Shoot Smaug - The Game


This is a tutorial on how to make the game "Shoot Smaug". I have two versions of this game. In this tutorial I show you how to put together the easier game. It is where smaug sits on his pile of gold and you shoot him. If you get him the arkenstone falls out of the treasure chest. LOL! Does it get more fun than that?

Take turns with a friend to see who can get Smaug first.

The templates are right here:

The template for version 1 of the game is here

The template for version 2 of the game is here

I also have a video tutorial on this project at the bottom of the page.

Will has a youtube channel with over 700 videos on projects you can make. Check it out right here



This Shoot Smaug game goes hand in hand with my tutorial on how to make the Dwarven Windlance like you see in the movie. All you need to make that project is a sheet of foamboard, glue and some rubber bands:

Version 2


Version 2 of this game with the swinging pendulum is right here.


Smaug the dragon

Print up the template and cut out just the colored pieces. They are smaug, the gold pile, two arkenstones and the treasure chest. Note about the gold pile: Cut out that whole large full sheet size. Don't cut out just the half page with the gold. There is a dotted line on that piece. We will cut on that line later.


The colored pieces

Okay! All the colored pieces are cut out. Notice that the piece with the gold pile is not cut on the dashed line yet.


Trace onto foam board

Now place all the pieces, including the colored pieces, on foam board and trace out all the lines. Press down firmly. We are transferring the shapes to foam board by creating an indent.


Strengthen the lines

Now you can remove the sheets and pieces and see all the indented lines. Draw them out.


The pieces are traced

There you go! The pieces are traced. There are eleven pieces.


The cut out pieces

The pieces are cut out.


Glue the base

Glue together the three pieces of the base. In the template these pieces are labeled side 1, side 2 and base.


Cut on dashed line

Take the piece marked as Top and cut along the dashed line. Only cut through the top layer of paper. Don't actually cut the piece in half!


The base is made

Fold that top piece and glue it right onto the base assembly you made.
