A wooden board game based on the principles of Shove Ha’penny but with a subtle difference, it is played from both ends of the board. Using genuine ha’pennies, it is a game demanding skill and a bit of luck.
The boards are hand-made in English Oak from the Stourhead Estate in Wiltshire. All are hand made with attractive inlay. A wonderful quality game that makes a teriffic gift.
The brass pins come in a box, whilst the ship ha’pennies are original coins of the realm and are provided in a soft leather purse.
The board is placed on a table at right angles to the two contestants, who sit opposite each other and take it in turns to strike a coin from the edge of the table along the board. The object of the game is to place a ha’penny in each ’bed’ between the lines.
A full set of rules are included.
