Anyone know where I can get a razzle flat joint game? Uhhh for demonstration purposes only. Yeah, yeah. That's the ticket.

Ummmm, make one.

They might be out there floating around, I've seen a few on e-bay...


Razzle is a devistating game, and amazing to see worked.

Google razzle dazzle carnival games...there is some information available. You will probably have to make your own board whether it is darts or a roll-down.

Remember, you have six darts that can score 1-6 points each. On the first throw if they got all sixes that would total 42 points and get them off to a running start. Of course any other throw would also total 42 points as the blue darts are double, the red darts are triple, and the white darts are single. That means you got 16 and 5 and 3 and 17 and 2 and 5...forty two points...it takes but a second.

Some points will move you forward and some won't in various ways...the rules are clearly posted to the side and above eye level.

Then of course there are times when you play the next time free and other times where you don't...

Bring bail money.

While on RBBB playing atlantic city's boardwalk hall there was a razzle joint down on the pier...my buddy in the show lost over 200 clams knowingly just to get a freakin' Muppets Monster Doll...that's one expensive piece of plush...he even went to the atm to get more money to keep the game in play....ouch....then on the way back to boardwalk hall we took a ginty cab (picture Chris Farley & John Candy in a push cab) right infront of Trump AC a cop car came out of an alley arrested our cabbie and left us zipped in the rig! Ah the memories!

I have googled Razzle and found some photos of boards and such--in fact, I did that before I posted this message. My issue really is what are the dimensions for each slot. I have a stunningly extensive collection of carnival game books--all of which reveal how they work, none of which reveal the dimensions (with enough specificity to build a game)--e.g. how big is that spot supposed to be? What is the incline for roller bowler?

I may look in the Bunco Book and Billion Dollar Bunko when I unpack, but I don't recall ever seeing dimensions (except for Cover the Spot aka Spot the Spot).

I need specifics!

Do you really? Seems to me the hard part is the presentation - the dimensions can be worked out with a little effort and a little easy trial and error (you don't have to build the whole thing to work out the angle, for instance)

On the other hand, build a perfect board and fail to sell the whole process, and...


PS - I wouldn't 100% trust the one on my goodmagic site.

Haa haa haa, I love the honesty.

I bet Todd knows specifics...


I know a few folks that have run Razzle joints, I'll ask around.

I once asked a guy what angle you put the peach basket at. He said you just try till you get it right.

I think it might be the same here. This isn't a problem if you do a dart board...just make the squares only big enough for one dart.

Jeremy, good luck.

It's a bit out of my rage at this time. Ugh. I think I might need a "real" job.

Replace the back panel with glass.
You could work a mark in front of the audience,
exposing the gaff Penn&Teller style.

I think that most Razzle boards are 'home made'. As far as to the size, that depends of the type of Razzle you want to do and the size of the objects your going to use.
