Our curling club had a dinner party last week for all the board members. I decided to bring my Crokinole board for after-dinner entertainment.
There's a *ton* of overlap between curling and Crokinole (the strategy, the scoring, the angles), so I figured it would go over well. By the end of the night, though, two if not three people were seriously interested in ordering their own boards. I mean ready to plunk down money, now. Needless to say I was pleased as punch that so many took a shine to it.
Obviously, I've foisted my fair share of games on people. While some do genuinely enjoy the experience, rarely do people ask immediately, "Where can i get this game? I must have it!" Anyone else have instant success when introducing a new game to a group?
Maybe there's just something about curlers...
