CROKINOLE CAN BE PLAYED ON THE CARROM GAME BOARD
Pronounced ‘crow-ki-nohl,’ the game originated in Ontario, Canada, and recently it has made a resurgence. However, the Carrom Company has been including this great game from the North on the reverse side of our Carrom Game Board since we began making them in 1897. The Carrom Company is the only mass production manufacturer who has been making a Crokinole game since we started way back when!
Crokinole is easy to play and easy to learn. It appeals to all age groups and different skill-levels can play together. You can team with a partner, play one-on-one, or you can even practice by yourself. It includes flicks and crashes and of course caroming along with finesse to avoid posts and to sink your disk or ring into a hole. It compliments perfectly with conversation and beverages, and it holds people’s attention even as spectators.
The Carrom® Game Board also features over 100 games, and the most popular being carroms on the other side of one beautiful, reversible wooden board. Featured games include carroms, backgammon, crokinole, pool, billiards, ring out, pins, checkers, chess, and so much more.

In the last quarter of the 19th century Henry Haskell, a Sunday School teacher, viewed with alarm the growing number of boys who loafed around pool rooms. (Ironically, the company would eventually manufacture pool tables.) Haskell had an inventive mind and he concentrated his thought on supplying a game which would appeal to these boys and supply wholesome enjoyment. Soon after, Haskell patented and introduced the U.S. Carrom game board. Produced at Ludington Novelty Works (Ludington, MI) of which he was part owner.
