In my Facebook, like two weeks ago, I posted a message and there I put a drawing (cortesy from Jim) where is showing some kids playing this game.

Maybe ta0 could help us to drag that photo until here.  :)

Looks very similar the the Skittles game that is made in the US.  I like the fact that there are two different styles here......and both are different from what I am familiar with!!!  Very nice.

It just hit me that I have an old wooden game collecting dust in the basement.  It is called "Nok Hockey" and it is made by a company called Carrom.  There are a number of pictures of the board on the internet.  I have had it for years (20?) and it was a slight hit for a time with my family.  I remember thinking about throwing it out several times.

After reading these posts I brought the board upstairs, dusted it off and started throwing some of the smaller Spintastic tops in it.  Everyone is gone from the house (spring break in Florida without me) so I have it on the dining room table and can make as much noise late in the evening as I want!  I also have some small wooden bowling pins (about two inches tall) and put them in the surface.  It has been fun to knock them down.

Tomorrow is my day off (the first one in several weeks) and I plan on doing some more "skittle like" action with this old board.  Seems like there are lots of possibilities with it.

Thanks for starting this thread, Ludo!

Here is the photo Huitzi wanted to post:



It is a nice drawing from a chocolate wrapping showing an antique "skittles" table, or Toupie Hollandaise. Actually, Huitzi will get the chance to play with two very nice full-size tables soon, chez Mr. Cyril.  8)
