Carrom Skittles Game
Finely crafted of solid pine, original Skittles has been a perennial rec-room favorite since 1932! Players wind the twine around the top and let it go. The top spins through openings, ricochets off walls, and scores points by knocking down 10 pins. The cabinet sides, ends and partitions are made from solid pine and the game play surface is painted hardboard, screen printed in 1 color, using lead-free materials. The game side and partitions are finished in durable polyurethane. Game includes a hardwood spinning top, braided spinning twine, and 12 hardwood pins.

    This is a very fun game, but it was built terribly. We have to use about 7 coins to level the board. And I wish there was a slot for the piece of twine to enter the game rather than maneuver it through the hole. I've played an old version of this game and it was extraordinarily built. I really like the game, just wish the board was level. And if it came with a case to put it in traveling would be easier. We play it on our kitchen table (which is level) and with the coins underneath the board it works. Planning on buying a $250 set eventually.

          Comments about Carrom Skittles Game:

          My sons discovered this game at the Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown, and since then I have tried to find a reasonably priced replica. Since "Santa" gave it to them on Christmas, they have already spent hours playing the game with family and friends. An excellent value with no assembly required--its sturdy wooden construction is a huge plus.

            This game is addicting. We tried a longer string to add more spin to the top. So much fun we have it on our coffee table and can't leave it alone.

              I love this game thoroughly. I played it as a child 50 years ago and it is
              FANTASTIC to know something is still as well made as the original. Just TOO MUCH FUN and my 5th grade class LOVES IT!.They can't get enough of it. Wish I could afford a few more!!!!

                          My now 30-year-old nephew recalled playing this game as a kid -- he remembered it as "the best game ever" -- so we gave it to him for Christmas. He was thrilled, and he set it up on the table to start playing right away. Soon, the whole family was taking turns, and everybody was having a rollicking good time. It's suspenseful, simple and great fun. What a hit!
