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.
The boards consist of a 26″ diameter playing surface + 2 inch ditch + 1/4 inch rim = 30.50 inches in total diameter and 3 inches thick. The game will come double boxed in a box with dimensions of 34.5 X 34.5 X 4.5 Inches and weights in at a massive 17.4 pounds (7.9 KG).
