Baseball Cap Game for Morons

convert your baseball cap into a fascinating game

In order to create your own Baseball Cap Game for Morons you will need the following items:
One baseball cap
One short section of fine catgut
One small ball-bearing with a hole drilled through its centre
One electric drill and two bits of differing diameters

To convert the cap:
Attach the ball-bearing to the front of the baseball cap using the fine catgut, so that it can roll about freely over the surface of the projecting peak, (the bit that shades the face and eyes).
Drill two holes in the peak, at any two points on the surface, each of which must be reachable by the roving ball-bearing.

Now all you have to do as you walk along or sit about mindlessly, is tilt and swivel your head around in such a way as to get the ball-bearing to drop through one of the holes. Once you have got it through one, you can award yourself a point, then flick it back out with a triumphant toss of the head, and try to get it to drop through the other hole.

You may add more rules to the game, and once you get good at it, progress to the more advanced version featuring two ball-bearings!

       //Morons// Is it me, or is [xenzag] getting angrier? I hope you're OK, [xen].

       Not angry at all - in fact most happy and delighted with my new idea. I just made one up and it works a treat.

       I am pleased to see that the ingredients list does not include "moron". Rather, it states "you will need...".

       Perhaps call it "ball in a cap"? Once the ball goes down one hole, players can also try to get the ball bearing to go "up" out the other hole, with the ball ending up back on the cap's bill. That would be impressive, even for someone who isn't a moron.

       I fear Gamma's suggestion may result in long hospital queues of Morons with ball bearings lodged in various facial apertures.

       Perversely while this might make you look like a moron it would take quite some skill to get good at it.

       Might also get kids to wear them with the peak facing forward! <grumble, grumble...>

       I suppose the opposite of this would be a ball maze on top of a mortar board. If you can get the ball to the slot at the edge, it drops down and becomes the dangling tassel.
