Eric Miltenburg commented on Jacob Westerhof's blog post WOW, my first tournament.
"Thanks for your insightful review Jacob, it encapsulates all the finest features I like about the local NCA club run get-togethers.  In a big way the regular attendees help self-manage the tournament because they all are familiar with and…"

WOW, my first tournament.

WOW.  It was a really fun time.  My first crokinole tournament.  Crokinole is definitely a fun game for the family, but gather these families for a competition and you have a party.  I was a little apprehensive about the day.  It turned out to be a fun learning experience.I learned a lot about the game of crokinole.  If I thought that my new board was fast, I was amazed by the speed of the tournament boards.  So many boards in one place.  The wax that I thought was unimportant, plays a vital…See More

Jacob Westerhof replied to Bruce Baldwin's discussion Valid shot rule.
"We play it that any strike is a good strike, so as long your opponent is stuck, it doesn't matter how. (Yes, you can hit your disc first) We play that only those discs involved in a missed shot are removed, not necessarily all your discs, so…"

Jacob Westerhof replied to Bruce Baldwin's discussion Valid shot rule.
"Hi Bruce, When I read Rule 3, a "valid shot" indicates that you MUST strike an opposing man (either directly or indirectly) if there are any opponent discs on the board.  If you miss, then your disc is removed and any of your discs…"

Crokinole, Croquinole everywhere.....

Don't you have those moments when something becomes relevant to you, they seem to pop up everywhere.  If someone you knows buys a red pickup, every other vehicle on the road is a red pickup.  When, a friend mentions a particular app for their phone, you start to notice that all your acquaintances are using that app.Well the same seems to have happened to me.   Just before Christmas, I got this inspiration to have a family crokinole board, so I put one on my list and let my wife know of several…See More

"Look forward to meeting you in Tavistock, or perhaps at T.G H tournament. Weather permitting I will be there.  Missed last year because of the storm. Be careful, crokinole can be addictive !  :)"

"Hi Ken,  Welcome to the forum.  We spoke yesterday, so I am glad to see that you are "online" now.  @Rueben indicated he has several boards and willingness to join as well in Grimsby.  Jacob"

Crokinole alive across Canada

Over the last several months, I got interested in Crokinole again.  Having grown up with a board in the house, it was a fun game between family members and crossed generational gaps with games with grandparents happening at all special occasions.  My brother and I are into any games where we can complete, so we played crokinole, mastermind, monopoly, shuffleboard and many other games endlessly.The game of crokinole is simple enough to allow anybody to play and spectators often have just as much…See More
