Hi Makenzie

Well, chunkey is a little big for this board game...or whatever it is.

The smaller discs are about 5cm diameter and I am pretty sure you can't throw a spear through that little hole...a dart maybe but sheesh! talk about smashing the little thing if you don't get the exact hole, hey...

But your images are curious: they aren't all the same size, are they...those discs...hmm...

I don't know...it would depend upon how many of David's discs actually show 'hits' where points missed the hole and got the side...I wouldn't think many would survive a ' miss'...but David doesn't have many discs, does he...

Hmm...a game of 'rings' per chance? Throw your disc on the board on a spike and get this-many-points...?

No...the discs would break if they missed and hit the ground...

I think because of their smoothness they were handled quite a lot while they were doing what they did...not just getting hit by spears or darts, or being thrown at something...no...these guys were being fondled for good luck and either gently or triumphantly being used.

No-one expects a Spanish Inquisition
