I made the mistake this past July during the Gathering of Strangers Con in Utah of sitting down to try a Crokinole game. And not just on any board but on a Hilinski board. Specifically I played on the beauty owned by Mark "Renegade" Tyler here on BGG titled "Dark Dreams":



After that I have been watching their site weekly in hopes of capturing just the right board to match either my front room or my computer room. I was tortured often as would visit only to find a board that qualified had been sold not hours before I logged in to check. Victory finally came last week as a board with a cherry stain appeared and fortune shined as I was able to stake my claim first (BWHAHAHAHAHA).

Alas for the fact that its name (although I am sure significant to Stan) is simply "Shane". Not near as catchy as "Vigorous Denial", "Indiscretion" or "Wicked Smile" but - it looks to be a beauty.

Now I wait, with a target due date of December 4th for arrival. Tracking it hourly as it winds its way from Maryland to Utah...

Being LDS I won't have the opportunity to enjoy Drunken Crokinole, as Geosphere was able to, but I anticipate I will enjoy myself almost as much regardless...

Hurry up Fed-ex! Dangit!

Ah, I was not aware of the Western reference - I will have to go out and rent that movie it would seem :)

Or read the Jack Schaefer novel it was based on. That was actually required reading in my (I believe it was) 7th grade English class.

My board showed up about 7:20 last night. It was packed incredibly well and arrived in perfect condition. Love it!

Damn. "Shane" is my name. Have been considering making my own board, since I cannot afford one of theirs.

I have heard this game is a great deal of fun. Let me know how you feel.

Well, my wife got me the movie for my Birthday so I could know the history of my board. It is now hung on the wall next to it. Not a bad movie, although I must say that kid began to grate after a while :)
