Nice collection of boards! The Casino board is very interesting. Are they still being sold?

Zeeple said...

Hi DT, nope to my knowledge thay are not being sold anywhere at all. They have emerged to the top of the out-of-production dartboard heap as the most highly sought after board. I promised String that if I saw another I would nab it for him! Thanks for the comments!

I'm looking for a Harrows Quadro 240 for my fiance. He already has one but it needs to be replaced (it's been well used). Do you know where I get buy one?

Zeeple said...

Hi Deanna, I am so sorry but I do not know where you can get one at the moment. They have not been made for a few years now and so now your best bet is to keep an eye on ebay. That's how I got mine. They seem to come up in ebay UK and ebay Germany more often than ebay US. Higher shipping cost though. Good luck!

Zeeple, I have been researching boards for a while and am looking to make my first purchase. A question you might be able to answer is wether the "Unicorn" board sold under the Sportcraft World Champion name is actually a Unicorn Eclipse Pro? The pics I have seen are similar as far as colors and spider go.

Ben, I am pretty sure Sportcraft and Unicorn are one in the same but I do not know if the Sportcraft World Champion bristle board is of the same quality as the Eclipse Pro. However, I will say this: I took a look at some pictures of the Sportcraft board online and it looks like a _good_ board. It is bristle and has embedded blades (instead of a spider). I would say that if the price is right you should go ahead and get one. But also keep this in mind: Bristle boards eventually wear out and have to be replaced!! Most people who practice frequently have to replace their boards every year. Whatever you decide I hope you hit a TON of Ton-80's!

HI, I have just bought a Snook-A-Dart board today at an antique auction, it is from approx 1970's and has 6 reds and all the 7 colours plus 3 whites with the score board at the bottom, looks like a prototype. We bought it out of curiosity but would love to hear from anyone if they have any knowledge of the game/board or rules, many thanks, Angela

Zeeple said...

Hi Angie, sounds like you have a real good find! I am not sure if I have the rules to my version of the snooker darts board or not, but it sounds like the one you found is slightly different. How much did you pay for it?

Angie said...

Hi Zeeple, thanks for your message, i've done a bit of research and it looks like its the prototype for a game which someone tried to launch through a registered company of the same name based in South Yorkshire in 1975 - it obviously never got past the prototype stage or perhaps it went on to become the snooker dart board. Its great, we love it! Just wish we had the rules - we may have been a bit rash but we paid £80 for it. If anyones interested we could mail a pic. Angie.
