Created in partnership with the Canadian Curling Association, this rink is over 1 metre long yet is in a box no taller than a baseboard {compact!}. The included instructions are a complete guide to curling, with all of the rules, terms, how to score and even some “tips”!

Each stone is designed and balanced using a ball bearing system emulating the slide of a real stone, creating exciting life-like game play!

Curling surface measures approximately 47″ long x 11″ wide. Includes compact curling sheet, ball bearing stones (4 red and 4 yellow), 2 surface cleaners, storage bag for stones and surface cleaners, and illustrated rules and instructions. For 2 – 8 players, this game has an ARV of $19.95.

My girls were thrilled to try out the Compact Curling Game. My daughter learned how to play the real deal in school yet it’s something that she gets to do very infrequently {ok, never}. Needless to say, she was excited to test her skills and hopefully teach the twins and I a thing or two.

It’s not as easy as you think! I’m not sure if my curling skills were that rusty {it’s been since I was in Junior High, maybe?}, or if this is just one challenging game. Yet for those that think this could be easy, oh no way! 

That being said, it’s definitely fun to play with others and see who’s the best or in our case, who isn’t that good at all! Practice will hopefully make perfect, fingers are crossed!
