Throughout the North American colonies, men and women of all classes enjoyed the popular pastime known as ninepins. The game proved to be an amusing distraction as early as 1636 when young William Ward of Virginia received a reprimand for testing his skill at ninepins instead of watching the cows.
This set of tabletop ninepins has been developed from accounts and print sources provided by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
The 9 wooden pins are 5" H each and the 2 wooden balls are 2" in diameter.
Ages 8 to adult.
Made in the U.S.A.
