Seems to be an outpouring of press on crokinole. And about time too, eh?
Check out this article hailing from Lindsay (that would be the town, not any particular person you might know.)
It's not about tournaments and Tavistock per se and some of it is background stuff you read in every article on crokinole. However take note that it seems to refer to crokinole as being played in doubles and that each player gets five (5)
discs. This is something I recently heard mentioned on the boardgame geek blog (www.bgg.com) as well.
Interesting. would that be a metric thing, maybe?
Enjoy (and learn),
