Game Glimpse #8: Crokinole

8Crokinole is an action board game similar in various ways to pitchnut, carrom, marbles, and shove ha’penny, with elements of shuffleboard and curling reduced to table-top size. Players take turns shooting discs across the circular playing surface, trying to have their discs land in the higher-scoring regions of the board, while also attempting to knock away opposing discs.

  1. Mellowcow,

    I remember I played a bunch of those dexterity-based games made out of wood back in elementary school. The Game Glimpse format is really “snappy” and a quick way to get introduced to various games, inclusion of your children is very much appreciated. :3
    Dominion has indeed become a really popular game but it’s the first game my friends and I got upon listening to the three man/donkey podcast and we’re still hooked to it! Kill Dr. Lucky, Munchkin, and Pathfinder are also played on a regular basis and the Plants vs Zombies icon sits snugly on my iPod’s screen.
    That being said, will the longer podcast format return once in a while? The guests were always absolutely amazing and I’d hate to see it discontinued. Yes, I like walnut ice cream and yes, I like pistachio ice cream but to be honest, I want both. :D
    (btw I hope one day there’ll be a podcast episode where you’re the guest.)

    Best wishes from Switzerland!

    • Thanks for the feedback!

      We DO intend to keep up with the longer format podcasts, both with interviews and game topic discussions. It is, I think, a coincidence that they have dropped to zero while I have been exploring the game glimpse format – the holidays would have temporarily stopped the longer format podcasts in any case. We have been talking recently about resuming them. In the meanwhile, all we have to offer is walnut!
