Penny Pitch Ice Carving

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 16 March 2020 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

An "interactive" ice carving that we came across. I didn't understand the goal until someone said that you try to land a coin on one of the five landings/platforms. Took a few tries, but I managed to land a penny.

Spotted at the Ice Carving Festival in downtown Downers Grove, Illinois on February 8, 2020.

How clever is that, Steven! Just think of the fun someone has in collecting the pennies. :)

Took a few tries, but I managed to land a penny. What did you win? an ice cube? :)
An interesting concept, nicely captured

Cool...literally. In Canada it would have to be nickel pitch; we don't have pennies any more.

simple but fun, if the play was for quarters, the carver might accrue a significant sum.

This is a fabulous ice carving! Seems like it would be hard to do with the icy slick surface!

Since the surface of the platforms is slippery, coins easily slide off.
It's a wily game.
