It's the best board game you've never played. Crokinole is a classic game originating in 1876 in Perth County, Ontario, Canada. It was made by craftsman Eckhardt Wettlaufer as a birthday present for his son, and became a widespread fad after the 1880s. The game board carries a rustic, simple aesthetic with beautiful wooden construction and finished to allow for long distance slides for your discs. Play involves players taking turns flicking one disc each towards the center of the board, however after the first disc is on the board, the player must hit another disc in subsequent turns. Otherwise you must discard your disc and it doesn't count for any points. First to 100 points wins! You'll love the depth and strategies you can develop while learning a fairly simple game.
