Okay, listen, /r/boardgames, we need to have a heart-to-heart. Every time this comes up you bitch and moan about how you'd loooove to try Crokinole but just can't briiiing yourself to pay so much for a fancy board.

And y'know what, I get it. I feel your pain. Crokinole is an awesome game. It's extremely intuitive yet difficult to master, frustrating yet exhilarating, timelessly fast and simple, good for families and competitive gamers alike, and compulsively replayable. It is one of the three board games I have ever gotten my ADD-yet-ruthlessly-practical mother to admit enjoying, and it is one of only two games that my frighteningly competitive wife will ask to play without any prompting and still love me after we are finished playing. But you don't have to drop 200 bucks on a schmancy board just to see if it's something you might like (even though you will like it).

Those dinky little multi-game boards that you can find on the internet and in your grandfather's attic and the local thrift store work just fine, and will give you hours and hours of perfectly good play, at a cost that's way less than what you'd pay for a greased-up carved-wood board.

And what's more, if you do like it (and you will), then you can always upgrade to the fancy board and give the old one to your four-year-old nephew or something, without any regrets. Which leads into my second point, which is that speaking of regrets, I know that you routinely spend 200 dollars and more on those big-box CMON games that you never have a chance to play, just for the privilege of seeing those crappy little injection-molded plastic bits languish forever poised for battle yet never satisfied on your top shelf.

You will play Crokinole. You will like Crokinole. When you pull Crokinole down off of the shelf, all of your friends will smile instead of cringing and girding their loins. Don't you need a game like that? You do. Search your feelings. You know it to be true. Come back to the light side. Nobody wants to play Malifaux with you. Buying Blood Rage will only make you happy for a moment, and that moment will slowly turn sour the longer you try to find someone to play with you. You will pass Crokinole on to your grandchildren someday.

Cokinole was what sent me on my research into dexterity games. The price point is a factor though as I've seen most boards start at $150.

I did come across this on Amazon though. While it's not a dedicated and proper Crokinole board, it seems to be a great entry level one to test the waters.

I had one when I was a kid and we used to play it all the time. The only time I ever see them any more is in antique stores, but you can get a new one from Amazon that's very inexpensive:

It's a carrom board.
