Crokinole is a Canadian game invented in the 1870s and we have the only full-size boards in the UK. It is a fantastic game whether played seriously or by just as a family game for fun. Points are scored by flicking disks as near to the central hole as possible. The added twist that makes the game so engrossing is that your disk must move the disk last flicked by your opponent.
Note from James Masters, the owner of Masters Traditional Games: Crokinole is one of my favourite table games and my Canadian Crokinole board is often brought out after dinner to play with friends. Importing the boards from Canada is quite an undertaking but it's worth it to bring full-size, high quality Crokinole boards to Britain & Europe. I hope you enjoy the game as much as I do.
Americans and Canadians argue over the descent of Crokinole. The balance of the argument though is that the game originated in Canada. The oldest American Crokinole board has a patent number dated 1880 although the patent looks somewhat dubious as the official record hasn't been found... By contrast the oldest claimed Crokinole board is held by the Joseph Schneider Haus Museum in Ontario and which is dated 1876.
This Jaques Crokinole game comes with 30 stained wooden disks.
We have a few spare sets of wooden Crokinole disks. Note that these Crokinole pieces are only suitable for full-size boards and will not fit the smaller Jaques Crokinole. Sorry but we do not have red or green Crokinole discs any longer.
