Hookey with Black Rings
Who doesn't remember the old hookey board hanging on the verandah or nailed to the wall of the backyard dunny? At last, a real set of hookey Grandpa would be proud of. Unlike modern cheapies that are much smaller and made from chipboard, our design turns back the clock and delivers a real full sized board crafted from hardwood. Our premium hookey is beautifully finished in high gloss varnish and comes with 13 hooks and 6 silicon rings in traditional black.
A hookey board permanently in place will bring years of adhoc fun for all. You'll be surprised what the kids and their friends will spontaneously do when a hookey board is just hanging there waiting to be played! So good to see them off their i-gadgets developing real hand-eye coordination. But don't think hookey is just for kids....kids of the grown up variety find this iconic Australian game hard to resist too and its a simple way to have some old fashioned fun over a a few drinks at your next barbecue or party.
Standard rules are a race to a hundred and one (great for the kids' maths) but variations like "round the clock" and "hookey cricket" are also classic variations of this versatile family game.
