Mennonite Heritage Village Museum – The donor purchased this handmade Crokinole board at a family auction sale in Altona

Crokinole Board, unknown date

Crokinole has been popular among the Mennonites since its emergence in southern Ontario in the 1860s. It was likely adapted from the English parlour game “Squails”. Similar to curling, the object of the game is to flick your small wooden discs (using your thumb and forefinger) as close to the inner circle of the board as possible, and knock out any rival discs.

The donor purchased this handmade Crokinole board at a family auction sale in Altona. We don't know whether the family selling this had handed this down over the generations or purchased it themselves.
