Masters Games is proud to bring you what we believe is the first and only commercially available version of Ringing the Bull ever produced.
Ringing the Bull, a traditional game which probably goes back to the middle ages, can still be found in the occasional pub right across England. A version of it is also played around the Caribbean where it is known as 'Bimini Ring'. Originally, the game was played with a real bull's head for a target - our version is slightly less realistic but is still a highly diverting pastime.
The idea couldn't be simpler - you swing a ring on a string across the room at a hook embedded in the wall. It's harder than it looks but practice makes perfect and the ring makes a decidedly satisfying 'clunk' when you manage to hit the target. Players take turns and the person with the most 'ringers' wins - or maybe the person with the least buys the drinks...
For pubs, it's a good talking point and locals can take the game quite seriously - you could organise the occasional competition. For people at home, it is a superb ice-breaker at parties and no-one can walk past without having a quick swing.
Our new improved version of the game looks great and is the solid, well-made product that you would expect from Masters Traditional Games.
Dimensions of board: 28 x 36cm (~11 x 14 inches)
