Skillball (George Best)

A gambling game made in Ireland in the 1970s and featuring George Best. Quite an ingenious invention - punch out the cirlce you believe to be a winner from the grid, the metal prodder will punch out a small circle of card froma block in the back and it will be a winner or loser. Very clever.

The rules

Nice and easy but the tokens released by the metal key when inserted were tiny and I bet many did not fall through the machine correctly.
