Penny hockey is a game for two players. The wooden board game measures 10 inches wide by 16 3/8 inches long by 1 1/8 inches deep. The game is played by shooting the penny "puck" back and forth with your fingers, each player trying to score in their goal. Instructions for playing are included on the back of the board. Painted goal lines and free shot arrows help define the playing surface. Pegs are glued in place. This is very popular as a birthday gift or present for any time of year.
