Some may be familiar with the game in the popular show, Westworld, but did you know it was based on an actual game?

Toymaker Charles Crandall invented the game "Pigs in Clover" in 1889. While he waited for his patent, competitors brought out very similar versions of the game. Eventually, Crandall's game, produced at his Waverly Toy Works, enjoyed great success and became something of a best-seller. But similarly-named games made by his competitors took away some of his profits. Pigs in Clover became the subject of political cartoons and rumor said that even President Harrison played the game. -- Museum of Play

This is a perfect model to use those wood filaments! I highly recommend FormFutura's Cedar EasyWood; the aroma and feel accentuate the nostalgia of the toy.


In the zip contains the imagery formatted to fit on the lid. I used a thin layer of tacky glue to fasten the picture. This is a good time to glue the center cap on the base of the game. After the glue dries overnight, a coat or two of Clearcoat spray protects the finish of the picture and adds to the aesthetics. Drop in a few glass marbles or steel bearing and you are ready to herd some pigs to the center!

Good luck, it's not as easy as you think!!
