G is for Game
G is for the Carrom Board Game that I received after my grandparents passed away. All the cousins played this game when we had family gatherings. Our parents were usually playing games of Yuker while all all the cousins took turns playing Carrom. The Carrom Game Board company is in Ludington, Michigan. I have lived in Michigan for many years but I am from Indiana and that is where this game board was played with most of its lifetime. I have done some research on Carrom Board Games and found the one I own was produce during the WWII years which means my Dad and his siblings played this same game when they were children. I would call this the front because this is the side we always played on. If you click on the picture for a closeup you will probably be able to see the playing pieces I have stored in the old canning jar.
If you want to learn more about this game you can go to this sitehttp://www.carrom.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=47&Itemid=76
