Rana or 'The Frog Game' is the classic game that can be seen in bars and town squares across Spain, France and South America (where is is often known as Sapo).
Related to the lesser known Sussex game of Toad in the Hole, the Frog game is a more ornate version that is probably the original direct ancestor of the English game.
As with most pub games, it's straightforward - you throw the disks and try to get them into the holes on the surface. There are all sorts of designs for the game - in Bilbao they play with just a single Frog - other versions are more elaborate with spinners and hoops.
The game board is made from a coated composition timber and is designed to stand on a table or desk. This is a home version of the game so it is not as big as games found in pubs at 28cm square. The pieces are made from wood rather than metal which should limit any damage to children and furniture and pets as well as the game itself. After each throw, the drawer is pulled out to retrieve any discs that have scored.
