How does the mini table play? Do you sell mini discs seperately, if so, what would cost be for a set shipped to US?

Thx!

Initially I was a bit cautious regarding the mini-board, but it actually plays very well after you've given yourself a couple of minutes to "reset" your hand to the lighter discs and shorter distances.

Right now I distribute concave/convex mini-discs, but we'll have flat discs soon.

Please PM me your email address and delivery address and I'll be happy to send you a quote.

What are the dimensions of mini-crokinole?

Is this a "standard" or just something by one company?

The measurements of the mini-board are as follows:
Playing area diameter: 520 mm / 20.5 in
Board diameter: 615 mm / 24.2 in
Disc diameter: 25 mm / 1 in

More info: http://swcu.be/shop/board-games/mini-crokinole-board/

To the best of my knowledge, the two most popular standards are:

1. playing area diameter: 660 mm / 26 in (called tournament/competition size e.g. http://swcu.be/shop/product-groups/competition-crokinole-boa...)
2. playing area diameter: 610 mm / 24 in (called traditional size, sometimes with an octagonal ditch e.g. http://www.muzzies.ca/traditional_fun.html)

The mini-board is even smaller with a playing area diameter of 520 mm / 20.5 in. I don't think this is a standard, but I would love this to become an affordable introductory board, especially for players in my region who in general have smaller houses and tables than those in North America. Even with smaller and lighter discs, it plays well and consistently and is much easier to stow away when not used.

Yeah. that's what I thought...

too heavy to give up that weight in the luggage! (though i'm not sure it would even comfortably fit in the luggage!

If I get enough people interested in a group order, I could arrange to have the boards shipped to BGG Con.

If I was only going to be there! After going to Essen, making another trip in a month's time isn't possible

Do each of the mini-boards come in their own box? I guess I could look into trying to ship it home on its own. Any idea of the dimensions of the box?
