Made in Britain

We believe that these shove Ha'penny boards are the best quality that are presently available anywhere. The Oak version of the board is made from from two or more planks of solid Oak timber beautifully finished and varnished to allow the smooth running of coins. Hand-made in Britain by a traditional craftsman.

The beds are delineated with grooves running across the board. Therefore disputes involving coins that are just touching a line can be resolved by running a straight edge (e.g. a credit card) down the groove. If the coin moves, it was not within the bed!

The board is therefore also suitable for competitions and tournaments.

Although not shown in the picture, the board does have a wooden retaining bar fixed to its underside that wedges against the table to prevent the board from moving about when in play.

Each board comes complete with a set of 5 un-smoothed ha'pennies. They work as they are but some people like to smooth them with emery cloth to make them glide better. Chalk is not included. Comes with rules.

Care of shove ha'penny boards

We sometimes get asked how best to maintain the smooth surface on our Shove Ha'penny boards. Generally speaking they will do fine without any regular cleaning or maintenance. However, it wouldn't hurt to give them the occasional polish. We would suggest using a good quality beeswax polish applied sparingly with a cloth so as to not fill the lines between the beds. Leave for a few minutes and then buff off with a clean soft polishing cloth.

Be sure not to put wax onto the black painted scoring sections - otherwise using chalk to mark score becomes a problem.
