Made in Britain
A nicely made Shove Ha'penny board constructed from wood and made by a traditional craftshop in Britain. Includes five real old half pennies, scoring chalk and instructions.
In this very old traditional pub game, players attempt to push old English ha'pennies up a board so that they fall between the horizontal lines. You need to get 3 strikes in each bed to win the game. But beware - if you've completed a bed any further coins will score for your opponent.
In some versions of Shove Ha'penny, players replay any scoring coins - which makes a more engrossing game because breaks of several goes can be built in the same manner as for snooker.
This board has a veneer surface and printed lines. It is not recommended for tournaments or competitions but is the perfect option for playing at home or to have behind the bar in a pub for families and casual play.
The coins supplied are ordinary ha'pennies. They work as they are but you can smooth them with emery cloth to make them glide better.
Note: Please do not attempt to polish the board with a cleaning fluid containing chemicals as this may remove the lines.
Contains small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
