Full Answer

When installing the rows of pegs, alternate between 10 and nine rows. Then, loop rubber bands into a varied path of triangles. For example, loop the first rubber band around the first pegs in the first three rows and the second rubber band around rows three, four and five. This creates a path for the chips to fall. Continue this pattern. Label the board with a title and dollar amounts, and decorate as desired.
