Family Game Night with Tabletop #ShuffleBoard

Shuffle Board by CarromShuffleboard is a game that can be played tabletop or on surfaces literally the size of a deck.  While the origins are not known for certain, we do know that the game goes back at least 500 years in Europe.  Prior to receiving this tabletop version, I had only seen shuffle boards roughly the size of a pool table.  In the US, these range from 9 to 22 feet.  The object of the game is to slide your weight against your opponents weight to get the most points without falling off the board.  As one can imagine, originally the game was played on a long table.  Oh, the days of creativity!  If you are interested, there are a ton of articles about the history of Shuffleboard!  It’s fascinating to me!  :D

One thing I love about Carrom’s Tabletop Shuffleboard is that it is made in the USA.  Seems like these days we get most things from other countries, which is fine except that our own economy suffers for it.  Made in the good ole state of Michigan, Carrom makes some fine Quality Family Games!  As their logo promises, the Shuffle Board does seem to be made to last.  Assuming we manage to keep up with the pieces, I believe this will be a game that we play for many many years.  I do wish there was something built in to keep them from getting separated, but I suppose that’s where my craftiness comes in!

If you are looking for something to keep you or the kids busy, this Shuffle Board is a perfect way to do that.  I love the versatility of who could play it.  Since it isn’t incredibly difficult, it can be played by kids, the competitive aspect it brings out in trying to get just the right move will also entertain young adults on up.  In a slight rebellion against my position in life, I could also see this being a good drinking game.  I will admit that I say that with some serious shame.  LOL.  Guess those things get stuff in there and stick it out!  LOL

So let’s face it: we all love treats, young and old, animal or human.  A treat every now and then just makes us a little happier.  With 2 older Chihuahuas (ages 12 and 13) and a great dane with allergies, I’m a little picky about what treats I will provide for them.  It’s impossible to […]
