Want to make an even more compact, pocket-size foosball game? Here’s how.

Project Steps

Make the paddle arms.

Straighten 4 paper clips and bend them into the shape as shown, being sure to include a “V” near the center to act as a game paddle.

Notice the “hook” on alternating ends of each paper clip — this will prevent the paper clip paddles from sliding out of the paper clip guides.

Wrap some tape at the non-hook ends of each paddle to act as handle grips for each player.

Prepare the box.

Cut off the top flap of the paper clip box, and cut away a square section at each end of the box for the ball to eject.

Slide 8 paperclips onto the long sides of the box, 4 per side, evenly spaced.

Install the paddle arms.

Slide the 4 paper clip paddle arms into the paper clip guides on each side.

Toss the candy ball on the micro game board, and you’re ready to play.
