Often known as INDOOR SKITTLES or BAR SKITTLES, this is one of the most POPULAR PUB GAMES. Just like full alley skittles, each player has three attempts to knock down the skittles but, in this space saving version, the ball is swung around a pole toppling the skittles upon its return. A game of great skill for serious pub competition or just good old-fashioned fun for children and adults.
Ingeniously designed and upcycled in the UK by master craftsmen this skittles set has been created from vintage spinning bobbins and a distaff that has been salvaged and has been used for the upright part of the set
The set includes a sturdy base, a swinging pole and 6 8CM WOODEN SKITTLE PINS, when assembled the set measures approx. 15cm diameter x 31cm (H) |6 Inches diameter x 12.25 inches (H)
Skittles or Nine Pins as played on an alley is still one of the most popular pub games and is the ancestor of several games including ten-pin bowling. However, it does take up a lot of space and so it's no surprise that the miniaturised versions of the pastime eventually started to appear.
To prepare the game each of the six miniature pins are positioned on a small platform within the round game board. In the corner of the board, stands a pole with a knotted string that bears a single bead ball suspended from the top. The ball is swung around the pole in such a way that upon its return, it ploughs through the six skittles on the base.
