The Tortoise and Hare is a novel, non-linear board. Its continuous, spiral course is the full 121 holes but that's where normality ends.
The holes for one player start off close together then stretch out. They take off really slowly, like a tortoise, sometimes a lap or two behind, then catch up really fast at the end. Of course their opponent has the opposite experience. They take off like a hare, really fast and are soon laps ahead. But towards the end, they hardly move at all.
In fact, it's designed to be hard to see who is winning at all, changing the bragging dynamic of the game completely. Need something unique you can guarantee they don't aready own? Want to surprise your playing partner? Try the Tortoise and Hare!
The top four edges have a generous chamfer adding to the style of the board. After sanding smooth, this board is brushed with shellac to protect the wood. This board comes as standard with six metal pegs in the color combination of your choice. The pegs live inside a pocket in the back of the board, held securely by a sliding brass plate.
This version includes your own words engraved in the center instead of "Tortoise & Hare". This adds $5 to the price, but allows you to personalize the board, making it even more unique! We'll also paint some deep brown acrylic into the lettering to make it stand out more.
