Crokinole

The kids bought their dad this game a few years ago, it was a favourite from his childhood.  It is similar to a hearty and rustic tiddly-winks.

I just mention it because I cleared off a table to play this later tonight.

People will come from strange lands to hear me speak my words of wisdom. They will ask me the secret of life and I will tell them. Then maybe I'll finish off with a song. The Nomad

Looks good, but Amazon charge  around £270 for a decent board.  May have to make one.

Good project for the winter.

The kids paid about $100 here for a sturdy board, but it was one of those things cheaper to pick up in a game store than on Amazon (that free postage really isn't)
