I ordered my crokinole board at 10:00pm Wednesday night and it arrived today on Saturday! Now that's service!

The Hilinski crokinole board I ordered is named "Tiger."

You can find a photo here if you are interested... http://www.hilinski.net/woodgames/crokinole_gallery/Tiger.jp...

A big "THANK YOU" to the Geeks who suggested which Crokinole board to buy! Some of you suggested buying a Hilinski board and after considering a number of different boards it finally came down to the price and uniqueness of the Hilinski. The Tiger staring out of the 20 hole closed the deal!

My nephew flew into to town this week and he, my brother, and I have been having a blast playing Crokinole. We needed something to play between games of El Grande, Blue Moon, and Domaine.

Anyway thanks again to the Geeks for your recommendations and have a great weekend!

Goodnight,
Steve

I don't know about that board in particular, but most of their boards sell for about $125 plus shipping (works out to just under $150 total)

I bought a Crokinole board from the Hilinskis some time ago, and I am quite happy with it.

A friend has bought three boards from the Hilinskis and said they changed their pricing recently. He said they used to charge $125 plus the cost of packing materials and shipping and to make things simpler they now charge $135 plus shipping with the cost of the packing materials included in the price of the board. As I recall, the packing materials for his first board cost a little over $10, so the prices are essentially the same as before.
