Crokinole Boards & Crokinole accessories
Crokinole is a Canadian game invented in the 1870s and it's a fantastic game whether played seriously or just for fun. Points are scored by flicking disks as near to the central hole as possible. The added twist that makes Crokinole so engrossing is that your disk must move the disk last flicked by your opponent. We have the only full-size, full-specification Crokinole boards in the UK.
Note from James Masters, owner of Masters Traditional Games: Crokinole is one of my favourite table games and my Crokinole board is often brought out after dinner to play with friends. Importing these full-size, high quality Crokinole boards with their beautifully smooth playing surface is quite an undertaking but certainly worth it. I hope you enjoy the game as much as I do.

Americans and Canadians argue over the descent of Crokinole. The balance of the argument though is that the game originated in Canada. The oldest American Crokinole board has a patent number dated 1880 although the patent looks somewhat dubious as the official record hasn't been found... By contrast the oldest claimed Crokinole board is held by the Joseph Schneider Haus Museum in Ontario and which is dated 1876.
