Description Edit | History

This game is like shuffleboard in the round. Players take turns flicking disks on a board, trying to score points by attaining central regions. The main stipulation being that contact with the other teams' pieces must be made in order for the disk to remain on the board afterward. Although the game uses quite a bit of skill to flick the disks, there's a very significant strategy element to the game. There are many different variants and rules, as this game is very old and has had many different incarnations over the years.

History

The game is of uncertain origin, however the oldest authenticated board was made by Eckhardt Wettlaufer of Sebastopol, Ontario, Canada (near Tavistock) in 1876, and the game has remained particularly popular among Canadian Mennonites. It was patented in 1880. It is also called Pichenotte.

The World Crokinole Championship (WCC) is held in Tavistock, Ontario, Canada each June. The current WCC Champion is Brian Cook of Toronto, Ontario.

These are clearly written rules, formatted between scoring holes. You can print it on a label, stick it to wood (we stick it to our disc storage cover), cover it with clear contact paper, and drill peg holes for scoring.

15 Quick history and rules cards
Use these cards to hand out to people that have never seen the game and are curious. Print landscape and two per page then flip the page over and print the other side. That way you can cut down the middle so each side will have all the information. Take them with your board down to the pub and hand them out when you are playing so you can take more time taking your shots instead of explaining this great game to people.
