Crokinole Game - Quintessentially Canadian!

Regular price $60.00

How to describe this Canadian game?!  Wikipedia tries: "Crokinole is a dexterity board game similar in various ways to pitchnut, carrom, marbles, shove ha'penny, knipsbrat, with elements of shuffleboard and curling reduced to table-top size!"  Whew!

Crokinole is a fast-paced game of skill which appears to have originated in the 1860s in Canada. Quintessentially Canadian, the first crafted Crokinole board was made in 1876 by Eckhardt Wettlaufer in Perth County, Ontario. Eventually the board was patented by Joshua K. Ingals in 1880 and then manufactured, first in New York and later in Pennsylvania.

This Elf remembers playing many, many years ago with her Dad and big brothers.  We all LOVED crokinole!  Definitely a great addition for rainy days or family nights at your cottage or at home!
