From traditional favourites like darts, dominoes, cards and shove-halfpenny, to more recent examples such as petanque and pool, this book describes the rules, regulations and histories of a variety of pub games. The rich seam of pub eccentricity is recognized with the inclusion of such activities as bog snorkelling, conger cuddling and woodlice racing, and the regional specialities of skittles, quoits and nipsy also receive attention. The text is accompanied by photographs and explanatory diagrams.
