This Sierra Crokinole board was made by Stan Hilinski. Stan believes that Crokinole remains popular today because, "It's active. It's easy for new players to play pretty well and have fun. The boards are nice. There's a lot of strategy that's not immediately obvious. It's a nice game to sit around with friends because it seems to foster a nice social atmosphere. And kids like to get involved."
