Games back then. . .

When I was a little girl...I would play Chinese Checkers with mom on a board just like this one. A few years back I found this board at an antique store...I had to have it! 
We enjoy playing it with our grandchildren.
 Hubby got this game board for Christmas when he was a young boy.

He has most of the orginal playing pieces and instruction booklet. At Christmas this board often comes out and games of Crokinal are played. It brings back memories of the Christmas' past when he played with his grandpa, dad and friends.

I'm linking with Vintage Thingie Thursday. Have a look around!

  7. Oh yes, my family spent many hours playing both games! I remember our Chinese Checkers board had metal tubes on the side to store the marbles. Carrom was an all-time family favorite. We used our fingers to propel the rings into the net pockets. Thanks for the memories.
