Deluxe Game Set vs. Connector Kit?
One of the most common questions we get is about the difference between the Deluxe Game Set and the Connector Kit.Â Here’s the info you’re looking for.
Deluxe Game Set
This version comes with height-adjustable legs, so you can play at 5, 6 or 7 feet for various age groups.Â We recommend 7 feet for 6th grade and above.Â The Deluxe Game also uses a locking system to secure the pipes inside the metal connectors.Â Each pipe has a button that snaps and locks into place inside the connector.Â This helps for quick set up and take down of the game.Â Also, the PVC used in the deluxe game set is custom-made for 9 Square in the Air.Â The material is stronger and more flexible than standard PVC.Â It also has a higher melting point, so Deluxe Game sets can withstand slightly higher temperatures than connector kits.
To save some cash and still have 9 Square in the Air for your group, the Connector Kit is the way to go.Â The Connector Kit will not come with height-adjustable legs or crossbars.Â The customer will purchase all the PVC for the game, and choose what length to cut the PVC for the legs.Â The kit comes with the same metal connectors as the Deluxe Game Set, plastic feet for the 16 legs, and thumbscrews to secure the pipes inside the connectors.Â Instead of the locking system that the Deluxe Game Set uses, the Connector Kit uses thumb screws which are tightened down on the pipe to provide a secure connection.Â The customer buys the PVC locally.Â Instructions for what kind of PVC pipe to buy, and what lengths to cut the pipe are included in the kit.Â (Cost of PVC is around $100).
