Traditional pub games are a great way to pass time, and they need not be restricted to the pub. Darts is perhaps the best known of traditional games, and with a dartboard from Winmau you can play on the same board as the professionals. Safer throwing games for children are quoits or ringboards, but they will also enjoy skittles, particularly the table-top variety.
Table-top pub games make an interesting change from usual board games. Everyone can enjoy shove ha’penny, tiddlywinks or draughts, while cribbage, backgammon and dominoes will appeal to the more strategic player. Presentation sets from traditional manufacturers like Jaques of London make excellent gifts.
Those with more room to spare might like to try a snooker or pool table; or if they feel more adventurous, billiards or bagatelle. Riley tables come in various sizes and have a long history of use in professional tournaments.
