So, I am going to have a go at this, probably do it once as I am talking you through it and explaining my thinking, and then I will do it again where it is just me focused on the drill, and we will see how the scores go.
As always, you can do this in any order that you want. So, I am going to start with these ones on the near side and see if I can get myself a nice old ricochet 20. Come up a little short, but that is okay.
Oh, that jammed on me a little. I am not sure if I have taken the best strategy here. May take a few practices at this to decide the best order of operations. There is a 20 that will count at the end. That was touching the line, so it goes off. Just like in regular Crokinole, you are allowed to go through your own, but if you touch your own and you do not hit an opponent’s, you are going to lose everything you have touched. So, this gets tricky.
I could go through my own here, but that is such a tight squeeze. I think instead I am going to go this way. I am going to try to catch that one out there and just hope and pray that I do not put the yellow into the centre. But we will see what happens. The great thing about this, it is not a match. It is just for fun, so you can just go ahead, be wild. It really does not matter what happens because it is just a numerical score at the end.
See, that was not what I wanted. I must watch that back to see exactly what happened.
And now is an opportunity to go for a 20, but I lost my shooter. So, I have 20, 30, 45, 60. So, record that, Mackenzie, 60 points for Jeremy.
Wish me luck. Wish me fun.
Oh, that is what I am talking about. Do you see that? The ricochet combined with the bump and run.
That was fortunate.
And now, we should get both Lydia and Mackenzie to take a run at this so you can just see maybe some different strategies that people take.
That comes down, that is going to go down. What were you shooting? You are shooting black. You cannot remember either? No. Okay, that makes more sense. So then that is going to go there. So, you have 35 points.
Nicely done. Very good. There it is. It is a fun drill. Like I say, complete chaos. You are never sure what is going to happen. There are sometimes you are going to get a freakishly high score. Sometimes it is going to be disastrous. But the point is, it is going to set up fun variations, and it just allows you to grab a better understanding of what happens with the physics of Crokinole buttons bouncing off rubber. We would love to hear how this goes for you and love to hear about you challenging friends and family, near and far, on the near side and on the far side to this great drill.
