Antique c. 1922 Carrom Crokinole Gameboard Game Board

Crokinole (pronounced croak-i-knoll, /ˈkɹokɪnol/ ) is an action board game similar in various ways to pitchnut , carrom , marbles , and shove ha'penny , with elements of shuffleboard and curling reduced to table-top size. Players take turns shooting discs across the circular playing surface, trying to have their discs land in the higher-scoring regions of the board, while also attempting to knock away opposing discs.

We bought this board game at an auction and didn't know what is was until someone in the audience told us. The book that came with it has a date of 1922 on the prices and the exact board is on the front so we assume the book was sold with it. As you see from the pictures t are 28 rings, 10 pens, 2 spinning tops and 6 discs. The pockets are in really good shape considering this age of this game. One has been repaired and one has two threads broke but the other two are intact. One side has pins in the board and three of those are missing. We found a website in Canada ( ) that sells the pins. The board is made of beautiful wood and has a nice shellac finish. This board would look really nice hanging in a game room but apparently t a lot of people especially in Canada that play this game. One side has a checker board and the other side is the one you use to shoot the disc (I assume) to play the game. Dimensions 2
