Build a Pinball Machine with Dad This Father’s Day

Some dads love to build and fix things. Some dads love to compete. Some dads love to reminisce about simpler times. Now there’s a new game in town that may allow them to do all those things at once. All with the power of cardboard and rubber bands.

The PinBox 3000 is a build-it-yourself, made in the USA, cardboard tabletop pinball machine kit with interchangeable, customizable, play surfaces. It’s not just a product, but a path toward unplugged gaming, crafting and making that the whole family can enjoy.

How does it work?

Step 1: The PinBox 3000 arrives at your doorstep unassembled in twelve punch-out sheets of sturdy corrugated board. Assembly requires one hour of folding and slotting the parts together.


Step 2: Two interchangeable flipper decks allow you to prototype separate games, so bring out the glue and scissors!  Electronics can also integrate with the PinBox 3000, if you’ve got a knack for microprocessors like Arduino.

Step 3: Flip out with the PinBox 3000!  You can even link two games back-to-back and share in a two-player Battlemode!

Tabletops around the country are pushing the limits of this gravity-powered game system. Educators, do-it-yourselfers, crafters, and artists are also pitching in to launch the next generation of pinball game designers. By emphasizing the fun in STEM learning, educators engage students with the addition of games and art, with the PinBox 3000 as the platform.
