Description
 
This game is like shuffleboard in the round. Players take turns flicking disks on a board, trying to score points by attaining central regions. The main stipulation being that contact with the other teams' pieces must be made in order for the disk to remain on the board afterward. Although the game uses quite a bit of skill to flick the disks, there's a very significant strategy element to the game. There are many different variants and rules, as this game is very old and has had many different incarnations over the years.

History: The game is of uncertain origin, however the oldest authenticated board was made by Eckhardt Wettlaufer of Sebastopol, Ontario, Canada (near Tavistock) in 1876, and the game has remained particularly popular among Canadian Mennonites. It was patented in 1880. It is also called Pichenotte. The World Crokinole Championship (WCC) is held in Tavistock, Ontario, Canada each June. The current WCC Champion is Jon Conrad of Poole, Ontario.
