Product Description

A really cool fairground style game…

This is a rare and original game dating to the 1960s. Made by Sport Craft Games of Michigan USA, the game is offered in great original condition. Included with it’s original cardboard outer box, the trail of branding and postage marks means this piece oozes with authenticity

The game itself is made in a thin wood and is naively put together with small nails. That said, it is nicely made and hand painted and complemented with a metal stand that allows the game to free stand for ‘game time’. Simply erect the game, take a few paces back and place a marker. Then grab one of the weighted sacks and the game begins… We know that one of the sacks included is original, the other we cannot be sure. Equally, one could easily make several more similar items with some material and some rice (as an example)…

We love the fact that this game exists in the great condition it’s in. It is naively built, therefore there are some jagged edges and some tatty areas, yet we simply feel that adds to its charm and authenticity

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the piece is in good shape, yet there are some surface marks, scratches and paint chipping. There are a few tatty areas to the build here and there as suggested above. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
