  • Hello Britni,
    In a 3 player game, you could each play your own color, so you could just buy an extra set of discs.

  • Hello Michael W.,
    Unfortunately there are not many disc makers in the world and of the 2 that I know of, they don’t produce the 25mm discs for me. I did a quick search online and couldn’t find anyone selling them either.

  • My new Crokinole board came with 25mm (1") discs, and I am desperately searching for extra discs. Apparently this board is sometimes referred to as “mini-crokinole,” but even that term is not standardized. I’ve seen the “traditional” sized board referred to as “mini.” Anyways, I would love to find a source for 25mm discs.

  • I watched a video that said 3 players could play Crokinole. Is this true? If so, can I order a single color of 12 discs? Or would I need 2 full sets (48 total) to play a 4 person/ 2 people per team game? Thank you!
