Greetings, fellow denizens of the round board!

Browncastle Games is holding its annual charity tournament to support the Royal Kid's Camp on Saturday, February 17th. This is an immensely fun event featuring competitors of all skill levels. There will be a several sets of St. Jacob doubles games. A St. Jacobs doubles games has seven rounds, with players changing places in each round so that you will partner with every other player once. Individual score sheets are kept. After the St. Jacobs games are finished, the top two players from each game will become partners for a single-elimination tournament to determine the winner. Last year, Jim Gress and I attended, and had a great time. You can register and learn more details at https://www.browncastlegames.com/pages/events

Also, if you're in the mood for a longer drive for a higher-level event, the Extra Pint Crokinole Club's US Open doubles championship is coming up in late April in Voorheesville, NY, which is near Albany. That event attracts top players from the US and Canada. Registration will open after New Year's Day. Check https://extrapintcrokinoleclub.com/ for details.

Have a happy flickin' new year!

Welcome to the home of the Cleveland Crokinole Club!

What is Crokinole, you ask? I'm glad you asked! It's a game played o a circular board a bit more than two feet in diameter. Rings divide the board evenly into three concentric circles. The rim of the innermost circle has eight irritating pegs. There is a small hole in the center of the board. The object of the game is to propel disks a bit smaller than the hole towards, and hopefully into, the hole. However, if an opponent's disk is on the board, you have to hit their disk. For more information, look it up on YouTube. Especially check out Jeremy Tracey's set of Crokinole skills videos, and the Crokinole Centre (note the Canadian spelling) channel, featuring videos of the best players in the world meting in tournaments.

And what is the Cleveland Crokinole Club? It's a group of people who enjoy the game of Crokinole and who like to get together to play it! We meet on the second Wednesday (NOTE the new day!) of each month at Refuge Gaming, 1480 Pearl Road, Brunswick, at 6:00 PM until people feel like stopping. Cover charge is $5.00. And we also meet on the fourth Monday of every month at the Parma Snow Road branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library, 2121 Snow Road, at 6:30 until 8:45 or so. There is no cover charge for that.

Check back to this page frequently for updates on meetings, tournaments, trips and other events!

Welcome to the Facebook home of the Cleveland Crokinole Club! We are a gathering pace for fans of the round board, young or old, beginner or experienced!

Crokinole is a game played on a round wooden board a bit more than two feet in diameter with three concentric circles and a small hole in the center. There are eight irritating pegs evenly spaced around the innermost circle. Your goal is to flick your disks, which are a bit more than an inch in diameter, as close to the center as possible. Into the center hole is best. But, if any opponent's disk is on the board, you have to hit it. It's very simple, but it's endlessly fascinating!
