The game I have was developed by William Roscher...probably in the 70s...and could be a prototype...perhaps never reaching full production.

The game consists of a 17" X 19" pegboard with 1105 game holes and 96 scoring holes. The holes run vertical, horizontal and diagonally. There are two color sets of pegs...one for each team.

It's a two team game where teams insert (their) colored pegs into the board in an attempt to get at least five pegs in succession. The more pegs in succession...the higher the points awarded.

Any additional information you may have on this game would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Sounds like you have a very unusual game that could be added to the BGG database. It would be interesting to see some photos, if you would upload some to your personal gallery.

It also has some embossing...'Five Plus' in the center...and (for keeping) 'Score' along both edges.

Seems like a version of 4 in a row, or tic tac toe if you will.
5 Plus or 5 in a row is just a bit harder to get.
Played something like this, but on paper instead of a board like this.
