Quarter Bounce

John Hamelink's avatar John Hamelink

When I signed up for ArtPrize this year I knew I was going to enter another neat little wooden boat but I had an idea to add a twist. My thought was to make a new simple type of game that could be used at large public events as a way to raise funding for selected charities. The game works like this. Build a gigantic aquarium, and position boat floating in the tank at the start of the game. Miniature oars would be positioned on platforms surrounding the tank and used as flippers to launch coins into the boat. Anyone attending the event may play the game and enter a guess of how many coins it will take to sink the boat. The game ends when the boat sinks from the weight of the coins. The person who guesses the number of coins to sink the boat keeps the boat and the coins would be donated to charity. Quarter Bounce will be a different fun new way of raising funds for charity. This entry shows my idea complete with the mini oars minus the tank.
