Crokinole Anyone?

This month I received my new Crokinole board.   Crokinole is a popular Canadian game that is kind of a mix between bocce and shuffleboard.  It's rumored to have started in the Mennonite/Amish community but there isn't any evidence of it.  More info can be found at Wikipedia.

Both of us ooh'd and aah'd at the niceness of the board and then tried a quick, partial game.  My wife ended up winning.  We played another quick, partial game.  Same result.  Third time... yep, she won again.  Thereafter she reported that she thinks she's going to like this game!

Over our Christmas break, I hope we get a chance to set an afternoon aside for a real tournament.  Then we'll see who wins :-)

Here's a good YouTube video about the rules.
