Re: The best crokinole board makers

While I don't own a board, I've played on numerous boards.  Oddly, the one I liked playing on was the least
attractive (and as I remember, the most expensive).  The playing surface wasn't wood, but more like a
light-colored Masonite surface.  It had no grain.  The wood grain, as much as it made the boards more
attractive, tended to affect the glide of the pieces.  That is, the carom would tend to break along the
grain.  This was with or without silicon powder.  Just my 2 cents.

The Willard is a no frills serious board and the Hilinski is the "friends and guests" board that hangs on the
family room wall as art. It usually gets a comment or two and best of all there is the occasional question
"Whats that?"...best way I've found to get new players. (not many in North east PA)
