Play the old-fashioned, traditional game of Tripoley, which is a variation of Rummoli or Michigan Rummy, in style with this luxury wooden gameboard made by Cabinetmaker/Wood Artist Paul Szewc of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. The board is made from solid North American cherry.
Tripoley is a family card game which has been around since the 1940's. All you'll need in addition to the board is a standard deck of cards and a generous supply of chips/coins. This game is very similar to another one of our products, Rummoli. The difference between the games is that in Tripoley, the pay cards are all in the suit of Hearts. Rummoli's pay cards vary in the four suits of the deck. The laser engraving on the board then reflects this difference.
This board will last a lifetime and beyond! A great heirloom to hand down to the next generation. It is not flat—each of the 8 pay-card compartments and the Rummoli centre pot have been routed out, allowing the playing chips to be scooped out, which is easier than picking up all the winnings with your fingers. Very user-friendly!
The playing card images appear at both the top and the bottom of each cup. They are laser engraved and will not wear off. Makes a unique candy dish too!
Playing Cards not included.
NOTE: The larger compartments such as 7-8-9, A/K, etc will hold 200 pennies. Now that's lots of room.
Due to the wide wood grain variance in cherry, the board you receive could differ in colour and grain patterning as shown in the photos. The lighter sapwood is naturally incorporated within the wood itself, not a separate piece.
As wood is a natural living product it can be a little unruly; knots, streaking, other blemishes and flaws in the grain can occur during the natural growth of the tree. These may be present in all our products to some degree but we do control for anything that will seriously interfere with the use or look of our items. We at Masterpiece Lasered Wood, the home of the famous "Wonky" furniture design believe these imperfections add a uniqueness to our products and LOVE us some rebellious wood grain or an interesting knot here or there that doesn't interfere with the use of the item. If you specifically want an interesting grain pattern or knot in your order, let us know and we will try to find something for your tastes.
