I’ve had my Mayday 2013 board for about two months, and here are some impressions...

Customer Service -- First, I was a Kickstarter backer for the project. The real selling point was the price of the board with shipping included. I am not a huge Kickstarter sort of person...but this seemed like a very good opportunity. Mayday communicated well to customers through the process, and from my perspective, the project seemed to go without much fuss. The one little thing that did go wrong was that the boards shipped with just 12 (and not 14) of the standards discs. Having kids, extras are a necessity. I just read that these are now being shipped so that all customers will receive their extras. Woohoo!

Score -- 9.5


Quality -- I must admit that I was hesitant, given the issues with previous versions. However, the board is great. Mine came with a few very minor scratches - and I mean very minor. Now, I am not a Crokinole expert, but it seems to me that one would be hard-pressed to find this good of quality for this pricepoint.

Score -- 9.5


Fun Factor -- This has been a hit every time it has hit the table -- definitely the kind of game that everyone says, “Just one more round.” It is loads of fun (except when my boys gang up against Dad!) That, to me, is the definition of a great game.

Score -- 10

Now, this might not be for everybody -- whether it’s the cost, or, that it’s a dexterity game, or, that it’s not a game by Stephan Feld. If you want a good game that scales well for 2-4 players, is laugh-out-loud fun, and is so easy to learn, Crokinole is the game for you.
