Pitchnut Board

"The fast, fun, finger-flicking game"

Longest pitchnut game ever?

pitchnut gameMaiko Yanai and Anna Thro played the longest game of pitchnut ever. It began at 6:30pm Christmas Eve and ended at 8pm. I’m not sure how many scratches were involved, but I’m guessing, dozens. The typical pitchnut game lasts five minutes or less. Maybe it took so long because there was a christmas tree in the middle of the board? Their second game lasted 2 minutes, mercifully ended with the poison going in. The third game was a respectable 20 minutes.

Only five pitchnut boards left in stock!

Thanksgiving has come and gone. Hope it was a good one. I built six new boards this fall and only five are left. Be sure to get your order in ASAP. I will be building six more in January, including board #100!

New Pitchnut Hybrid Discovered

I got a lead the other day from Carrom expert, Bruce. He spotted this cool hybrid of pitchnut and carrom (in Canada, they would call it pichenotte). It may be the elusive Archarena game I've heard about but never seen. Instead of screws or pegs, it's got wickets, or arches. I bought the game and should be getting it soon. It's in Sherbrooke, Quebec. I'm guessing it'll be harder to play, since there are no recessed alleys to guide the pieces into the pockets.
