Why we love Pucket / ET Games:
HANDMADE, SUSTAINABLE, FAIR TRADE / SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE

Find out more about why we love Et Games in our About Curated Makers Section.

Pucket is made by reputable fair trade suppliers in India. The wood - Sheesham, latin name Dalbergia Sissoo - is not endangered, and comes from Indian government managed plantations, which are generally well run.

Having Pucket made in India enables them to support economically weak artisans – but it also increases carbon footprint compared to having the games made in the UK. To minimise this sea transport is used rather than air freight, and shipping emissions are offset via a company called CO2 balance.

Description:
Pucket is a fast paced noisy game. Players race each other to clear the pucks from their side of the board by catapulting them through a small hole leading to the other side. Any pucks that arrive on your side must be sent back before you win.

Pucket is a version of a traditional French game. French artisans would make the game from wood and use cat gut for the elastic, which had to be kept moist during game play to stop it turning limp. The game is still played in France by traditional games enthusiasts.

The game appeals to anyone with a competitive streak. All ages can play, although anyone smaller than around ten years old may have a bad losing temper!

Size: 54 x 40cm, with a beautiful lacquered finish on the playing surface.

Our Advice:
Play it somewhere where you can make lots of noise.
