I played this game as a kid (around 1968) but can't remember the name. It had pieces that looked like the Rebound pieces, marbles with red and blue plastic rings around the marbles, and you slid them down a surface and tried to score points. Anybody know what game this is?

What makes it different from Rebound?

I have a game that has those rebound-style discs but it doesn't have the turnaround/rubber band of a proper Rebound set. It's just a 4-ish foot long board, with Curling markings on one side and Shuffleboard markings on the other. Mine was called "Munro Bonspiel Curling & Shuffle Board"

Shuffle Shot was a table-top shuffleboard game that used the pucks you describe. Both scoring ends were simple perpendicular lines denoting points zones (values 1, 2, and ending with 3.) No "triangle" scoring on this. The playing surface was surrounded by a baize covered ditch.

I got one on e-bay several years ago, and it gets pretty regular play at my house...usually when a couple of players have been eliminated from a game and are waiting to start another.

The Carrom folks made a shuffleboard set that used those rings. It was a fairly nice 4 foot long shuffleboard.

They still make it.
