The fast action of crokinole brings people together. For hundreds of years people have gathered around masterfully crafted crokinole sets for the chance to do battle and share laughs. But because the shape, contour, finish, and material of every board makes a huge impact on gameplay, it’s almost impossible to find a “bargain” play set. Of course, investing in crokinole means starting a new tradition, among family, friends, or even patrons, that can be passed down through generations.

What to look for when buying a crokinole board
A quality board should come totally finished with no surface bumps or distortion. The board and discs should come fully waxed (we use 100% Brazilian Carnauba Wax) to ensure smooth, fast-paced gameplay. You’ll also want to choose a set complete with spare pegs, in case any of the original break over time. Finally, look for fully finished surfaces, including the table’s face and ditch. We apply five coats of lacquer and wax sealant to every set to reduce scuffing or scratches.
