I made this little snake thing and was going to "drop it" for The Toy Society, but my friend's son came over and loved it so much, that I had to send it home with him.

I guess I am a day late, but here is my post. I recently made this fox and geese board game for a swap.

I have a couple I made for myself years ago, nine man's morris, fox and geese, and a preprinted backgammon and checkers boards. Board games are timeless and for every age. I am hoping to get into puppet making again and have plans to make a viking doll. I also need to make a gnome for the gnomes garden shed I made.
 I have made one poppet, but prefer rag dolls. I am curious how that will  translate into a viking. Unfortunately, this month is swamped so it may be a while for another post.

Better late than not at all.  Be watching for this next Tuesday and every Tuesday.

And for those of you who wish to participate, you don't need to wait for me.  If you have something to post next Tuesday, put it up.  The heading should look like this:
"Toybox Tuesday, MM/DD/YY (insert the date there)"

That way we can keep track of how often we actually get this posted.  We want to make it a weekly affair, but if I'm out of town, I may not be able to jump in and start the thread.

Ysmeine - that gameboard is beautiful! Did you embroider all of that? The peacock-ish looking feathers are GOREGEOUS.

Your little gnome garden shed is adorable. You definitely need to get a little gnome to work in there.

Home made wooden board games rock. I remember my grandfather's peg board games and I also remember loving them!
He also drilled out holes in a grid and gave me painted bits to make patterns. I loved that toy!

Embroidered board games are a brilliant idea. It's even washable. I think I might give that a go. Snakes and ladders maybe?

There is a version of snakes and ladders that i want to try. I prefer medieval games, but others are fun. I did embroider the board, they are supposed to be phoenix feathers. This one has a matching wooden box and shell pieces. My others have pouches that hold the board and playing pieces. easier to travel.

This is a cool thread. I'm late to this as I found it through Craftster's Facebook page (which I don't check nearly enough) but I'm definitely going to post next week. I've got a ton of toys that I need to get started working on for Christmas! I love this thread idea! Cheesy

Here ya go.  Have fun.

The game
   The game is divided into two different stages.

First Stage
   Each player starts with nine pegs of his own color.  In turn, each player places one peg into a vacant hole on the board.  If a player forms a row of three of his/her own pegs, it is called a mill, and he/she may remove one of his/her opponents pegs from the board.  Pegs which are in a mill may not be removed.

Second Stage
   When all 18 pegs have been placed into play, each player takes turns moving his/her pegs, one per turn, to an adjacent vacant hole.   The pegs may only be moved along the lines.
   As in the first stage, players are trying to form a mill, or three in a row, and therefore attempt to remove the opponents peg.  Again, any peg already in a mill may not be removed.
   A mill may be broken (a peg moved away) and then reformed (the same peg moved back again on the next move) any number of times.
   When a player has reduced his/her opponent to two pegs, he/she has won the game.  Alternatively, a player may also win by blocking the pegs of the other player in a manner so that he/she is unable to move.
